Don’t call it “cute”. The Lush 29 was built for trail-conquering speed. Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum frame was shaped and butted for low weight and high strength, making the Lush a fantastic platform to help put power to the pedals. A tapered head tube and press-fit bottom bracket keep the “rubbery bike” feel at bay during uphill charges and technical descents. The Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension geometry eliminates shock lock-up under hard braking; a useful feature when there’s a hairpin at the bottom of a rock-stewn descent! The rear shock is installed in a moving mount called Full Floater, allowing the shock to respond better to washboard surfaces. The shock itself is an air-adjustable RockShox Monarch RL providing 110mm of travel to the 29’er rear wheel. An air-adjustable RockShox XC32 suspension fork also has all the trimmings: A 15mm thru-axle hub, tapered steerer tube, TurnKey lockout knob and 120mm of travel for nimble trail manners and changing conditions.
The 10-speed Shimano Deore shifters and derailleurs are matched with an FSA Gamma Drive triple crankset and 11-36T cassette for a huge gearing range and lightning-fast shifting, even under hard pedaling loads and muddy conditions. Bontrager AT-650 alloy wheels are wrapped with 29x2.3” XR3 tires for positive grip on gravel-strewn trails. Reigning in speed is the job of the Lush’s Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. Bontrager’s Evoke 1 WSD saddle and Low Riser handlebars give a perfect perch for seeing the trail rush by.
