Product Details

2019 Trek Marlin 7

Marlin 7 is where race-worthy mountain bikes begin. The smooth, lightweight RockShox fork and widest range of gearing in the Marlin family make this model the best choice for new riders who want a cross country hardtail with great parts that will hold its own against Trek's higher-end race bikes.

It's right for you if...
You're new to the trail but have serious singletrack aspirations, and want a race-worthy mountain bike with upgrades on the parts that make a big difference in performance, like a higher quality suspension fork.

The tech you get
The flagship model of the Marlin lineup has a lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminum frame with internal derailleur routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, a high-quality RockShox fork with a lockout feature and 100mm of travel, a 27-speed drivetrain, and a low-profile Shimano Shadow rear derailleur that's made to avoid snagging on trail debris. The quality fork and parts make Marlin 7 fully capable of taking on off-road marathon rides and XC races.

The final word
The RockShox suspension and wider range of gearing make it the best choice in the Marlin lineup for new mountain bikers who know they want a serious bike for their money.

Why you'll love it
- All the value, plus all the versatility—it's a totally race-worthy mountain bike, with rear rack mounts if you use it for commuting too
- It's really fun to ride, and feels like a much more expensive mountain bike
- Great suspension at an even better price
- Like every model in the Marlin family, it's backed by Trek's lifetime warranty

      OK. Since last year, I got it converted to a 1 x 11 SRAM NX drivetrain. It is awesome! New, more grippy tires are on the way...Other things that would make it better and more versatile would be an air fork, and a dropper post friendly seat tube.

        Great bike, everything on this bike is amazing except for the tires which i wore down after 4 months of everyday use of pavement/light trail use. back tire completely worn down. Front suspension is better than any suntour fork on entry level bike(in my opinion). Bike shifts smooth as butter!

        Comments:

        Bought this bike as a spare bike for when my full susp is in the shop, and to rip through the easy moderate trails near my house. I love it! I felt instantly at home on this bike right from the first ride. I found it easy to move around and the 29er wheels are definitely nice. The Tektro brakes are awesome and really grabby. Made a few upgrades to really make it my own and comfy, new saddle, lock on grips, crank brother pedals. Next year, I'll put new better tires on and probably convert it to 1 x 11. There's days I prefer it to my full susp. I will enjoy this bike for a long time!

            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.
