Hey if anyone has bought the new Trek fuel 29er, does it cost extra to have a tubeless setup or is it free?

    So, it seems even as a dealer there is no estimated delivery date for the EX8 29er if you order now, so I wouldn't hold your breath, spec wise, have some details - wheelset in bold

    Frame Alpha Platinum Aluminium, ABP Convert, Full Floater, E2 tapered head tube, internal derailleur & dropper post routing, press fit BB, ISCG 05 mount, magnesium EVO link, down tube guard, G2 Geometry, 120mm travel
    Front suspension Fox Evolution Series 32 Float w/CTD (climb-trail-descend) damper, rebound, E2 tapered steerer, 15QR thru axle, custom G2 Geometry w/51mm offset, 120mm travel
    Rear suspension Fox Evolution Series Float w/DRCV, CTD (climb-trail-descend) damper, rebound, tuned by Trek in California, 7.25x1.875"
    Wheels Bontrager sealed cartridge bearing, 15mm alloy axle front hub; 142x12 rear hub w/Bontrager Duster 28-hole Tubeless Ready rims
    Tires Bontrager XR3 Expert, aramid bead, 29x2.30"
    Shifters Shimano SLX, 10 speed
    Front derailleur Shimano SLX, high direct mount
    Rear derailleur Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus
    Crank Shimano M552, 42/32/24
    Bottom bracket press fit
    Cassette Shimano HG62 11-36, 10 speed
    Saddle Bontrager Evoke 2, chromoly rails
    Seatpost Bontrager Rhythm Elite, 31.6mm, zero offset
    Handlebar Bontrager Race Lite low-riser, 31.8mm, 15mm rise

    Grips Bontrager Race Lite, lock-on
    Headset FSA IS-2, E2, sealed cartridge bearing

    As it says above, comes tubeless ready at an RRP of £2499.00, but comes with tubes and you would have to convert yourself if you chose to do so

    Just order the Bontrager rimstrip & valves & sealant (i would go for Notubes) & it works.
