Getting Back to MTB

I did have a fatbike and it just wasnít my thing, it was sold which left me nothing to ride MTB trails other than gravel bike which just left me wanting more. My last MTB was a Trek Fuel EX7, 2011 model. I debated on either a Trek Remedy8 or Fuel Ex8. After some thought I decided to go with the Fuel as the trails in my area are more suited to the Fuel. Iím not a free ride or downhill guy just an old guy who loves single track. Might do the odd XC race. Bike should arrive next week and I will give a ride report compared to the old FEX.

Congrats! I also have a gravel bike and started to take it on single track. Although it was functional, I wanted more as well. I just purchase a MB this week.

The Trek Fuel is a great bike!

Sweet! Looking forward to the bike. I have a 2011 EX8 but it's down for the count right now and will be for awhile as the rear Fox shocks are very hard to find.
Welcome back into the world of mtb !

Welcome back, fat bikes aren't for everyone and I couldn't imagine just having that as the single mtb.
