2016 Trek Fuel EX 7 29

Take the crisp handling, active suspension, and playful nature of Trek's Fuel EX and bump it up with 29-inch wheels. You just became unstoppable. The Fuel EX 7 29 uses an Alpha aluminum frame and all the magic that puts Trek at the head of the pack. Things like the E2 head tube, and Full Floater and ABP rear suspension technologies make for a ride that obliterates the line between a hard-charging trail bike and nimble XC bike. The front RockShox fork and rear Fox suspension is responsive, plush, and handles hits way above its 120mm. It all rolls on Bontrager tubeless-ready, thru-axle Duster Elite hoops wrapped in proper 2.3-inch knobbies. Plus, with Bontrager Race Lite components, Shimano 2x10 gearing, and Shimano Deore discs, all your trails just got a lot easier. Like we mentioned, unstoppable.

Comments:

I had a cheaper Trek hard tail 29er and upgraded to this for the full suspension. I was worried that the susp + large wheels would kill the handling. But nope! This bike handles every bit as good as my hardtail. I can go up tight twisty switchbacks even with my 21.5" model. The suspension is amazing. "Trail" mode is what I use the most but I put it in "climb" during gravel grinds and "descend" on any technical downhill. The bike climbs extremely well in "Trail" and "climb" mode with no noticeable loss in power from the suspension compressing. Even when climbing in "descend" mode the bike doesn't bob too much and you'll notice a huge increase in traction. i am not an intense downhiller but my speed and confidence raised dramatically with this bike. I notice that I can "pump" the trail and gain more speed by compressing the suspension in the corners and dips. This bike is extremely capable on all types of trails - singleltrack, downhill, slalom, gravel grinding. Will it downhill like a true downhill bike? No. Will it be as fast as a Superfly on singletrack? Probably not. But it will switch between the two better than any other bike.

    Comments:

    I have owned around 11 +/- Trek Cycles over the past few years and this one is the ride I have been looking for, it's a great combo. Trail to Road it can move out on the road as well as it can on the trail. I recommend this cycle with 5+ Stars out of 5+. Great buy on my 2014 as well. I am very happy to say the least.

      Comments:

      I am a mountain bike fan. I enjoy riding on the mountain trails. This bike is great, fast, reliable, moves over every obstacle on the trail. One downsize is the tires that lack grip on wet conditions like muddy terrain and wet roots. When cornering over wet roots sometimes the tires slip bad loosing control.
