Yes, refer to the thread I linked above.true guess I should just upgrade on it, any ideas on maybe some improvent in the gearing if I don't go that route?
Check the link I posted above. That bike seems to have a 7 speed cassette, so a 10 speed upgrade is not out of the question.7spd is not up-gradable...you will need to replace the rear hub.
8spd and Above can all be upgraded to 11spd, as they share the same Shimano Freehub design.
Also, Clutch Derailleurs are only an option with 10spd and above.
Big fan of Clutch Derailleurs
This is strange, I've got a Marlin 5 (2018 Model) when I upgraded my 7 speed drive train, the 7 speed was absolutely not compatible with 8/9/10 speed cassettes, I ended up having to replace the hub as well (I actually built new wheels entirely)Check the link I posted above.

Exactly!Usually they 7-speed cassettes are too narrow and have a spacer to take up the difference.
