Don't confuse Fuel EX 9.7 with other value carbon models on the market—this bike provides an outstanding frame and suspension, with a workhorse drivetrain and wheels. You get carbon where it counts and an alloy rear end to keep the cost down. It's great for riders who don't want to do just one kind of mountain biking, but want to explore everything from XC marathons to epic descents. The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use.
