Product Details

2015/2016 Trek Marlin 5

Fishing for a great trail ride is easy with Trek's Marlin. Its super-light aluminum frame features the perfect geometry for its size wheels for superior cornering, climbing and descending. Adding to those attributes is a set of go-fast knobbies and a 75mm-travel fork that smooths the trail and steers you through the roughest terrain. Plus, component highlights include a 21-speed Shimano drivetrain, a host of reliable Bontrager parts and mechanical disc brakes that give you stopping power in all conditions.

    Just purchased the Marlin 5. And I must say it is an awesome mt bike. Glad I shopped locally too, as I almost bought a my. Bike online.ive owned other Trek Mt. Bikes and this is the best one by far, my last one was a Trek 820. So I'm glad I got this Marlin 5, handles excellent and love the 29 inch wheels. Viper red looks really good for this bike too.

      Comments:

      I purchased this bike about two months ago from the local trek store. I have used it to commute around town and ride some of the trails New Mexico has to offer. I've done some easy trails as well as some moderate downhill and single track. The components are entry level but have done very well in both situations. The one thing I changed right away was the front fork. I'm 6'0 and 230 lbs. The suntour fork felt bouncy on the trails and would bottom out easily under my weight. All in all for a "sports" mountain bike I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I would definately recommend to a friend.

      Worst Bike I Have Owned

      • Not Much

      Comments:

      This is the worst bike I have ever owned. The AT-550 wheels are terrible. I've had to have the LBS true them and now I have a broken spoke. These are single walled rims on a mountain bike. Why??? Also, the forks stink as well. I guess I'm going to need to do something about these rims to even think about riding it. Not happy. :-(
