    2011 Trek Remedy - FD clamp size / Rear QR Skewer length?

    Just got a brand new 2011 Remedy frame for my kid.
    Some questions and/or need confirmation.

    Front Derailleur clamp is 36.4mm or 34.9?
    Top Clamp / Top Pull?

    I will not be using the Maxle 142mmx12mm just yet, so an older 135mm wheelset it being put on.
    So i need to buy a Quick Release ABP Rear Skewer which are longer than the average rear skewer.
    They come in various sizes but does anyone know the correct length?
    On ebay they have a 190, 210, and 215mm.
    Extra Long Mountain Bike Rear Skewer Quick Release 210mm Skewers Red 210 mm Abp | eBay

    Mountain Bike abp Extra Long 5mm Rear Skewer XL Quick Release Skewers 215mm Blk | eBay


    I would guess i need the 215mm (better longer than shorter)
    The length between the stays is 190mm i think?

    I am just trying to get an older 2x9 setup on there for now.
    Any info is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Looking at the Tech site there are differences between the model numbers.

    2011 Remedy 9.
    Spoke to Trek and still confused.
    He said 190mm on the skewer but the Maxle from contact point to the end of threads is 190mm. And i need the 135mm skewer. I am thinking 210mm or 215mm to be on the safe side. That should stick out the extra 1in or so in order for the nut to go on the end.
    He said the FD Clamp is 34.9mm but i heard 36.4mm?
    Tried tons of sites and nothing is coming up. Thats why i am here.
    Vital MTB, Pinkbike, etc.

    If it's setup for 142 now you're going to need all new abp hardware (bearings, dropouts, d-hanger) too. All that's probably about as cheap at a trek shop as gambling on getting the right stuff on ebay.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......

    Thanks for confirming the 34.9mm.
    That 192mm is too short for the 135mm skewer so i think the 210mm should do.

    Now to try and get a 2x9 setup on this. Not sure if it will work.

    The frame came with all the necessary hardware for going to 135mm except the QR Skewer.
