But Trek says... Warrantied For Life
Each Trek carries a simple promise: We’ll take care of you and do what's right. We build our bikes to last, subjecting them to brutal punishment in the world's toughest test lab. And we back every bike with the best lifetime warranty in the business, all the way back to our very first frames built in 1976.


At this point I’m surprised when anyone is surprised when companies deny warranties. The whole warranty system is based on good will gestures unless you’re willing to sue to enforce it. With the bike market the way it is, companies don’t have much reason to be generous. A bike they warranty is a bike they can’t sell, when they’re already a year or more out of stock.

Will a 2019 Slash chainstay fit onto the 2016? If so, I have a (green) carbon one sitting in my box of parts. Easy enough to sand down and paint matte black.

I think the 2016 was the last year of the 27.5 slash. 2017 was the new model year of I am remembering correctly.

Time for a deal on a Remedy frame and swap your parts over. A new rear wheel and youd be mostly good to got I think.

Seems to me Trek still has some stays -- 2014 model to be exact. I think they're the same, but if anyone else can chime in that would be awesome. This is what I'm seeing.

Just got the bike back from the shop. Got a replacement chain stay warrantied. Minus the orange accent but happy I didn't have to fork over the $3-400 bucks for it. The pivot linkage got warped last year so it is starting to become a franken-bike.

Wow that's awesome! tup

To '21 Slash 8 owners (who upgraded their tires already), any recommendations for better tires? did you get the same width for front (2.6) and rear (2.4)? My stock front got punctured and I think the rear sucks at grip, so looking to replacing them both. TIA.
