What settings have you found that you like? Mine seems pretty lively but the possibilities seem endless.

I weigh 185 and run 220psi for 30% sag. I started with fox recommended settings and then slowed down high speed rebound by two clicks, sped up low speed rebound by 2 clicks. Compression was similar, 2 clicks more of high speed seems to help support the midstroke for more pop on jumps. Low speed I change often depending on trails. 4 volume spacers. I am still playing but this seems to be pretty balanced and do everything well in Colorado and bike parks. I also used a 60mm stroke instead of the 57.5.

I also just put an X2 on my remedy. The bike is much more lively than the stock Reaktive damper but maybe a little less efficient. Only a few rides in so I still have some settings to try but I like it thus far.

You can definitely feel this in wheels. When I upgraded to some dt 350 hubs I was amazed at even how long they would spin in the stand and it was immediately noticeable on the trail. Some of that speed went away when I installed the 54t ratchet over the stock 18t. This too was a noticeable difference.

This really devolved quickly. Everyone has an opinion and that is ok. If you dont like ebikes then dont buy one. If you do like ebikes, go buy one. I think the fear of trails closing due to ebikes may be a little unfounded. Here in Colorado each area is doing studies, then making a decision on ebikes specifically.

Maybe I am being the fun police here but the name calling is absurd. Let the McCauls earn their paychecks. Everyone has to make a living.

People will vote with their dollars. I have raced several of the BME races and EWS races. Aspen EWS was a pedal fest with 12 mile pavement transfers and huge climbs. Keystone BME has always been a staged DH race with one small transfer. Both were very fun but as far as stress free and easier to get through the weekend the one day multi run DH style format wins for me personally. The two day huge backcountry stuff is type 2 fun. It also takes much more time and money to be there a day early to practice and you have to be fit.

In my opinion there is room for both. Nobody is forcing you to like or participate in any style of racing.

Is that ghetto tubeless or some kind of rim strip that is overlapping the rim edge?

I agree with you in theory, BUT, manufacturers do not sell bikes that way. The overall build of a bike does make a difference for ride quality. Product managers have to make decisions and those decisions often define the personality of a bike. For the end user the component selection is important to take into account. I think this is great, next time maybe Steve will be allowed to speak!

Added a comment about product review Review - 2017 Trek Remedy 27.5 from Vital MTB Test Sessions 4/12/2017 4:24 PM

I have the alloy version of this bike and I love it. It does everything as advertised. Mine has the Pike RC and I found 3 Tokens was my magic number for keeping up with how high in the travel the rear likes to be. I agree the tires are a bit slidey for my liking. I ditched the stock post and brakes for a Crankbros Highline and Guide Ultimates, both of which have been flawless.
I am happy to read you guys mostly like the bike as well. Keep up the good work Turman and crew!
