    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Top Fuel 5

    Trek Top Fuel 5 Review With 120 mm of travel on the fork, the Top Fuel 5 is one of the downcountry bikes which tries to balance fun on the descent and sporty pace on the ascent. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. The seating position is sporty. If you look at the frame as the heart of a bike, then Trek has done everything right. The frame leaves a very presentable impression. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. When viewing the 15,5 kg, its apparent: there are lighter Downcountry-Bikes in this price range. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong.
