Team Lost Coast Brewery is very excited to announce that we are partnering with Marin Bikes for 2008 as our official bike sponsor! Marin has graciously provided all team members with an Indian Fire Trail frame, their light weight, race-ready aluminum hard tail with hydro formed tubing in ultra-sexy team white. The Indian Fire Trail got a stellar review from Mountain Bike Action magazine in 2007 for a good reason, this bike flies! It’s fast and responsive on the climbs, and surprisingly nimble on the descents. I’ve been riding my 15 inch IFT for the past couple of weeks and I absolutely love it! The aggressive riding position has really increased my confidence the downhills. Click here for more info.
We will also be riding on the Marin Quad XC full suspension bike at select events. Voted 2007 All Mountain Bike of the Year, the cleverly designed Quad XC tears it up as the boss on descents and stiffens up for hard climbs alike. It’s a purpose-built trail bike, but inspires enough confidence that Brian Astell plans to race it in XC events as well as Super D races. Check out this winning review of the Quad XC for 2008.
We are thrilled to be working with Marin for the coming season. Marin, located in Novato, CA has been making some of the best bikes on the market for over 20 years. From world cup downhill bikes to reliable city commuters, their company offers a full line of bikes to get out and enjoy your world on two wheels. Team Lost Coast Brewery is a Northern California team and we feel very fortunate to be working with one of the most recognized and established bike companies in our region. Mark at Marin bikes has been very helpful in getting everything set up for the team and providing us with our bikes Thank you Mark and Thank you Marin for your support in 2008! We look forward to representing Marin!
