Marin DSX 2 gravel bike review: Budget flat-bar fun, but bring extra tubes - CyclingTips

James Huang

A fun and entertaining machine that won’t break the bank, but also a rough ride and a short reach.

  • Dedicated flat-bar frame design, very generous tire clearance, mostly smart spec, wallet-friendly pricing.

  • Reach could still be longer, non-tubeless tires and rims, rough ride quality.
