Product Details

2014 Trek Fuel EX 8 29

With the big-wheel mile crushing of an XC bike and the confidence of an agressive trail bike, Trek's Fuel EX 8 29 tackles whatever you have in mind. This 29er uses an aluminum frame with G2 geometry to deliver 120mm of front/rear travel, controlled by Fox's CTD technology and enhanced with Trek's DRCV tech out back. Stiffness means precise handling, so you're equipped with an E2 head tube and a 142x12 rear through axle, as well as Trek's ABP and Full Floater suspension to keep your rear suspension active and controlled even when you're braking. Dressing the frame is a tubeless-ready wheelset, sure-stopping SLX discs and an SLX/XT drivetrain for crisp, quick shifts every time. Welcome to the new platinum standard.

      I got this bike August 1st on sale for 2,200. It is simply amazing.The suspension is so smooth when you hit the trails. Or you can lock the suspension for riding on the street. With its 30 gears you won't have any problem finding one that fits whatsoever your riding over. I'm surprised how easy it was to get to a top speed of 29mph on a flat street ( no hills).Fun versatile and a great deal.

        Comments:

        I ride road and rail trails with my wife typically, but I also work in Colorado and keep my Fuel there. I ride mountain trails from lift served terrain like Vail or Breckenridge or local locations like Palmer Park. This bike is awesome. Handles most everything, including dirt trails, rocks, jumps, drops (3 ft or so), uphills, downhills, etc. The suspension is great. downhill you can setup the suspension to take the hits, yet uphill stiffens out for efficient climbing. The 29" wheels make for a smoother ride and easier to overcome obstacles. When in very tight rocks or builders on steep slopes can be a little harder to turn than a 26" wheel, but wouldn't switch due to the advantages of 29" wheels in other situations. LOVE THIS BIKE. Cloud use a drop post but that's an add-on.
