I have the opportunity to buy an '09 brand new for $1200. I've looked for geo in the archives section and done a few searches, but no luck. TT, ETT, ST and SO for a 17.5" would be great if anyone has them or has a link.

Thanks,
David

They did not make a 69er for 2009. The last year was 2008. Here is a link for the info on the bike. http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/2008/archive/topfuel69er

For geometry check out this link and contact Trek. http://www.trekbikes.com/faq/questions.php?questionid=98

Here is a scan of what I have on file of the info though.

Edit: Oops, I had managed to put out of my mind the horrid color changes for the 09's. And sorry about confusing the request for 3x9 geo with the 3x9 top fuel geo. It's was easy enough to do with their naming scheme for the bikes though. :)

Umm, yes they did, and it is listed on the website and it's what is in the shop. But thanks for the reply anyways- I am looking at the hardtail BTW.

Thanks 24- now I have to decide if I should go with the 17.5 or the 19.5. I'm in between sizes- anyone else have any wisdom on fit?

I bought 19.5 just before Xmas.I am 173cm and i changed stem to 60mm Easton and rizer bar EA 70 Hi rize.
Anyway i like to have room for bodylanguage so no manufactures "right" size is suitable for me.
Pic is taken before any adjustments of seat etc.Right out of box.
In real life T-Rex 69 looks way better than on pics.Camera angle or ???
We have too much snow at the moment=No true trail analysis accomplished so far.

Trek 69er geo comes out on the 'large' size: I'm about 5'11" and have the 19.5" 08, which is plenty of bike for me even though my other bikes are 20" and 21" (the latter is definitely a bit too big for me). My position is on the stretched side which is ideal for the terrain here (fast XC) but less optimal when it gets technical. IMO, if in doubt, drop down a size or simply get a shorter stem.

And yes, the bikes are beautiful. Mine is the all-white and it is gorgeousss, my preciousss! A huge shame Trek aren't doing them any more.

smalls ....

Anybody know of a small (15.5) Trek 69er for sale? I've been looking, but all I found was one that sold on ebay 3 days before I started searching in late November.

I know where there is a white one you could pick up for ...oh,$900 and a set of studded tires;). (hope this doesn't get your post moved)
Or you could test ride mine if you think you might want the 17.5 size. I actually set mine up for my son to ride and he's about your height.

I looked around, but the best I could find is the 08 geometry?
Something isn't right with that... it seems like the head angles and seat angles are swapped. Indeed... I have the original print catalog and it shows it right here. Besides, you can just look at one of these bikes and it's obviously not a 72 degree head angle on them.

Good catch.:thumbsup: If you look at the post below the graph it shows them the correct way.
