Trek Fuel EX 9 build

Finally decided to take the full suspension plunge. I found a barely-used Fuel EX 9 frame in my size online and have installed a Bontrager Duster wheelset, Shimano XT 10-speed drivetrain, and Avid Elixir hydo brakes. The only thing I swapped from my Trek hardtail was the RockShox fork and a carbon seatpost. The rest sold on eBay quickly. Still waiting for a few parts to arrive, but with careful research and some patience this has been a really fun project so far!
