That Santa Cruz is dope af too, just prefer a little longer travel for my style 8.5/10. Love the fact that you are like "hey screw new bikes, this one is the fave for me"!

This is my dream build Ronda the Remedy
...and you're like "hey screw matching..." LOL. Actually at first I hated the cockpit color combo, but after looking the whole thing over, it's more like instead of making everything black "stealth" "murdered out" cliche black, you said hey the frame and stuff is already black, let's make everything else clash and be crazy as much as possible for fun contrasting accents. A few decades ago it'd be a hit, lol didn't mean that as an insult sorry. I sort of like it, confusingly.
PS does Ronda get rowdy?

Haha dude you get me! That is EXACTLY what I did, I was pissed the only color option they had was black, and I figured if it was a black frame then I had to get every other color out there to go on it! Yellow I couldn't get on there and neither red, but other then that I think I made up for the dullness of the frame!

And HELLL YES SHE GETS ROWDY!

Do you ever get cat called by other dudes on the trail?

Haha everytime people are like, woah what is that!? Thats how I know I did a good job, when a bike as common as the remedy is unrecognizable!

Oh, I have plenty of other, newer, bikes that do specific things better, like XC or Enduro (see further back in the thread). This one is just the best all rounder (it’s the only one I’ve raced both XC and enduro on). All the others will be moved on eventually, this one won’t.

8/10 for the remedy. BLACK GRIPS MAN!

Yeah but do you ride them instead of commenting online hahaha

Not at the moment, been injured for the last 9 months (the ‘almost had to have bits amputated’ kind of injured...) but before that I was riding 100 miles a week, on/off road.

Thanks for your concern tho xx
