Marin Fairfax hybrids
Classic Cycle stocks a lot of hybrid and flat-handlebar road bikes. Why did we add this Marin to an already fairly crowded showroom?
A lot of little reasons.
The Fairfax SC3 has quality parts for a great price. There’s the super tough Schwalbe tires (with reflective sidewalls). There’s the Tektro 285 hydraulic disc brakes (on a bike under $800). The shift cables are routed inside of the frame tubes. The stock saddle is really comfortable and has a durable waterproof cover. The rear Shimano Alivio rear derailleur is the shadow design, which means the derailleur is tucked in closer to the wheel, away from the pannier area and out of danger in the event of a spill…
…And the bike looks really nice. The gloss black with red accents is pretty refreshing in a sea of matte grey commuter bikes.
