I cannot describe how amazing the color is.  Every time the light changes, the color changes.  It is fantastic–the best paint job I’ve ever seen.


One thought on “Trek Fuel EX 9.9 Project One

  1. Sweet! I am looking at the Fuel or possibly the Superfly FS but haven’t decided. I don’t race but my usual ride isn’t real technical so I’m not sure I need more travel then what the Superfly offers. My typical ride is about 20 miles with a lot of it being long climbs. I’m in EastBay hills in the SF Bay Area. I know you’ve been on the Superfly FS what are your thoughts? I test rode a Spearfish (AL) a while back and it wasn’t bad but at the time it felt a little heavy, plus there are few Salsa dealers here. I’ve been on a X-Cal for years and love the geo but other then the frame nothing is stock, full XO 2×10. Due to work related injuries I need FS now to keep it enjoyable.
    Love your reviews!
