2023 TREK Marlin 8 Gen 3 – Crimson

R23,000.00 INC VAT

The Marlin 8 is a confidence-boosting trail bike with updated geometry that gives you more control on singletrack without skipping on features for everyday use, like mounts for racks and a kick stand. It’s built for years of progress thanks to 12-speed SRAM shifting and an upgraded RockShox air-spring suspension fork.

Disclaimer (Warranties):
I understand that my bicycle needs to be built by an authorised dealer for the warranty to be valid and that it is best to practise for me to fit and inspect the bicycle in-store.
Disclaimer (Size):
I understand that some bicycles are ordered according to size. The size I have provided is my confirmed and correct size, and I will not request a refund should the size I have ordered be incorrect. It will be my responsibility to sell the bike before I order a new size.
Disclaimer (Online Orders):
I understand it is best practice to visit my local BSC to fit, order, collect and set-up my bicycle rather than opt for shipping.

BUILD. BOX. SHIP.

TREK has this rule: if it’s not built by an official TREK retailer, there is no warranty for you.

We’ve got your back! Just pick out your favourite TREK bike on our website, and we’ll shoot you an invoice. Once you settle the bill, we’ll work on building your bike in-store for FREE, pack it up, and ship it straight to your doorstep. Easy peasy, right? No fuss, just an awesome new bike day!
