    Tire size on Fuel EX

    Curious what the largest tire sizes people have had success with. From a soon to be proud owner of Fuel EX 9.

    Does anyone have a set the the Bontrager 25mm riser bars that would have come stock on a Fuel EX8 that they would be willing to part with? Preferably like new condition. I want to change out the Big Sweep that came on the bike.

    Also does anyone how if I can just unbolt the locking stock bontrager (single clamp type) grips or will it require more to remove the grips?

    You should be able to remove the stock grips by just unlocking the bolts

    I have a Bonty XR4 2.35 (a large volume full size 2.35 if you've never seen one) on the rear of my 2010 EX9 with no rubbing. Unless you're looking at a downhill 2.5, you should be safe with pretty much anything.

    Thanks a lot.

    Dy3ecs,
    Thank you very much for the info. Do you happen to have the template or how to cut it ?
    Again, thanks

    Did not have any template. Just had a lot of time and patience when I did it. Make sure the 3d pattern line up when joining two parts to make it seemless. You can actually heat it a little bit to make it more pliable at the countours of the frame.

    Thanks for quick responding and the tips. Just ordered 1 from eBay the 1 they use for car (hook, roof, dash board.....) it's dirt cheap to give it a try, will let you know how it goes.
    Thanks again

    Thanks!
    I am trying to decide on what handlebars to replace stock ones with.

    Got it on 31-12 2011!
    Like it so far and i'm still testing it but i've a question about the steel ring (between the bracket and the granny gear) and the little black alu half cirkel that came apart with it

    Think its mounted correct but what does it do? If the chain comes off it just falls of that too and still damage the frame i think..

    Nope, that's a 15.5 inch frame.
    17.5 was a bit too large and the 15.5 a bit too small, i'm the exact size of an 16.5 but trek doesn't make this size so i got the small one.

    Magic Marcel,

    Thanks yeah I thought it looked a bit small for the 17.5". How much does it weigh can I ask? I am 90% certain at minute I am going to buy a 2012 fuel ex 9.8, fantastic bike by all accounts.

    Col
