My Trek Stache Bike Review
I was fortunate to be able to ride the all new Trek Stache 9 at Trek World and a Trek Factory Demo in Charlotte, North Carolina. Here is my review of the new Trek Stache.
When Trek Bikes introduced the new Trek Stache with 20+ wheels towards the end of the 2015 summer, we (the guys in the bike shop) weren’t sure where the bike fit in the scheme of things. We didn’t know if it was a ‘new’ version of the Fat Bike or what. We weren’t sure how we were supposed to sell the bike to customers.
When riding the Trek Stache 9 at Trek World, I quickly realized that the 29+ isn’t just a gimmick. The bike is fast and can be ridden hard and aggressively. When I returned from Trek World, I told all of our salespeople that they could confidently tell their customers that it was a fast bike.
I am glad I was able to put some more time in riding the Trek Stache on a local trail that I know well. It gave me a better idea of how the bike rides and handles.
Here is my review in a nutshell:
My overall impression of the Stache is this: If I could only have one bike and I never raced, I would get a Trek Stache 7 or 9. The bike is a blast to ride and can be ridden like a true mountain bike. I feel like I could race the bike to a mid-pack finish in any race that didn’t have any sustained climbing. It’s that good!
