It's right for you if...
You’re looking for a versatile, wallet-friendly frameset you can build up exactly the way you want. You'll fly through singletrack, tackle rugged, all-terrain commutes, or both, depending on how you spec it.
The tech you get
A lightweight and sturdy Alpha Silver Aluminum frame, internal routing to protect cables from the elements, mounts for a rear rack and kickstand, and a headset. Designed with Smart Wheel Sizing: smaller frames fit 27.5˝ wheels and larger frames fit 29˝ wheels.
The final word
It's a light and capable frameset at a great value. You can spec it as a solid cross country mountain bike without breaking the bank, or build up a rugged commuter that easily handles potholes and rough roads.

- All the value, plus all the versatility—it's a totally race-worthy mountain bike, with rear rack mounts if you use it for commuting too
- It's really fun to ride, and feels like a much more expensive mountain bike
- Internal cable routing extends the life of your cables and adds to the bike's sleek look
- Like every model in the Marlin family, it's backed by Trek's lifetime warranty
Fit for every rider
Marlin comes in seven frame sizes to suit riders of any height, and Smart Wheel Size ensures you’re on the fastest wheel that fits. The smallest sizes even come with short-reach brake levers and narrower handlebars that give smaller riders better comfort and control.
High tech, high value
Marlin looks and feels great. It’s packed with features usually found only on more expensive bikes, like a stylish frame with internal cable routing, which can help your cables last longer by protecting them from the elements.
Going for a long ride? Rack mounts make carrying accessories a breeze.
Rear kickstand mount
Chainstay mounts make it easy to install a rear kickstand that stays out of your way and supports bikes of all sizes. No more laying or leaning.
