still. the sx weight a ton. the remedy is lightweight, and still packs 6 inches of bottomless travel cause of the freefloat rear end. plus its a strong enough frame for freeride, while still rippin going up hills. best bike ever. especially since it is so light

sxt isnt as heavy as you think. its 33-36 pounds. i would rather have that than a 30 pound bike for FR that would be lighter and more prone to snapping

true the remedy is lighter which normally means more prone to snapping... but... i will be sincerely surprized if anyone who is riding below the level of the pro FRers can actually pull off snapping a that frame. if u arent dropping 25-30 feet i dont think it will be a problem... and it sounds like u are looking to get only a frame so u could totally build it up with some sick FR parts. it would turn out to be a sweet bike. they r hard to find though... i got one, but only cause i work at a shop. so i agree it is dificult to find them.

indeed that will be a sick set up. the remedy is meant for ppl who have peddling as a priority not a "oh this is cool i might be able to peddle up" mentality. also having a bike that does that really takes away from FR. u can look at a bike in 3 ways to tell how good it is.

1. price
2. strength
3. quality

the bike that is going to be the best has all 3 of those qualities. like a demo 8II is gonna be amazing on the quality and strength, but not so great on the price. the remedy would be good on the quality, price, but not the strength for what you want to do. and the other guy suggested that you can put a FR build kit on, but then that takes away from weight and adds strength; but completely takes away from the idea that the remedy is a peddle-friendly bike. now the sxt is good in all 3, maybe a little heavy for peddling (only if your a pussy and care about that in a FR bike):P

hope this helped
