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 Stranglehold dropouts, a 120mm RockShox Pike RL fork, and a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain. Plus, SUNringlé Duroc 50mm rims, included tubeless rim tape and valves, 29x3˝ Bontrager XR2 Team Issue tires, a Bontrager Drop 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.

- 29+ has an incredible amount of merit, and this lightweight carbon frame brings the platform to its full potential
- Fun is faster than ever with a lightweight Stache carbon frame and top-shelf parts
- Stache is super versatile and equally at home on multi-day bikepacking trips as it is on rough singletrack
- We're not the only ones who love it: Outside Magazine says, "[Stache 9.7] is the world's best hardtail mountain bike—hands down."
- It's super easy to go tubeless with the included Tubeless Ready tires, rim strips, and valves
You might also like
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.

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.
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.

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.
