This hybrid build-up of a Remedy 9 frame feels fast, smooth and capable. I love it, but am looking to shake things up without ending up with too many bikes to ride. 2013 Trek Remedy 9 frame (size Medium, 150mm travel) - bearings feel totally smooth without the shock mounted - Fox DRCV shock - completely rebuilt as new from Fox with zero rides on it - 2010 Lyrik solo air 160mm travel - oil changed in damper about 5 rides ago and feeling awesome - 2012 SHIMANO SLX M675 brakes with ice-tech rotors - hassle free brakes with suprising power for their weight - 2008 Shimano XT cranks - classic cranks that have been absolutely flawless - 2013 Rock Shox Reverb Stealth - X-9 shifter with X-7 derailleur - 29.5" (750mm) Sunline bar, ODI Rogue grips - 2008 Bontrager Rhythm wheels - these have honestly been great wheels and lasted forever at a light weight, but the rear wheel is starting to get difficult to true. The rear is also quick-release axle, but I will include the proper frame adapters to convert the dropout to 12x142mm to eventually get a better wheel. - Blackspire sub-4 pedals This build is 32 lbs flat with a ridiculously heavy steel chainguide that is begging to be replaced by a narrow-wide ring and Zee derailleur (works with SRAM 9 speed shifter; look into it) to drop nearly a pound... but alas I am selling.

Top end SRAM build for 2012: Boxxer World Cup, Vivid Air, Code brakes, 30" Havoc DH bars, Truvativ Descendant cranks, Nukeproof Ti pedals, XO drivetrain and E13 guide... 37 lbs with DH casing tires and welter-weight tubes. Wheels: not quite so fancy, but getting the job done as consumable items. Havoc front and newer Canfield rear... both are true and the bearings are smooth. Major maintenance items are dealt with for next season. Frame bearings are the Enduro kit and only have a few rides on them. Boxxer lowers were just re-lubed before taking pictures and uppers serviced a month ago. Comes with 4 sets of unused brake pads for the excellent Code brakes. Comes with geometry adjustment center chips and the newer style rear axle that is a breeze to work with and very secure. It's currently set to the longer chainstay length and 180mm of travel on the Vivid Air, which is the best shock I've ridden yet. It's ready to rip! TR250 frames are very strong, but have weak paint. There is no base/prime coat and it wears easier than some other bikes I've had, so touch-up paint has been used on the usual wear spots. There is also a small dent on the top tube from shuttling shown in the pictures that has made no difference to an exciting and safe season.

Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
New flow trails get people into the sport and there should be plenty of room for them in most areas, but don't dumb down the trails the experienced riders were already enjoying unless people from that user group are consistently getting hurt in a certain section. It's about risk vs. reward and fine tuning the ratio so challenges are enjoyable, rather than unnecessarily risky (or boring), for the intended style (green, blue or black).

Video: Rowdy The Clown Goes Fat Biking
Just when I thought fat bikes couldn't get any more fringe, this happens! The funny part is that I totally dug it. Classic weirdness like back in the day when MTB was still underground enough to be unable to offend mainstream sensibilities.
