Marin San Quentin 24
Get your little riding buddy on a fast and capable bike and you’ll get to ride faster yourself.
The Marin San Quentin is a premium quality off-road rig with better features than every other kids’ hardtail mountain bike out there. To start with, you get quick-release levers on the rear wheel and seatpost, and a thru-axle for the front wheel. You get a 1x drivetrain with 11 gears (shifting with a trigger-shifter instead of a twist-grip). Parts that are often constructed out of heavy steel on other kids’ bikes are made from light aluminum on this one. There’s a cartridge bottom bracket that’ll keep the water out of the crank area, and the control cables are fully shielded from the levers to the derailleurs which will protect the wires from rust and grit.
This Marin has an air-sprung Rockshox suspension fork with aluminum (not heavy chromed steel) sliders and an adjustable spring rate and a lock-out switch.
Oh wait, the brakes! Did we mention that you get Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on this bike? Yep. That’s right. A kids’ bike that actually stops when they want it to stop. How about that?
Get your little buddy this Marin and she’ll be leading you down the trail instead of lagging behind.
