Trek Farley 5 Hardtail Mountain Bike
"FAT BIKES ARE THE FUTURE". That is the opinion of quite a few of our customers and staff.
The Trek Farley 5 hardtail bike 2018
combines good value with excellent specification Coming in with Treks proprietory Alpha Platinum Aluminium with a E2 tapered head tube. Bontrager Haru fork with OCLV Carbon lowers, E2 tapered steerer, which are 100mm suspension corrected. It also as 15x150 mm hub width and 197 mm Stranglehold adjustable thru axle dropouts on the rear. Combine this with internal derailleur cable routing & dropper post routing, It provides an excellent base to build the bike from .
Shifting is done by a Shimano Deore M6000, Shadow Plus groupset with a Race Face Aeffect, 28T Direct Mount Narrow-Wide chainset and a Shimano HG50, 11-42, 10speed wide ratio cassette and a KMC X10. This will easily provide enough gearing range to get you up the steepest climbs. Stopping duties are taken care of by Sram's level brakeset
Trek have not scrimped when it comes to the wheelset either. Speccing the Trek Farley 5 with fully sealed Bontrager hubs, Bontrager Gnarwharl 27.5x4.50 tyres and some of the best rims on the market in the Sunn ringle mulefut 80mm rims. As an added bonus the bontrager tyres are tubeless ready. All that is needed are tubeless rim strips and valves and boom bye bye inner tubes.
As with a lot of Trek bikes the finishing kit comes courtesey of Bontrager which i am a big fan of as isn't an after thought like you find with some other brands, Trek spec decent bar widths and stem lengths and actually care about how the bike handles and rider position on the bike.
