There are a lot of mountain bikes to choose from. I’ve been mountain biking since I was a child and have had a great deal of experience with mountain bikes ranging from Specialized, Cannondale, DiamondBack, Giant, Trek, etc. This Trek Caliber 6 is an excellent mountain bike for fitness on the trail or on the road. It features quality and reliable components but doesn’t have the sticker-shock price tag. If you’re looking for a rock-solid mountain bike that won’t break the bank, this is a great bike to consider.

Slight correction: at around the 2:00 mark I mention that for 2017 the Marlin 7 now comes in the same orange color as my 2016 Marlin 6 – however it’s actually called “roarange” instead of “firebrand” and the one I saw in the bike shop looked more reddish orange than pure orange to me – I thought maybe it was just the lighting in the store but I saw a pic on some German website (USA website still has 2016 models) and they call it “roarange” and it’s definitely a bit different IMO than the “firebrand”. Just wanted to clarify this in case anyone out there is thinking of ordering a 2017 Marlin 7.
