    The Marlin has more cockpit space based on bike geometry. Make sure you get a bike that fits you. Or don't buy. Both are bike path bikes because of the spring forks. No rebound damping means a pogo stick when you ride over multiple rocks and roots at speed on a downhill segment. That's when you'll find the brakes aren't strong enough.

    Yep, neither are really mountain bikes... Much less 'all mountain' bikes.
