Marlin Frameset is a lightweight, versatile mountain bike frame great for building up as a fast cross county race bike or a rugged flatbar commuter. It's made of strong Alpha Silver Aluminum and is quick and capable on pavement, gravel, and singletrack alike.
It's right for you if...
You’re looking for a versatile, wallet-friendly frameset you can build up exactly the way you want. You'll fly through singletrack, tackle rugged, all-terrain commutes, or both, depending on how you spec it.
The tech you get
A lightweight and sturdy Alpha Silver Aluminum frame, internal routing to protect cables from the elements, mounts for a rear rack and kickstand, and a headset. Designed with Smart Wheel Sizing: smaller frames fit 27.5-inch wheels and larger frames fit 29-inch wheels.
The final word
It's a light and capable frameset at a great value. You can spec it as a solid cross country mountain bike without breaking the bank, or build up a rugged commuter that easily handles potholes and rough roads.
