Hey there y’all, I’m looking at a 2016 slash 8 or a 2015 slash 7. Are they great bikes? I’m a downhill lover but want to keep it tame and would like to do some climbing as well.

pretty sure the 2016 slash is the same as the current remedy but heavier.

I see. So it’s the same frame design? The old remedy’s only have like 140mm travel on the frame.

it's not the same design, but same travel and wheelsize vs remedy 2017+ but heavier.

Done a few upgrades from stock but it’s safe to say I’m quite happy with it

Hey guys.
I have 2017 remedy with RockShox Deluxe RT3 RE:aktiv shock, recently it started to rebound very fast, even on the slowest rebound setting. Open/pedal/lock dial seems not working as well. Am I be able to get away with just damper service or is it a bigger problem?

Thanks.

Sounds like just the damper

2016 Slash is 160mm front & 160mm rear with 65 degree head-tube angle, last year the Slash was a 27.5” wheel, and is NOT-boost spacing.

2017 Remedy has almost all the same #s as the 2016 Slash except it is 150mm of rear travel, No longer has the option to run 2x drivetrain, and IS-boost spacing.

In 2017 Trek moved to “making less frames” so if you want a 27.5 wheel its the Remedy & if you want a 29” wheel its the Slash, front and rear travel are the same, knock block is introduced, Remedy has Full Floater suspension, Slash is a frame mounted rear shock.

On the same boat, but will look for a demo first.
