Expirience with the Trek Marlin 7

Trek Marlin 7 Review The Trek Hardtail was designed for use in on long tours. And that's exactly where it shines. The scales remain light for this model, which is, according to Trek, at 13,5 kg. Thus, the Trek Racebike is one of the lighter Racebike that you get for 924 Euro . Thanks to a moderate 69,5 degree head tube angle, the handling is pleasantly balanced. The seating position can be described neither as sporty nor as comfortable. It has a moderate character. Apart from this criticism, the sporty orientation makes the Marlin 7 the best climber in the price range below under 1000 Euro. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek puts a lot of trust in its products. Pay attention when selecting your size: the Racebike of Trek sizing runs small.
