Cyclists ride paths. Mountain bikers leave trails.

Price includes eBay and PayPal fees and shipping within the USA and Canada- or make an offer!. Willing (reasonably) to travel or meet halfway for delivery.*** I live 45 minutes from Austin, TX. This mint 2014 Trek Remedy 8.29 is in perfect condition. Bought for my wife, she's had only one ride at a local pump track! The 15.5 inch frame features a longer seat post and 105mm no-rise stem to fit and balance my 5'11" tall wife. This means a lighter frame with room in the cockpit to really let it fly. A simple stem and seat post swap would bring controls back to the standard 15.5 rider fit. Other upgrades include: Brand spankin' new Continental Trail King 2.4" monster truck tires so fresh they still have the rubber hairs left from the mold. There's nothing this bike couldn't find grip on. Shimano Saint pedals will keep your feet glued on the climbs yet ready to throw a leg out moto style when you blast into berms on fast and rowdy descents. I'll even throw in a Bontrager Evoke RL saddle that's never left it's original packaging for free. Married in June, my wife and I just don't have room to keep three big bikes in our small rental home. Since mountain biking "is my thing", she opted to occasionally share my Giant Reign X and gave the word to sell the Remedy... and here it is! Details / Frameset Trek Black/SinisterBlack/Placid Blue Alpha Platinum Aluminum, ABP Convert, Full Floater, E2 tapered head tube, internal derailleur & dropper post routing, press fit BB, ISCG 05 mount, magnesium EVO Link, Mino Link, down tube guard, G2 Geometry, 140mm travel Suspension Fox Evolution Series 34 Float w/CTD (climb-trail-descend) damper, rebound, E2 tapered steerer, 15QR thru axle, custom G2 Geometry w/51mm offset, 140mm travel Fox Evolution Series Float w/DRCV, CTD (climb-trail-descend) damper, rebound, tuned by Trek in California, 7.75x2.125" Wheels Bontrager sealed cartridge bearing, 15mm alloy axle front hub; 142x12 rear hub w/Bontrager Duster 28-hole Tubeless Ready rims Drivetrain Shifters: Shimano SLX, 10 speed Front derailleur: Shimano SLX, high direct mount Rear derailleur: Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus Crank: Shimano M552, 42/32/24 Cassette: Shimano HG62 11-36, 10 speed Components Saddle: Bontrager Evoke 2, chromoly rails Handlebar: Bontrager Low Riser, 31.8mm, 5mm rise Headset: FSA NO.57SC, E2, semi-cartridge bearings Brakeset: Shimano SLX hydraulic disc ***Since I work Sunday-Thursday and live 45 minutes from the nearest bike shop, there may be a few business days delay until l I'm able to have the bike properly boxed for shipping by shop mechanics. It this is an issue then please let me know. I'm willing to shift my work schedule to get this bike to the right owner. eBay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281414212884?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

East Bound and Down: Anne Galyean - Breaking Rad
Dudes, I'm a conservative Baptist pastor from Texas with one tattoo and a mountain bike addiction, and even I'm shocked by the close-mindedness displayed here! That really ought to make you check yourselves LOL @C9H13NO3- I appreciate your dedication to putting the healing of our planet above biking. Props to your MTB success, but even more well-wishes to your life-saving career.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You a Fair Weather Rider?
Rare snowfall in east Texas had me excited to ride... A separated shoulder and torn rotator cuff later, I'm probably leaning toward fair weather from now on.

The shape of the Feature (and the Super, which is much more comfortable) was better suited for my head shape. The Flux still moved when I tightened the back and chinstrap...like it was too top heavy. I wonder if their FF helmets are the same? The Fox FF helmets seemed to fit well while I've heard that the Bell and Giro FFs are better for round "Charlie Brown" heads. It's odd that different styled helmets would have such a different fit within a brand.

I rode a Remedy 29 with the 2.4 Trail Kings tubeless. I was only on pavement and grass for a moment, but it felt like the headset was much too tight-like a monster truck without power steering. The grip literally made it hard to turn at low speed. I imagine they must have crazy grip on the trail. The side knobs are weird though... Not sure how I'd feel leaning too far with them.
