Looking good, but the question is: Are those frames just as weak as the remedy and session?

First of all, the Session frame broke after a 50 foot canyon gap, which i doubt you or many people on Pinkbike will be doing, so before you go and say the frame is weak, i will 99% assure you that this one won't break, and even if it does break Trek has good warranties on their frames, so you can probably get it replaced.

How many Trek Sessions have broken exactly(1)? If you can find another one beside his that broke, i will be impressed and maybe convinced that the frame is weak.

And what happened to his bike could happen to anybody's bike, he just got unlucky, and Trek got it even worse because it was highly publicized as a failure on their part, but not many people will be doing jumps that big.

And why do you ask about the Remedy frame? Have you seen one of those busted via biking lately? If so i would love to see a picture of it and a video of how it happened.

So basically redefine your definition of weak to not being able to jump off a 5 foot drop, not a 50 foot gap to flatish/small downslope landing.

While I agree with you, there are numerous pictures of broken 88's (Muttley's for instance) and someone just posted pics of a cracked Remedy 9. It's the first I've seen of a broken Remedy, but I think many are ridden beyond their classification and are subject to extra forces. Trek seems to realize there is an issue with the 88 and are strengthening them for next year.

Wouldn't mind a try on the Scratch. Been pretty hard on my EX8 and it keeps ticking.

I hope that you do understand that any type of frame is able to break or snap.
Besides, I consider the session to be a weak frame since it only takes a few pebbles to dent the frame. And, yes, I've seen broken session frames, 2 of them.

Solution. This type of tape can hold a window together after surviving a bomb blast, so i'm pretty confident it can hold together for some freeride/dh
