What Makes a good ride?
Besides great staff, beautiful scenery and great wine, a great bike makes a great ride. At Gears and Grapes Getaways we use a variety of bike types to suit every person's need. We offer a wide selection of bikes and sizes that vary depending on availability. This years fleet includes the following road and hybrid bikes:
Our Fleet of 2010 Marin Bikes:
ALP Series : Marin's ALP, or Aerodynamic Lightweight Performance, series gives riders who are less accustomed to road bikes a new option to go fast and conquer longer rides or commutes. Part road bike and part Hybrid, the ALP series combines the fast moving wheels and gearing of a road bike with the stable and upright riding position of a hybrid, offering riders a more secure hand position for piloting down backroads or through traffic. Available in carbon and aluminum versions, the Marin Lucas Valley is Carbon and Aluminum-Light and quick, yet stable and secure. The perfect wine and bicycling combination.
Marin's new Hybrid series provide a quick and efficient ride with comfortable features that keep you smiling on your commute or neighborhood ride. New lightweight Edge 3 Alloy frames and fast rolling 700c wheels offer a lightweight package for effortless pedaling. An adjustable stem, upright handlebars and wide-range gearing make these bikes fun and functional.
The Argenta is Marin's comfortable style road bike. Categorized as a Natural Fit bike, the Argenta offers a more natural, upright position to place the rider in a comfortable, yet efficient riding position. Lightweight Hydro Edge Road tubing is mated to carbon fiber forks and seatstays which aid in shock absorption reducing rider fatigue, allowing you to pedal faster and farther.
