Trek Remedy 9.8 29er, frame size 18,5". Almost stock setup still, only swapped the front tire to Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pro, replaced the handlebar grips with some Odi grips and put on some XTR Trail pedals. I also replaced the original ring Absoluteblack Sram Spiderless Oval 32 teeth chainring, this one shaves of some totally useless grams from the regular separate spider and sprocket. Perfect trail bike for cities with not much downhills like Oulu, even though here you could probably get along with only 120 mm's of suspension, I wanted to have a little more to conquer all the bike parks in northern Finland. Been super happy with the bike so far, with regular tires it weights only 12,6 kg which is pretty light for a 29er with 140 mm of suspension front and rear.

 Hi and sorry for the late reply! Yes, the frame size is 18,5". I'm 183 cm in length, so in imperial unit that's about 6 feet sharp. Quite long legs, but not so long upper torso and hands. I usually pick a smaller sized bike for myself, I could totally ride a 19,5" framed version of this bike with no problems, but I like to have a more compact and flickable ride. Especially when the bike has 29" wheels. Try to get an opportunity to test the frame size before you buy, this might however not be one of the most common bikes for your local bike shop to have in stock. If you are above my height, even an centimeter or two, just go for the 19,5", it's a safe choice.
