    2014 models released?

    Just wondering when the new models are usually released?

    I'm buying a new bike shortly and would hate to pay full price if new models come out shortly.

    Cheers

    People are still waiting for some of the 2013 models. If you want a 2014 you better order it now. HaHa

    I was looking at the Mamba and just wanted to know when they usually announce the new models. I know the Mamba has been out for awhile.

    Have not been into cycling very long, but new bikes seem to come out late summer early fall. A good time to buy seems to be in November. The lower end bikes sell quicker than the higher priced bikes and may be harder to get a deal on.

    Availability is always the key. I find this more being toward October/November

    2014 models will probably be announced at various times over the summer. That being said, don't expect to see closeout prices on 2013s until at least October.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    Good to know. I've been wondering the same thing as the OP.
    I've been wanting to trade my 2010 6700, possibly on a FS. Have been wanting a Fuel EX8 for some time know, but am concerned which direction they are going in tire size for 2014.
    I'm already taking a hit on the trade-in of the 6700 'cause its a 26". I don't want to be in that position a few years from now if/when I decide to trade in the Fuel.

    Maybe I'm just better off with a Rumblefish or Superfly....

    id be shocked if they changed the rim size on the fuel, they just bumped the travel by 10mm this season. i picked up a leftover 2012 for a decent deal, wouldnt make much sense to make some upgrades then a year later completely change that model. they have plenty of 29er's in the lineup, the 26er fuel has enough of a following to allow it to carry it's own wait for a long time i would think.

    I guess they replace most of their 26ers with 29ers sooner or later. There is not much demand for 26ers anymore.

    Really? What are you basing that statement on?

    My LBS just sold 3 26' FS bikes last week. 2 of them being Trek Fuels. While you may not be interested in 26ers, not all of us like how 29ers ride.

    Well they must add 29er specific components, then the 29ers will ride much better. Haven't you thought that now 29ers use parts designed for 26ers?

    and 29er keep looking ugly for not so tall riders.
    for uphillers the are to heavy for my taste.

    marketing works hard to tell you something about more fun with 29ers.

    for me it just a different bike designed to make new money for the whole bike industry.

    so much blabla in the bike magazin. Suddenly nobody talks anymore about a tuned Topfuel with 9 kilos. such a bike is made for me.
