2014 Marin Cortina CX

Marin Rift Zone XC7

Marin Rift Zone XC7

The Cortina is designed and built for competition, but can be used for a wide variety of riding, including as a gravel racer, or versatile commuter. Cortina’s have T3 carbon-fiber frames, disc brakes, wide-range double-chainring drivetrains, and larger 33–35mm tires, with tapered head tubes, Power Taper seat tubes, mechanical/electronic-convertible internal cable routing, and carbon straight-blade forks. Design features include Marin’s responsive R2 Cyclocross geometry—stable through the corners but with an agile front end to hold the line—and wider frameset dimensions to fit larger tires.

 

 

 

 

Upgrades to the Rift Zone XC7 include a Rock Shox Reba RL fork and a lockout on the Monarch rear shock. Shimano’s Deore and SLX components cover the drivetrain, and Shimano’s new Deore hydraulic disc brakes share many of the performance features with the higher end XT and XTR units. The Folding bead tires reduce weight.

To Commute or not to Commute? That is the question!

Posted on January 5, 2013

photoSo it’s that time of year. That test of our commitment to a New Years resolution. Probably the most common resolution is related to getting healthy and losing weight. One of the most common reasons people don’t follow through on that resolution is time. Committing to a 1/2 hour or hour after work to attend some sort of workout regiment is a significant lifestyle change for anybody. One solution to this is to commute to and from work on a bicycle. In fact, if you live in or around Kitsilano and work in downtown Vancouver (or similar distance such as UBC) you can get to work faster then in a car during rush hour.

 

So lets look at some numbers for a Kitsilano resident commuting to downtown Vancouver:

Cost / Benefit By Car By Bus By Bike
Travel Time ~20min ~20-30min ~15-20min
Parking cost /mo $224 n/a n/a
Transit pass /mo n/a $91 n/a
Cost of a bike n/a n/a $450+ (one time)
Annual cost  $2,688* $1,092 $45 Tune-up
Calories /mo 0 0 6000
Pounds /yr 0 0 11 pounds

* Annual cost only covers average parking in downtown Vancouver. Additional costs such as gas and annual maintenance would drive the price up significantly.
