December 16, 2013
Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Very smooth ride takes hits very well nice and fast in the front lockout shock

Cons: Would of liked some XTR components only all XT

Recommendation: A all around great bike races well in the high speed courses

December 22, 2012
Pros: Technologies
Suspension design

Cons: Gets twitchy at high speeds
Not the most stable in the air

Recommendation: These Pro's and Con's show the traits of every XC race bike. This is one of the best aluminum race bikes you can get. It has all the bells and whistles from trek. Full Floater, 4 bar suspension, DRCV, propedal, Hydro formed aluminum frame, ABP. And this all achieves one fast XC race day bike.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Super light. When I bought mine from the retailer we weighed it and it was only 26lbs. Handles great.

Cons: None so far.

Recommendation: I am glad I bought this bike. I was deciding between the Trek Fuel EX series or this one. I found this one new from the retailer at $2100. A steal in my opinion. Only thing I would say frustrated me was it was stated they were tubeless ready but you still have to but the strips to go in the rim.

Model/Year: 2009 Trek Top Fuel 9.9 SSL

Pros: This bike is the finest bike that I have ever ridden...While it lasted !

Cons: Chainstay exploded after 6 months...Unbelievably cheesey aluminum construction. Trek blew me off on the warrenty. Read the fine print on Trek warrenty VERY carefully before you buy one of these!

Recommendation: I would not purchase this bike until Trek proves that they can build this bike to last.
