Product Details

Marin Fairfax SC4 Belt 2018 Hybrid Bike

If you're looking for a clean city bike, you'd be hard pressed to find one as handsome as the Marin Fairfax SC4 with belt drive Shimano hub gears

Hydraulic disc brakes. Shimano hub gears with Gates belt-drive. Schwalbe Road Cruiser, 700Cx32, Reflective Sidewall, Kevlar Puncture Protection. The Marin Fairfax SC4 Belt combines some of the best cycle innovations of the last 20 years to create a more reliable, lower-maintenance, everyday commuter bike.

Marin Fairfax SC
The initials 'SC' means this is a Marin Speed Commuter hybrid bike AKA flat-bar 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 Aluminium frame
SHOT Surface Hardened Optimised Tubing technology utilises 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 aluminium frame is optimised for hub gears.
  • The frame's eccentric bottom bracket makes it easier to keep the belt in tension.
  • The frame's belt drive compatible dropouts facilitates removing the wheel.
  • Schwalbe Road Cruiser puncture resistant tyres make it unlikely you'll have to remove the rear wheel.
  • The advantages of a belt belt drive transmission are compelling. The carbon fibre-reinforced rubber belt last around twice as long as a steel chain, it's much lighter, it won't stretch and will never rust so you will never need to lube it. The absence of oil means the belt doesn't attract dirt the way that even a well-maintained steel chain can.
  • 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.

Why you should consider a bike with high quality hydraulic disc brakes - see our blog.

'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.'
