You always hear about how fast Trek's Superfly 6 is. It's winning this race, it's crushing this course, etc. But that's only part of the story. On everyday trails, you'll love the light, efficient aluminum frame with Gary Fisher's G2 geometry, the 100mm RockShox Reba fork, and the tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels and tires that roll over practically anything. SRAM adds a 2x10 drivetrain with a crisp X9 Type 2 derailleur so dropped chains are a thing of the past, and Shimano hooks you up with powerful disc brakes. Take all of this, along with reliable Bontrager controls, and add its legendary handling, and you have a completely capable trail machine that just also happens to be adept at winning.

Seat tube cracked after one year.
I love this bike! It has been a great bike to learn the ropes of mountain biking on. I feel confident and in control on trails and appreciate this bike's durability. Ride quality is great, although I think it could be greatly improved with upgraded wheels. Despite the aluminum frame the bike is relatively light and agile feeling on trails. The brakes on this bike feel great as well. From learning the basics to conquoring my first cross country races, this bike is exactly what I needed to learn the ropes of mountain biking and continue to grow in the sport for years to come.
