Hi, guys!
I think it's been discussed before but now I cannot find the required info.
I have 2017 Remedy 9.8 with standard 1/2" bushings for upper and lower shock mounts.
First, is it possible? If so, what hardware do I need to mount shock with trunnion upper mount?

Thanks.

Finally pulled the trigger and ordered the 2022 remedy 8, only problem is that its getting here in March. first upgrade is most likely going to make it a mullet, does anyone here have any experience or recommend it? Cheers.

I didn't like riding the Bronson MX, but if this is your goal, get a 29er fork with 150mm travel. Not sure if the 160mm travel will clear.

I've had a 160mm 29er zeb on the front of my 2021 remedy for 600miles with no issues

I have been running my '21 remedy as a mullet for a while with a 150mm marzocchi z1 and have been really enjoying it!

The change was definitely worth it in my opinion.

I did mullet temporarily on my 19 with a 160 29er fork. It was way better for gnarly descending. I had to give the fork back to a friend but I ultimately decided I liked the lighter quicker feel of the stock setup better for everything except DH style descents. To me the front felt significantly heavier with the 29er setup.

Interesting... I would rather invest into better brakes, maybe lighter wheels or better tires.
Instead of planing to dump expensive and perfectly working fork and wheel on a bike which You haven't even ridden yet...
And looking to geo charts looks like new remedys from factory have very high BB comparing to others bikes and putting 160mm 29" fork will bump up BB by at least 10mm or more. So you will end up with positive(?) BB above the wheelbase line, like on dirtjump or bmx bike and loose stability.

So if you planing to ride just straight and over rough stuff then the way to go. But if want better high speed corners then think again.

It’s been much better documented earlier in this thread.

Is that an offset mounting on the normal deluxe?

I’ve bought an ultimate and it has standard upper and lower mounts. The existing fox shock is offset

Just bought a super deluxe ultimate to put on my 2019 remedy 9.9.

230x57.5, BUT the shock has a standard upper eyelet and a bearing lower eyelet. Any experience with converting a more standard shock to a remedy which is setup with trunnion mounting?

I called a few shops and responses have ranged from not knowing to advising me to buy a trunnion shock.

Any experience?

Have the standard reaktive deluxe shock on my 2019 remedy 8. It's ok, but could be a bit better. Was wondering if a super deluxe air or a coil shock would offer any noticeable benefit over the standard shock?

On the subject of coils, can't seem to find a company that does one in the 230x57.5mm size the bike needs, does anyone know who makes a coil shock in this size? Can only find a super deluxe coil in 230x65, not sure if this can be reduced using a spacer like the air shocks do?
I fitted a Fox DPX2 to my 2019 Remedy 8 - love it. The bike rides so much better.

Trek Remedy 2019

Was the lower mount offset on the new shock?

Thanks

My remedy back together after painting it white. Only a minimal decal under the clearcoat so I can change out the decals and colors whenever I want.

That’s a sweet looking bike, love the white w minimal markings, so clean! So is that the 29er Zeb at 160?
