Bumsteads TOP Bikes – 2015 Trek Marlin 6 29

Ready For The Challenges on the Trail and a Full Mountain Biking Experience? You're Ready for Marlin.

When a bike this fun comes along, you jump on it. Trek's Marlin 6 makes entry level fast and fun with a playful aluminum frame and size-appropriate wheels.

Up front, the suspension fork gives you 100mm of travel, it laughs at trail obstacles and keeps you out of trouble. Then, add the 24-speed Shimano drivetrain, a host of reliable Bontrager parts and powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes and you're in for years of riding. You may want to call in sick tomorrow, the trail is calling.

— Hydraulic disc brakes offer simply the best stopping power around, regardless of the weather conditions you can come to a stop within an instant

— Alpha silver aluminium frame and Suntour suspension fork help offer a light-weight and highly rugged design which is ready for just about any trail out there!

— Rack & mudguard mounts make kitting out the Marlin for every day use an easy and quick job!

One of the biggest and still on-going debates in the Mountain Biking scene is what is the best Wheel Size? Every rider wants to know which size is best for their size and the terrain they will be riding, but don’t have the chance/funds to properly test out all the options, this is where Smart Wheel Size technology comes in…

After countless hours of testing and data analysis Trek have come to a conclusion on what wheel size each rider should be using. For the smaller riders out there the 27.5" option is the far superior option, this is because the 29" option is typically too large for the rider to receive the full benefits of its speed and handling, basically it is all about riding the fastest wheel possible that fits.

This system helps you focus more on the actual performance of the frame, rather than focusing firstly on the wheel size then the frame. This ensures you get the ride you are exactly looking for without all the previous hassle!
