Need help deciding, Trek Fuel EX 9.9 or Titus X Carbon
Hey about to buy my first bike for cross country and need some feedback. I am 200lbs and an ex professional motocrosser and like to ride hard so need something that can take a good beating.
Looking at the Trek Fuel EX 9.9
Titus Carbon X with XT Kit
Does anyone have one of these they can give feedback on? I would go in and demo them but I am in Brazil for a few months and they don't sell the Titus here, but if i pick the titus ill just get it shipped.
No i am in South America for a few months and they do not have the Titus here so I can't compare. I was talking with Bob from bobsbikes.com and he mentioned that the Titus is for XC racing so Im going to cross that one out. So now I am looking at the Yeti 575 and the Trek fuel ex 9.9, They have the fuel ex 9.9 here but they dont let you test them here! I will have a look at the Ibis also, any recommendations or help is appreciated, I do not mind spending up to 6k on a good bike.
i wouldn't let your current location play a part in your decision. that would kind of suck. you're only there a little while longer.
was a major goal to do riding in SA? if not wait until you have other options.
have you considered looking into the DW-linked bikes? i hear they are good. turner, ibis, and pivot cycles all have this link. i believe iron horse?? maybe a couple others....but turner, ibis, and pivot are probably the big names i guess.
