Hey, just picked up a '22 slash and I was looking to fit my old oneup chainguide but when sizing against the frame it looks pretty tight for clearance. Anyone running a guide on their slash if so which one?
+1 I've had the same problem, would be interested to know which guides actually fit.

Axle grinder and "old" MRP SXg guide. Did some cutting here and there to fit, but it is still tight fit. This was the cheap and dirty solution, but it seems to work, still I wouldn't encourage anybody to ruin a perfect chain guide.

I run a unite bash and chain guide on my slash 21. I had to use some washers to get the clearance correct. Couldn't use the spacers that came with the guide as it would foul the lower linkage.

Is there any difference in the bb/pivot/iscg positions between the '21 and the '22? If not I'll check out the unite one

Not sure bud. I think it's the same layout.

No change between 21 and 22 frames.

Cool, I'll check out the unite guide then, thanks for the help

I had to change to a lower bashguard only, no top guide.

Anyone know how a non knock block top cap would work on the knock block stem? I picked up a custom top cap online for my 19' Remedy but didn't realize the one that came on the stem has a slightly larger diameter than normal top caps. Anyone here run a different top cap? I don't think it should be an issue but I figured I would ask...

Top caps should be universal - we don't have any special caps for our Knock Block stems so being a smidge larger should be okay. Got any photos?

No pics at the moment but I tossed it on and it seems to be all good! I'll check back in if there are any issues

KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR UPGRADING TO A COIL ON A REMEDY (2019+):

What do I need to know for upgrading to a coil on a Remedy? Am I limited because of Trek's Thru Shaft design? I'm pretty unknowledgeable in this area... appreciate the insights.

Which coils are people rocking and spring rate?

Not sure how relevant this is to this group as it's a buysell, however I do have a '21 Remedy up for sale if anyone is looking for an upgrade!

I havent upgraded to a coil, however I did do away with the stock RS Select+ Thru Shaft that came on my '21 Remedy and upgraded to the Ultimate version. I hadn't ridden the bike before the swap, however I will say that the shock I upgraded to felt as smooth as any, even though it didn't have the thru-shaft design in it. I would say use fox's spring calculator to get a good spring rate, and you should have no problem with any limitations of not running a Thru Shaft air shock.
