2019 TREK | Marlin 6 Mountain Bike

Marlin 6 is a quality introductory cross country mountain bike with front suspension, 24 speeds, and a wide range of gearing for easier pedaling on climbs. It's built in Trek's trail heritage, but also equipped with features like mounts for a rack and kickstand that make it a great choice for daily commuters.

It's right for you if...

You're testing the waters of off-road riding, and want a real mountain bike at a great value, with a wide range of gears to cover more ground on the road and trail.

The tech you get

The heart of Marlin 6 is a lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminum frame with internal derailleur routing. It has 24 speeds, a wide-range cassette so you can always find the right gear for your terrain, hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes, and a 100mm suspension fork with a lockout feature—that's the same amount of travel favored by most cross country racers.

The final word

Performance features like suspension lockout, stronger double-walled rims, and hydraulic disc brakes. It's also equipped with rack and kickstand mounts and a wider range of gears. These design details make it a great choice if your mountain bike doubles as your commuter.

 

Why you'll love it

  1. Lots of gears so you can cover a lot of ground fast, without ever pedaling too easy or too hard
  2. Smaller frame sizes (13.5" and 15.5") have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
  3. It has separate brake and shift levers (a feature that's common on more expensive mountain bikes) so you can fine-tune the positioning for comfort
  4. Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
  5. Like every model in the Marlin family, it's backed by Trek's lifetime warranty
