    Year-to-year changes on Trek Remedy?

    I know in 2008 they introduced Full Float suspension with Active Braking Pivot. At which point did they go to tapered head tubes? What else has changed? The '14-'15s looks more aggressive; did they alter geometry?

    not sure when they introduced the tapered head tube but 2014 saw the 27.5 and 29 remedy as well as a geo change and suspension bumped down. 2015 boost was introduced on the 29.

    They also beefed up the downtubes on the carbon models that were crushing/cracking around 2011. Never had a recall that I'm aware of, but they probably should have with how consistently they were breaking.

    Just did some quick research in the archive. It looks like the tapered headtube came in with the abp full floater in 2008. 142x12 started in 2011. 2013 was the final year for the 26". 2014-15 is only 27.5 or 29.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    That's good to know. The Fuel was standard with straight tube until like 2010 or something; I want tapered so I can put any fork I please on there.
