Product Details

2013 Trek Fuel EX 5

Step up your trail skills with Trek's Fuel EX 5. Featuring Trek's Full Floater and ABP suspension, this aluminum rig feels like it has way more than its 130mm of travel in the rough stuff. Yet when you're pedaling hard on smooth trails and uphill, it's wonderfully quick, efficient and lively. Complementing the trick frame is a RockShox fork and shock, a slick-shifting SRAM drivetrain, a host of durable Bontrager components and powerful Hayes disc brakes for maximum stopping power regardless of the conditions. Plus, the light Bonty wheels and tires tackle buffed-out singletrack, rock gardens and everything in between with style.

          Used for intermediate skill level riding. Bike seems tough and well built. Front brake is noisy even after numerous adjustments.
