Take 29-inch wheels, 110mm of rear travel, Trek technology and Gary Fisher geometry and what do you get? You get the Superfly 100 AL Elite and a shelf full of trophies. Trek's tapered head tube with a custom 100mm-travel Fox fork, plus the super-efficient Full Floater suspension and the ABP black magic that somehow makes braking faster and better controlled all collude to deliver precise steering, telepathic handling and authoritative control at the ready. With all this light weight and speed, you need solid parts, too. And the Elite delivers with Shimano SLX shifting with an XT rear derailleur, tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels with fat rubber and fully legit Bontrager Race Lite components. Down for racing, capable out on real trails, the Superfly is truly among the elite.

I use this bike for XC racing and I can put it where I want it on any single track, downhill or technical feature. The components are great, shifting is smooth and brakes are great, both never need any adjusting. Climbs great with no lag. Raced on 8 races and only had to straighten front rim once from a rocky race beat down. Awesome bike, been riding for 22 years and hands down, best bike I ever owned. Absolutely love it!
29lbs, size large out of the box. Shreds the singletrack, awesome bike, tight, fast, fun. Tubeless ready tires came w/tubes, gonna change low-profile tires. Plan to change out handle bars and seatpost to carbon fiber chi-chi's. Buy it, u won't be dissapointed.
Road this bike as a test bike tackled all trails including pro-expert never stop short, easily conquered all trails and drops in the fastest time ever with no problems. Not able to do with my Jamis 26".
Absolutely amazing. -at a loss of words. JUST got the new 2012 Superfly Elite Full Suspension Al. The bike itself is sexy looking. It just turns eyes. When picking it up all I heard were "oooh/wow" from the shop employees. The bike itself is impressively light. I was going to purchase the hardtail edition, which is the one that I had initially ordered, but they had both options when I arrived. Couldn't believe that the full suspension was practically the same weight, maybe ~3 pounds more. The bike rides like a dream ..literally. Oooooooooooo
