These are great deals, but according to Reddit, may not have a warranty from Marin. I think they're good enough deals that it might be worth the risk, but just a heads up.
This was apparently posted to Facebook by a Marin dealer (I saw it on Reddit):

(See below, posted by a local Marin dealer on FB. TLDR: Marin will not honor warranty for any of their bikes sold through CRC.)

Dear Valued Customer,

As you may be aware, Performance Bicycle declared bankruptcy in November of 2018. Marin was the top selling bicycle brand in their stores, and there was significant inventory in both their retail stores and their warehouses at the time of their falure.

The bulk of their inventory was sold off in store liquidation sales, conducted from December 2018 through February 2019. However, there was also significant inventory left in their warehouse, which the bankruptcy court held back from the liquidations. These retained assets, along with the other physical and intellectual properties, were sold off by the court appointed auctioneers.

The inventory, together with most of the IP, was purchased by Advanced Holdings, and Tiger Capital group, which together formed a new company called "Bike Co.". Bike Co. then brokered a deal to sell off the remaining stock of Marin bikes to the UK-based online retailer Chain Reaction Cycles, without any notification to Marin Bikes.

We take this grey market resale of our brand very seriously, and explored any options to reacquire the bikes.
• Through our group, we made a good faith effort to purchase the bicycles back from CRC, but were unsuccessful in interesting CRC in selling them back to us.
• We explored any options available to enforce our trademark rights to stop their sales. Unfortunately, US bankruptcy laws are designed to repay creditors where possible, and specifically disallow enforcement of trademark rights on auctioned assets.

We realize that this will have an impact in our market, and we deeply regret it. The presence of Marin on CRC's online store is not of our choosing. Marin was never paid by Performance Bicycle for these bikes, and did not sell them to CRC.

Since these bicycles are not being sold through our authorized dealer network, they will not be covered by the Marin warranty. If you are requested to deliver warranty service to a consumer who bought these bikes through CRC, you may notify them that the seller they bought from is not authorized by Marin, and the bikes sold by them are therefore are not covered. If they have questions about this, you may refer them to us at customer.service@marinbikes.com.

Marin stands behind its products, when assembled and delivered by an authorized dealer. We realize that this may cause some disappointment for a consumer that purchased one of these bikes, but we feel it is better to protect our distribution policies, in spite of the risk of disappointing a consumer.

Again, we sincerely apologize for this situation. It is unfortunately beyond our control, and we regret it deeply.

If you have any quesitons about this, please feel free to contact myself, or Sean Walters.

Respectfully,

Matt VanEnkevort CEO Marin Mountain Bikes, Inc Matt.vanenkevort@marinbikes.com

Sean Walters VP of Business Development Sean.walters@marinbikes.com

Performance never paid them. The bankruptcy court did after all the dust settled. It's subtlety and slight of wording that makes it all the more seedy

Most manufacturers don't offer warranty service when purchased from unauthorized dealers. Pretty standard.

A friend just bought the Rift Zone 2 from Chain Reaction Cycles. The brakes are set up for UK riders, which means that the front brake will be on the right and the rear will be on the left.

Just got the Rift Zone 2, Better bang for your buck then the Zone 1 or 3. Rift Zone 2 for $1303 shipped no tax with the $20 off coupon makes this a fantastic price for a very very good bike. Dropper post and 1x11 and full air suspension. My hard tail is just annoying to ride very long and very uncomfortable. Lots of Reviews out for the Rift Zone 2 and everyone likes it.

Never heard of this brand. Might as well be named Huffy!

This brand is really famous, if you haven't heard is because their roots are in Californian and focus on mountain biking, and don't have that big of marketing, marin county bikes.

Good prices on the Marin's (Felt too, see OP's other post https://slickdeals.net/f/13150483-mountain-bikes-up-to-55-off-felt-decree-40-1375-doctrine-6-1380-de...)

I picked up a Marin Nail Trail 6 29er & a Rock Spring 1 27.5 for my daughter.. Hers is already stateside (supposed to be delivered today, but that isnt going to happen) and mine is still in the UK, but has an estimated deliver date of Friday.

If you happen to be a medium frame you can still get the Base in 27.5 or the upgraded rock springs 1 in 27.5 or 29.. The Rock springs 2 is available also but its another 200 bucks. Probably worth it for the Rockshox front fork & 1x drivetrain though.

Great post!!! Thanks so much. Just got a Rift Zone 2 as well. Got into MTB a few years ago with a Trek XCaliber 7 hardtail, and this one will be my first full suspension bike. Quick question for more experienced bikers - can the brakes be switched to what we are used to here in the US (rear brakes on the right)?
