Marlin 5 | Trek BikesWhen any rider is looking for an entry-level bike, they are looking for versatility and durability and that is exactly what the Marlin 5 delivers. Whether you are hitting the trails or commuting on the bike trail, the Marlin has you covered. Much of this versatility stems from the Alpha Series frame and the G2 geometry. The G2 geometry is specifically designed to offer precise handling at low speed without affecting high-speed stability. This combined with the Alpha Series Aluminum frame means that the bike feels fantastic and stands the test of time without the massive weight penalty that is often associated with other bikes at this price point. A massive upgrade for the model is the inclusion of hydraulic disc brakes rather than mechanical ones.

A lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminum frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, 21 speeds, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes, and a suspension fork with mm of travel—that's the same amount favored by most cross country racers. But it's also versatile, and Marlin 5 is a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize and haul a load. From transporting on a rack to fixing a flat, sometimes those wheels need to come off your bike. Keep watching to learn how to safely remove and install wheels that use a quick release system. A clean bike is a happy bike, but washing your ride is a bit more complicated than a quick spray with the hose or a joyride through your local car wash. Setting your bike's tire pressure correctly will give you a more comfortable ride with better grip and handling. Even better, it can help prevent flats.
