THE SOUL OF MARIN  Halfway across the Golden Gate Bridge, hundreds of feet above San Francisco Bay, is the southern boundary of a very different place. As you cross that line, you enter a different world, full of open space, quiet roads, and trails with amazing vistas—and far from the rush of city life. As the terrain changes, so too do the people. Life becomes less frenetic, more laid back, and more engaged with time and place. This is Marin County, the birthplace and home of Marin Bikes California.

From the original mountain bike frame made on his kitchen table in Lake Elsinore, CA to those being produced today, Intense Cycles founder/designer/president, Jeff Steber has taken his artform seriously. It is his personal mission to design and refine each model to achieve the highest possible level of performance and craftsmanship. Steber has spent over 20 years developing this art. He works closely with industry leaders and professional racers to utilize the latest technology in order to produce a product unmatched by any competitor.
