    Trek's new marketing/products

    Trek release new suspension damping and carbon Remedy *UPDATED* | Spoke Magazine

    New (for them) proprietary shock design.
    New 148mm rear axle. (because 142 and 150 just didn't cut it?)

    I do have to say though, their carbon remedy frame is super light.

    Regressive damping, oh boy, this one's gonna be fun. I foresee a lot of confused riders who don't know how to make it work, especially combined with the abomination that is CTD.

    I should also note that it's not some new or revolutionary feature, any shock or fork with a dished piston can be setup this way with the right shims. I can setup my Manitou with regressive damping in about 20 minutes with a stack of shims. Dished piston, preload the shims, close down the low speed oil bypass. Congratulations, you now have regressive damping. And this allegedly took Trek, Fox, and Penske 5 years to develop?

    Some of their staff apparently missed the memo about the new cover letters for the TPS reports, which in turn severely delayed development time.
