Those of you who are into MTB will know what a Trek Fuel is.

I got a 2010 Trek Fuel EX9 for my downhills and I does the job and does it well. This is an older model but the specs are still great.

Great Price

Personally I think going down a mountain in a £60 budget special from Tescos would just add to the 'extreme' nature of the sport, paying so much extra for one of these doesnt feel to be in the true spirit of adventure that mountainbiking is meant to be about.

You wouldn't make it to the bottom of the downhill on a £50 tesco bike, there is a reason for the price and that is for materials used and the engineering gone into the parts.
I bought a £700 rockhopper 2008 and the frame got destroyed doing downhills regularly for about a year because it was the wrong bike for the job.
Anyway if you do Fort Williams in a £50 Tesco bike, I salute you and declare you with the biggest balls.

Hot price and a nice bike! Just telling myself I don't need a full-suss for XC trail riding

Got to wonder where they've had these lurking since 2006!

But you will have the full sus available when you feel like doing a DH. Always nice to be prepared :thumbsup:

And think about all the money you'd save for 'Urban Commando' body armour and Lycra:thumbsup:

Mega hot. Glad it wasn't an XL frame otherwise I'd be sitting here worrying about how to explain a £1k impulse purchase to the wife

just watched it :shock: wouldnt beven walk down it let alone ride

Amazing price! Obviously not for everyone but if you're in the market for a top end bike this is the one.

It's got a carbon frame, carbon seatpost and carbon handle bars. Plus a RockShox SID Team fork that's super light. It's likely one of the lightest bikes on the market.

Excellent price, technology hasn't changed much in 4 years so this is stil a top bike!

Shimano XT, Great Quality Gearing:thumbsup:

This isn't really a strong enough bike for that either!
Interesting deal.. it's a medium size, carbon frame, old rear triangle (not hi-lo, before R1).. not a bad general trail bike i think. good climber.
Good XT kit. not sure about RockShox MC 3 though.
(i have the 2008 version of this which is slightly more evolved but still single pivot design).

ah "we currently only have 1 of this item in stock"
worth considering, but you can get plenty of decent full suss bikes around a grand now.. even if they don't have as good kit as this, they may have newer suspension designs.
whoever buys it, post here, i'll look out for you on the trails

This isn't a DH bike, more of an XC race bike with that travel, but it's an awful lot of bike for the money and will make someone very happy on the hills.

could buy a decent car for that price and it would be good for more than going down a hill.

i would rather go for a better quality bike around the 4k mark. these cheaper ones are not as good. if you want a true ccyling experience you have to spend 4k, preferably a bit more for a proper bike :thinking:

OMGWTFBBQ! £999!

j/k - have some heat.

First off, I am pretty sure the guy was having a laugh and sadly some will be actually voting cold because they can get a £50 bike BUT anyway
you say you purchased a rockhopper 2008 and broke it going down hill regularly. I have a Rockhopper 09 and I would like to ask you if you actually meant your frame broke by racing down hill and doing jumps and extreme stuff e.t.c. as I am pretty sure it shouldn't brake by going downhill regularly.

Just watched video - I wouldn't even dream of going at speed down that on any Rockhopper! I would expect frame to get damaged! I would think it acceptable to go down that terrain at a sensible (slow) speed without breaking the frame.

Anyway heat for OP.

likewise, but to my wife, not yours!

Fort William?

Surely anyone can go downhill on a bike?

FFS... its Fort William...there is no 's' ... a bit like the Tescos argument ....

To be fair a pretty moronic post, you couldn't go on ANY trails in the car you purchased. It is like posting on a flights deal i.e. Manchester to Channel Islands that you can get cheaper ferry - MORONIC!

Haven't a clue about the bike, but with a price drop like that, VOTED HOT HOT HOT LIKE REGGAE REGGAE SAUCE!!!!!!

You might get down some of (not all) that in one of these:-

They cost a little more than £999 though! If you can find one for under a grand post it on here and it will go hotter than a vindaloo cooked in lava!:thumbsup:

This is a hot deal!

Excellent price! very tempted. Indeed hard to justify this one to the mrs.

lol....i used to work with a guy who had a custom made racer (no good for off road) but mega quick...cost was about £3K - 15 years ago...my eyes watered when he told me the price.....knew its be alot but not THAT much - he got a big discount through a company scheme

Sweet Jeebus, that's a hell of a ride - never really looked into what those downhill guys do, that's incredible. And that's from someone who's just negotiated 8 miles of central London traffic.

I'd be interested in the answer to that too, there's so much choice in bikes these days it's incredibly difficult for a casual rider (e.g. the commute to work and odd weekend ride) to figure out what to get.

sorry but it would of had to of been £5.00 for me to buy into trek....... :lazy::lazy:

I am assuming you work witha company with a HR deparment. It's worth looking into cyclescheme.co.uk, most of my friends have managed to do it with their company as well as doing it with mine.
You get Tax free bike for work up to £1000, so you can pick up a £1000 for £600 roughly. Do you still want to ride off-road? Or just on the road.

I went for a Hybrid from Chain Reaction , which my knowledgeable chums felt was good value and good components. I'm not sure I would have paid the full price, but at £300 and fairly light to lug around, and easy to drop the wheels to stuff in the car.

Yeah some off road, but only very casual rides round country round parks and stuff with the other half. Most will be to work and back which is a combination of road and canal paths. We do have a tax cycle thing, it comes out of your wages pre-tax iirc.
