    I got this bike August 1st on sale for 2,200. It is simply amazing.The suspension is so smooth when you hit the trails. Or you can lock the suspension for riding on the street. With its 30 gears you won't have any problem finding one that fits whatsoever your riding over. I'm surprised how easy it was to get to a top speed of 29mph on a flat street ( no hills).Fun versatile and a great deal.

    squishy bike!

    my first ever squishy (full suspension) bike. the fuel is a blast to ride, just the right amount of travel for my home trails without feeling burly and slacked out like a big travel bike. the stock wheels on the Ex 8 are nothing to write home about but they're solid - in any case that's where i'd upgrade first. the tires do come tubeless ready though, which is pretty great. go tubeless, you won't regret it. slap on a dropper post and maybe new wheels and the fuel ex 8 is everything you could ask for in a trail bike for all but the burliest riding.

      I ride road and rail trails with my wife typically, but I also work in Colorado and keep my Fuel there. I ride mountain trails from lift served terrain like Vail or Breckenridge or local locations like Palmer Park. This bike is awesome. Handles most everything, including dirt trails, rocks, jumps, drops (3 ft or so), uphills, downhills, etc. The suspension is great. downhill you can setup the suspension to take the hits, yet uphill stiffens out for efficient climbing. The 29" wheels make for a smoother ride and easier to overcome obstacles. When in very tight rocks or builders on steep slopes can be a little harder to turn than a 26" wheel, but wouldn't switch due to the advantages of 29" wheels in other situations. LOVE THIS BIKE. Cloud use a drop post but that's an add-on.
