Pine Mountain 2 - "The Most Versatile Bike Ever"
The September 2020 issue of Mountain Bike Action has a stellar review of the Pine Mountain 2. The editor had originally planned on going on bikepacking adventures with it, but then COVID got in the way, so it was reviewed more as a trail bike.
The Pine Mountain 2 may not be your one and only bike, but it would make a perfect addition to any rider’s fleet. At just a touch above $2,000, this bike could be your part-time bikepacking rig or a fun trail-ready hardtail for riding in harsh weather conditions. It’s also the perfect bike for any rider who loves accessories and attachments, thanks to its abundance of mounting points. Overall, Marin did a great job targeting the adventure bike rider and offering a solid platform to build on.
