    Issue with Trek Remedy 66- would like your opinion

    Hey. I have couple questions. I have an 06 Trek remedy 66. I just bought it used, and there's a strange issue. The swing arm touches the bb shell( I have an outboard bb shell- came stock with the bike). It only touches on the non-drive side. Everything is stock including the shock.
    My second question is Trek's warranty transferable?
    Thanks a lot for the help!

    Not sure about the swing arm touching the bb shell (which sounds kinda fishy), but I know that Trek's warranty is NON-transferable. However, I have heard stories of people bringing Trek bikes in with issues to different shops and having the warranty honored. I'm NOT AT ALL saying that's what you should do, but that's just what I've heard. If anything, they (Trek) might extend to you a discounted price for a new frame. Either way, I'd take it to your LBS and see what they say-they'll of course know best.

    Thanks for replying ! Its the swing arm that rests against the BB outer cup- it just damaging the swing arm. I can still ride with it but I don't want to cause more damage.
    Could it be the shock that somehow the stroke becomes bigger /more length than it should have?

    Unbolt the shock from the frame and measure it. I had an old Remedy and it never did that.

    It should measure 200mm from the centre of one eyelet to the other. If it's longer than that's the problem.

    Hi. Thanks for your answer. It measures 7" and 7/8" of an inch. Tiny bit larger than 200mm, and that's when compressed to about 120 psi. By the way, its the swinger 3 way air.
