Trek has been rolling out some pretty nice bikes as of late and most of them have been Fat bikes or Plus capable, mid-travel 29ers. But this is quite the opposite. We have been seeing a lot of new life infused into 29ers lately, mostly in mid-travel, but also in bigger bikes. Bikes that I would have guessed would not exist based on what was happening with the rush to 27.5.
29ers, long travel, racing…2017…who would have guessed it? Guitar Ted, now a gravel guy full time and the past Editor of TNI.com, had this to say about the new Trek Slash and long travel 29ers.
