    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Marlin 5

    Expirience with the Marlin 5 2022 The 100 mm fork travel helps you master the on very light trails. Here, the Trek Hardtail really plays to it´s strengths. The moderate 69,5 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The seating position can be described neither as sporty nor as comfortable. It has a moderate character. The Marlin 5 has higher quality wheels than the competitors with comparable prices. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame! Pay attention when selecting your size: the Beginners-Bike of Trek .
