Marlin Frame Set is a lightweight aluminium frame ready to be built into the perfect easygoing trail bike. It's loaded with all-new geometry that's more capable than ever, ideal for gaining confidence and speed on the singletrack.

A lightweight aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and keep your bike looking sleek, plus modern geometry that ups confident handling in varying trail terrain. Plus, a Thru-Skew rear axle that is safer, simpler and stronger than standard quick-release.

Marlin 2023 Frameset is made for taking on the trail. The modern geometry is ultra-capable, and added features ? like extra tyre clearance and mounts for racks and kickstands ? up the versatility.

- It's a ride-anywhere mountain bike that's at home on the trail or rolling laps on the greenway

- You'll get a lightweight aluminium frame that's robust enough for the ride without weighing you down

- Rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to add whatever accessories you want, so it can play double-duty as a commuter ride and trail bike

- Marlin models in XXS and XS frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount

- Internal routing makes it easy to add a dropper post that lets you lower you saddle on the fly for more confident descending and new Thu-Skew is stronger and simpler than quick-release

Mountain Bike Buying Guide

Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.

XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.

Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.

Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.


Men’s and women’s mountain bikes

Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.
