Strengths:    Snappy, responsive, relatively lightweight, climbs well, silent descender.

Weaknesses:    None at this time

Bottom Line:   
I just bought this bike one week ago. I love it! I had been looking at the Santa Cruz Bronson and the Pivot Mach 6. I settled on the Trek because the price was very good and I loved the DRCV shock setup. First time riding a dropper post. Not sure how I road without one before. Climbing is slighly easier than my ALU FS bike but the downhill - this thing is a hell of a ride and it just wants to rip and shred! I am riding flats on this and will move to clipless but on my old Marin prior to giving them a shot on the new Trek. PS XT components rock!

2012 Trek Remedy 9.8 650B Reynolds Carbon Conversion

All the chatter these days is focused on 29ers and 650B rigs. This post is for those of us who own a 26er that's compatible with 650b wheels who are thinking of upgrading to the newer 27.5 platform. I had zero clearance and compliance issues on my Remedy 9.8...no valving, no shimming, no extra air i ... Read More »

Sadly, I can't test ride this bike, and no LBS in my area has them for demo. So, I'd like to ask som ... Read More »

Heckler Stolen - Now Ibis Mojo HD, Remedy 9.8 or SC Blur TR?

OK, so I went out to put a new part on my bike yesterday and it was gone... bastards! So someone lifted my Heckler out of my garage yesterday around 1PM while I WAS HERE! Pisses me off. However,... this is where it gets good. I get a new bike from insurance. Looks like I'll get between $4000 and ... Read More »

Why does the Remedy 9 have a RLC and the 9.8 have a RL fork?

I am enticed by the Remedy 9.8 due to the lighter weight, carbon front triangle, and drop post. However, I just noticed that the fork on the 9.8 is a RL, whereas the cheaper 9 has a RLC. What gives here? Is RLC an advantage with the DRCV fork? I've never had a RLC fork, but when spending the p ... Read More »
