The Trek Fuel EX 8 Plus Mountain Bike 2018 returns with a major capability boost, with a complete redesign that incorporates more travel, a more aggressive geometry, and the ability to fit both 29" and 27.5+ wheels, making it the perfect go-to trail bike.

Alpha Platinum aluminium is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum streangth and minimum weight. The Straight Shot downtube design creates a straight connection to the steerer tube, leading to a lighter and stiffer frame with minimal material used. Complete with Knock Block technology, which is a keyed stem system that prevents the fork crown from damaging the frame.

Boost148/110 hub spacing creates stronger wheels, with shorter stays and more tyre clearance, allowing the Trek Fuel EX 2018 to run with fast, momentum-preserving 29" wheels or the traction and stability of 27.5+ wheels. Additional features such as Control Freak Internal Cable Management, Mino Link Adjustable geometry & the Active Braking Pivot all help create a more refined ride that feels exactly how you want it to from the top of the mountain to the bottom.

The Fuel EX delivers a rugged, capable long-travel ride with the sprightly manners of an XC bike, blending the best of both worlds into one uncompromising package.

  • 130mm frame is more capable and 29" or 27.5+ compatible
  • Boost148/110: stronger wheels, more tyre clearance, shorter stays

When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

If you place a deposit for an item in the shop, that deposit is non-refundable if you then decide not to purchase the item.  If the item is not reduced in value at the point at which you request a refund, we will, at our discression, return the deposit to you.  We are reasonable and will only choose to withhold your deposit for good reason.  This may include holding the product and being unable to sell it for an extended period of time; storage costs; the product losing it's value over this period for whatever reason.

Internet Pricing

As with many retailers, sometimes it is necessary for us to compete with online competition by reducing our online prices.  Thinking logically about it, an internet customer takes up virtually no time in the shop - you are not trying on different sizes (creating mess which has to be tidied by staff), often taking advice .etc. - a service we love providing but it still costs money!  We will endeavour to match internet prices in our shop but this cannot be guaranteed.  Similarly for the bike to work scheme, if a company is using a 3rd party voucher company (see our Bike2Work page) then we cannot match the sale price because we are not actually receiving the sale amount - we are receiving a lot less due to the commission taken.
