    Posted in another forum. My 2012 Fuel EX 9, it's had a few changes to it though.

    Rider: 189cm, 88-92kgs
    Bike weight: 13.16kgs (29.01lbs)
    Frame: 19.5" 2012 Fuel EX 9
    Fork: 2012 Fox Factory 32 DRCV 120mm FIT RLC
    Shock: 2014 Fox Float CTD Boostvalve XV
    Wheels: Bontrager Rhythm Elite
    Brakes: Shimano XT M785 Ice-Tech 180mm rotors (front and rear)
    Crankset: Shimano XT M785 with Race Face crank boots
    Chainring: Race Face Narrow Wide 32t
    Rear Mech: Shimano Zee Clutch, trail wide 11-36
    Shifter: Shimano XT
    Pedals: Shimano XT cleats (Have trail wide pattern I may well throw on)
    Seatpost: RockShox Reverb
    Stem: Bontrager Rhythm Pro 80mm
    Handlebar: Kore Torsion Race ED Flat 800mm 9 Sweep
    Front Tyre: Maxxis Ardent 2.25 LUST @27psi
    Rear Tyre: Maxxis Crossmark 2.25 LUST @30psi

    RockShox Reverb dropper post, 2014 Fox Float CTD Boostvalve shock, Shimano Zee rear derailleur, Raceface narrow wide single ring front, some crank boots and wider handlebars to round it all out. I've got some trail wide pedals somewhere, thinking they might very well be thrown back on the bike.

    Was it easy to fit the rear shock? What are the size differences in eye to eye or stroke if any?

    Shock fitted really easily. The original DRCV is a 7.25x2.0, this one was a 7.5x2.0 so the stroke is identical, the eye to eye length is slightly increased. You can potentially use a 10mm bolt and keep the original bearings, I found it easier to get get a high quality 8mm high tensile steel bolt, to match the bushings and just pressed in some new 8mm bearings on the EVO link. VERY solid connection there, the rocker sits a tiny bit higher, but no noticeable difference in bike geometry...or measurable for that matter.

    I changed it out because my DRCV was broken, the damper was constantly open regardless of lever position, Trek wanted a lot of money to fix or replace it, I was able to get a great deal on the shock which rivalled their maintenance costs, so it was a no brainer. Livened up the bike to no end, the large chamber allows me to run lower pressures than the DRCV, the boostvalve in trail firm setting does everything perfectly with a 25% sag level, it's responsive and quick on the power in and out of the saddle, the moment things get rough it opens up into that mid stroke and just hugs the ground, and on the big drops it kicks back in on that end stroke to ramp things up and stop it bottoming, but there's no harshness in the ramp up, feels bottomless.

    Nice! I was really close to getting a 2014 Fuel EX 9 when I bought my Superfly FS 9. I'm still not sure what was the right choice for me, but I am really happy with my Superfly. I rode a Fuel EX 9.8 at Trek Demo day and had a blast on it.

    Mine is a 21.5 with aluminum flat pedals. Without pedals it's 30 pounds, with pedals 31.2 pounds. Now this is on a bathroom digital scale so I'm not sure how accurate it is. I'm sure it's plus or minus a pound. Oh and water bottle holder. LOL
    My wife said WTF YOUR BRINGING YOUR BIKE IN THE HOUSE??!! I said, yes I have to weigh it. She walked away shaking her head. LOL

    Since we're discussing weights I became curious, so I just weighed my 18.5" Superfly FS 9.

    With Deore XT PD-M785 pedals and Maxis Ignitor EXO tires it comes in at 28.4 lbs. I don't know if the stock tires (Bontrager XR1 Team Issue Tubeless) are lighter or heavier.

    My wife's 17.5" Superfly FS 6 with the same tires and platform pedals is heavier at 31.2 lbs.

    It would be nice if everyone posted what their bike is, rather than an uncaptioned picture. There's a lot of nice bikes, but I don't know what most of those are when only a picture is provided and nothing else.

    2013 Trek Fuel EX 9.8 I picked up last week. Upgraded from my EX 6 and I cannot believe the difference. Only upgraded the grips and tires so far. I am sure it will get more in the near future...

    Back into the trek family. Just picked her up last weekend. This is the season that our trails are closed most of the time due to rain/ice and our clay soil that is severely damaged when wet.... so I had to get a roadie to keep riding through the winter.

    Nice! I have the same bike. I changed all of the white cables and bar tape from white to black, and thew saddle to black as well. Great bike. Thanks for posting.

    This one might already be in here somewhere but I've made some changes and roughed it up a bit... so here it is again (Scratch 8):



    And my newest Trek (Madone 5.2):

    I wish. It is a Domane 4.0. My first ever road bike. Bought a nicer frame with so-so components... I can upgrade components as I find them for cheap or as they break.

    As for colors... I want to replace the wight cables and tape with orange... Maxxis style orange. Kind of like I had on my STP200 before I bought my Camber. I did order some smaller pedals as the Time ATAC DHs are comically large. I now have just a normal set of Time ATAC XCs on it... no money for road shoes, so I will just stick with my off road shoes for the season.

    I test road a Madone 4.5 and loved it. It was a rocket and felt great and was marked $250 less than the Domane I bought... I had to be honest with myself that I am not a racer but rather a pudgy mountain biker who needs to keep riding. The Domane was so super smooth and nice. I could probably ride it all day without having a sore back the next day. The Madone would have left me hurting after a couple of hours on the back roads around here.

    That is a chimney most likely from an old house that burned down.
    Either that or it is a new style for campfires and I am clueless.

    Nice set up. Like the color coordination. I have an old 930. What should I expect to pay for one of these babies?

    The MSRP is around $2600. There are shops that bought frames and did custom builds. Those seem to be in the low 2's. If you want a deal on fatbikes, just give it a year or two. There are many options coming down the pike. I'm sure trek will have a more reasonably priced offering in a year or two.

    Ps- this is my 930 that I still have. It doesn't get ridden much anymore so I might give it away.

    Re: Photos of your TREK'S

    Here is my 2012 Trek Fuel EX7 before I have sold it. Only shock, frame and crancks were original



    150mm fork put some new perspective in it. It was fun uphill and shred downhill. 66° front, BB was at 35cm so it wasn't ruined. It was excellent upgrade really. When I bought the fork I was thinking about lowering it on 140, but this was great.

    Wheels are the best I had. 240s hubs are great, once it starts turning it won't stop for 15minutes

    Drivetrain was XT, SLX brakes, Reverb seatpost, Nukeproof saddle and cockpit parts.

    I stripped it down and had a buddy of mine powder coat it. It is a chrome base layer with a candy blue top coat. The logos are decals though.

    I changed my bearings out at the same time and had my suspension rebuilt by fox. Its pretty much a brand new bike now.

    So does powder coating void your frame warranty? I was going to custom paint my Remedy 9.8 (carbon) and the dealer said it would void all warrantys.

    This picture was taken back in November. I must have forgotten to post this picture, and because it involves my three Treks, I thought I should post it up anyway, even though the bikes are slightly different now than they were in the pic.
