It's right for you if...
You embrace the weirdness of 29+ tires and appreciate the simplicity of a hardtail. You're willing to spend a little more for nicer parts because you know they're more precise and offer extra adjustability.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame and stout RockShox Yari RL fork with 120mm of travel, Stranglehold dropouts, a dropper post to make the steep stuff a little less sketchy, and a SRAM NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with a larger 50-tooth cog for easier climbing. Plus, it has 29x3˝ Bontrager XR2 Team Issue tires that keep you connected to the trail and Shimano MT500 hydraulic disc brakes for reliable all-weather stopping power even when the trail gets wild.
The final word
Stache 7 blends value and performance with big fun. It's trimmed with high-quality parts where it really counts, like in the suspension and drivetrain, so it won't destroy your wallet but it won't leave you wanting more either.

29+ is a wider 3" tire that grips relentlessly while floating over terrain. Yet it delivers all the 29er benefits you know and love, like greater momentum and improved rollover.
How do you fit a 29" tire without elongating the wheelbase? Elevate the driveside chainstay up and out of the way.
Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5" wheel with all the benefits of a 29" wheel, and Boost148 in the rear lets you run wider tires and a larger chainring without affecting q-factor and pedaling efficiency.
Dropper post internal routing
Not ready for an internally routed dropper post now, but want to keep your options open? Select frames are equipped with the proper entry and exit points to accommodate internal routing for a Stealth seat post.
Internal derailleur routing
Sleek ports at the head tube and near the seat tube let you route your derailleur cables through the frame to keep your bike running smooth and clean.

Sizing & fit
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
