Put a Super Deluxe Coil Select+ off of a Megatower on my Remedy. It's like a whole new bike on the downhill and still climbs decent!

How did you deal with the lower bearing eyelet on the shock?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a slash 2014-2016 chainstay or a full carbon rear end for the same bike.

Can somebody help me??

Thanks for answers

Hey guys I have a slash 2018 9.9 xl.
I was wondering how you guys solved the issue of the slack seat tube.
I had the same problem with an old stumpjumper years back, I bought a fzik saddle specific with long rails.
Is it going to ruin the dropper post bending it forward?

Can anyone think of a reasonable explanation for why the 2020 Remedy 9.9 is 1.5lbs heavier than the 2019 Remedy 9.9?

That seems absolutely ridiculous to me...

It's not that bad IMO

You use it in high position?

Though I can't speak for the dropper post itself and any additional stain due to a longer saddle, I know my SQ Lab saddle is designed with a longer nose. I can get forward on the saddle on steep climbs, and that's with the saddle mounted in a neutral position on the dropper.

Yes. High position, seat forward on the rails and I can climb anything. It's still plenty slack for even the steepest of descents, and I get less pedal strikes.

The "effective" angle isn't terrible because the seat tube itself is oriented farther forward on the bike to start with compared to other bikes. So even though it is a slacker angle, where your body weight ends up being positioned relative to the bike as a whole isn't bad at all. I personally haven't had nearly the issues climbing that I have had in the past with other bikes.

Sometimes weight scales have discrepancies, but in this case, it is related to component materials as the frame is the same.

2020 Trek Remedy 8 Chromag Edition
New bike day! It's just been invisiframed and I can't wait to ride!

Didn't think the embargo on the new bikes had been lifted let alone orders placed!

It's an amazing looking bike though!
