Cam McCaul and the 29+ Challenge 14

When Cam McCaul said he rode a Trek Stache 29+ at Ray's Indoor MTB Park and realized how much fun the quirky monster-truck-like bike was, we decided to put him and the bike to the test. Could a rider as good as Cam actually do things like 360 a 29+ bike? Tailwhip it? What if he used a set of stairs as a ramp? Could he drag bars on the pavement? Could he pass a downhiller on it at a bike park? Can it be manualed? The answers lie in our 29+ Challenge video.

    It's all about the rider. Not the bike. Would have been good to see more of that in the full rigid configuration.

    How fun would it be to live in Cam's neighborhood?! Also, a good example of "pros are waaay better than you".

    This is exactly how Trek should have been marketing the Stache from release. Awesome video.

    After all these team edits and bike launch edits... this was much needed. Cam is the best.

    Does anyone else find Cam to be one of the most likeable guys out there? Awesome video!

    In all honesty, Cam could have done all that on a scooter, but then, still one of the best vids I've seen in the last months!

    As somebody who recently bought a guerilla gravity pedalhead I can also testify to the fun potential of current 29 ers!

    Sick vid!

    Vital and Cam should take credit for the impending 29+ sales spike. Awesome content, thanks!
