Expirience with the Trek Marlin 4

Trek Marlin 4 Review The in light terrain of Trek is made for in light terrain use. Thanks to a moderate 69,5 degree head tube angle, the handling is pleasantly balanced. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Trek Racebike wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. If a high-quality shifting system is particularly important to you, you probably will not be happy with the Trek Hardtail. An argument still remains extremely strong: compared to the competitors in the same price segment, Trek spec significantly better brakes. Trek gives 25 years warranty on the bike. Pay attention when selecting your size: the Racebike of Trek sizing runs small.
