    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Fuel EX 5

    Trek Fuel EX 5 Review If you like a lively bike, you should take the Trek Fully into consideration. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with Trek. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Trek Fuel EX 5. The high-quality frame meets all current standards and thus serves as a perfect foundation for a solid, complete bike. There are All Mountain in the price under 3000 Euro that have more potential downhill. When viewing the 15,7 kg, its apparent: there are lighter All Mountains in this price range. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek puts a lot of trust in its products.
