2015 Trek Fuel EX 9.8. Virtual 19.5" actual 18.5". 2015 Fuel EX 9.8 29er.

It is an absolutely phenomenal bike. It is incredibly light (27.7lbs), nimble and quick, even up the climbs, given its carbon frame, carbon bars, lightweight wheels etc. Yet it never feels out of its depth even when it gets really rough. Its difficult to explain unless you've ridden a bike with Treks Full Floater rear end, at times it really does feel bottomless! At the same time the RE:aktiv damper does a fantastic job at maintaining the small bump sensitivity which is something you don't normally get when the shock is so progressive through the bigger hits.

It is easily the best full suspension bike I've ridden. Given that this was just a Summer bike it has never been ridden in horrendous conditions and not looked after. I brought the bike new just over two years so it has essentially been used for just two Summers! It has been lovingly cleaned and maintained during that time and everything is still running smoothly. You only have to look through the pictures to see that it has not been used excessively and has been well looked after.

I have some brand new spare bottom bracket bearings that I will also include. The bike has a few minor scratches that you would expect, just through general wear and tear which I have taken pictures of. Some of these actually look worse in the pictures due the macro nature of the lens whilst others are so insignificant I probably didn't really need to include pictures but have done so to give a more comprehensive view of the frame. There is a slight ding in the rear rim, on the edge (again the picture makes it look worse than it actually is due to the reflection of the light) but it is just cosmetic, isn't buckled and does not leak any air from the tubeless wheel. The fork stanchions have some very light marks on one side but again does not affect the performance in the slightest.

The shock has a couple of small chips on the shaft which were carefully smoothed out so not to damage the seals in any way. This has no affect on the smoothness/action of the shocks stroke and has never lost any air. You'll see in the last picture on the drive side there is a faint rectangular outline. This is the outline of the metal protective scratch plate which has been affixed under the paintwork rather than over the top like you find on a lot of bikes.

I contacted Trek regarding this, for peace of mind, and they assured me that it is nothing structural and is absolutely nothing to worry about. Its just the paintwork cracking slightly due to the extra thickness of the scratch plate under it. If it doesn't then you may end up getting an absolute bargain! As mentioned, there is no reserve so please do not ask me for one. Sorry to be so blunt but I've had plenty of experience with time wasters in the past so its always good to set some ground rules!
