Today on cycling with solely, we are comparing Marlon six and the specialized rockhopper. There is we have discussed the comparison of these two bikes.
For those who don’t know tracks Marlin series has been the go-to entry-level mountain bike for many getting into the sport but quite recently, specialized has gotten into the game with their raw copper series.
Although the raw copper has been around since the eighties specialized it’s brought it back to compete directly with the track Marlon series.
First, we have the track Marlin six. Dropouts and internal cable routing. Create a clean look Bontrager XR. Two comp tires are mounted on bond Traeger connection rims with quick release formula hubs, a son to her X, C T 30, coil four with a hundred.
Two 80 millimeters of travel is mounted in the front. There is a 16 speed Shimano drive train with an 11 to 34 cassette and a two-by-the-square taper. Crankset tech DRO, hydraulic disc brakes are a step above most mechanical dis brakes found on similar bikes. The medium Marlon XYX has a 69.3 degree ahead to mingle.
Next, we have the specialized rock copper. The specialized rock copper is over a hundred dollars cheaper than the track
Marlin’s six specialized premium double-butted alloy frame has internal cable routing and quick Elise dropouts.
Sr sun to R X, C E 29. Coil fork with 90 to a hundred millimeters of travel dampens the trail a little bit specialized ground control tires are mounted on specialized alloy, rims and forming a hub.
The 16-speed drive train is a mix of parts from different brands, starting with a Shimano rear derailer.
As Shimano Alto’s front derailer, none 11 to 34 tooth sunrise cassettes with a specialized stout to buy square tape for the crankset.
There is we have discussed details of trek vs specialized bicycle.
Finally, radius CX seven mechanical disc brakes are better than V brakes, but judging by a few reviews, they don’t sound very powerful. The medium rock copper 29 has a 68.5-degree head tubing angle.
If 42.5-centimeter reach and a bottom bracket, 31 centimeters from the ground, these bikes on very similar from their purpose right down to their components.
If I was going to ride one of these bikes as it is right now, I think the track Marlin six is a better bike to do so, even though it is over a hundred dollars, more expensive than the specialized rock copper 29, what you get extra is worth it, in my opinion.
Attracts hydraulic brakes and a full Shimano drive train, pushes it over the rockhopper just enough.
However, the specialized rock copper has better trail geometry and price compared to the track. Marlin six, if you want to upgrade the bike over time, get the specialized rock copper 29.
If you want to ride the bike right now, get the Trek Marlin six.
