    Man, thats quite a lot of changes. What did that cost you to make those upgrades? (If you don't mind me asking)...?

    Somebody mentioned selling a Remedy to get Fuel EX... wondering why? I'm actually considering those two as well for my next purchase. Both look like great bikes.

    Sweet ride, nice build! Those pedals though, they are as about out of place as mud flaps on my Ferrari Spider. Some nice XTR SPDs would finish the package up real nice! Just saying...

    Which "Trek" model is closely related to the Specialized Hardrock?

    I would think the Marlin and maybe the Mamba? Similar to the Rockhopper and Rockhopper Comp 29?

    My 2011 Trek Gary Fisher Wahoo is a little closer to the Specialized Rockhopper, I was looking at the Specialized Hardrock myself, but all my LBS's in my area said if I could afford hydraulic disc brakes do it, and the Wahoo/ Trek 4300 were cheaper with better parts (100 mm fork, hyrdraulic disc) so that sealed the deal on the buy, and I love my Wahoo. Had family in town so haven't been out on the trails as much as I'd like the last 2 weeks, but I am going to hit them hard!

    The new 2012 Mamba is pretty nice, in the $900-$1000 range, does that match the Hardrock price points?

    This would probably do better as it's own thread. It's not really polite to hijack a thread.

    I have finally upgraded my bike to a 1 x 10 (28t front chainring for our Florida trails) using a Widgit chainring / bashguard / chain-guide assembly. Last upgrade... I hope.
    P.S.
    Bought the Widgit in black and painted it gold. Expensive, but simple. No guides to adjust, Just had to very slightly grind the inside of it and very slightly grind the weld on my chainstay to get the clearance. Working great now.

    Polished Trek Fuel EX8

    Hey boys and girls...

    Just finished rebuilding a Trek EX8. Got the bike cheap... paint was trashed. Decided to strip the bike down and polish the frame. Rebuilt from the ground up with lots of new parts... looks good, rides even better.

    Man, a lot of these pictures you all are using the Shimano SPD pedals. Anyone here using Crank Brothers Eggbeaters, wondering how they look on these fine Trek bikes.

    only saw one other Trek Fuel 70 in this thread... so im not sure if thats agood or bad.. i got mine for free. 2005-06 model.. pretty much stock as far as i know.. definately want a more comfy saddle and need a riser handlebar since this frame is just a little to small for me... but its my first mountain bike.. and i really like it.. needs some fine tuning on the deraileurs then itll run perfect... but so far it hasnt seen a trail with me.. just street riding and some playing in yard till i feel im ready to head down the trails

    Hey guys,
    Can someone with an '10 or '11 Remedy do me a favor and measure the EVO link main pivot( where it bolts to the seat tube). A outer edge to outer edge measure would be great.
    I have an '08 Remedy and am trying to use a new DRCV shock. This requires a newer EVO link and I'm trying to verify this will work if I can get the swing arm. Trek people tell me it can't be done(probably so I buy new bikes), but I met a guy that did this to his Fuel EX so I want to find out if it will work for the Remedy. I've got a new DRCV shock sitting on my table...needs to be used!
    My measure is 70mm at the stated point(may be off a tad). So far all other measures seem the same minus where the shock connects...is wider due to the larger canister.
    Thanks for the help!

    Actually have posted elsewhere and received no response about what I'm trying to do--I assume it gets lost in the shuffle. And it's obvious there are plenty of Remedy owners stopping by this thread and I figured I could get some brotherly love/help by one person taking 30 seconds to post the measurement...my question would then be answered and my "hijacking" would be done and the posts could even be deleted...doesn't seem like a huge deal.

    Been a while since i got a bike shot up, just got my new brakes on (XT) to replace the Promax Hornet. HUGE upgrade imo. Also, got some more blue bits to go with my Orange and Blue theme (Yes, im a Gator). Lots of upgrades, only thing from original bike is Frame, fork and the FD/RD. Weighed in at 24.68lbs. Really love this bike.
