Does that thing still exist? Surprised if Marin hasn’t dumped it after having what seems like exponentially greater success with affordable conventionally designed bikes.

Seems like Polygon might be starting to move on with that new 6 bar configuration.

I think last year may have been it's last production for Marin.

Not gonna lie. The welds don't look great. Very blobby. Aesthetically at least. :/

I was shocked when I saw them too. As long as its a good joint the looks don't technically matter, but it's a shame with that paintjob

I shouldn't throw stones as my brazing isn't perfect...but I am just a guy in his garage building bikes for myself no pretense that I plan to sell anything.

I can weld better than that and I never claimed to be a welder or good at it at all. Pretty rough for sure.
