Up for swap is my Trek Fuel ex9.8. I'd like to deal for something more along the lines of a Trek Slash, maybe a Specialized Status. Something with a bit more bounce for bigger days out. The Fuel is absolutely amazing at what it does, but at times i'm looking to hit things that i'd feel a bit more confident on with a little more travel. My son races DH and some of the things he exepcts me to ride, i just need a bit'more' really.I've taken the Fuel to Forest of Dean, Bike Park Wales, Rogate etc.. It's a proper fabulous thing to ride.
Something along the lines of 170/180mm and even a mullet or 650b both ends wouldn't be a terrible idea for me. As you can see, it's dripping in carbon, from the bars to the wheels. It has a Dyedbro protection kit installed which keeps it nice..
But overall condition is absolutely fantastic. I've put a 150mm air shaft in it but will also supply the 140mm standard shaft.
It's running an Assegai in 3cR and a DHR in the same compound. The Trek Fuel EX 9.8 carbon full suspension mountain bike can fly through singletrack, throw down with the rowdy trail crew and crush miles during marathon races. Trek's light and stiff full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame is sprung with a 140 mm FOX Performance 36 Float fork and has 130 mm of rear travel from a FOX Performance Float shock featuring Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft for the ultimate in trail response. The 1x12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with a wide spread of gears, powerful Shimano SLX 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes and a Bontrager Line dropper seat post mean you are ready for any change in terrain.
And Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for quick engagement are the icing on the cake. Fuel EX 9.8 is the definitive mountain bike, and a great choice if you're going to invest in a single bike for all kinds of terrain.
