Strengths:    this bike rocks i have had no problems with this bike and I've been using it as an enduro race bike. the frame cracking problem above scared me when i first read about it so i went out and checked and everything looked normal to me. the bike handles everything and eats everything up. super stiff carbon frame means amazing power transfer. the bike is a low maintenance bike and will treat you a million times better than you treat it.

Weaknesses:    the bike does have some weird size issues on some of the parts like the 95mm bb and the 7.75 x 2.5 shock eye to eye that makes it had to change parts out.

Bottom Line:   
if you want an amazing bike buy this bike. this bikes can do anything I have climbed for hours and descended for days on this bike. the carbon is super light, stiff and strong. the bike feels very nimble even in the large sizes like i ride and makes you feel stable from dragging bar in a berm or mobbing over the techiest tech. i upgraded to a lyric rc2 dh because i was doing more downhill related riding and it still pedaled great.

Strengths:    Great suspension. Really well balanced. Bulletproof wheelset tubeless ready.

Weaknesses:    Frame cracked at the front derailleur like the other reviews. Avid brakes need to bled regularly. Bontrager tires , saddle, bar and stem had to go immediatlely.

Bottom Line:   
Bummed to be without mtb only 3 months after laying down a large chunk of change to have a nice mtb.

Hoping Trek will help me out.

Strengths:    Climbs well, decends like a beast. Really nice and plush suspension. Can tackle anything from gravel roads to full on down hill.

Weaknesses:    I have had the excact same problem as the other review here; the frame broke at front derailleur attachment point after only a few rides. However, Trek did not decide to replace my frame, but offered me a "crash replacement" frame, but this will cost me 58% of new bike price.

Bottom Line:   
Great ride, but DO NOT BUY! This could happen to any carbon frame Trek Remedy. Be warned!

Strengths:    Everything. but esp. climbing (which surprised me because it's a pretty beefy bike). LOVE this bike.

Weaknesses:    Remedy 9.7 frame broke at front derailleur attachment point after only a few rides. Manufacturing flaw? The spec Bontrager tires were reported to be crap, but I didn't ever try them.

Bottom Line:   
My warranty experience with Trek and Calgary Cycle was very good. Due to a shortage of replacement 9.7 frames in the summer of 2012, Trek provided a 9.9 frame at no cost to me. I'm sorry to have missed riding the Remedy during part of the prime summer weather, but I am very impressed with the replacement frame.

Duration Product Used:   2 months

Purchased At:   Calgary Cycle

Similar Products Used:   last bike was a 2004 Blur, so probably too old for comparison

Bike Setup:   stock except swapped out tires for Maxxis Ignitors and went tubeless. And after warranty replacement, now have a 9.9 frame.

2011 Trek Remedy 7 (17.5" virtual / 16.5" actual) for 5'9" 170lb guy

Greetings all - looking at a lightly used Remedy 7 in their 17.5 virtual size. Minor cosmetic scratches here & there, but components look good and the bike's being sold through a shop/consignment deal where the shop's giving it a solid checkout before sale. Their price is $1500 which seems OK to m ... Read More »

So I demo'd a Nomad on the weekend... I also got an email from Trek saying Canada won't see the Remedy until June... Do I wait until June for the Remedy (if only to try it and hate it) or do I just buy the Nomad? NOMAD: [url]http://www.santacruzmtb.com/nomad/index.php?builder=1[/url] REM ... Read More »
