Details

Remember way back in the day when we called fat bikes "snow" bikes? Trek's Farley 8 has hit the mainstream and we could not be happier. There's nothing like ripping a fat bike over singletrack, regardless of the season. Roots, rocks, sand: they all disappear under you thanks to 3.8-inch tires and the 100mm-travel Bluto fork. And, yeah, the Farley is great in the white stuff, too. Trek's light aluminum frame is quick and nimble, and the tubeless-ready Jackalope wheels shed 4 pounds over other fat wheels, so you whip this thing around like it's nothing. The 1x11 SRAM drivetrain keeps it clean and gives you plenty of gears for serious adventure in literally any weather and Avid's disc brakes keep you always in total control. Now go get lost.

Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.

Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.
