OK, ladies and gents. I test rode a Trek Fuel EX 7 29er today and was blown away. Bike handled well, descended a hell of a lot easier than my HT 29er (obvious, I know), and even felt like it climbed almost as well as my HT 29er once I locked out the rear. I doubt I would have any regrets buying this bike, but here's my issue - do I pull the trigger after only one test ride? I'd really like to try the Remedy 29er, but I'm not sure I even need the extra suspension with the trails I ride here in San Diego. I was eyeballing the Norco 29ers as well (seem to have better specs for less $$), but am I just being silly by not buying a bike that I'm perfectly happy with?
