Product Details

2013 Trek Stache 8

Fast. Agile. Confident. Capable. That sums up Trek's Stache 8 perfectly. This bike welcomes all comers with 29-inch wheels and a 120mm Fox Float that dares anything to get in the way. Trek loaded the Platinum aluminum frame with all the marks of a fully legit trail bike like a tapered head tube, ISCG05 mounts, dropper-post routing and a 142x12mm through-axle rear end. That rear end in enhanced by seriously short chainstays that make this 29er rip through berms, dominate twisty trails and out-accelerate your crew. The parts are just as dialed. Race Face is back with their legendary Turbine cranks powering an XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur that sports a clutch to keep chain retention high and chain slap low. Tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels with fat tires are your landing gear and your Bonty components are light as they are tough. The hardtail is back.

      Just purchased (broke my trek full carbon 9.8) what an upgrade !! out of the box it looks like it means business. I compared it to Trek superfly 9.6 and 9.7 (to get 1 X 11) Not even close on prices, this bike is a steal. The first ride will hook you. Shorter wheelbase equates to tighter turns. The rolling ability is incredible, and the thru bolt hubs will soon be the standard, making it easy to align the wheels perfectly with added strength and stability. They would sell a ton of these if they had an upgrade on the hubs and rims. Just color match the hubs and it would be a top seller..

        I bought the 2014 model (Gray/Orange) after a friend recommended I try it. After months of researching hard tail 29ers with slack head angles, this seemed like a no brainer. I finally stopped into the dealer and picked one up. This bike does everything I want it to. It climbs with ease and descends even better. At this price point, the build is about perfect. The SLX brakes and Fox fork convinced me to go for the 8. My first thought was to inspect each component to start upgrading. But I think I'll wait to see if anything needs changed at all. After 21+ years of mountain biking, and 5 hard tails along the way, this is by far the most fun I've had on a bike.

        Bought a 2014 Stache 8 about a month ago. Missed having a mountain bike. I looked at all the major brands. I also tested out a couple full suspension bikes. When all was said and done I kept coming back to the hard tail 29er Stache 8. The out-of-the-box set up was well above everybody else in that price range. Ive tweaked it somewhat to my specs. The first time out in the desert was a mindblower. The climbing ability of this bike is amazing! A definite keeper!
