Strengths:    Light weight. Incredible handling. Amazing acceleration. Nice ride, versatile with the CTD fork and shock. Descends amazingly well for a race bike. The 29er wheels go over stuff my 26" bike had trouble with. Really good looking. Well spec'd for the price

Weaknesses:    My skills compared to the bike's abilities! Black is hard to keep clean.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this as my all around trail bike and to race occasionally. Coming off 26" Giant Trance X with 5" of travel which rode nice and decended very well. Superfly descends just as well as Trance but climbs better. Incredibly stable. I am clearing technical stuff up and down that I could not clear on the Trance. I switched out the 29-1 tires for 29-3 Experts and made them tubeless before my first ride so I can't comment on the stock tires. Gearing is perfect. Love the 2X10. Was worried that the top gear would not be enough, but that hasn't been a problem. Also worried that the 26 tooth small ring might be too big for steep climbs, but that hasn't been a problem either. Black hard to keep clean. I don't do big jumps or drops, but I do like to go fast both up and downhill. No problem with this bike. Got $1,000 off at Westlake Bike Shop. Good service and store.

My personal review of the Trek Superfly 100 Elite SL

I am [U]not[/U] a bike reviewer or even very technical regarding parts/geometry. Don't knock it. :p [B]My History[/B] - I have been riding for 8 years. I had a 16.5" 2005 Giant Trance 4 (26in) the whole time. I upgraded some parts on it to have new tires, Shimano Deore XT front derailleur, and ... Read More »

Trek Superfly 100 Elite SL availability: None?

After a a bit of review, research and test rides I finally decided on a Superfly 100 Elite SL for my style of riding. It is a sweet, sweet ride. Only now, I'm told this bike is not available in a 21" frame. I get various reasons: sold out, never produced, production run issues that caused delayed ... Read More »

Considering the Trek Superfly 100 Elite SL

This would be my first 29er. I've test riden the Superfly 100 AL, and I thought that was light, so I'm sure to be happy with the SL. I'm seeing that there is a [B]big[/B] delay on this model. Whats the best way/place to find if there are shops with the bike in stock in my size? I'd consider trav ... Read More »
