Balancing performance and value, our mid-point Marin Presidio 2 gets a whole load of upgrades over its base model. We’ve built a fast, fun and exciting commuter with a lightweight Series 2 aluminum frame and straight-blade fork. We’ve added a whole load of simplicity and reliability with an internally-geared, Shimano Nexus 7-speed drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, Vee Tire tires and plenty of reliable Marin components.

Presidio frames are constructed of lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing with internal cable routing, and rack and fender mounts. Series 2 tubing on the Presidio 3 and 2 models add belt drive compatible forged slider dropouts for internally geared hubs.

Marin Presidio custom slider dropouts


Our new slider dropouts were created specifically to bring the best
technologies for commute bikes into a clean and tidy package. The
dropouts slide to tension belts and chains, while incorporating flat
mount disc brakes, and a direct mount rear kickstand to support the
bike where weight is centered with gear.

Marin Presidio fork and front disc brake caliper


Hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, controlled stopping in all
conditions with minimal maintenance.

Shimano Nexus rear internally geared hub, as used on the Presidio 3


Internally geared hubs on the Presidio 3 and 2 package the gearing
into a compact, maintenance-free package.

Presidio models can accommodate most tires up to 45mm without fenders, or 40mm with fenders.


I submit that the Marin Presidio 2 might be the perfect bike for the times we live in. It’s billed as a city transit bike, but it’s certainly more comfortable for long rides than the gym bike your buddy was using before. With slick tyres, flat bars, internal gearing, and disc brakes, the Presidio 2 can do anything a beginner would want. If the bug really bites and you decide to upgrade to a road or mountain bike, the Presidio’s reliable build will mean that it will see years of use as a town/commuter bike. Rated 9/10
