    Trek warrantied my Stache 7 frame for an 8...wish they would've traded brakes as well haha. Can't decide on the name though...torn between christening her either Magnum P.I. or The Bandit. Pictures this weekend after pick up.

    Seems like most people in this thread have Stache 8's. Where are all of the Stache 7 users?

    Guess that kind of makes the decision for you. The price difference around here is $500-600+.

    Stache 8 in the house. Changes include a carbon post and bar, eggbeater pedals, RL cages and ergon GS1 grips. I have also put in Bontrager's TLR rim strips and set the wheels up tubeless. Look forward to breaking it on this weekend.

    Pics coming!

    Zippen, what do you think of the new RXL wheels? What do they weigh?

    Anyone have any idea how heavy the stock Dusters are?

    heck no some airwalks LOL, I cant justify spending that much on a shoe lol

    The bike and the spanks, helmet, cage bottle has drained me, I still have to buy a lock and some lube for the chain as well

    maybe down the line I can see it, but right now, I just want to ride with what I have

    There was a big $$ difference between the SL2 and the Stache

    So Im happy with everything I have got.

    I haven't ridden the new ones yet as the trails here are unrideable right now. | neglected to weigh mine before putting on tires and such. Claimed weight is 1580 grams.

    My guess is the stock Duster wheels weigh at least 2000 grams.

    Re: Lets see your Stache official thread

    Well the weather is finally starting to warm up here in Jersey, my Stache has been sitting in the living room waiting to go out to play since December. The good thing is I've had time to get all my safety items and for good prices, I even picked up some five tens for 40.00.

    How's it handle the tech ST? Climb? Descend? Anyone riding a 15.5? I'm looking at the 8, how's the fork treating ya? Again, thanks.

    Its a fun bike that has some great tech built in so the descents are stable. Its not as easy to get the front end up but the bike doesn't mind getting some air. It climbs great with no wondering by the front end. DirtRag said it had a neutral riding position and I'd say they're spot on. The fork has been solid so far. I did have the spring under the knob that controls the CTD mode slip out but it was easily fixed. I'm pretty satified so far as my commuter/ everyday local trails bike.

    Cool, I appreciate the reply. I guess I have to get on one. How is the CTD feature on the shock? Do you use it or set it and forget it?

    I've used the feature a lot if the conditions warrant it. you know...pavement...lock it out, general trail use on local trails...just keep in the trail mode, if I've got an extended descent..open it up. But...I'm not constantly changing it on the fly, my trails just don't warrant it because its mostly rolling singletrack...probably the thing I use the most is the reverb dropper post...more so than even the shifters, I highly recommend getting one even if it means getting the 7 vs. the 8 if money is a factor.

    Cool, thanks again. One more question, could you describe what you mean by the front wheel is hard to get up? Do you mean unweighting it to get it up and over an object or bunny hopping. Again thanks!

    Because of those massively long chainstays.

    Try a proper short CS bike like a Honzo, Yelli, or N9, wheelie central!!!

    I noticed the same thing but there's a good chance it's because I'm coming from a 26" Trek 6000. I did put a 70mm stem on mine and it has helped quite a bit, especially making bunny-hopping a more rewarding experience.

    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Thats all im gonna say this bike is sooo badass!!

    Ordered all the stuff necessary today to convert the tires to tubeless. LBS will call me when it comes in to drop it off to do the conversion

    For some reason my bike came with the avid elixer 3 brakes even though it says it comes with the 1s..

    Has anyone converted this to singlespeed? I am curious. It'll have to be tensioned or magic-geared but it seems like the bike would be fun in this form.


    This thread is a bit anti-climactic for a owner's photo thread since all the bikes look the same.

    Let's see a. Let's see your Trek Stache in action. Or in exciting destinations!!!

    As long as it is for an 1 1/8 steer tube and 31.8 bar, you should be fine.

    The bikes are just starting to become available to dealers but its in high demand so having in stock ready for you to ride is not always possible. Talk to the owner/sales staff. Bet they can help if you're interested...but don't expect it to be on sale given its demand.

    I think I got there after the action, but this is where I found my Stache the other day. From the amount of empty beer cans and Pringles containers, I think it was luring fat bikes off the trail, getting them drunk and having it way with them.

    Thanks friz, I placed the order for it In 65mm. Front just felt really long and stearing wide after riding it.. Thinking a shorter stem will help me out!

    sweet bike norcosam,, why the tire change?

    My orange spank spikes platforms will be delivered to me tomorrow!

    Im oficially done swapping for now

    Replaced with the same tire just the Tubeless version.
    I also replaced the stem with a 70mm one.
