  • Trek Stache 29er...

Description

People tend to think to 29er hardtails as race bikes. You can totally race Trek's Stache 6, with its lightweight aluminum frame and quick-handling G2 geometry, but where it really shines is when the trail turns nasty. Trek loaded the Stache with trail bike goodies like an E2 head tube, ISCG05 mounts, dropper-post routing and a 142x12mm rear end. That rear end is enhanced by short chainstays that dissect twists and turns like a boss. Add a 120mm RockShox fork to smooth things out, Race Face cranks powering 2x10 gearing and legit Bontrager components and you have a simple, fast, trail bike 29er that doesn't back down from a challenge.

Features & Info

Alpha Platinum Aluminum

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

E2 Head Tube

Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.

G2 Geometry

Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.

This bike is fast on the downhill solid on the climbs. The front fork has plenty of travel and smooth in the rocks. The brakes will stop on a dime.
