Just so I understand correctly.

Everything is new including the 105 disc brake calipers and brake pads? Or using existing brake calipers and worn brake pads?

Was the Trek Marlin 5 a women's specific bike?

If so, I'll bet it's a combination of a few things. All of which can be changed for relatively cheap. The Trek has narrower bars but with longer...

What about a 2022 Marlin 4? Looks like they are 3x7. Doesn't seem like much is different except 80 mm instead of 100 mm fork.

Interesting rig. I don't know if it's the photo but that looks like a very slack headtube angle. Set up as single speed?

Also, that ramp looks sketchy AF.

BTW, a nice addition/upgrade from the Roll.
