Trek Stache 9
- Huge 3inch 29er Plus tyres offer improved rollover and incredible traction
- Backbone of the Stache frame is a wide press-fit BB92 shell the promotes direct power delivery
- Bontrager’s 80mm Rhythm Pro stem had to go to sharpen the Stache’s steering and shift rider weight rearwards
Trek has never been afraid to experiment with alternative wheel sizes. The Stache 9 29+, however, takes this open-minded approach to a whole new level, with 3in tyres, mounted on 50mm wide 29er rims and slotted into ultra-short chainstays.
The monster-truck tweaks also include wider Boost 110 and 148 dropout spacing, to accommodate those bulbous treads. Beautifully-made frame, with extensively sculpted aluminium tubing.
