Trek mountain bikes are incredibly sophisticated and require a small amount of set up for the individual rider. Going through this process is necessary to make sure your new bike performs as it was designed.

Follow these simple steps to optimize your suspension performance. Please note that our settings are a suggested starting point, not rigid values that will work for every rider.
