Least expensive bike in the industry with hydraulic brakes by a long shot and our best selling bike!
It's a real mountain bike that's also perfectly suited to daily commutes, rides around campus, or just getting from A to B on any surface.
Smaller frame sizes (13.5" and 15.5") have short-reach brake levers to make it easier for those riders with smaller hands to brake confidently.
She has separate brake and shift levers (a feature that's common on more expensive mountain bikes) so you can fine tune the position for comfort!
Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter. Yes that's right you can mountain bike and COMMUTE!
Like every model in the Marlin family, it's backed by Trek's lifetime warranty!
