I covered the love it/hate it of the cable routing in a caption. I’ll definitely take it over any internal system but everyone (who isn’t a bike mechanic who looks at internal routing as a money maker *_cough* Jeff *cough*) _is entitled to their opinion on external vs. internal routing. It has a very different ride from a Fuel EX 8, or any of the Full Floater ABP bikes, but aside from that it’s a great comparable.  Aside from any Fox vs. RockShox preference the spec is virtually identical? Price wise once a rider replaces the Bontrager dropper post with pretty much anything else it’s a lot closer. Also, Trek is the biggest bike company in the world so I’d expect them to deliver a slightly better spec value through the same retail channel. Good food for thought though - thanks. I’d definitely recommend that anyone who can ride both bikes before dropping the cash.
