I was able to find a 230 x 60 Super Deluxe RTR for a killer deal. So far I am loving it. The initial stroke and sensitivity is well worth the upgrade. The chunk and high speed chunder is significantly smoother with square edge hits leaving less of a hung up feel of harshness. My main trails are filled with loose rock and a bit of dust over hard pack. There is a clearance issue with the preload nut. I have to run it a quarter turn more or less so it does not contact the seat tube bend(right at the rocker pivot) at full extension.

My main issues with the Thru-Shaft are with performance inconsistency and continual issues with build quality. On longer descents and elevation change the shock would get wallowy and even spiky on rougher trails. There wasn't enough external adjustments for me to find sweet spots either. Since the first week I had the bike the shock has been through warranty and rebuild more than I would want from a $600 shock. First the damper got aerated then after that I had the thru shaft completely separate from piston causing a hard clunk on compression.

Spoke lengths are on the tech site. If you wanna post DS/NDS and F/R I can tell you...

Edit: You mean literally what spoke, I'm realizing. Same answer other than I can tell you part number not length. They're Bontrager branded but its pretty safe to assume DT I would think

What dropper post is everyone running on their Remedy? I'd like something with more drop than the stock 125mm on my 18.5" and was wondering what 150/170mm posts can be run slammed in the frame

What year? I'm riding the 2020 19.5 and it comes with a 170mm bontrager(?)stock. Might be able to fit a 180mm. My 2017 could easily fit a 150, maybe a 170.

I have an 18.5 2020 Remedy with a oneup dropper v1 150mm in it. It can be slammed into the frame. I'm sure the v2 droppers have an even lower insertion height, so you might even be able to slam a longer dropper than 150mm into the frame?

It's a 2018. Was it a Bontrger post you had in your 2017?

In case anyone is riding an XL, I am running the latest Highline 170 and if I inserted completely there would be about 32mm showing.
