Want a bike that goes anywhere and does anything? Of course you do, who doesn't? Enter: Trek's Stache 9. The 29er+ (mid fat) hardtail for the modern age. Fat, 3-inch tires wrapped around 50mm-wide, 29-inch wheels float over terra-not-so-firma like snow, sand, mud, etc. But, it's still a Stache, so of course it's quick, agile and flickable, so dry hardpack goes by faster than jean styles. Trek loaded the Platinum aluminum frame with all the marks of a fully legit trail bike, like G2 trail geometry, E2 tapered head tube, PF92 bottom bracket, dropper-post routing and a Boost 148 rear end. That 148mm-wide rear axle is enhanced by super short chainstays that let you rip through berms, dominate twisty trails, and out-accelerate your crew. SRAM's X1 cranks power a wide-ranging 1 x 11-speed drivetrain. And if you like variety, the Stache's Stanglehold dropouts are compatible with 27.5+ and standard 29-inch wheels too!

It's a fun 29er! It manuals, bunny-hops, and jumps like a 26in dirt jump bike. A very capable hardtail, but I wouldn't go selling your full suspension trail bike.
