Got to admit that this one caught us by surprise. We had speculated that sooner or later, Specialized, Trek, Giant or Cannondale would spring a 27.5-inch wheeled long-travel trailbike. Not yet. At least not from Trek, who today announced they are going full hog with 29-inch wheels on both their Fuel EX and Remedy models.
The Trek Fuel EX 29er.
The Remedy 29.
Trek Bicycle announced the all-new Fuel EX 29 and Remedy 29 platforms
that will sport Trek's patented Active Braking Pivot (ABP) rear
suspension, Trek's-exclusive Dual Rate Control Valve (DRCV) shocks and
The 5.5-inch travel Remedy 29 comes in five sizes across three aluminum-framed models. The 4.7-inch travel Fuel EX is offered in six sizes across four stock aluminum models and four stock carbon models, while also being available through Trek’s Project One custom bike program. Project One
gives riders the power to build the bike of their dreams and have it delivered exactly as they want it to any of Trek’s thousands of global retailers.
