    Remedy 29er???

    Trek Remedy 29er for 2014? 2015?

    Check this out: Rock Shox DLC(?) Forks Spotted on Possible Trek Long Travel 29er Prototype, more - Bike Rumor

    Maybe the new Specialized Enduro 29er just encouraged Trek guys to go with a 29er Remedy???

    For now, Trek longest travel 29er is the Rumblefish, 120mm F/R which is 30mm shorter than the Enduro 29er (150mm F/155 mm R).
    BTW, The Enduro 29er chainstays are 5mm shorter than the Remedy's...

    Did anyone hear anything about an upcoming Remedy 29er???

    Thanks, Mo.

    My LBS said something might be in the works. I talked to Karl the Midwest Trek rep and he wouldn't say much but he said they won't put out a product until they can do it right. He said the main problem with the long travel 29er, in the much anticipated roscoes case anyway, was that you were so high up on the bike it felt like a bike on stilts. With all that said I pray Trek can pull this off because if they can I will have to start thinking of a reason to add another bike to my arsenal.

    Well, Specialized sure dropped a bomb into the 29er bike market with the Enduro 29er.

    They've managed to do what no other bike Manufacturer did:
    1. figure out how to design a 150mm AM 29er bike.
    2. building the bike and start selling it next month.

    Now, I belive that some of the big bike Manufacturer (Trek, Giant, ect.) will have no choice but to follow Specialized and have a long travel 29er of their own!

    It looks like a pike and the pike is available with 160mm travel. Really hope it's a scratch / slash 29er !

    Trek is already using a similar linkage setup to the fuel/remedy/slash on the new Lush 29er.

    It is a redesigned rumble fish. I was told by a Trek dealer that they are going to use the same type suspension the remedys has and also make one in carbon.

    Will Trek phase out the Remedy 26 in favour of an all-29er lineup?

    If that'll be the case, I guess my 2013 Remedy 7 is the last of the 26 breed.

    TWENTY SIX FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I gots short legs, hence not much of a 29er fan unless it's a custom made 29er HT hehehehe)

    i agree that its cool that Tracey wins on it... awesome... but:

    This is coincidence much more than grand strategy. No press release, no info on consumer site, no geometry specs mentioned anywhere... Kinda sad.

    I really need to know whether I should dump my blinged out 26er carbon remedy now for the Remedy 29er.

    Press release is May 30th I think. They want the dealers to have them on the floor so once the press release hits, you can walk into the shop and see one.

    Yep, my dealer invited us to see it on the 21st. I didn't make it by until today.

    Want.

    I may not have the best of everything, but I have the best everything that matters.

    My LBS has a Fuel EX7 29er on their floor... about 6 months too late for me to care about it though. I would have LOVED to have the option to pit the Fuel against my Camber back in December.
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    Disappointed, sorry Trek , Spesh got the drop on you here.
    Press release says 3 bikes to be announced on 30th. 3rd one still a secret but something very special and not 650b.

    Lets hope it is a slash /scratch 29er with a full 160mm travel
