    2007 Trek Fuel EX 8?

    It looks like the Fuel Ex line has improved this year. Anyone bought or ridden one of the new Fuel Ex8's yet? I am considering this or the HiFi delux and am interested in handling characteristics. I have been a fan of genesis geometry though.

    The top tube on the Large fuel ex measures at 24.7" which is about 1/2" longer than the top tube on the large Hifi. 24.7" is the length of the top tube on my Large fisher Tass which fits me like a glove.

    The components on the trek are slightly better for about the same price. For one the Manitou forks on the HiFi delux don't have lockout and are 120 mm compared with the FOX 130mm w/lockout on the fuel ex8.

    I have a 2006 ex8 and I heard that they shaved quite a bit of weight of the 2007. people are saying between 1 - 2 pounds total. I haven't seen anyone posting that they have one though so you might not get reports except from some of the reviews of the fuel line that have been on various sites.
