  1. Ultra-stiff design

    Convertible 142x12 rear wheel and E2 head tube equal incredible stiffness for the point-and-shoot control technical trails demand.

    After a dozen years of dialing 29er geometry, we know exactly what to do to maximize speed, handling, and confidence. And we’ve done it with Stache.

2013 Trek Stache Video Reviews

This whip's name is Stache, and it's here to show you your favorite old trail in a whole new light. 29" wheels? It's got 'em. Wide tires? For sure. Chainguide tabs? Yup. Internal routing for one of those dropper posts? Totally. Super short chainstays? The berms are already quivering. All it needs is a rider. That's where you come in.

Trek's Assistant MTB Brand Manager, Ross Rushin, attended Bike Week in Sun Valley and brought along a few of Trek's brand new 2013 trail bikes. In this clip Ross shows off Trek's new Stache 29er hardtail.

Quick Build of the 'Stache' By Formby Cycles:

2013 Trek Stache Features

the Trek Stache uses a 2x10 drivetrain.


A 10-speed cassette and 2-ring crankset deliver a full range of useable gears, with less weight and easier, smoother shifting.


Stiffer thru axle, easy wheel changes

Our robust and confidence-inspiring rear thru axle is about 35% stiffer than an open dropout design. And now, a thru axle wheel change is actually quick and easy, thanks to a tabbed guide in the frame's dropout.

Alpha Platinum Aluminum

Our premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Alpha Platinum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using Trek's smooth-weld finishing process.

Direct-mount derailleur

A traditional front derailleur attaches to the frame with a band clamp. Our direct-mount front derailleur attaches directly to the frame using a solid, flat interface. This fastening method ensures crisper, more accurate front shifting.

Closed convert dropouts

Hardtails offer the robust performance of a closed thru-axle system with the convenience of a system that can accept 142x12 or 135x5 rear spacing.

E2 tapered head tube

Point-and-shoot control

E2 is the evolution of the traditional 1-1/8" headset to a tapered head tube, fork, and headset system. E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to a 1-1/8" upper headset to provide more material where it matters most, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame with point-and-shoot control.

ISCG mounts

International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment.

Press-fit bottom bracket

Press-fit BB is a bottom bracket shell that allows the bearings to press into the frame rather than threading in as on standard bottom brackets. This provides a wider stance for the frame’s tubing juncture, resulting in a stronger frame. This wider stance also mimics the benefits of an OCLV Carbon-only technology, BB95.
