    2014 Trek

    I don't know about the rest of the line, but my LBS told me the Stache will be available Mid Otober.

    Patience....they will be here soon enough. I waited 5 months for my superly to sow and it was well worth the wait.

    Trek has never been on the super quick release side of the next model year. They want to sell through the current stock and maintain good margins. What are your other options? For me I pre-ordered my superfly and waited the 5 months which isn't a big deal since I live in utah and it was a crazy wet winter.

    Which model are you looking at? Your LBS should have info on the dealer site. You are correct, TrekBikes should be updated. For example, the 2014 Fuel EX5 29er is out and that is not even showing on TrekBikes.

    Have them go into your local bike shop and ask the store directly. Trek is starting to get away from releasing everything at once, and releasing when they are pleased with the new product. They also have been releasing bikes to shops without having official media release's so when they do release on their website bikes are already in the shop and on the floor.

    I would say available at the warehouse rather than the shop floor. Most shops around here have minimal stock. It would be helpful for Trek to have their website fully detailed along with good pictures considering the money folks are dropping on their product.

    So what happens to the Fuel 26" for 2014 has the 29er completely replaced it? I bet they have a 650B coming this year for the Fuel line.

    A 650b Fuel would be freakin' sweet! That could be THE bike! I don't think it'll happen tho.

    No 650b fuel, they're mostly 29ers now with two 26" models the 6 and the 8, No more 26" remedies or slashes, 29 and 650b for the remedy, and only 650b for the slash. Yes I work at a trek dealer

    LoL!

    I guess so. Any new tech in the EX line other than 29" wheels?

    not really, standard tech with the suspension APB, full floater and evo link. Same OCLV mountain carbon. They did re-vamp their mountain wheels this year though, all new rhythm wheel lineup, new xxx wheelset, new rhythm pro carbon wheelset, all new hubs with stacked lacing and 54 p.o.e. rear hub for rhythm elite, rhythm pro, and xxx wheelset.

    what do you mean 26" for 6 and 8, is that for Fuel, and they are 2014 models? thanks

    They are still offering a 26 inch wheel fuel in the Fuel EX6 and Fuel EX8.

    OK so the 26" size is stagnant, my guess is they will have a 650B Fuel before next summer if not earlier. Thanks

    I would tend to agree with you. I have a feeling 650b will replace 26in in most everything. Other than maybe Walmart bikes.

    I doubt there will ever be a 650b fuel, it will probably be strictly 29", too little travel to make much sense for 650b, the biggest surprise to me was that they wont be making a 26" slash, 26" is still great for DH/FR and DJ

    I think that the 650b slash will surprise most, from what I have heard it rides awesome. Still very nimble like a 26 but rolls over things a bit better.

    Website still lists the top of the line Superfly 100 as coming with an XX build... surprising, as nearly all high end sram bikes are comning with XX1 (1x system), Sram isn't pushing XX 2x anymore.

    Is there a high end Superfly 100 with XX1 somewhere I've missed? (other than project one-- I'm looking for a stock model that you could find on a sales floor or at a demo day)

    Superfly FS 9.9 SL is coming with a choice of XX1 or XTR.

    Looks like they have quietly done away with DRCV forks. Seemed to be the week point for the 2013 Fuels and Remedys

    Now I'm glad I missed out on getting a 2013 Fuel EX 8, the 2014 is better equipped.

    Just noticed the DRCV forks are gone. One of my few gripes about my 2012 EX8. It's a shame because it is really smart tech. Works great on the back end.

    There was no Top Fuel in 2013, so why would they bring it back if the Superfly 100 was clearly better?

    I meant specifically fuel, remedy or slash frame only options. I don't have any need for a fat bike or slopestyle bike.

    Any carbon wheel options in the XC race segment? I assume the Rhythm Pro Carbon is more of a trail/enduro wheelset.
    Fall in Fruita/GJ. F' yeah! Lunch Loops are riding sweet and so is everything else.

    I was talking to the manager at a Trek store and he said 2015 fuel bikes will be 650b and 29", no more 26". We shall see if it's true.

    2015 sounds really futuristic to me--half way to 2020 when everyone will be wearing metallic onesies and driving flying cars! ...Anyways, any word on a 650b session?
