My 9zero7 carbon fatbike has lots of buyers looking at it and most likely will be gone in a week. That leaves me without a MTB of any kind. So I will need to look into that. Still on the fence weather I should get Treks EX or Superfly.
The EX makes more sense for me. More travel makes this bike more trail worthy. Smoother on the big hits. At my age I sure could use that. And that bike would make places like Marquette and Copper Harbor a lot easier to ride. Not that I would get there a lot. But just all in all a trail machine.
The Superfly is well, a Superfly. Its geometry is made to move forward as fast as you can. Travel is tuned to climbing efficiently. Last year I rode on on Marquette’s toughest southern trails and almost went over the bars many times. If I had a EX I would so rail that stuff.
Both bikes cost about the same(a lot). I think I would more fun on the EX but I could sell the Superfly much quicker in this part of the country. So I need to decide if economics will sway my decision. Its not that I wont have fun on the Superfly, its just that I just don’t race a lot anymore and when Im not racing I would have more fun on the EX.
So… I have to sleep on it a bit. But not too long. Clock is ticking.
