    2011 Marin Bayview Trail Kids Bike (24" Tires) - $175 Shipped

    Credit to TwoTone for posting this up in the Families and Riding with Kids forum. Was a great deal and thought others should know about it.

    I just ordered one this morning and received a confirmation email. The deal is still good to go...

    I verified with Marin before ordering mine and they did make these orange ones for ING.

    I ordered it on the 13th and it's already out for delivery this morning the 15th.

    $175 with free shipping. It's $399 retail.

    It's not a disc frame, but for the price, I'll just use an adapter.

    Here the thing, it comes with trigger shifter already, not top of the line or anything but still better than grip shifters.

    Also, the chainstay is 3/4 of a inch shorter than the Specialized, so learning to wheelie and manual etc.. I feel will be easier

    It's a hell of a deal at this price.

    IAmHolland same here It's getting striped down and all the parts from my 26XS build are getting put on.

    One warning the ISO Flow cranks have the chain rings riveted. I haven't had time to look in detail, had to take to a friends house to hide it. I'll look at it some more to see if you could send them in to get shorten.

    Here are 2 pics, nice looking bike

    That looks a good deal though I do question the authenticity of this being a 2011 model. According to the Marin website this is not the color of a 2011 Bayview.

    However, I would argue that the orange actually looks better....

    EDIT: Oh I think I actually see what is happening. This is the 2011 painted in ING colors. Very clever!

    Yep, TwoTone said he verified with Marin before ordering that they did make these orange ones for ING.

    Yes its been painted for ING. I bought a Marin Alpine trail 29er that ING had for sale a few years ago and it was painted the same color.

    I just received my son's and can verify its the real deal.

    I'm a fool. It seemed too good a deal to pass up so I ordered one. It'll be too big for my son for probably another two years.

    My daughter currently rides an old 24" Hotrock. I thought I might be able to use some of parts on that. Stupid idea that really.

    Think of it as an investment!

    Definitely an investment. I just checked my local Craigslist and someone is selling an '05 Bayview for $175.

    Amazing to think I just got a new one for the same money.

    I agree.... I was "this close" to buying an older Hotrock for $150. I would have invested some more money to upgrade it to trigger shifters and a few other changes. This purchase actually saved me some cash.

    I almost wanted to buy a second one for when the 5yo gets bigger. But, I don't think the wife would have agreed with me on that one.

    Bike arrived today. Color is really cool, much better then in the pics. Free shipping makes for a killer deal. We were thinking we would need to store it a year or 2 for our son, but I think it's a good fit now! Can't wait to hit the trails.
