"A Great Option For Commuting, Fitness, and Fun and Hopefully a Gateway Bike to a Life Full of Cycling."
Cycling Weekly's 9/10 Review of the Presidio 2.
"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."
