Hey guys!

Got a Marlin about a week ago and I like the ride, but the brakes squeal EMBARRASSINGLY loud. I thought if I just did some small road rides to break them in it might stop, but it seems to get worse actually. I am kind of stuck in the "Darn, should have gone with the Mamba" feeling, but I am not sure if my LBS will let me swap. Any suggestions on what to do if I can't do the swap? Is it worth the trouble to try and swap or is a squeaky brake issue an easy fix? Thanks for the help!

When I test rode the marlin the brakes were loud. I didn't think much of it, but decided either way I wasn't getting the bike.

I'm sure you can find a different brake pad for it. A higher quality pad would probably help.
