What is your opinion on any of those bikes or is there anything else you would recommend?

Thank you

I don't see the slash getting that big. Maybe update the slash and come out with the scratch again? Haha. They absolutely have room for both in their roster.


The remedy JUST got an update for 2019. I know it's Trek but I don't see them moving that fast and killing a little wheel bike after 1 year

My best guess is that they'll make the 2021 Remedy 9.x carbon models match the remedy 8's geometry.

I thought all the remedies were on the new frame, only the slash was different carbon to alloy.

My mistake. I thought it was for both remedy and slash.

Slash is quite short now, I refer to my slash in size large as aggro trail bike not a ews weapon if anything maybe XXL option will appear giving a 1270/1280 wheelbase something along them lines without going full crazy 1300+

Most of the trends are made to sell new bikes. The difference is marginal. For me it's try and buy. I will not believe all that marketing bs.

Yes there are longer / slacker ha / steeper seat tubes out there. Will the ride with those be 200% more enjoyable ? Will you shave 10 sec of your best strava time ?

At the end of the day it is all about getting the money out of our pockets.

Unless the bike is redesign from ground up, a few degrees here and there wont change the fact that your current slash is a beast !!

Ok,I’m a bit stuck-my Lyriks are stuffed(long story) and I am replacing them but my shop only have the 42 mm offset ones available rather than the 51mm offset forks they originally came with.Has anyone experience of such a change and did it wreck/ improve the handling.Thanks

It's generally considered to be a good move - google reduced offset and I'm sure you'll find plenty of info.

I know that the Trek Enduro team runs 42 offset ( I know the Team Manager), I have a guy at the shop with one and they all love it.

Does anyone find they go through a lot of frame bearings? Mine have gone again and getting sick of getting them replaced. Don't want to invest in a bearing puller and press.

I find the evo link ones are bad but they're small

It's the main frame bearings that go on mine. The Evo link have never gone.
