It's right for you if...
You ride because riding is fun, and you don't want to fuss with a full-suspension rig. You prioritize solid, dependable parts over the latest high-priced gadget, and want a bike you can take anywhere, from gravel bikepacking adventures to marathon singletrack days to gnarly, rocky routes.
The tech you get
An Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with innovative features like an elevated midstay, Stranglehold dropouts, and Boost hub spacing for tons of tire clearance. The wide 3˝ tires mounted to 50mm SUNringlé rims deliver unbelievable traction, but are still spry enough to pop off jumps and scramble up climbs. Plus, it has a Shimano Deore 1x10 drivetrain with hydraulic disc brakes, a Manitou Machete 32 Comp fork with 120mm of travel, and a dropper post.
The final word
Stache 5 is an absolute blast. The short chainstays deliver a lively ride and quick acceleration, while the mid-fat tires grip loose terrain relentlessly and steamroll over obstacles. It's built with solid components that will hold up for all the good times on the trail.

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.
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.
