    Good, versatile bike.Would definitely upgrade the seat and grips. Wasn't blown away, though I was expecting to be. Maybe my expectation was too high, but this isn't the bike for me.

    Pros
    Fox float suspension lockout option for short climbs. Good suspension. Solid brakes and decent tires.

    Cons
    Uncomfortable seat while on my sit bones. Overall bike geometry felt off, seemed squished and pushed forward even though I'm 5'7" and rode the Medium frame at 17" which is usually about right for me. Seat tube length was also a little on the short side and had to lengthen the seat post. Okay grips.

    This is an awesome trail bike. If you are looking for a top notch ~5" travel bike this is the right choice. There is no compromise when it comes to quality or spec. The Trek Fuel EX 9 leaves you wanting nothing more than endless epic days and countless miles of singletrack.

    Pros
    Great lightweight all-around trail bike. The quality of the components is excellent. The 2011 model comes with key upgrades over the 2010.

    DT Swiss wheelset
    Avid Elixir CR Brakes
    ABP Convert
    XT components everywhere
    10 speed cassette

    Cons
    The chain broke in 80 miles. My LBS replaced it under warranty which was really nice.

    I think this is a top notch bike. It really impresses me. It has Rock Shox reba Team and all shimano XT components. It works great, but as i mentioned, a few things like cables and knob, they couldn't stand being jared they way they were. It has a lot of "Features" so prepare yourself.

    Pros
    Adjustability
    Weight (light)
    Strength
    Components that come standard

    Cons
    Adjustability (confusing)
    Quality of little things (cables, switches, ect.)
