Trek Fuel

The bike of the month is the hard-hitting Trek Fuel. Employing early (120) Trek OCLV Carbon technology, this is still one of the best riding hardtails out there. It’s dressed to kill in a set of Hope disc brakes, Rockshox Reba Air fork with lockout, a full Shimano XTR drivetrain, and new Continental 2.1 tires to take you there with no slips. This 17.5″ medium frame fits a rider approx. 5’5″-5’9″ with a $500 budget.
