    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Marlin 7 gen 3

    Trek Marlin 7 gen 3 Review You shouldn't overuse the term, but the Marlin 7 gen 3 is a classic in the lineup of the Americans. As an affordable hardtail, this Trek has already paved the way for 10,000s of people into MTB sports. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Trek is a very balanced customer. The seating position is sporty. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 14,6 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. All in all, in the on long tours category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong.
