Guys... a 9.10 would just be a 9.1 and not as good as a 9.7...

How about "Slash 10?"

IS there a more "enduro" name possible than the "Slash X"?

Trek, if you're reading, you owe evildos some royalties when this happens

It appears so

How was it identified to be bad besides he chain slap?
I work as a mechanic, so I noticed the clutch started to loose tension. Comparing it to a brand new derailleur it was clear something was wrong.

I've been through 2 now on my '17 Remedy, they upgraded me to an X1 derailleur and the clutch seems to have gone sloppy again. It's a good job SRAM made it so you can't re-tighten the clutch isn't it....

My clutch on my '17 Remedy just went out. Had my local shop replace it for $150 plus labor. Are you telling me this could have been a warranty issue?

Nah it wasn't. Somewhere else her on PB was a thread about it. SRAM decided at some point to keep people from messing with the clutch even though it would be an easy twist of a screw to fix it after it got loose. Just another way to improve sales numbers for rear mechs I guess.

Advantage to going Shimano: The clutches are fully adjustable and serviceable so when they lose tension, you just open it, re-grease it and tighten it.

Yeah the shop managed to warranty it. In the first week, the chain had slapped the stay so much that it barely has any paint on it now. I tried to get a new chainstay too but they wouldn't warranty that. ☹️ Learnt my lesson and will buy Shimano in the future

I’m wanting to try and warranty my der. But I don’t know how long I’ll have the bike for. What did you say in the warranty claim?

Hi there guys, just wanting some advice on sizing for a 2019 trek slash 8. I'm just over 6 foot and wanting to buy the bike while it's on sale. The only size available is 19.5. I'm wondering if this would ok but I'm confused since I've seen on multiple forums people saying that it's too small for them or it fits them perfectly.
Many thanks

Might be a bit small. I’m 5 7 and ride a large 19.5. I have abnormally long arms though. Still you might want the next size up.
