Product Details

2012 Trek Fuel EX 6

Trek's Fuel EX 6 maximizes your off-road action with Trek's super-efficient Full Floater suspension matched with a Fox shock that delivers 120mm of travel. Trek's Active Braking Pivot separates brake forces from suspension, for total control on rough sections whether you're braking or not. Control continues up front with a 120mm-travel RockShox Recon fork that keeps you flying through the burly stuff. And to keep your speed over all terrain, this sweet full-suspension rig is spec'd with powerful Elixir discs and a slick-shifting 27-speed Shimano drivetrain with an upgraded SLX rear derailleur. Plus, it boasts Bontrager's fast wheels and tires to keep you grounded, if that's your thing.

    I upgraded from a Trek 3900 to the EX6 to bridge the gap bewteen my hardtail and full suspension needs. The EX6 has surpassed my expetations when it comes to quality. The only thing lacking is the braking. After a few longer rides the brakes tend to howl and get mushy. Will be upgrading soon.

    I only weigh 150lb so this is all I need to take 6ft drops with plush landing. But getting up a hill is a work out due to its weight. Stock tires work great on hard dry dirt but in wet dirt and mud condition it's like biking on ice. Changed to maxxis minon on front and high roller on back.

    Shopped around a bit until i made up my mind that the Red Shield Warranty along with Treks lifetime frame warranty far exceeded any other bike out there. I am really happy with my bike and i know that i am covered if something was to break down. I ride 2-3 a week...i was told to give it about a 90 day break in period but due to the trails in OC...that break in period took about 30 days!

      i cant tell you how much this bike changed my love for rideing. as hard as that is to believe. i cant seem to get off this bike. when i strap into the peddals it becomes part of me. its like avatar and stuff. lol. and for the price believe me when you buy a similar bike online ie.. sug ret price 4000 buy now for 1500. its not worth it. believe me... i know a guy that got one he road it for a week. it broke. now hes out 1500 with no warranty. and a bike not worth fixing. i have the protection plan. its worth every penny. i paid i think 230 for 5 yrs. fully covered. man that really takes the financial burden for wrecking. it seems to allow me to push alittle harder. not that i fall alot.

      Comments:

      Good bike overall, would change some parts maybe rear shock for a little more stiffness... the drivetrain shifts fairly nice, except MUST be set up properly(the store I bought mine from didn't fill the shocks enough or tune the derailleur properly and as a result it ripped off the first day, and now is a little iffy on the lower gears(either from damage caused by improper setup or maybe just cable stretch....) either way I am a little nervous when climbing now wondering if It will be solid to shift while climbing.... otherwise, great bike, fast, tight handling... not really heavy, but by no means light... I think with a few better parts this could be a real winner...
