Expirience with the Marin El Roy

Marin El Roy Review Probably the most extravagant trail hardtail imaginable. The El Roy is a steel frame fan's dream. The flat 0 degree head tube angle of the Marin Hardtail gives the rider lots of confidence in challenging terrain. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the All Mountain of Marin suite the taste of most bikers. With shifting systems, other manufacturers in the price segment under 3000 Euro continue to top up to the shelf. The Marin All Mountain has still a ace up its sleeve. When it goes down the hill, the absolutely coherent geometry always makes you want to come back for more. We like: 5 years warranty on the frame!
