    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Fuel EX 9.7

    Expirience with the Fuel EX 9.7 2022 With 140 mm travel on the fork, the Fuel EX 9.7 is much more downhill-oriented than its little brother without the EX model suffix. With 13,7 kg weight for the complete bike, the Trek Fuel EX 9.7 joins the lighter bikes that you can buy for under under 6000 Euro. Most bikes in its class are heavier. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. For all of those who love a good incline, the moderate seating position of the on demanding trails should be considered pleasant. With the frame, Trek supplies a very high quality Fully-chassis. For 4599 Euro , competitors usually deliver geometries with less fun potential. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek is behind its products.
