    Looks like a sweet bike. What's up with the small single cog setup in the front? I've seen that on a lot of bikes lately.

    ^^^Nice ride, but your seat sure is low.

    As for the brakes, I've had plenty of v-brakes that stop just as well as disc. Disc won't matter much unless you want to upgrade the fork. Then it becomes a pain since most of the nice forks out there are disc only.

    Just bought this X-caliber a couple days ago. Coming from a Trek 3700 disc, quite the upgrade . Changed the seat to A WTB Valcon and pedals to some Shimano M520's.

    How are you people liking your remedy 7's? I'm pushing the limits on my 4" 29er xc bike and was wondering if the jump between 29er to a 26 is gonna make my climbing suffer. I gotta demo one I know but any of you that have gone from 29er to 26 care to share their opinions? thanks! sharp looking bikes,

    Slimp, it really depends on what you climb. Most people will notice a difference going from 29 to 26, or vice versa, only if the terrain they're riding gives them a reason to notice. Both wheel sizes are great climbers, I'd only give a small advantage to each for certain types of terrain. Certainly for climbing technical chunky stuff, going to smaller wheels will likely hurt your climbing a bit. It still may be a good tradeoff if you need more travel for the downhill.

    2012 Remedy 9.9

    I ordered a 2011 remedy 9.7, when the rear end was bad my LBS asked trek to send a whole new frame, my lucky day, Trek rep said they were out of the 2011 9.7's so he was sending me ......... yup this beautiful full carbon 2012 remedy 9.9 frame. LBS put all the components that would have been on my 9.7 on the 9.9 except with the upgrade to the Fox RP3 float rear shock. I still cant believe it. This bike rides like a dream.

    That's a beautiful frame and looks great with your 9.7 components.

    THEY ARE! My 9.9 came with the Team Issue XR4s 2.35 and they are as big a Maxxis 2.5. I tried them, but the side wall balloons out and I could feel the rear fold over on higher speed corners and off camber switches. I ran them at about 27-28 psi tubless, but they feel fine with tubes at higher PSI. I will say though, the side walls had plenty of scars from the rocky terrain I ride, but never gave out or tore.

    Got to add picks of my steed Put a new seat and shorter stem on.

    They are not a bad tire. In fact, I think they work well on loose over hard and even more sandy conditions. I have no idea about mud or wet conditions. I weigh about 200 with all my gear and normally run about 30 psi in rear and 27 in front. Like I said earlier, I could feel the tire fold a little on the rear during higher speeds in corners. A lighter rider may not experience this. They never came unbeaded and the tire held up fine. I run one on the front of my Kona bass for pump track and jumping and it works great to keep me from washing out in the front.

    The wheels are Crankbrothers Iodine 3s. Yeah, the seat was on clearance. I don't think they sold many of these cause of the orange color, but it works great on my bike. Feels GOOD and has a bigger nose for my ass on the climbs!

    So they thought the order for my bike was for this coming Monday instead of being placed this Monday :/ They have awesome CS so I wasn't upset, I just pulled the trigger on a 12' Marlin geared. I'll switch to SS sometime in the future, plus I got a few hookups for getting my stuff messed up. I only rode around the streets of Dallas and on some paved trails, all our trails are in recovery due to the weather. All in all I love it, glad I chose this over the HRD29.

    I had them change out my pedals to TSC platforms, and I'll be grabbing some BB7's and saving for a tubeless set up in the near future. First Trek/GF and I'm a big fan. I didn't notice any "quick" response when turning as mentioned about the G2 forks. But I came from a 26 so I might not be able to tell at this moment, maybe when our trails clear up.

    Here's a picture of my fish.

    Putnam: I think you would have to ride other 29ers to notice a real difference with the G2 front end of the GF. The point of G2 was to try to speed up response to try to be more like 26ers, so I doubt you will relly see a difference unless you ride some other similar 29ers from other brands.

    And yes, the weather has been pretty crappy around here (Dallas) but I can't argue with some relief from the drought over the last week. Noble sacrifice of riding to get some water on the ground around here.

    since its a ridged frame theres no super heavy susp. fork so the steering is nice and nimble.
    also it has a G2 design so i sit low in the cockpit instead of floating on top.
    and its a full chromo frame so it takes most of the light bumps with ease

    I'm a total novice when it comes to the parts - what would you guys recommend as upgrades?? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated

    First upgrade, replace those heavy slow rolling wheels. The rear Shimano hub is just about as low end as you can get, mine kept loosening on rides, I locktited the threads, torqued past recommendation, etc. Cheap hub.
    Next upgrade the rear derailluer and shifter. Even to the next grade up from your stock model.
    How do you like your pedals? That could be something to consider.
    Of course don't spend any money on upgrades unless you're feeling the need due to poor performance or bling factor.

    97 Naked Carbon Y-33.

    Stock except for the Bontrager Race X Lite carbon seat post, clamp and Maxxis Larsen TT tires.

    Anyone know where I might find rebuild kits for the Shimano Deore XT V-Brake brakes?

    Thanks for the advice! I need some more. Are the Bonties really that slow? What tyre would you suggest that also doesn't compromise grip?

    My wife's 2011 EX-8 WSD also came with Bontrager 2.2 EXs. She replaced them with WTB Bronsen 2.3s. She loves the Bronsens. Much nicer performance in the loose stuff.

    Great bike! Looks a bit like the Superfly frame. Do you know what the difference is?

    camera pics that aren't great, but my new '11 Paragon I stumbled into. A little muddy after its first ride yesterday and in a messy basement I just five minutes ago finished cleaning since I couldn't go ride this morning due to rain. Already replaced the stock seat with a WTB saddle.

    Nice "guardzilla" btw, looks better than the rubber slab but doesn't it collect lots of dirt?

    It could collect dirt but easily washed clean. For better protection, I though an airgap would be best and who wants to fool with sticky tape that will turn loose later on with or without help from water or soap. I guess if that was an issue, you could place a small piece of foam at the top (not very stylish on the clear though).

    If it cost $25 including stainless steel bolts, would you consider that to be a good price?

    Think thats a good price, overhere they will charge me 25 euros for it i think.
    Never seen it before mine came with the rubber carbonarmor, the clear one is the nicest but fairly speaking nothing on it looks best but its not for long..

    Awesome bike too! Lookin' at that rear damper, it looks like it's the same length as on my fuel ex? Could it be only the rocker or/and rear triangle are different on the remedy's frame? Or is it just my eyes fooling me
