Gary Fisher Signature 2013 Trek Marlin 29er. Bigger. Better. Badder. 29er.

Trek has unleashed the Gary Fisher Marlin 29er for 2013. I say unleashed because the Marlin is a monster. It’s got a considerably larger wheel and tire combo than a traditional 26 inch mountain bike, enhancing it’s roll-over capabilities.

The 2013 Marlin comes with a Suntour front fork with a lockout, so if you need to ride more street or smoother fire roads you can go from a plush shock to no movement in the shock with just the flip of a switch. This really helps this bike to transition from being “on-road” to off-road.

The frame is solid, and Trek’s G2 geometry really makes a difference in steering response and turning radius. Having said this, it’s even a good bike if you do some XC riding.

The 2013 Marlin also comes with Sram Derailleurs which are durable, and a very positive shift, not to mention quick! The disc brakes are a nice feature on the Marlin, made by tektro and are easy to adjust. 

If this is going to be your first purchase of a mountain bike or you want to impress your friends who are always inviting you to go mountian biking, this would be a great bike to show up on.

So come to Bumstead’s, because you know you have to check out this bike. We’re located at 1038 West 4th St. in Ontario. You can always pick up the phone and call us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. (909) 984-9067

Looking to get into Mountain Biking? Try the 2013 Trek Mamba 29er! Awesome entry level mountain bike for 2013.

Trek pulls no punches with their 2013 Mamba 29er. If you’re just starting out in mountain biking, the Mamba 29er should be at the top of your prospective new bike list. 29er means that it has 29 inch wheels which makes the tracking incredible. These larger tires easily pass over rocks and ruts on those challenging mountain trails. The rims are double walled and eyeleted with a stainless steel washer, which makes them extremely strong and reliable.

Like most of their 2013 bikes, the Mamba features G2 geometry, giving you good handling at both high and low speeds. Trek has changed the front head tube and the shock crown angle so that it steers just as quick as a 26” wheel bike.

Enough about the specs of the bike; come to Bumstead’s Bicycles today so you can take a test ride. We are located at 1038 West 4th Street in Ontario. Or, if you feel like chatting, you can call us at (909) 984-9067.
