Description

Every year bikes get lighter, skinnier, and more efficient, giving you less, and less, and less. Specialized took a different approach with the Fuse Expert 6Fattie and gave you more. More traction, more flotation, and more laid-back fun. Rolling on 650B x 3.0-inch tires, the Fuse Expert delivers unprecedented traction and stability so you can shred the loosest, most off-camber and rock-strewn trails you can find. The solid M4 aluminum frame features Specialized's exclusive Diamond Stay technology to accommodate 6Fattie wheels and tires while maintaining the short chainstays that keep a bike playful and fun. The spec is dialed with a RockShox Reba RL fork, Specialized Stout wheels, and a 1 x 11-speed SRAM GX drivetrain with a wide-ranging cassette. There's even a dropper post for maximum control when things get rowdy. Get on a Fuse and find out what you've been missing.

This model is spec'd very well, IMO worth every penny. Global's customer service is topnotch, I ride my bikes hard and the entire team at Ray & 101 has been amazing with maintenance & warranty issues. If you happen to stop by that store say hi to Garret & Eric (best mechanics I've met so far). That whole team is awesome, when you purchase a bike from Global you'll gain a new family.

Not my wifes bike anymore!

Light And Grounded
Cons:

I got this for my wife and as a second bike me. When my full suspension 29r was in the shop, I mounted the Fuse. What a great bike. Light weight, great climber, soft ride with the 27.5 plus tires. I now have a 29r for sale and will be getting another Fuse for my wife. over 30 years on the trail this could be my favorite bike.
