Marin Larkspur 2 For Everyday Adventures

Picking the best from the mountain bike world and blending it with commuter sensibility, the Larkspur is ready to take you most places worth riding to.

Meet the Marin Larkspur 2

It’s built around a tough, Series 2 Butted CrMo steel frame and fork that’s able to handle rough paths or pub crawls. The Shimano Deore Hydraulic disc brakes, dropper post, 1x drivetrain, and knobby tires are borrowed from the mountain bikes and add to the Larkspur’s go-anywhere capability. Most people will probably use it as a townie, and it’s great at that, too. Its step-through frame lets you rest at stoplights with your feet on the ground.

Key upgrades over the Larkspur 1:

  • Shimano Deore 1x 11 speed wide range drivetrain
  • Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes
  • TranzX dropper post

The Muirwoods RC uses a double butted Series 2 CrMo frame 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 mixed step thru design for easy mounting and dismounting, even with baskets and baby seats. LEARN MORE
