2012 Trek Wahoo Disc 29 (Gary Fisher Collection)

Wahoo is what you'll shout after you carve a long stretch of sweet singletrack on this sweet hardtail. The Wahoo boasts Trek's feathery Gold Series butted-aluminum frame with G2 29er geometry and a 100mm-travel fork for top-notch handling, precise steering and complete control on any and every trail. Solid Tektro disc brakes put a clamp on the light Bontrager 29er wheels allowing you to slow down in any condition, should you ever want to. Plus, the Shimano 24-speed drivetrain and fine Bonty components let you cruise anywhere and everywhere with ease.

    i fractured my knee two years ago and running is out of the question for me now. I decided to get a bike to get my workouts back on track. My Trek Wahoo 29er was the best decision I made for my fitness. plenty of gears to choose from and the handling is terrific. Would recommend this bike to anyone i know!! Also, great light frame!

    Comments:

    This is the first expensive bike that I have owned thus far, and is worth every penny of it in my opinion. I have the 2012 model, and enjoy the colors as well. First, I had the pedals and the seat changed, otherwise, I have all of the orginial factory stuff on it. All of the accesories that I have are as follows: head light and tail light, speedometer/odometer, two bottle holders, bike lock (key-type), and rear-tire rack. The only problem that I really have, is original tires, the sidewalls are paper thin, and two, as a rear tire, wears to quickly. Yet, when it comes to shedding mud, snow, water etc., very excellent. Have switched both front and rear tire for winter riding. Otherwise, the stock brakes are excellent. Rims are great, frame is excellent. Handling is excellent. Excellent for riding around town, or taking a ride through the country. If you like to ride trails, for example single-track type of trails, or state trails (i.e. Katy Trail in the State of Missouri) or anything in between, I think that is bike is an excellent choice. It is just my opinion.

    I love the bike especially for the price! i do a lot of trail riding, been great with roots,rocks, logs, etc. At first i thought the bike would break being too rough on it, but its holding up awesome! i had trouble with the pedals and screws always came undone, but they were just stock pedals, so i upgraded a couple of things. My friend actually liked my bike enough that he bought the exact same one, same color too which wasn't cool. The blue paint looks the best! Great ride, highly would recommend!

      I purchased my bike from a a colleague who liked his other bike better and sold me this one. I was planning to purchase another bike, but not of this quality. I was in awe of his willingness to sell it to me. The bike is comfortable, gears are easy...almost instant when changing, lightweight and fast. I look forward to each and every ride! I love this bike!!

      Comments:

      The Wahoo was my entrance into real mountain biking. I live in [...] where there is a plethera of steep mountain trails that require a lot of climbing but also have great downhill-sections. Overall the bike handles everything i've thrown at it, whether it be downhill all day or steep single track. This bike was a steal! For the type of singletrack I ride, I did have to upgrade the tires and pedals, both components had no grip. Also, the bike could be a couple lbs. lighter, but it is by no means heavy. Other than that the bike is awesome and I recommend it to anyone looking into getting a 29er hardtail.

            Bearings on pedal shot after 1 month, chain skips under pressure and I am replacing my 2nd spoke after 5 months. The tires are like butter and pick up every piece of glass you ride over. I weigh 200 lbs and only ride on streets no off road. I guess this bike not made for a heavy person. My specialized lasted 10 years. Poor quality wish I had never bought.

              Replaced 15 year old no-suspension MTB with the Wahoo. Put on about 10 hours so far this year, about 75/25 singletrack/street. I shopped around A LOT before making this purchase. Hit some trees with it, the only thing that happened so far is a bent brake handle, which I was able to simply bend back into position. Front brakes are a little noisy, and so are the derailers when in some of the end gears. You get a lot for your money with this bike. Good cost to value. Couldn't be happier. The only thing I would change is adding about an inch to the end of the handlebars. My knuckles sometimes bang up against the gear shifters on the inside of the handles.

              29 inch wheels make a huge difference. This bike gives you a lot of high end features for the price.

                  Nice bike rides well my problem is after taking the bike back for it's 30 day tune up the service guy said my weight could be a problem with the wheels staying true. My weight is 220 so I would recommend buying the trek marlin for $70 bucks more it has double wall rims which is a more durable bike.
