    Comments:

    I bought this bike around 6 months ago and am starting to slowly get more and more aggravated with it. I ride 3-4 times a week on advanced trails and this bike was clearly not meant for it.The suspension fork is pretty much rock hard even when on.(I'm 149lbs) The brakes are absolutely terrible and the gears shift pretty bad. Starting to realized Trek uses cheap products on most of their bikes. Going to be trading this in very soon to get a different bike. Would not buy trek again.

    Monster of a Bike

    Pros

    • Large

    Cons

    • Squeaky brakes

    Best Uses

    • Gravel
    • Trails

    Comments:

    I'm 6'7" and the 23" Marlin 5 makes me feel small for once. It's a great fit and the ride is smooth and easy. The only issue I've had are the squeaky brakes, but I've gotten used to them.

    Comments:

    It is a great bike for the price. It looks cooler than bikes that cost almost double the price. Not recommended for extreme or downhill riding but it is more than good for cross country or trail riding

    Comments:

    I've only had the bike for about two months now, and for my local trails it has worked fine. I haven't had any real problems with this bike either, except for the fact that the suspension fork only has the options open or closed. I would prefer a way to have it only half way open. Other than that I cannot complain about the bike for the price.
