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. When it comes down to handling, Trek does not compromise. With its balanced handling style, the Trek Fully is ready for the majority of singletrails. Well trained athletes are likely to really enjoy the sporty seating position. If you disregard important factors such as company image or optics of a bike, you will come to the conclusion that other bikes in this price range are more convincing. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 15,5 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 2599 Euro, Trek provides more than the competitors in the same price range. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
