Love big rides on rooty, rocky terrain, marathon XC races, and exploring by bike.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 9 - Why Are We Doing a Cross-Country Field Test?
Very curious on choice of Trek XC whips. Why SuperCaliber over Top Fuel? Maybe I am misinterpreting Trek's marketing spiel and/or Dan Sapp's review, but the SuperCaliber seems more in line with the XC hardtail that you say will serve as a low-end outlier in the test than it does with the modern short-travel bikes (Scalpel SE, new 120/120 Epic, recently reviewed Spot Ryve 115). The Top Fuel is more in line with those bikes in terms of travel and geo numbers, and since it's historically been Trek's race platform, it's a good example of the direction that XC bikes are going.
