    Does anyone on here know what the model name of this Trek bike is? Obviously it’s a full suspension Trek but I don’t see any model names on it and the guy listing it isn’t sure.

    Sure it's a trek @SummitBound? Could just be a sticker on it. Ask for a serial number. Trek has done the shock mount down by the BB for years now (meaning the rear shock is mounted vertically), not typically like how this frame shows.

    Most likely! Saw it on FB marketplace super super cheap but was not sure on the model. It all makes sense now though and I am not interested :).

    Already been covered, but pretty sure that is not a Trek. The Fuel goes back a long time, but it never had that rear suspension layout. Fork looks mounted properly due to location of dropouts, Manitou does that arch in the rear thing, but not even sure that fork would be a brand anyone would recognize. And that stem! Holy Moly that thing is long.

    Deity kit looks good on that specialized. I got the same thing going on with a circus on my norco.

    Here’s my Norco One25, I usually do all my bikes as frame up builds, end up getting the bike I want that way.

    Took my 2019 Giant Trance 2 out for the maiden voyage today. Holy cow is riding a full suspension different. It’s like learning to ride a bike all over again. As well as adjusting using a dropper. But damn if it ain’t fun.

    Budget build AF. This has been my commuter for just over a year now. Received new last Christmas. Rain, snow, ice, all manner of weather. I've taken it on trails about 4 or 5 times.

    Additions I've made to tweak the experience:
    -DNM air suspension front/rear (modified frame to fit rear shock)
    -kenda hybrid tires K831 to replace worn OEM tires
    -shimano RT66 180/160 discs with ebc pads
    -Rockbros pedals
    -lizard skins chainstay wrap
    -Walmart bottle cage
    -eBay special locking grips
    -Dork disc delete

    Commuter mods:
    -rear rack to hold cable lock
    -anti theft skewers
    -blinky lights and bell (bell is great for alerting peds)
    -black reflective tape in various spots
    -taller kickstand to accommodate lifted ride height from DNM rear shock

    Most recent mod was the new discs and pads.. the OEM discs were Venturas and they were super noisy.. I was tired of resurfacing them every 3 months.

    The ride quality from the OEM chinese fork and rear spring/shock to the DNM was significantly improved. The locking grips have a much more planted feel and don't move around on me. And the tires are much smoother on pavement but have more bite than the factory tires on trails. Unfortunately they don't make this tread type in a tire as wide as I would have liked, these were slightly skinnier than the OEM tires. Happy with the bike other than that. It is quite heavy but it's good exercise :p
