The Fairfax 1 is the most affordable in the collection. Named “Best Hybrid” many years running by Wirecutter it’s built around a lightweight Series 1 aluminum frame and a sturdy CrMo fork and comes with a 3x7-speed Shimano drivetrain, Clark’s mechanical disc brakes and plenty of reliable Marin components.
Why choose a step-through bicycle frame? Traditionally designed for female riders wearing skirts, the step-through has evolved to suit anyone that prefers a frame that’s far easier to swing a leg over. They’re ideal for less flexible riders, slow-speed urban cycling and riders that need to load their bike up with bags or kids.
Key upgrades from Fairfax 1/1 ST:
- Series 2 Fitness frame
- Straight blade aluminum fork
- Shimano Acera/TY710 2x8 drivetrain
- Vee Tire Zilent tires w/puncture protection
Caution: For logistical reasons, the bikes sold in our store are shipped partially disassembled. For most brands, this means that the saddle, front wheel and handlebars are removed. Assembly requires basic knowledge, however, it is recommended to have the bicycle assembled at a specialized bicycle service center. Bicycle manufacturers require a basic preliminary inspection at a specialized bicycle store, which is one of the warranty conditions.
