Bought a Trek Fuel 90

Just wanted to share my thoughts with everyone about this bike. I used to have a 2003 Trek 6700, but wanted a full suspension bike and after riding tons of different bikes I decided to go with the 2004 Fuel 90. I actually bought it two weeks ago, I just wanted to get some good riding on it before I shared how I felt about it. It is absolutely GREAT!!!!! I can not believe how much of an improvement this bike is over the 6700. It climbs a lot better, it takes all of the bumps and rocks etc.. like a champ. It is a very solid bike! I am a pretty big guy 6'2 225lbs (down from 255lbs) and the bikes suspension still feels firm while riding. I got the bike on sale for $1399 with disc brakes which seems to be a pretty good price. Just wanted to share just incase anyone was thinking about purchasing this bike. If anyone else has this bike and wants to throw in a few comments good or bad feel free.

Take Care

Congratulations on the new bike. Where's the pictures? With mud preferred.

It recently came to light that President Bush rides a Fuel 90. In other threads people have been having heated discussions about whether that makes it a great bike or a terrible one.

Fortunately, I know we won't be spoiling wkpat81's joy with fruitless debate.

Didn't Bush eat it a couple days ago? The news said he was "MTBing", so I'm assuming he was on his Fuel 90.
