Just in time for the holidays, Petaluma, California’s own Marin Mountain Bikes Inc. has released a new bike line just for the lil’ cyclists on your list. We all know, there’s nothin’ better for most kids during the holidays than getting a new bike. And the new Coast Trail line of bikes gives you plenty to choose from.

The new Coast Trail line offers bikes in three different ranges from bikes with 16″ wheels, up to bikes with 20″ and 24″ wheels.

Bike weight is a pretty important factor for smaller riders so the Coast Trail models feature lightweight aluminum frames, forks, handlebars stems, cranks, and rims. These features run through the whole model range.

A lighter bike is easier to ride and control, which, in turn, instills confidence in the rider. The frames on all of the models are designed with generous standover clearance, letting the little tikes easily straddle their bicycles.

Just like the “grown-up” bikes, the entire line of Coast Trail bikes uses internal cable routing, adding to the already clean aesthetic of the line. Plus, on the 20″ and 24″ frames there are downtube bosses for bottle cages.

Not Just Smaller Wheels and Lightweight Frames

Marin’s Product Development Team worked closely with the Marin employees who are parents to ensure that the Coast Trail models had kid-proportioned touch points.

On the Coast Trail line, you’ll find components designed specifically around kids’ smaller statures. For example, smaller saddles, narrower diameter grips, and pedals with smaller platforms.

The line also includes special short-reach brake levers that will pull simple, proven liner-pull brakes for safe and reliable stopping. The special Marin/VEE Tire Speedster balances smooth and easy rolling with an inverted tread down the center.

The Speedster tires also have low-profile side and shoulder knobs that can provide additional traction when your lil’ shralper wants to venture off of the sidewalk or hit the neighborhood paths and trails.
