The Trek Farley has been redesigned to be even more versatile for 2016. The Trek Farley is a fat bike that comes in amazing colors and many different build specs. To further the innovation for 2016 Trek has designed the Farley to accommodate even wider tires (up to 5 inch). The ability to run either 26”x 5” (fat) or 27.5”x4” (mid fat) wheels the Trek Farley will perform under just about any condition you can find. The Farley is tubeless compatible reducing the likely hood of getting a flat out on the trail and running these tires at a lower PSI will give you even more traction.

The Trek Stache is a new generation of mountain bike with wider clearance for wider tires, think fat bikes not so fat quicker little brother. The 3” tires and shorter chainstays provide nimble handling and excellent traction no matter what Colorado terrain you face.
Wider hub spacing on both the front (110mm) and rear (148mm) dropouts allows for wider tires. Wider hubs make for less flexy wheels that ride true and stiff. The 3” tubeless ready tires give plenty of suspension for a full suspension feel on a hardtail bike. We also noticed the internal routing of the dropper post and felt this was a much needed improvement.
With the ability to run 29”+ wheels, 27.5”+ wheels or standard 29” XC wheels coupled 110mm of travel in the front suspension The Stache is an all-around awesome bike for any adventure.
We took it for a test ride and we were surprised by the narrow turning radius and handling at low speeds. No doubt this is due to the shorter chain stays and wider than normal MTB tires. The 1X11 drivetrain is simple to use and still provides a wide range of gear choices. Nicely equipped with a dropper seat post furthering the versatility of this one of a kind bike. The Manitou Magnum 34 Pro front suspension operates smooth alongside the Chupacabra 3” tires from Bontrager. The Trek Stache will be the perfect bike for all the Front Range has to offer.
Speicalized Stumpy has been a go to trail bike for a long time. Now the well-known Stumpjumper has been modified and transformed in the Stumpjumper 6Fattie. 27.5”x3” Tires provide the ultimate in speed meets traction. The Stumpjumper 6Fattie is tubeless ready, full suspension and full on awesome. The Stumpjumper’s evolution doesn’t stop there either, with shorter chainstays and a slacker head tube, ripping trails has never been better.
