It's right for you if...
You're a fun-loving trail rider at heart, but you also like to put the hammer down. You're sold on the advantages of the 29+ platform, and now you're looking for a serious upgrade in speed with a lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Stranglehold dropouts so you can fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed, super-short chainstays so you can pop off jumps and throw your bike into corners, internal routing for derailleur and dropper post, an included headset, Boost148 spacing. Designed for disc brakes, with the massive clearance to run 29+ mid-fat tires.
The final word
A fun-loving trail hardtail frameset that pairs the light weight and smooth ride of OCLV Mountain Carbon with the confidence of the 29+ platform. However you build it up, this frameset will hold 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 Stranglehold 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 dropper compatible
Internal routing ports make it easy to add a dropper post upgrade that lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of your way for tricky sections of trail.
Internal cable routing
We route shift and brake cables through the frame to keep things clean and simple. And it looks great, too.

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.
