    Trek 29+ coming

    Saw a picture today. I am not sure if I can post it. Swamped at work, so I will give quick impressions.
    Frame looks aluminum. Driveside chainstay is elevated. Looks like it has sliders
    Rims are new to me. Never seen them before. I can't tell much detail from the pic.
    Squishy Manitou fork
    Geo looks short and slack.

    The rims in question are Mulefut 50s

    The bike looks sick, it should be at Sea Otter

    Trek just won't let any fad go without testing the waters, will they? Looks cool, I'm intrigued.

    I thought they might be the Mulefet 50s, but I couldn't tell for sure.
    The bikes I saw were a greenish rigid one with a carbon fork, and a purple hardtail with standard seat post. It looks like they will have several options.

    Interesting indeed. Elevated chainstay means belt drive compatible without splitting the frame. Also looks like some sort of sliding dropout for SS duty.

    They're covering all the bases!

    The elevated CS is to accommodate the shorter CS length. Looks like adjustable dropouts is integrated with the derailleur hanger.
    I wonder how much travel and the HT angle.
    Great looking bike!

    I've heard that it will be a new model in the "Stache" lineup.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......

    A bunch of these already shipped. The entry level one at least with the rigid fork. They use the Stranglehold rear drop out which works very well on the Superfly SS. I'm ordering one tomorrow.

    The pic I have shows the fork from an angle that it has plenty of clearance for mud.

    LBS just posted he will have some tomorrow. Hopefully weather holds out for our weekly ride/cookout so we can test ride one.

    This just looks like a fun bike. I may have to part with my Superfly SS.

    This looks pretty cool. Interesting that on the current Stache, the seat tube is sculpted for tire clearance, but the tire still is pretty far back. Here, they used the clearance to slam the wheel forward. Nice! Too bad I just blew my bike fund on a new fat frame...

    Yawn. They had the opportunity (since they are so late to the "+" party) to create something unique, but are just following the herd now. Imagine how cool a "+" version of the Sawyer, with a swoopy steel frame plus modern geometry would have been?

    I think they did a pretty good job--the elevated chainstay and super short chainstays are new in the market. The 29+ party isn't exactly raging, so I'm glad to see a big manufacturer step up.

    Just saw these in the computer at work... Many models are shipping now. This is the new Stache lineup, all 29+.

    Here is a good summation of what we know so far about the Stache 29+ Lineup

    I make maps and ride a 1x10 El Mariachi with a rigid Fargo fork:

    It's great to see another 29+ bike available as it should help guarantee tire production for us Krampus owners 5-10 years down the road. But I have no interest in PFBB's or Boost spacing so I'll pass on this one and dream of something like a Nimble 9+ with Dirt Wizards.

    Ya it's odd; they didn't update the regular website but they did update the dealer site.
