    Hello everyone, I'm proud to say I'm part of the Stache crew. I ordered this two weeks ago and picked it up last weekend. I originally purchased a 2012 Ex8 but it had a few problems so I decided to get store credit and wait for the Stache. I was also trying to wait for some reviews but I couldn't hold out. When I ordered it a few weeks ago my lbs had a 10% off sale on all 2013 bikes and I received a 100.00 trek gift card so I'm loving my shop right now. It's 25 miles from me but they have a loyal customer now. Sorry for the side way pics I could figure how to turn them after posting, they view proper on my computer.

    Nice, welcome to the fold! I've been enjoying mine, got a couple rides in, it's miles ahead of my last bike.

    23"!!! How big a boy are ya!? I see the o-ring on the left fork, I suppose that came on it? Mine didn't have one.

    Thanks, I cant wait for the weather to break here in Jersey to get some rides in. I'm 6 4" and did not like the feel of the 21.5 ex8, it felt like I was on top of the handle bars. This bike is gorgeous, the only thing I don't like about it is the grips.

    Never noticed the frame size sticker say 21.5" / virtual 23". Is that a 29er thing?

    No, virtual/actual is just a Trek thing. The seattube actually measures 21.5", but the toptube length makes it fit like a 23. My 19" Stache actually has a an 18" seattube.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    How do you like the stashe vs the fuel? The stache is on my radar along with a superfly or superfly 100

    Do you think the superfly HT will be a noticably faster/more efficient than the stashe?

    Anyone notice on the trek website the stache on the main page has a rock shox fork and different handlebars?

    Wow, that's interesting, looks like the 2012 Reba. Must have been a contender during development...

    The Stache used in most of the Trek promos I've seen is being ridden by Ross Schnell, who is sponsored by the SRAM/Rockshox/Truvativ group. Therefore, his rides are usually customised with their components instead of the stock bits.

    I've been curious whether you could use an ISCG guide as some sort of chain tensioner, to run it SS.

    I built this thing with stuff laying around in my garage.. I proceeded to destroy the rear 29er wheel in two rides at a very rocky/technical park near my house (I attribute this to the front end writing checks that the rear end can't cash and certainly not my riding style ) then, not wanting to put a lot money into this bike build, pulled a 26er wheel out of my laying around garage inventory, slapped it on and I have to say, I've been having a lot of fun on the new "69er Stache". I wish I could tuck the rear wheel in a little though. Would make my manuals a lot easier...

    This a very confused bike with two different wheel sizes, trek with specialized seat post/seat and the fact that I probably should be running a chain guide. With the type II sram der the chain stays on... for the most part.

    I just ordered a dropper post and a much needed bash guard. Can't wait to try the dropper post on this rig!

    Good job!

    I just completed the tubeless conversion and have to say it was EASY! Using stock Bontrager Duster rims and 29-3 tires. To do the conversion I used the Bontrager Rhythm Symmetrical strips (P/N 406892) and Bonty presta valves with 2oz Stans in each tire. With the first tire I didn't even need the compressor; I just used my floor pump and aired it up. Second one I needed the initial volume of the compressor to seat the tire but it was completely uneventful. Even with only 15psi in the tires I don't see how I could burp one of these, they are on there solid. Highly recommended for anyone that hasn't gone tubeless before and is scared to, this was my first try at tubeless and I won't go back. (Especially after having got a thorn puncture on my first ride on the Stache w/ tubes... )

    fox 34 140 on the stache 8

    rode the bike at a trek demo yesterday at amelia park in Hialeah FL. My question is whether anybody has tried one of the fox 34 front forks. My thought is that this would make it super stiff and slightly more relaxed front end. Anybody try this yet?

    Gracias
