Joseph Oshman is the owner of Lolo Racks, a local Portland brand known for producing one of the best options for vertical racks available. He’s not just the designer of the racks, but a trail shredder that came up from a BMX background.
Frequently found at the local pump track on his dirt jumper or riding dirt jumps and jump trails, he recently took delivery of a new custom steel dual suspension bike. As we share a love for bikes with playful geo numbers that ‘loves back wheel’, I had to know more about his new ride.
What are we looking at?
It’s a custom built Marino from Peru.
Frame material: Reynolds 725 tubing (steel)
Amount of suspension travel: 170mm fork, 150mm rear
Wheel size: 29
Head tube angle: 65.5º (kinda wish I went to 64.5 maybe?)
Seat tube angle: 76.5º
Chainstay length: 432mm (adjustable)
Weight: Don’t know… don’t really care (haha)
Anything cool or interesting about the frame to share?
Slider dropouts so you could make the rear longer to try at Whistler or Coast Gravity. Multiple options for headtube and seat tube gussets. Custom geometry.
How do you get one?
Hit up Marinobike.com and wait a bit. … should cover it..
Custom made Marino frames start at only $550, plus shipping. You’ll need to source a shock as well. Joe has the bike built up with a 12 speed Shimano XT drivetrain and brakes.
