It's right for you if...
You believe mountain biking isn't about racing or showing off. It's about the experience of being out there in the rough, wonderful wild. For you, every ride is both a battle against nature and an appreciation of it. There's a whole lot of beauty in dirt, rocks, and roots. Trails don't need to be perfectly sculpted to be enjoyed.
The tech you get
An Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness in the rough and a Knock Block steerer stop to protect against spinning bars. A full SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with a huge gear range, a Fox Float rear shock with 130mm of travel and Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper, a 130mm RockShox Pike fork with a wide range of adjustment, aggressive 29x3.0˝ Bontrager XR4 Tubeless Ready mid-fat tires on beefy 40mm rims, and a Bontrager Dropper post.
The final word
This is a new breed of performance backcountry trail bike. If you love seeking out the untamed trails in the wild and discovering new lines while ripping bikepacking adventures, Full Stache 8 is your dream ride. It's like that one friend who's always egging you on to go a little farther, because there's bound to be something epic right over the next ridge or at the bottom of the next valley.
