    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.

    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.

      Cons

      • Fork

      Best Uses

      • Mountain Biking
      • Commuting

      Comments:

      I purchased this bike about two months ago from the local trek store. I have used it to commute around town and ride some of the trails New Mexico has to offer. I've done some easy trails as well as some moderate downhill and single track. The components are entry level but have done very well in both situations. The one thing I changed right away was the front fork. I'm 6'0 and 230 lbs. The suntour fork felt bouncy on the trails and would bottom out easily under my weight. All in all for a "sports" mountain bike I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I would definately recommend to a friend.
