Trek Remedy 8 Large - lots of upgrades

$3650 CAD
Tentatively putting my 2019 Remedy 8 up for sale. Size is 19.5" - Large. I'm 6ft1 and it fits me well. Used for one summer season only (bought late august 2018 in new zealand. Hardly used for the last couple of months) Well used but well looked after. I'm the first owner and a bike mechanic, so it's been looked after mechanically. I've changed a lot of components to make this bike what it should always (in my opinion) have been. Specs include: Rockshox Lyrik, travel bumped up to 170mm from 160mm Shimano M520 4-piston brakes (pretty much lower level zees, crazy powerful) with RT86 icetech rotors. Fox DPX2 Factory rear shock - this thing improves the bike tenfold. Super plush but extremely well damped. Giant 1x dropper lever - because the bontrager one sucked. Fabric Scoop saddle Rear wheel recently rebuilt with a DT Swiss EX511 rim on Sapim double butted spokes. Less than 100km on this rim. (photos don't show the new rim yet) Tyres are currently a double down aggressor rear and double down 3c minion front, running a cush core on the rear. Plenty of life left Fitted with All Mountain Style frame protection kit. DMR deathgrips - a little ratty now Front wheel is the standard bontrager line comp 30 but brand new with probably less than 100km on it - warranty replacement The standard spec includes: Sram GX eagle 12sp drivetrain (relatively new chain) Bontrager line dropper (actually pretty reliable) Bontrager bars and stem - 35mm clamp. Bars uncut at (i think) 780mm This bike rails the north shore - climbs well and awesome descender. The upgrades I've made make it a perfect north shore bike. Don't hesitate to message me with questions etc.

First Ride: RockShox's Updated Lyrik and New Deluxe Shock
I don't mind "super deluxe", it at least has some heritage behind it - I had one of the ooooold ones in a 2001 orange patriot back in the day, so the red spring is cool too. The Select, Select +, Ultimage naming convention is pretty lame though.
