    2006 Trek Remedy 66 vs. 2008 Specialized Pitch Comp

    I am looking at both of these bikes slightly used. Both are in great condition. Both are just under $1000. Which would be the smart buy and why? Thanks

    My take on the pitch

    I don't know a ton about the remedy, but I do have an "09 Pitch, which is awesome. I like the FSR suspension for the climbs and plushness under breaking/pedaling. It is a little heavy at about 34 lbs for a large, but I ride it XC and love it. I really don't think you can beat it for the price. Unless the remedy is at least 2-3 lbs lighter, I'd go with the Pitch no question.

    under 1k pitch sound pretty good.

    I hope my weight comment didn't discourage you from the Pitch, since it turns out I'm a 'tard and it actually weighs 31.5 lbs with XT cranks.
