    Show Trek Stache 8 2019 $2499

    Went shopping today ... rode a bunch of bikes.

    Was most impressed by the Trek Fuel EX 8. Also drooled on the Trek Full Stache 8 but it's out of my price range.

    Came home and found this unreal smokin deal:

    Catch ... gotta pick it up in San Diego area or Albuquerque.

    I'm driving from Vegas to SD to pick mine up on Sun 2/24/2019. Lemme know if you need a ride! ;-)

    The Stache 8 isn't for everyone and has some compromises for more hard core riding. For more "casual" and bike-packing riding it seems more suitable.

    Here are some helpful reviews.

    ya those trek configurations just don't appeal to my XC weight weenie minimalist values. Plus this deal is a huge YMMV due to the geographic limitation.

    Dang, that's a great deal. I'd pick it up today if they could ship to a Phx store.

    Had an email exchange with them yesterday. Tried my best to get an XL shipped to Phx to no avail.

    I'm driving down on Sun to pick up my XL. I plan on camping and riding a day or two in the SD area before returning to Vegas.

    If you want, buy yours, tell 'em to leave it in the box, I'll pick it up and ship it UPS on Mon to Phx.

    For that matter anyone who wants me to pick up and ship a bike for 'em, I'll do it.

    Sounds like a cool adventure and a very kind offer. I'm going to pass, but I appreciate it.

    Try contacting your local dealer and see if they can get you one. Like this guy did ...
