Want a bike that goes anywhere and does anything? Of course you do, who doesn't? Enter: Trek's Stache 9. The 29er+ (mid fat) hardtail for the modern age. Fat, 3-inch tires wrapped around 50mm-wide, 29-inch wheels float over terra-not-so-firma like snow, sand, mud, etc. But, it's still a Stache, so of course it's quick, agile and flickable, so dry hardpack goes by faster than jean styles. Trek loaded the Platinum aluminum frame with all the marks of a fully legit trail bike, like G2 trail geometry, E2 tapered head tube, PF92 bottom bracket, dropper-post routing and a Boost 148 rear end. That 148mm-wide rear axle is enhanced by super short chainstays that let you rip through berms, dominate twisty trails, and out-accelerate your crew. SRAM's X1 cranks power a wide-ranging 1 x 11-speed drivetrain. And if you like variety, the Stache's Stanglehold dropouts are compatible with 27.5+ and standard 29-inch wheels too!

Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.

Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.

Comments:

It's a fun 29er! It manuals, bunny-hops, and jumps like a 26in dirt jump bike. A very capable hardtail, but I wouldn't go selling your full suspension trail bike.
