Fishing for a great ride is easy with Trek's Marlin. Its super-light aluminum frame features the ideal geometry to deliver superior cornering, climbing, and descending. A set of go-fast knobbies keep you glued to the trail, and a 75mm-travel fork smooths the bumps, steering 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.
