Product Details

2016 Trek Marlin 7

Trek's Marlin 7 is one heck of a catch. Its Trek super-light Silver Series aluminum frame features excellent geometry for superior cornering, climbing and descending. Adding to those attributes is a set of steamrolling Bontrager wheels and a 100mm-travel fork that smooths the trail and keeps you in control through the roughest terrain. Plus, component highlights include a slick-shifting Shimano 27-speed drivetrain, a host of reliable Bontrager parts and Tektro disc brakes for awesome stopping power in all conditions.

      On or off trail a comfortable durable bike. I love the adjustable front suspension. I did change the stock seat which was verrrry uncomfortable for me. The disc brakes stop on a dime. I has a Marlin 6 and like this one much better. Can't beat it for the price...

      Great bike, if you are contemplating getting this bike then GO FOR IT! Highly recommend. If you are deciding between the Marlin 6 and 7, get the 7; the suspension control makes it worth your money. All around great bike!

      This bike is perfect if you ride in the mountain and if you love off road. you can also easily jump with it and take risks tp have fun. this bike is very confortable and a long trip on it would not annoy you. You can go really fast on a downhill without panic, the brakes are excellent.

      This bike really impressed me. Was looking for a good hardtail to ride for under $1,100. I couldn't be happier with the Marlin 7. I rode much more expensive bikes and preferred this over them. Of course I changed the cranks, bottom bracket, pedals, grips, converted to a XT 1x10 setup, and got a better set of tires for my type of trails. All in all I am super pleased with this bike. I would buy it again and again. Compared it to many competitors and glad I made the right choice. I also came in way under budget. The sr fork is adequate for most trails in my area but that would of loved a slightly better suspension. For the price I Cant complain though.

      WOW... for this price point this is a great bike. Now mind you I am new to Mountain biking, but this bike is amazing. Trek hit it out of the park! Brakes are amazing, wheels, frame, shifters, gears, pretty much everything but seat is on point!
