Jacob's Marino Purple Rain

Purple Rain

"Ever since forgoing my fancy Santa Cruz Bronson 2 for a hardcore steel hardtail, I fell in love with the material. Geometry wise, nothing on the market satisfied my needs for extremely long, extremely low, and extremely slack, so I found someone who could make EXACTLY what I wanted. I was so happy with my design, I've even got another one in the works, so stay tuned!"
