Trek Farley 7

I have a Pugsley Necromancer, but after 7 years am starting to feel the itch for something new.

The Farley 7 has a lot of improvements Iím interested in - dropper post, 27.5 wheels, lower standover height, 1x, internal routing.

Does anybody have experience with this bike? I plan to ride this year round. Currently live in Alberta. Alternative bike suggestions are welcome too.

Thanks.

Hey Slo Rida - not sure if this works for you, but Hardcore Bikes in Edmonton rents them. I rented one last year and loved it. I decided to buy a Norco Ithaqua, but that was purely based on finding a super deal on a used one.

The Farley is an awesome bike. For me, dropper posts and suspension are not priorities, but the 27.5 wheelset is great.

I just happened to purchase one. I like everything about the bike and plan on riding yr round through winter/ The suspension is what really sold me into buying the bike, as stated, I will be riding this yr round and I have read a fat bike without a rigid fork on the summer trails can be brutal.(so I have read)

I have a 2017 Farley 7 and have loved it! I think Trek nailed the Fat Bike! 27.5 is the stuff, I believe it comes with Gnarwahls on it which are a nice tire. My gnars are for winter only. They are Studable for great traction. For the money the 7 is pretty darn good deal!
