    Remedy 9.9 Vs Stumpy Evo Carbon

    2012 Trek Remedy 9.9


    Vs

    2012 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Evo Expert Carbon

    Which would you choose?

    I think I've narrowed it down to these two for my trail bike. Found both used, I think it'll cost me about 5-600 more to get the 9.9. Both seem to do about what I'm looking for and they seem to fall in the same category. I'd use it for everything from long XC rides to true AM riding. No park riding though, I plan on getting a dedicated DH bike for that abuse.

    Should I go for the 9.9 simply because it is worth more and has higher specs? It retailed close to 9K new, as opposed to the Stumpy which was close to 6K new. Another thing I like about the 9.9 is the stealth Reverb. I'd take a Reverb any day over a Command Post, but as long as I have a dropper that works I won't complain. On the plus side for the Stumpy, it comes with a chain guide, something I'd have to buy for the 9.9.

    So which would you chose and why?

    I've had a 2010 Remedy 9.9 for several years - it's a 3x9, aluminum rear triangle - and I love it. I know it's cool to be down on Trek and dis them (I used to be a dealer - sold my shop), but it's a great bike. If you can afford the 9.9, I'd say do it for sure. I hope to grow into mine and deserve it someday! (I posted the first review of this bike, under All Mountain Full Suspension, dated 23 May 2010. The other reviews are as enthusiastic as mine.)
