Trek Remedy 8

$1900 USD
For sale is my 2017 Trek Remedy 8. I bought this bike brand new from a Trek dealer in California. Getting out of mountain biking and haven't been riding so it's time to let it go. The rear brake lever is slightly bent from shipping but is barley noticeable when riding. Aside from the brake lever and a few cosmetic points the bike is in great condition. Probably has less than 50 hours of riding on it. Still has half of the life of the stock tires left for reference. I would prefer local pickup but if you pay for shipping and labor for a shop to pack the bike I will ship it. Always cleaned and lubed the drivetrain every few rides. Shifts perfect and is mechanically sound and ready to be ridden. Here are the specs: Frame: Aluminum 19.5" (fits me perfect at 5'10") Shock: RockShox Deluxe RT3, RE:aktiv 3-position damper, tuned by Trek Suspension Lab, 230x57.5mm Fork: RockShox Pike RC, Solo Air, Charger Damper, E2 tapered steerer, Boost110, 150mm travel Wheels: Bontrager Duster Elite, Tubeless Ready, Boost110 front, Boost148 rear Tires: Bontrager XR4 Expert, Tubeless Ready, Inner Strength sidewalls, aramid bead, 27.5x2.40" (currently set up tubeless) Shifter: SRAM GX, 11 speed Rear derailleur: SRAM GX, Roller Bearing Clutch Crank: SRAM GX 1000, 32T X-Sync Chain: SRAM PC 1130 Cassette: SRAM XG-1150, 10-42, 11 speed Saddle: Bontrager Kovee Elite Ti rails Seatpost: KS eThirty Integra, remote lever, 2-bolt head, 31.6mm, zero offset, internal routing 125mm travel Seatpost lever: Raceface Turbine Handlebar: Bontrager Line, 35mm, 27.5mm rise, 780 width Grips: ODI Rouge lock on Stem: Bontrager Line, Knock Block, 35mm, 0 degree Headset: Knock Block Integrated, cartridge bearing, sealed, 1-1/8" top, 1.5" bottom Brakeset: Shimano Deore hydraulic disc w/ upgraded Kool Stop brake pads Rotors: 203mm/180mm rear Shimano Ice Tech 2 piece Pedals: Orgin8 Vex nylon w/ replaceable metal pins and sealed bearings Chain guide: MRP SXg Alloy

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
I tell myself the reason I don't buy carbon is because aluminum is more sustainable... nothing to do with the price.

Emil Johansson's Trek Ticket S - Bike Check
@dannyboybiker: you're right. I was comparing it to how the shock mounts on the new slash but this one is on the seat tube so it still looks like a full floater from far away. Interesting. This is why I love slopstyle bike checks; all the fine details.

Emil Johansson's Trek Ticket S - Bike Check
Rheeder's bike is still a full floater. The Ticket S frame with the full floater is still available on Trek's consumer website although if they continue to produce it, I think it would make sense to ditch the full floater to gain stiffness especially since these guys run max air pressure in their shocks so i don't think they care too much about how it feels just as long as it takes the edge of harsh landings.

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
That a good point about the fork and tires. Has there been a official press release of the 29er Boxxer?

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
I just don't understand why all the company's are announcing these bikes all at once. It's like they all started developing these bikes at the same time and all agreed that this would be the year they started running them out in the open. Trek has had a 29er Session prototype for like almost 10 years I'm pretty sure but yet no one ever really paid much attention untill this year after Santa Cruz released their new 29er V10 and then it seems like a new company every week is announcing a 29er dh bike. Obviously it's the time to do it because it's the beginning of the racing season but why so many company's in one year? It's not like you can design a whole bike in a month after Santa Cruz announced there bike.

Trek Slash 9.9 29 RSL - Review
I have a 2017 Remedy and I'm not big on the knock block but it is what it is. I honestly only notice it when I'm pushing it around the shop and want to turn around haha I haven't noticed it when riding.

Trek's Prototype DH Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2016
I don't understand why they felt the need to make the new remedy have a straight down tube with knock block but if this is supposedly the stiffest frame and has a tripple crown fork where knock block is not necessary then why don't they have a straight down tube??
