Re: marin mill valley vs another bike

Looks like a nice bike. I also like the specs of the Marin "Lucas Valley" which is a slight downgrade in components for $400 less. Though they are listed as flat bar road bikes, both are geared a bit lower than a true road bike, have larger tires, and have tube angles more like a mountain/hybrid bike. Just something to consider.

If you don't mind me asking, why do you need a flat bar? A drop bar provides so many more hand positions.

Mill Valley, Lucas Valley... do they do a Corte Madera model too?

They should do a tandem called 'Happy Valley' as a his and hers model.

Because of your physical limitations, I don't have any blind recommendations to give you via the internet. I just suggest describing your issues to your local bike shop and riding several different styles of bikes.
