New Top Fuel pics have finally dropped in the 2020 MY thread, so let's start one dedicated to the Top Fuel only.

Looks like a bike that will suit me. Any links to detailed info yet?

Looks great! Really curious about how much this will weight. Also if you look closely at the headset it appears to have knock block.

Funny enough this is the exact setup of my current Top Fuel: 34SC, Dropper, XX1 AXS

If this new Fuel drops in at under 27lbs with clearance for 2.6" tires I may be moving back to Trek.

Currently on my first non-Trek in 10 years (Santa Cruz Blur TR) and I swore I'd never look back but now...

Is it still 100mm in the back, or 120mm? If its 120mm, thats pretty close to the FEX. Makes me wonder if the FEX is going to jump to 140mm this model year.

The lack of 2 water bottles is getting old. Makes me want to stick to a HT. If I wanted a FS with 1 bottle. I'd get a Scott.
Seems they added Knock-block. Fox 34 SC. Rear lower shock mount is like the Slash, remedy, I hear the Fuel is getting the same mount. upside down shock mount was something Scott does. Wonder if the shock will be some odd Trek only size.

What’s the ‘19 one?
Not sure exactly, sorry. I'd suspect right above 2500g with the shock.

It's not the lightest, but I hope the ride feel makes up for that!

My 9.7 will arrive in two weeks so we'll see then if i'll end up getting a 9.9 AXS!

Thought I might go stupid and get an AXS, but dealer website is showing mid-October availability.

Excellent. This made me come to my senses, and order just the "regular" 9.9. ;)

Still, delivery estimate is early July. Damn!

24.36 pounds for a medium with tubes, per Trek.

Honestly i'm not really a fan of the pike on the 2020 9.9 axs... I guess i'd have to change it out for a sid!
