    I just bought a 2015 Remedy9 29 here in Australia and I will get it in mid August. It is a special order in a 23 inch frame. We had the dealer demmo days earlier in the week.

    I was told that the 2015 Trek Xcaliber 7 is coming out next month and reading the specs its similar to the 2014 X8. I am leaning toward this bike. The colors are black,white,green which I like and a horrible blue,yellow pinkish color. I wish they would come out with a matte black or gray color but no.

    That they won't do. The Sawyer was sort of a two year special edition after a decade of building 29ers.

    Carbon 23", as in the XXL ? Can you confirm if seat tube is actual 23" ? On some of Trek's other models, the seat tube is shorter than the size 'they call it'
    My Superfly 9.9 XXL is a true 23" and if the Remedy Carbon is same, I'm sold….money in hand. What was the cost ? Thanks

    So in terms of 29ers they released: Remedy Carbon, Superfly SS, 920 (More of a light duty trail/dirt road bike), and plenty of bright colour options.

    My 2015 Remedy is in the shop ready to be picked up tomorrow after work.
    I went down to see it and it looks better than the photos. Can't wait to take it for a ride.

    If it fits your budget, you like how it rides, and it fits you, then it is the best bike for under $1000.

    Did they make any changes to the frame size or geometry between the 14 and 15 models? I can't find the geometry for the 14s.

    Not that I see.
    The Superfly got a change last year to excellent geo with a tapered head tube the X-Cal lacks.
    435 vs 445mm chainstays.
    58 vs 53mm bb drop.
    1116 vs 1128mm wheelbase on an 18.5.

    doesn't look like it. the only geo change was 2013-2014 when the .5" frame sizes were started

    just looked at Trek Bicycle and i'm not sure about some of these new 1987 colors they have going on. the superfly 6 looks like a good value HT though. superfly 5 is a disgrace. not sure why it's even there. fork alone is worth the msrp price increase between the two and that's not counting the rest of the parts.

    i like a lot of the 2014 colors more honestly, superfly 6 is pretty sick though. if i hadn't gotten a really good deal on a niner emd last week for a winter hardtail i'd be getting the SF6

    alloy FS superfly is now on 12x142, can't remember if it was in 2014, know it wasn't in 2013

    x-cal 8 at least still looks fairly decent, to the guy asking about x-cals, don't get a 7, get the 8, the 8 has deore level sram x5 gear and a 32mm fork. last year the x-cal 8 was on sale for 849-899 a lot.

    Yeah I know, but you might run into a 2014 Superfly this weekend at 35% off. Check all the dealers within driving distance.

    Is it true that they axed the Stache 6, Remedy 7, and the Gary Fisher name?

    I can tell you that they did axe the Stache 6. I saw they made a lot of changes to the components on their 2015 line up of bikes. I have a 2014 Stache 8, and wouldn't change it for the 2015 at all.

    I also noticed they got rid of the X-Cal 4 and 5 but have more Marlin models. You are right, some of those "new" colors are a little odd

    Already ordered an XCal 8. Not a lot near me, have to go pretty far to find other dealers.

    I ask about the frame because the 2015 uses 650b wheels and was wondering if theoretically when I upgrade the wheelset if I could interchange 650b.

    I was thinking they would have put a tapered head tube on the new X-Cals but , it didn't happen. I do like the new colors for 2015 on most of the bikes.

    Looks like the 650b wheels are only on the two smaller frame sizes, 29" on the larger sizes. My guess is you would want/need to maintain the wheel size that comes on the bike.

    I actually like the new colors overall as well. The two bikes on my radar are the Superfly 9.6 and the Stache 7.
