It's right for you if...
You're all about fast and fun trail rides with your friends. But you want to have fun faster, so you want a carbon frame and a high-end spec you can rely on for long days in the saddle.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with horizontal sliding dropouts, a 120mm RockShox Pike Select Plus fork with Solo Air spring and Motion control damper, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, and SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes. Plus, SUNringlé Duroc 50mm rims, included tubeless rim tape and valves, 29x3˝ Bontrager XR2 Team Issue TLR tires, a Bontrager Line dropper post, and a 35mm Bontrager Line Pro carbon handlebar to match the burly disposition of this go-anywhere, ride-anything monster.
The final word
Stache 9.7 pairs the light and smooth ride of carbon with the traction and momentum of 29+ mid-fat tires to make a fun trail hardtail that holds its own with both the distance-crushing XC crowd and your rowdy trail-riding buddies.

Advanced frame tech
Stache is surprisingly nimble thanks to extra-short 420mm chainstays. The elevated mid-stay makes room for the extra-big tires while Horizontal Sliding Dropouts allow you to fine-tune your wheelbase length.
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.
Internal cable routing
We route shift and brake cables through the frame to keep things clean and simple. And it looks great, too.
Use the remote lever to lower your saddle so it's out of your way when you're descending and cornering.

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.
