Marin Bikes was one of the first companies to produce high-quality production mountain bikes. The bike maker was founded in 1986 in Marin County, California, where mountain biking was born. The company was quite successful and expanded its line. By the early 1990s, Marin was producing titanium full-suspension mountain bikes, hybrid and road bikes. The company also makes women-specific and children's bikes.

Here's what Marin has to say about its Four Corners touring bikes: The Four Corners is built for the adventure rider looking to explore deep off of the beaten path, sleep outdoors, and be ready for whatever pavement, dirt road, or light singletrack is around the next corner. The heads-up bar position and generous braze-ons that make it possible to live on the bike for days at a time are equally at home on the daily commute.

This bike will accept disc brakes. Note the braze-on attachment near the bottom of the fork. The paint job is an interesting green-to-brown iridescence that changes with the viewing angle.

That odd-looking braze-on near the bottom of the seat stay is the rear attachment for a disc brake. Note the strong socket rear dropout and the seat-chain-stay reinforcement.
