“There’s a synergy to the Trek that very few bikes can rival. The no-frills build kit, great frame geometry, and dialed suspension all combine to produce an effect that’s much greater than the sum of its parts.”

MBR’s review was base on the 2017 Trek Fuel EX 7. To make the bike even better the 2018 Trek Fuels EX7 has had some big upgrades an is in stock now:

  • Wider Line Comp 30 rims for better tyre support
  • A 54-point Rapid Drive hub (upgradeable to 108-point) for faster acceleration
