Hello,

I'm panning to buy Marzocchi Bomber cr coil shock for my Trek Slash 8 and i want to ask what spring rate would be suitable for weight of 175 lbs...and also what mounting hardware is needed for the new shock ?

Im 165 with gear and have a 500lb spring. Go to a trek dealer and have them order the hardware kit for the fox x2, and the associated bolt for the upper and lower (same bolt, if you go back a few pages you will see part numbers ).


In other words I still love this bike. In the spring she will be getting the new 12 speed xt group minus brakes and cranks.

Check out several spring rate calculators and find an average rate. You may want to try several different springs to get the perfect ride.

For the mounting hardware this is the part number, Get 2 of these from your local trek dealer. 540755

I've made a bike review for my 2020 Remedy 9.8. I'm a little embarrassed, but I put a lot of effort into this thing, and I think it turned out alright. Also, Porcupine Rim!

Clipped a rock today that was sticking out into the trail, cracked my rim. Time to get a replacement.

Is this part of the life time guarantee? That's awesome!

I don’t own a rim that looks that good!!!! East coast rocks are just part of life out here. Which is why I stick with alu rims.

Can you tell how is X2 acting on Slash compared to stock shock? And how did you order it, through dealer or? Thanks!

had it already in the past two years on my remedys.
its 230/60 instead of 230/57.5 but no clearance problems. on normal trails the difference isnt that much but for Park and racing its night and day, mostly on big hits and brakingbumps

What did you change from stock to get that weight? Mine is 33 #s with pedals and Maxxis tires on a size large. Stock mine was right at 31#s the day I bought it.

Just wanted to share some pictures of my new slash 8 2020.
I had a remedy for the last season, and I wanted to try a 29er this year. So far, I am very happy with it. It's even lighter than my remedy.

It's full stock, just swaped the guide R for some guide RS.

Just a quick question ... has anyone tried running 27.5 wheels on their Slash? The backend of a Remedy and Slash are essentially identical. The only real issue I can forsee would be a low BB, but if you ran the frame in the higher position ... I dunno, just wondering if anyone has played with this.
