In October I purchased a green '12 Marlin. With winter approaching fast, I have not had the opportunity to do much riding. With the time I have spent on the bike, I have learned a few things...
The Marlin has all shite components. Especially the Suntour fork. I got the bike for 600 bucks. Soooo..... I contacted the dealer and they have 1 2012 Rig left, just not my size. I put it on layaway. At $999, I figure it is a great deal, since the original cost was $1500. I am going to have them put all of the Rig components on the Marlin frame, and then sell the bike I have leftover. My Marlin is a 27.5, and the Rig is a 19.5.
I have read that the Rig rear dropout adjustments continually slip, causing some nasty crashes. Is it the same problem on the Marlin frame ? I checked the nuts on the bolts, and they loosen by hand. Can this be fixed with lock nuts ? Someone else on here said that if I have my LBS contact Trek, they will send out a newer design of adjusters. Is this true ?
Is there anything else I should know about, other than the fact that I should not have purchased a Trek ?
