    The only bike released today was the new 120 mm, 29er Fuel EX. There are four models, two carbon and two aluminum. THERE WASN'T A REMEDY RELEASED. However it is EXPECTED that Trek will release a new 29er Remedy in the next couple of days, along with potentially a new revolutionary 29er Carbon Hardtail Superfly with the Domane seat stay pivot technology. The new Fuel Ex is the demise of the Rumblefish and expect to see both the Rumblefish and the 26 version of the Fuel EX dropped from the Trek line up for next year.

    I can see the need for the Remedy, with Enduro racing taking off. JHK, Heather and Ross have been doing well.

    Can anyone provide links to these new bikes?

    Looks like badge engineering to me. Like someone else said, this is probably the death of the Rumblefish. It will sell like gangbusters now that it's call the Fuel EX.

    hmm, cool. Note that the shock says Roscoe. Been hearing about this one for a long time.

    I have to say, this is a great addition to the Rumblefish and hopefully not the end of it. I demo'd a Rumblefish a few months ago, and it wasn't bad...just too short in the travel on the rough and rocky downhill sections. It pedaled well, and would have done better with a decently light wheelset.

    I hope they pair these bikes with some light wheelsets, because my experience with 29ers thus far has been that heavy wheels = bad. Heavy big hoops make it seem like I'm pedaling through oatmeal, much more so than heavy 26" wheels. And with the slack head tube angle of the Remedy, a heavy set of tires would be a terrible day if you're doing much climbing.

    Wheel weight aside, I'm excited to demo both of them. Load those things up on the demo truck already!

    I'd say the Rumblefish is going the way of the Roscoe and the Gary Fisher name will be following with it.

    Typically neat looking Trek bikes, very interesting that they're seemingly skipping the 650 trend entirely, but disappointing that the Remedy is only 140mm travel, should have been at least 150.

    Now where's that Session 29 then?

    people still ride and buy fuel ex 26ers i don't think they are going to be pulled from the line up. They never pulled the 26" stumpjumper when the 29er version came out. I think 27.5" would be mint for trek to get into. I think thats what my next bike is going to be

    I wish I would have kept my Gary Fisher Fat Possum... all the Fisher's will become classics now that Trek is murdering them.

    Disappointed that Trek didn't release a 650b yet(if they did i would probably buy one).......have the Fuel EX 8 ,,,great bike. Not even interested in a 29er. Come on Trek, get it together.

    Woah, that's the interesting thing to me. Right now I have 3 bikes. Remedy 9.9, Superfly 100 and a Salsa El Mariachi. If Trek came out with a "few mm's on the seat tube" travel "hardtail" Superfly, paired with a Niner RDO flex seatpost, that would allow me to trade in the Sale and Superfly on that model.

    Pair that bike with a Remedy 29er and you have a 2 bike "quiver" instead of 3 bikes like I have now. Just like 1x11, addition by subtraction
