This weeks Showcase Saturday bike is a beautiful Trek Fuel EX in 18.5″ with special Project One paint.
A light and stiff OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Elite 30 wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for instant engagement, a 2×11 Shimano XT drivetrain, SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes, a 130 mm FOX Performance 34 Float fork and a FOX Performance Float shock featuring Trek’s exclusive RE:aktiv damper. Plus, a Bontrager Drop Line dropper post and a 35 mm Bontrager Line Pro OCLV Carbon handlebar.
The final word
The 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. A carbon frame, quality parts build and advanced suspension make it an outstanding all-around mountain bike for every kind of trail.
This bike is on at a bargain price, its ex-demo, but has had very little use. Cranks and mainframe unmarked. All bearings and pivots are perfect.
