The Larkspur is our "adventure mixte," blending old-school style and modern components, with a sweet steel frame. Use it to bomb around your neighborhood, light off-roading, or general commuting
The Marin Larkspur has all the looks of an old-school step-through but with chunky tanwall tires, wide rims, powerful disc brakes and the option of a dropper seat post. Beneath those old-school looks is a super modern and Marin Bikes-made steel frame and plenty of today’s standards to keep it right up to date.
Why just roll to the deli or ride to work when you can take a detour down your favorite dirt track on the way? It's an adventure bike, it's a gravel bike, it's a mountain bike, it's a commuter bike... it's whatever you want it to be.
The Muirwoods uses a butted Series 1 4130 CrMo frame and fork
with 29” tires, disc brakes, full fender and rack mounts, and two
bottle bosses. The Muirwoods RC uses a double butted Series
2 CrMo rame with sliding dropouts for internally geared hub
compatibility and large volume 650B wheels and tires. Larkspur
models also feature the butted Series 2 frame with a mixte stepthru
design for easy mounting and dismounting, even with baskets
and baby seats.
WIDE-RANGE 1x DRIVETRAINS
Both Larkspur models are built around modern, wide-range drivetrains, 10-speed on the Larkspur 1 and 11-speed on the Larkspur 2. These drivetrains are stout and have all the gearing most anyone could use, without relying on sometimes-fussy front derailleurs. Clutch-type rear derailleurs and narrow-wide front chainrings keep the chain on track, all the time.
Hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, controlled stopping in all
conditions with minimal maintenance.
