    looks great! I talked to the lbs and the stache is not expected to be available until Feb. Going to check one out today at a bike shop close to a riding area.

    Got to do a parking lot ride on a stache yesterday. It would have went better if it was a 17.5" and not a 21". Great bike. This looks to be a burly efficient bike. I am going to hold off until I can do a proper demo at the Atlanta demo in late Feb. Could this be a replacement to my 2011 Fuel EX8? I am not itching to rid my fuel but really interested in the 29er and its advantages. My LBS says I will be pleasently surprized how smooth the Stache rides being a HT. The XR-3 tires seem to be pretty good. Seem close to the XR-4?

    Any rumor if 2014 Trek will offer a carbon version?

    stache 7

    pics on trek website dont do this bike justice, the finish is transparent so you see the polished frame just like the stache 8...great bikes and the 7,s price was 1499 not bad at all (they didnt have an 8 in stock yet)

    If I may ask...on your 19.5" Stache 8, are the rotors both 180mm front and rear, or is the rear a smaller 160mm? Also, are they centrelock or 6 bolt? I'd like to have the proper set of XT ice-techs on hand for when mine arrives

    I dont think it is centerloc because of the bontrager hubs. I dont remember the slx brakes (calipers)being ice tech.

    I've got a stock 2013 Superfly AL Elite and the rotors are centreloc (Bontrager hubs). I was thinking the Stache 8 would have them also instead of the 6 bolt style.

    I've seen others using SLX brakes with XT/Saint Ice Tech rotors with success, so thought I'd give that a try to see if there is much of an improvement.

    I hope the stache has centerloc.....i just figured not having shimano hubs it would not. If so that is a plus.

    As far as the brakes go I dont see why you cant use a ice tech rotor without ice tech calipers. I dont know if there is much to gain with just the ice tech rotors and not having the ice tech calipers. Let us know if you notice a difference. Does shimano offer a different ice tech brake pads?

    Ice tech brake pads have cooling fins on them. The caliper for say SLX or XT, is going to be same whether or not it came with finned pads.

    I thought the calipers had cooling fins but after looking closer to a pic it is just the brake pads

    Sweettt.....

    I am waiting to get a new tapered fork (harder to get the G2 one than I thought) without going to FOX themselves (and getting the new GOLD stanshion fork..)

    But seeing that I think I now want to go All-Out on this build (X-O) 2x10 setup and then I would have to get the Arch EX wheels you have!! Figured I am having my best year ever (work/salary wise) so why not just do it now (with new frame!!!)----here is my build now --it will look 'Totally different' this Spring riding these Pa. Trails!!!!

    --But I just LOVE this bike (Geometry wise)---it feels like a custome build to me!!

    Does the stache 8 have center lock disc rotors?

    Super stoked, mine made it to the shop! Hopefully I'll be riding it soon! Pics aren't great but it's all I could grab yesterday. I threw it on the scale at the shop and in bone stock form the 21" was 26lb 14oz. Planning to go tubeless and put some pedals on it so it'll probably end up around the same weight. Handle bars are 720mm and it looks as if you could run a 2.4 on there if you wanted. Even with the 2.3 you can see why the seat post is shaped the way it is, there would be no clearance otherwise.

    You can send your fork to FOX and have them do those upgrades. The gold is a Kashimra coating and you can get FIT converted also.

    My local Trek Concept Store said they weren't stocking them until April.

    I'm actually not interested in the bike but if it was a 650B, I'd buy it right now.

    First Ride!

    I got to bring it home yesterday! I didn't have a cent to buy a new bike but the LBS needed a new website (cycleandfitness.net) so in exchange for my time in making them a new user manageable site they ordered me a Stache! I think he felt bad that I was still on my 1999 Trek 6000 too...
    I feel like a kid in a candy store!

    Took my first ride up and down the street to start bedding in the brakes. It was my first time without clips or clipless in 15 years, I didn't realize how much I pull on the upstroke. Every time I started to mash hard I was picking my feet up off the pedal... But, I'm stoked I think it's going to be a great ride, I may get a shorter stem on order, around 70mm or so. I'd like a little more leverage when pulling on the bars and I feel pretty stretched out on it with the wider bars. Anyways... without further adieu, here's the bike:
