    Hey Ladies and Gents,

    I'm looking to sell my 2016 Stache 5. It is Trek size 19.5 but considered 18.5 via standard measuring practice. I bought the bike new last year, made a couple of additions and road about 50 miles on it. Mainly FLOOP. Reason for sale: need to down size. I have been riding my fat bike almost every ride and just don't see the point in having two big tire bikes.

    What has been done:
    XTR Trail brakes
    Rockshox Reverb Stealth (B2) dropper
    Prologo Nago X8 Tirox rail saddle
    Renthal fatbar 10mm rise bar
    Renthal grips
    Race Face Affect pedals

    Everything else is factory per Trek's web site.

    It is in very good condition with a little scuff or nick here and there. Pretty much normal wear. The bike has been babied. Tires have plenty of tread life and are set up tubeless. I am asking $850. Always welcome a good offer. Also, I am more than willing to let reputable members here test the bike out on FLOOP or easier sections of Santiago.

    Feel free to message me with any questions.

    What are the chances my wife wouldn't notice a bright turquoise 29+ in the garage?

    I bought a new bike, wife didn't notice at all. I had to finally mention it. About 2 months later she asked what it cost.....:whistling:

    So the odds are probably pretty good she won't notice. The bank acct balance though she might.

    :Roflmao:laugh:.. I have a somewhat related story about this.

    Just the other day I brought my bike to the shop for a cracked frame and was sent home with an almost brand new loaner. My wife didn't notice the different bike and even when I jokingly told her while we were looking at the bike that I bought a new one she still didn't see the difference between the loaner JET and my RIP I've had for over 3 years. So I may not be able to get away with adding a new bike but if I just get a similar color I can replenish my bikes undetected!


    Back to selling this beauty of a bike.. sorry for the added derail.

    I bought a bright red Giant Defy before Christmas. My wife never noticed it hanging in the garage. She has her car in the garage every night so it's not like she never goes in there.

    I think it was late January when she overheard me talking to my brother about it.

    Guess I'm going to Craigslist with this. Was hoping to have it in a home that I knew would appreciate it. Feel free to PM me a reasonable offer.

    I'm surprised nobody here snatched that beauty. I sure did a doubletake. Alas, my MTB pennies are earmarked for my gas tank...

    Good luck in the jungle, NL. :thumbsup:

    Agreed! This would make a better SS than the carbon Highball hanging on the garage wall. I may need to start my own classified thread.

    Don't use the groceries money to buy bikes. Use the retirement money. They don't check there as often.
