    I've never been too impressed with the stiffness of the Fox 32 forks (damping was never that great either). I wouldn't go with anything less than the 34mm 160 on the Remedy and would probably opt for the 36mm 160 if it were me. Depends on your riding style and what type of terrain you normally ride.

    I have the Fox 36 160mm front fork on my all mt bike but ride it aggressively. If you want to ride the Remedy more as a xc bike the 32's are fine but with the minimal weight difference it isn't worth it. ymmv

    I have a newer 32 on my xcountry bike and love the float but if you plan to fully put the am bike through its paces a 36 would be my recommendation.

    The 32 is weak for AM riding. Feels like the front wheel is gonna fall off. I'm disappointed about the slash and enduro coming with 34's. Too flexible for a real AM ride. 36 all the way.

    If you're concerned about weight, go on a diet. The 34 is only 20% stiffer than the 32 and in my book, that's not stiff enough.

    I wouldn't worry about the weight unless you do a ton of smooth climbing or XC racing....( in which case you have the wrong bike). The 36mm Float forks are pretty light for how stiff they are.

    If you're worried about messing up the geometry you can have the 36 lowered to 150mm travel I believe, but I wouldn't do that. I think the Remedy could use the extra slackness the taller fork will create.

    I just got a Float 36 160 RC2 for my ’12 Remedy 9.8 and it works awesome! Plenty stiff, plush, adjustable way better than the 32 DRCV that comes on the bike.

    Hello,but they say that the fox 36 does not give 160 mm travel, on the other hand the fox 32 drcv if it gives them 150 mm, is this true?

    Yes, my new Float 36 160 RC2 has 160mm of travel. 10mm more than the 32 150 DRCV that came on the bike.

    I've had Fox 36 Talas on my Remedy since new and love it. It's not a race bike but I enjoyed riding it in the Test of Metal in 2009 and 2010. You'll never notice the difference in weight but you'll aways notice the difference in performance.

    Go for the 36. The gain in stiffness is more significant by far than the weight difference.

    the drcv system uses 100% of 150 mm of travel but fox 36 160 mm does not use 100% travel,This is what they say

    OK look put fox float 34 160 mm
    This year, bottles of 36 with axis 20 mm single carrying the slash 7 with rock shock lyrick, slash 8 and 9 mounted fox 34,even santa cruz nomad which is more for enduro-freeride used botlles 34,less weight identic travel, and perhaps somewhat less rigid.

    All I know is that when I landed a hi speed drop a little heavy in the front wheel it used all the travel. Coming from the non adjustability of the DRCV I didn't want the 34 because it had the CTD and I wanted the adjustability of the RC2. I'll sacrifice some weight to be able to adjust the fork the way I want lt.

    CTD is very simple to use, rc2 can adjust better if you know,If you use the entire route of the drcv, maybe don't carry the pressure of air on your weight, or maybe need fork 180 mm

    32 is for lightweight, easy riding only. It has no business being on a Remedy. 34 is a better match.

    although the added stiffness would be an advantage over the weight gain

    The rigidity of the 34 over the 32 is very noticeable. How will Trek know which fork you were running if your frame breaks? You send the frame back, not the whole bike. Besides, Treks break at the bottom bracket, not at the head tube.

    Get a 34 x 150 if you are concerned. The 34 makes more difference than the extra 10mm travel.

    I think what he is saying is that 20% increase in rigidity over something that is not that rigid may not really mean anything.

    The real question is how much more rigid is the 36, as compared to the 32 and 34? I also wonder how stiff the 34 would be with a 20mm axle as well.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    If it is true they may not know that fork He wore, you can adjust the fork 34 160mm to 150 mm??

    It was exactly what meant me, 20% more rigidity is little. That with regard to the 36 is not known
    how much more rigid is 32, the question is ¿¿because now even the trek slash 2013 mounted 34??and santa cruz nomad moented 34 this year.Maybe have given that the 34 is the perfect?

    Personally I think you should just get the 36 if you are worried about the frame warranty issue you can just get it stepped down to 150mm. For me going from the 32 to 36 was a huge improvement and as I said you get the adjustably of the RC2 as apposed to the unadjustable CTD.

    It's all bout riding style & "fit".

    There is no real downside to either fork so here's what I've discovered from my Treks.
    Fox 32 150mm with Thru Axel should be plenty rigid regardless of ride style if you are under 180 lbs. If you are over 185 lbs and you rive VERY aggressively you may consider the 34.

    Trek designed the Remedy to be able to handle anything AM related and the stock setups have proven to be amazingly dialed. Having said that, I'm all for customization and the best bike is the one that "fits" your body type and riding style to best.
    If you have not already purchased the Remedy 9 and you are leaning toward the 34 version fork, you are probably better suited for a Slash. If you already own the Remedy frame the go with your gut and build the bike that "fits" you & your ride style.

    I do not have a Slash but I test rode it at one of the Trek Demo Days, it was pretty amazing and with the 2x9/bash ring & chain guide it was still super light.

    These bikes I own:
    My AM bike is a Remedy with the stock 150mm Fox 32 & I run a 2x10 w bash ring (no chain guide).
    My FR bike is a Scratch with a Fox 36 VAN 160mm & I run a 1x9 with e-thirteen chain guide & bash guard (I have both Fox DHX 5.0 coil & a Float RP23 for the rear that I swap out depending on where I'm riding my FR bike).
    My DH bike is a Session 8 (its a beast)

    I think that will put the fork fox talas 34 160mm ,because they may not know that fork
    wore in the frame.

    depends on the offer that is, buy the fox 32 or 34, too bad you can not buy it in the United States because this more
    cheap
