Comments:

I ride all the trails in the area and harder ones in more exotic locations like Moab and Whistler, and here is final a bike that can go darn nearly as fast as the latest race bikes (faster than my several year old XC race bike actually could) and yet can easily tackle much harder terrain than any of those could go near. I love it. It needs the tubeless conversion done, but not much else!

Comments:

Couldn't justify 9.9 Fuel Project One, but didn't loose anything but some gold on the fork and shock, the paint custom and used the saving to get a set of carbon wheel and lighter tires and factory upgrade to Sram X01. Thanks Trek for the 9.8 Fuel I have my dream bike.
