I am pleased to introduce the new spec and colors for our expedition touring bike, Marrakesh. Still offered in either flat bar or drop bar cockpits, with geometries specifically suited for each, Marrakesh is designed to be loaded with up to 90 lbs/40kg, and taken out for a trip or two around the world.
Since it’s introduction in summer 2015, Marrakesh has enjoyed a few unique touring bike experiences.
Our team is proud of the Marrakesh and pleased to announce a few spec changes and new color options!
Details that are new for this model include:
The changes in tires and rims helped us reduce the bikes complete weight by more than 2 lbs., while still preserving the durability and performance characteristics that we expect Marrakesh to deliver.
Marrakesh continues to feature a Cobra Kai CroMoly steel tubeset, Alternator Dropouts, and our Alternator Low-Deck rack that can carry up to 60 lbs/30kg. The bikes wear a Deore drivetrain, Avid BB7 brakes, and our incredibly versatile Cowchipper drop bar or Bend flat bar.
Marrakesh Flat Bar comes in blue or gray/green. Marrakesh Drop Bar comes in black or red.
We think the MSRP of $1,599 is a good value, especially considering the real return on investment could be a long list of life-changing rides. We hope those of you looking for a touring steed consider the Marrakesh as you sort your plans!

I've had a lot of good luck and made a series of choices to be working for the brand and in the bike industry. In 2007 I signed up for the TransIowa just to see if I could complete it. I completed it and discovered a few things about myself in the process. Adventure cycling has been in my blood ever since.
