Enthusiastic about mountain biking. Into more of a all-mountain style of riding rather than anything specific. Loves the walm but hates the cold

I own the Remedy 9 and its a brilliant bike, very aggressive despite not being as longer travel as the Slash!! It does have quite a short wheel base as well, making it very flick able and agile. Absolutely love it on the climbs, it just goes up with all the grip in the world no matter the gradient. The slash is a little longer though, and when I demoed it I felt it held its speed better on the rough stuff. Only issue i had with the Slash was that the chain ring wasn't big enough as it came with a 32 tooth up front and definitely needed at least a 34 if not a 36 tooth! I chose the Remedy between the two as I found it much more fun as it was incredible agile and nimble The Fox Float forks on the Remedy felt alot more plush than the Talas on the Slash (maybe just needed a bit more riding to bed in?). Only thing is I find I tend to use the trail mode on the back suspension quite alot during pedally sections as the DRCV suffers from quite a bit of pedal bob in the descend mode. Oh well, I guess that's what the climb and the trail mode are for!! The Remedy was the more fun when riding down to its agility and shorter wheelbase and was a bit more forgiving on the rough bits, but if you are after a faster more downhill style mountainbike that carries its speed well, then get the Slash and upgrade your chain ring to a 34 or 36 tooth. Both are amazing bikes and the best I have ever rode. Hope this helped dude!!!
