    2011 Trek Remedy 9.9 w/Hans Dampf 650B's

    So I had Kenda Nevegals on the bike before. The front was a 2.35 and the rear was a 2.10 and I didn't really like the feel of them to much so I wanted to try something different. I decided to try Schwalbe's Hans Dampf with a 2.35 up front and a 2.25 in the rear. Theses tires fit great and it doesn't look like I will have any rubbing issues. I hope I will like these better than the Kenda's

    I think you'll be super, super pleased with them if you're coming from the Nevs. Which compound did you get?

    I rode them a couple of times now and they aregsxr1000dave@msn.com great. I ended up getting the trailstar compound, they seem soft I hope they last a season

    How is the volume on the rear tire compared to the front (2.25" vs. 2.35") I am considering to convert my Liteville 301, but I want to be on the safe side clearance wise.

    The 2.25 is a tad bit smaller and will work better for a rear tire if you have a tight fit. I could have fit a 2.35 on the rear but I thought better safe than sorry. Especially at the price of these tires

    I doubt the rear will last a season. Might want to keep it as a spare for the front and run an Ardent 2.25 or something similar on the rear.

    The tires work good so if I get 1/2 a season I would be fine with that. I got 100 miles and no knobs ripped off yet or slices.

    Does a 2010 Trek Remedy Carbon frame would also fit the 650B wheel size?

    Ya they should both be the same. I think that year was a redesign so you shouldn't have any issues

    Thanks. I'm looking at an used frame and wonder if it may also fit. What would be, in your opinion, a reasonable price for one of those with the rear shock included?

    Not sure my lbs hooked me up with that bike, I walked out the door for $2500 with xt components and formula brakes. The frame probably retailed for $3000 new so I would say somewhere in the $1000 range. Those bikes are great bike for heavy duty trail riding. The only complaint I have is that the 32 150mm talas sucks nuts. I want to put a 36 160mm float asap and the nice thing about that is the 650b still fits

    Thanks. I am considering to buy one to replace by Jamis Sixfifty just for the sake of getting a carbon frame with my 650b setup (lighter bike, better feel).

    Ya my bike with pedals is high 29lbs to low 30lbs. I just got a 2014 specialized enduro comp 29er and put X01 on it which dropped a 1-2 lbs so I think that's my next investment on that bike
