The time has come to take a break from mtbing (mostly due to a continually fractured / non union scaphoid). We are moving to an area with expansive fire and gravel roads so to take advantage of this I'd like to swap out my Stache 9 for a cross bike of equal or near equal value. You can find more information on my CL post here: https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/...653041631.html

Essentially- the bike is size L / 19.5 and has just under 800 miles on it total. Good to great condition overall- typical small scrapes, rubs, and minor brushes from vegetation, trail surface, etc. The stock Chupacabra tires probably have around 30-35% life remaining. Specs:

Build:
Trek 2016 Stache 9 29 MTB- size 19.5"
Wheels: Custom Kokopelli Bikes built carbon 29x3" wheels (fits 2.8-3.25" tires). Hubs- Boost 148/110- DT Swiss 350 hubs
SRAM X1 drivetrain
29 x 3.0-inch Bontrager Chupacabra 29 tires - 50% life remaining.
Stranglehold dropout gives options 29 , 27.5 , or 29er.

Shimano Deore XT brakes
Bontrager carbon seat post.

Looking for a 55-57cm cross / gravel bike in good condition. Willing to drive up to a couple of hours from the Northern VA area to meet if interested. If someone wants to buy the bike outright asking price is 2,000 OBO- no shipping please.
