    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Fuel EX 8 GX AXS T-Type Gen 6

    Trek Fuel EX 8 GX AXS T-Type Gen 6 Review For 2023, Trek has completely relaunched the Fuel EX 8 and has not spilled the beans, but rather made do. With a flat 64,5 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Trek suite the taste of most bikers. When viewing the 15,7 kg, its apparent: there are lighter All Mountains in this price range. Trek is installing only absolutely high-quality shifting components. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
