Picked up my Trek Stache 8 the other day, what a great ride! I was looking for a XL 29er with a lot of travel for UK trail centres, this fit the bill perfectly.

Been on a couple rides around Surrey Hill and its been a revelation! Coming from riding a Carrera Fury 09, this feels more like a FS..

Very comfortable ride, rolls over everything with ease which allows me to carry more speed. Pics and spec:
