Marin call the Mill Valley their 'ALP Bike' - for Aerodynamic Lightweight Performance. While a hybrid is a cross between a racing bike and an ATB, the ALP bike is more of a pure road bike, albeit with flat bars. Alpine-worthy even.
- Same full butted aluminium frame spec as the Marin Point Reyes.
- Formula Aero wheels: 16-spoke front, 20-spoke rear.
- Shimano Tiagra road race derailleurs - higher geared than hybrid gearing.
- Avid Shorty - the only V-brakes regularly rated as highly as Shimano's.
