Anywhere I can find the Trek Marlin 7 cheaper than it's retail price of $849?

    Bupa Health members get 15% off Trek. If you know someone you can use theirs. Alternatively wait till August when the manufacturers start clearing the years stock - at that point 10%-20% discounts are given upfront.

      @TheBilly: Is it possible to stack the manufacturer clearance discount with the Bupa discount?

        I don't think so, you will have to ask. I believe the Bupa discount was 15% off full retail price.

    @ChitChatTing What's the difference between a Marlin 5 & 7? Is the 5 suitable for daily commuting, but the 7 is not, due to having to lean too far forward?

      I'm not entirely sure about the comparison to the Marlin 5, but I ended up copping the 7 and i'm loving it. The only downside for me is that the seat does get unconfortable on longer (2+ hour) rides. It also doesn't come with a kickstand but a quality one can be purchased for around $25.

        Cheers for the info. I'm not able to see any physical size differences with the 5 from the Trek website. Just some upgraded components.

        Good to hear your positive review of it though. That's helpful.

        I've found a cheap 7. Hate the slate/grey colour, love the black colour of the 5, but apparently the shocks are nowhere near as good as the 7.

        Perhaps I can find some vinyl wrap or something to make the 7 into a black/white colour scheme like the 5.
