    My apologies for the late response. I am doing this right now for my 08 fuel ex 8 and ordered my bearings from rcbearings. I thought I had correctly identified them. 4 - 6900-2rs for the rocker, 2 - 6901-2rs for the abp, and 2 - 6903 for the main pivot.

    All except the main pivot worked fine, however for the main pivot I needed the extended inner sleeve, max designation, and rubber bearing covers on both sides (i.e., -2rs). This is a specialty bearing made by enduro and is identified as "6903-2RS MAX-E".

    Also, had a heck of a time getting the main pivot axle to come out. Had to whack away at it with a hammer for a while to free it from the frame/bearings. Likely a little corrosion holding it on there. Good luck.

    If you e-mail Trek they will send you an exploded view diagram of the rear suspension which indicates all sizes of bearings and other parts.

    I picked up this 2012 Trek Fuel EX 7 last night from my local bike shop to replace my 2008 Jamis Parker. I'm still new to mountain biking, the Parker was my first bike and I only put maybe 100-200 miles on it. The Trek seems to be a good upgrade, and I'm hoping to get my first ride in tonight!

    Just realized that I never posted a picture of my EX in this thread. So, here is a snapshot I took on a recent ride. If you look closely, you can see Pikes Peak framed between the handle bars and saddle.

    Haha thanks, that was actually my first car, bought it bone stock 13 years ago. Currently powered by a 300hp v8 from a 740i


    Took the EX7 out last night for a ride, HOLY CRAP. What an improvement over the Jamis! Hills that use to have me stopping for a break, I was barely even tired on the Trek! And I was rolling right over stuff that I previously had to dodge on the Jamis on the downhills. AWESOME bike! Worth every penny.

    About to make bike purchase this month and torn between Trek Stache or Trek Fuel Ex 8 or 7! 29er HT very nice to ride but i've always had a crush on the Fuel bikes. Are they that bad ass? The reviews are through the roof on Fuel bikes and very curious now. Everyone on this thread looks very happy with their rig..

    If you're looking for a trail bike you can't go wrong with a Fuel.

    Hi there I live in Thailand. Choices here are very limited and since last month the TREK EX Fuel 4 has come on the market. It is one of the very few FS bikes available on the market and importing a bike is not feasible due to he very high import duty. Can anyone tell me if they have experience with this bike and recommend it as I only see the higher specs being written about? The trails here are single track, quite hilly and rocky and I already own a 2013 TREK MAMBA that I upgraded with a complete Shimano XT drive train and DT Swiss 1600 tires and DT Swiss XMM 100 SS fork which I Love but I would like to add a FS bike to it. I should be able to do some reasonable upgrades to the EX Fuel 4 over time so I am most interested in feedback on the frame and rear suspension as I will not be able to upgrade those here. Thank you in advance, any feedback is very welcome as I am still relatively new to the sport
