    Hello to all. New owner of a Trek Rail 5 and loving it so far :)

    Hi all and thought I would make a short 1st post to introduce myself and my new Trek Rail 5. After watching lots and lots of reviews on Youtube, found Rob's channel and his review of the other Trek Emtbs which convinced me to get one. The reason I actually decided on an Emtb vs a normal Mtb is...

    Trek Rail 9.8 GX AXS Gen3 OR Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy

    Hello, Buying my first eMTB, and I'm divided! Tired of renting, ready to buy. I started with a Trek Rail 7, then went to a 9, then went to a 9.8 for the larger battery. Then I saw the Turbo Levo Comp Alloy is 1000 less. I'd actually prefer aluminum over carbon for long term durability. Bottom...

    Anyone tried the cane creek kitsuma coil on their rail? I have a rail 7 size medium and think the cane creek coil looks the part. The fox dpx2 21’ reservoir is about 10mm shorter than the kitsuma.

    Hi Folks, Looking at getting a trek rail, and it seems I fall right in between sizes L and XL. I'm 6'1.5 (186cm), so just wondering what others have gone for and any advice. Ideally it would be best to test one at the LBS, however this isn't an option at this time. I think I'm swaying towards...
