Marin DSX FS gravel bike review

May 2024

Gravel bikes are just mountain bikes from the ‘90s! We’ve heard this many times, and it looks like Marin has gone with that analogy with the DSX FS. Gravel is a wide-ranging genre that is morphing rapidly filling all of those gaps between road and MTB and I enjoy Marin’s take on things with this bike. It’s a lot of fun to ride because it feels relatively light and nimble, and can accommodate up to 2.1in knobby tyres meaning it’s not just restricted to hardpacked gravel tracks either.

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

Nov 2021 · James Huang

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

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

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