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.

    Comments:

    I search for smooth and flowing trails. This bike was built for those trails. Coming from a 26" hardtail, this bike is everything I wanted. Once you get used to the overall platform, this bike goes. Fast, comfortable, responsive, and efficient. I am still getting used to it in slow speed technical sections, but I am sure I will get it down with time. Wish it had a 2x10, but that is an easy fix. Great overall bike, full of good technology and smart spec.

      Bought this after looking at load of other full suspension 29ers, and absolutely love it, so glad I picked it over the others, but it is fair to say the bikes ability far exceeds mine!! The bike shop I used was excellent, great advice when buying.

            I don't really know much about tech specs, but I can offer this advice: aside from a sexy bikini clad brazillian, this bike is the best thing you will ever put between your legs. Rides like a dream. Great for Smashing out a single track or rocky track. I intend to take back all my Strava records with this bad boy.

            Love this bike. Just did the Scott 24 hour and the bike was flawless(unlike the rider). The rear lockout is great for the climb and the descent is surprisingly plush on even some proper Downhill parts. Great value.

            Comments:

            this is my 2nd 29er but 1st full suspension. really like this bike since I dialed in the sag. rock gardens are a blast -- difficult trails I use to avoid are butter. the graphics are kind of silly but that's superfluous. highly recommended.

            This is my first experience with a 29er. I'm 6'5" and I love the bike. The transition from 26 to 29 has been seamless. The bike handles great and is very responsive. I ride all kinds of different terrain and the bike has done everything I've asked it to do.

            Best Uses

              Comments:

              I had a 2011 Fuel EX 8. I saw the new 29er and knew it was what I wanted. I ordered mine the day it was release to the dealers. The bike carries speed very well. Climbs great. The handling feels better than the other 29ers I have demoed (rumble fish, stumpjumper etc) It does not have the long wheel base feeling I get with other 29ers. My only complaint it should have came with 2X10 gearing. I have since put on an SLX crank and front derailer. Brakes are strong and tires have been great. Overall a very strong package. And the color looks much better than the pics on the Trek website show. The color is more of a metal flake silver.

                    Comments:

                    I wanted a bike that would do trail centre stuff and also long cross country rides across the moor. Some trail bikes seemed too heavy and the 100mm cross country bikes didnt offer the plush travel i was after. As soon as i swung a leg over the EX8 29er it felt like it wanted to rip! In climb mode it almost feels like a compliant carbon hard tail and in decend mode it is ready to rock. The component package is strong and the frame features make this one high tech beast for the price. The more i ride it the better it feels.
