2021 trek Farley 9.6

Was thinking of getting this bike
was wondering if anyone owned one and what they thought about it
using for dirt trails that have high roots sticking out of the ground and some rocks
dont plan on doing jumps with it

I have a 2017 Farley 9.9. Nice light bike. 9.6 isn't 'that' different in capabilities. I've ridden everything from MTB trails, gravel events, Iceman Commeth multiple times as well as groomed snow trails. Awesome and capable bike. As for the roots, the tire volume is NOT = suspension. It handles roots/rocks just fine. Slightly better than a hardtail IMHO (which I got rid of as I wasn't ridding it as much anymore).
I'm running tubeless HED carbon wheels 27.5. On MTB trails I tend to be about 10-11lb, gravel, maybe 13lbs, snow, <8lbs.

I hope that helps you.

I have a 3 year old 9.6 that I LOVE. Have changes most parts out by now to make it lighter but really happy. Biggest change was put 100mm Mastodon fork on (great, a little heavy but now its a hard tail trail bike). I also got a set of 29x3.0 wheels/tires, which makes the thing super versatile. Not bad as an only bike with suspension fork. If you have more than 2-3 bikes then this should be one of them.
