Product Details

Marin Fairfax SC2 IG 2018

Flat bar commuting bike with low maintenance Nexus hub and 700Cx32, Reflective Sidewall, Kevlar Puncture Protection tyres

Marin Fairfax SC
The initials 'SC' means this is a Marin Speed Commuter hybrid bike AKA flatbar road bike. In other words, it matches close to road bike-like speed potential with the flat bar control you will be familiar with if you're used to a mountain bike.

Marin SHOT Tech 6061 Aluminum frame
SHOT Surface Hardened Optimized Tubing technology utilizes a multi-stage manufacturing process that includes heat treatment, tube shape manipulation and shot peening to create a frame that is lighter, stiffer, stronger and better-handling than one built with standard heat-treated tubing.

  • The Fairfax's 73.5 degree seat tube /72.5 degree head tube (medium frame) 'relaxed road bike' geometry makes for a sprightly ride.
  • The 6061 aluminum frame is optimised for hub gears.
  • Schwalbe Road Cruiser puncture resistant tyres make it unlikely you'll have to remove the rear wheel.
  • The Shimano Nexus 8-speed gear mechanism is enclosed in the rear hub so it requires less maintenance.
  • Its gear range is equivalent to an 11-38 cassette - i.e. low enough for steep hills.
  • Nexus allows you to shift gear when the bike is stationary. Just like you can in a car.
  • This is really useful if you have to stop at the bottom of a hill.  No need to pedal off in too high a gear.

'The Fairfax and Terra Linda make up our Speed + Commute line, built for the flat-bar fitness road rider with the accessory mounts and gear range for the everyday commuter.'
