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

I heard really good things about them. Can you compare the front to an assegai or magic mary?
Also which compound should one choose for max grip?

I've ridden the DHF/DHR combo for over five years now, and the Michelins have way more sidegrip and just more grip in general. The GumX compound is the grippiest/softest, and the one I use.

How is the rolling resistance between the two?

The sideknobs on the michelins are definitly more agressive so there might be a bit more resistance on hardpack. But I rarely ride hardpack here in Norway, so I'll rather have better grip!

Nice salsa 9/10. How much that build weight?

Here is my Orange Five 2017.. size XL. light as f*ck, 31,3lbs with pedals. Still waiting Progress carbon am wheelset and new saddle. Then it would be 29.5lbs with pedals Smile

my ,002 cents
on my trails hardpack with lose on top and full of rocks and using on front wheel

michelin GumX
make bike more agile than DHF or Magic Mary
aggressive, you must ride with precision!
lots of grip
very fast
lots of braking grip

cons
harsh - you must ride full on - ride slow and not good (cant realy explain in english the feeling)
not grip as ST rubber from maxxis on rocks and wet

MMary
lots of grip
rolls better than its supposed
the good versions are gravity casing for better support
good stability
lots of braking grip

cons
kinda mute the terrain
make the steering slow and not precise

so went back to my all time favorite - DHF supertacky
