    Trek 07 EX8 vs 08 EX8

    I have been looking at some used bikes and was wondering if anyone has any experience with these two bikes. I have played around on the 08 model and it is fine. I was wondering if I could get a good deal on the 07 EX8 if it was a good suspension. I know they upgraded it but to what extent.
    Thanks in advance, Marmax

    I was under the impression that there was a significant upgrade in '08, but I don't follow Trek closely so I may be wrong about that. If you're looking at an '07 bike, I'd want to make sure that it has the APS pivot system, full-floating shock mount, etc.

    That is what I'm worried about. I don't know either. Thanks

    You can find specs on older bikes at Trek's website. They don't have too many details on pre-2008 bikes, though. Based on the pictures, it looks to me like the 2007 Fuel EX8 has a very different rear suspension design than the 2008 Fuel EX8. In addition, the fork and shock on the 2007 model look like they're probably not as advanced as the 2008.
