The Marlin 4 is the gateway mountain bike that will take you from rail trails to singletrack. It's ideal for riders who want a mountain bike with knobby tyres that can double as a rugged commuter. Disc brakes, front suspension, Shimano 14-speed shifting and mounts for a rack and mudguards make this a great bike for trail riders and campus commuters alike.
You want an introductory mountain bike at an incredible price, but also want a commuter that's rugged enough to hop kerbs on the way to class.
A lightweight aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, trustworthy 14-speed Shimano shifting with a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, powerful mechanical disc brakes and a suspension fork that takes the edge off bumps and rough terrain.
The Marlin is made for any adventure. The rack and mudguard mounts make it a great choice for commuters who want to get a little rad on the way to class or the shops.
- The Marlin Gen 2 gives you all-around versatility with fast-rolling tyres and balanced, neutral geometry that keeps you comfortable and in control off-road. No wonder it?s our best-selling mountain bike ever.
- Rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
- Smaller frame sizes (XS and S) have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
- Marlin models in XS and S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
- Like every Trek, it's backed by a lifetime warranty
Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frame sizes have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don?t have the same issues with standover height.
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 shift cable and brake hose routing, which can help your cables last longer by protecting them from the elements.
Upgrade your pedals and love your bike more
Pedals are two of the five touchpoints that connect you with your bike, and even though this bike comes with a pair, upgrading to pedals that boost control and grip will greatly improve your ride. See the pedal guide and find the best pedals for your riding style. We recommend flat pedals for simple versatility.

Summit Cycles work will all major providers of the government backed Cycle to Work scheme. If you would like to buy a bike from us using the scheme your employer offers you will need to contact us to discuss the arrangements and eligibility of your purchase. Cycle to Work schemes are a great way to buy a bike and can offer a big saving on the price of your purchase but the ways that each individual scheme operate can vary so it is worth taking some time to find out exactly how your scheme works.
At Summit Cycles we aim to make our part of the process of buying by a Cycle to Work scheme as easy and as simple as possible. We can help you find the right bike and any accessories or extras you will need to make sure you are 100% ready to enjoy your purchased.
The best starting point is to speak with your human resources manager or the person responsible for administering the scheme your employer offers to find out who the provider is and the terms and conditions of the scheme they offer. You can often begin the application process by registering directly with the provider, often via their website. Many providers will ask us to provide a quote for the purchase so this is when you will need to speak to us to check eligibility and of course availability of your chosen bike but our staff can help you make the best choice, guiding you to the right bike and accessories and then raising the information you will need.
Processing can take a little time but often we can secure the bike you want with the payment of a deposit, refundable when the scheme provider issues confirmation certificate or payment.
We do not currently offer to ship bikes purchased via our website, these must be collected from our store. If you see a bike that you are interested in and are unable to collect from us then it may still be worth getting in touch with us to explore further options.
Bikes purchased via our website will be made ready for store collection. This can take a few days depending on where the bike is located. Some bikes will need to ship from a supplier but if this is the case the expected lead time for delivery to us will be displayed on our site. We also hold stock at an off-site storage location and transfer can take a day or so. When we have the bike it will be scheduled for assembly and safety checks with one of our CYTEC mechanics. Once this is complete we will send a final confirmation that the bike is ready for collection and you can then visit the store to pick it up.
With bike purchases, a member of our team will usually contact you prior to processing to check sizing and other details. For bikes in our stock the process from order to collection usually takes 3 or 4 working days but can be quicker sometimes or longer if the bike is shipping to us from a supplier. A member of our team will be able to give you more information if required.
Once your new bike is ready for collection we will get in touch with you to arrange a convenient time for pickup. Collection is from our store at 65 North Parade, Aberystwyth. When you come to collect we may ask for you to present proof of identity for security reasons. A member of staff will check size and personal adjustments like saddle height and can provide advice on care and service arrangements so please allow a little time for the handover process.
