MARIN SAN RAFAEL DS4 2017

This brilliant blue machine is one of the prettiest bikes we've ever seen. Shimano Deore disc brakes and 3x10 gearing make it a top performer for the money.

Marin San Rafael has been a trusted hybrid bike model since its introduction at the turn of the 21st Century.

DS is Marin code for Dual Sport. This highlights the fact that a Marin San Rafael DS falls in the 'rugged hybrid bike' category, equally at home on tarmac or on light trails.

The 6061 aluminium frame design is especially clean and thought out with, for instance, internal gear cable routing.
Like most hybrid bikes, the Marin San Rafael DS4 is full mudguard and rear rack compatible.
The SR SunTour suspension fork smooths bumpy roads and tracks.
Its hydraulic lockout lever makes it easy to switch off the fork's 63mm travel when it's not required - for instance on out-of-the-saddle climbs.
Shimano Deore Rapidfire Plus 3x10 gear shifters and derailleurs deliver sure shifting over a massive range of gears, courtesy of the 12-34 cassette and 48/36/26 chainrings, which deliver a gear for near-any ridable terrain.
Schwalbe Smart Sam Performance 700 x 40c tyres are smoother rolling on tarmac compared with MTB knobblies, but still offer decent grip in the dirt.
Genuine Shimano stoppers deliver the undeniable benefits of hydraulic disc brakes.
The benefits of hydraulic disc brakes is that they are mechanically more efficient than cable-operated brakes when it comes to that essential function of bicycle brakes - the pads engage and release more efficiently and the braking is more controlled and modulated.
Another significant factor is that hydraulic hoses, unlike cables, are not prone to fraying, rusting, kinking and breaking. This fundamental difference explains why hydraulic brakes require far less maintenance and adjustment than cable-operated brakes.
Moving the brakes from the mud and rain-attracting wheel rims to the relatively clean hubs make for an improvement in the brakes' all-weather all-conditions performance.
Disc brake pads are much harder so they last much longer. So do the rims now that they are no longer worn down by the brake pads.
Rugged Commuter Bikes
Some lucky riders with plenty storage space own a selection of bikes. If you only have the budget, space or inclination to own just one bike, and want one that works well over the widest spectrum of conditions, a rugged commuter/hybrid such as the Marin San Rafael DS4 is well worth considering.

Its suspension forks and wide 700x40 tyres make bikes like this intrinsically more off-road capable than, say cross bikes or comfort commuter bikes. Pannier rack and mudguard compatibility boost their versatility. A reasonably skilled rider could take one of these bikes round a trail centre blue route. Their 700c wheel size means it is no surprise that these bikes are sometimes mistaken for 29er MTBs.

'Marin San Rafael DS4
The San Rafael DS4 is the ultimate traveling partner, whether its a weekend excursion or year-long journey. The lightweight Series 3 aluminum frame features full rack and fender mounts for accessories as well as our Dual Sport geometry, which is designed to offer stable handling regardless of terrain. A Suntour NCXD fork with hydraulic lockout offers plush control in the rough while being able to roll fast for pavement riding. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes keep the bike in control in any situation rain or shine, and a Shimano Deore premium 30-speed drivetrain gives you the smooth shifting and wide gear range to tackle any grade of terrain.'
Marin.
