2021 Marin Rock Spring

2021 Marin Rock Spring

We’ve received our first deliveries of the new Marin Rock Spring hardtail mountain bike here at Scotby Cycles, for those familiar with the Marin range might not recognise the model name from the familiar Bobcat Trail or Bolinas Ridge.

This is because the Rock Spring is a model which as been created from available components, we presume those that were due to go onto other models which can no longer be built because of other component shortages, last year Cannondale did something similar with a range of Trail models and badged them as limited editions.

Built for the Trail

The Rock Spring is built around the same trail-capable Series 1 6061 aluminium frame that the Bolinas Ridge 1 is - so whilst the model might be a bit of a Frankenstein it is going to be really quite a handy trail mountain bike, especially with the Suntour XC fork which provides 100mm of trail-smoothing travel - this range of forks isn’t unfamiliar to us as it features on quite a few similar models from the likes of Cannondale, GT and Specialized around this price range.

SR Suntour XCM Fork

Marin Rock Spring 1

Tektro Disc Brakes

Specification

The two models are almost identical, both use the same dependable Tektro hydraulic disc brakes and the aforementioned 100mm SR Suntour XC suspension fork - they both use the same cockpit components, the same saddle, handlebars and other touchpoint components.

However, they differ in terms of their drivetrain or gearing, the Rock Spring 1 featuring a budget-friendly basic 8-speed Shimano Deore focused system whereas the Rock Spring 2 uses a more performance orientated Shimano Alivio/Altus 9-speed drivetrain with a more modern double chainring as opposed to the triple on the Rock Spring 1.

The suspension fork on the Rock Spring 2 also supports BOOST - long story short, BOOST should make upgrading the wheelset at a later date easier if you so choose.
