Trek Releases 29+ Complete Bikes

The Trek Stache 29plus series will apparently be unveiled this weekend at the Sea Otter Classic 2015.
We haven’t gotten geometry specs yet, but we have a picture of each bike in the series, as well as a frame only option. The three bikes in the series are the Stache 5, Stache 7, and the Stache 9 (in order of lowest to highest price). The frame only option will be offered in the Stache 9 color scheme.
All the frames are essentially the same, just with different color schemes. They appear to have asymmetrical chainstays with the driveside chainstay being noticeably elevated for chain ring clearance, an issue that many 29erplus frame manufacturers had not dealt with, but rather stated a single ring 1×10 or 1×11 setup with a maximum size chain ring (34t for instance) would be required. Some had widened the bottom bracket and used a specific crankset to get around this issue since the chainstay/bottom bracket interface is already so wide to allow for clearance of these 3.0 tires.
Other interesting new parts:

New Sun rims!
All three bikes are specd with SUNringlé Mulefüt 50mm 32-hole w/cutouts 

New 110mm 29+ suspension fork!
The Stache 7 and Stache 9  are both spec’d with the
Manitou Magnum 34!
Apparently this new suspension fork has an air spring, E2 tapered steerer, Boost110, G2 Geometry w/51mm offset, 110mm travel 

This is huge!

The Stache 5 has a new carbon fork as well. It will be very interesting to see if Trek will sell the carbon for alone or in combination with a frame to offer a frameset ala carte in the future.

Currently we are only seeing the frame only option (not a frameset).

Here are what we know so far about each model in the 29+ Stache line from Trek.

    “The Stache 7 and Stache 9 are both spec’d with the
    Manitou Magnum 34 Comp!”

    The 9 has a Magnum Pro (as it lists in the specs in the latter part of your post).
