    Thoughts about the Remedy 7 29er

    After I pay off my Superfly 100 Elite I am looking at the idea of buying the Remedy 7 29er. Lovin the orange on both bikes! A little bit more about me. At 5ft 8" I'm wondering if the bike may be to big having 140mm of travel. The guys at the lbs there really think is no point in adding a Fuel 29er having the Superfly 100 Elite. Can't wait to get the Superfly out at the Falcon Trail and Cheyenne State Park here in Colorado Springs, Co.
    I think it is cool that Tracy Mosely won the Enduro championship aboard the Remedy 29er. I am just wondering if it may be to big of a bike vs the Remedy 27.5/650b. Just got into the bigger wheel size this year, no turning back since.

    For about $600 more, I'd pick up the Remedy 8 29er.
    It's got better specs than the 7 29er (Fox fork,142X12 rear axle, SLX drivetrain and brakes).

    Eyeing that one too! I really like the color of the 7 over the 8. But the 8 does have the better spec as you said. Can the rear be converted on the 7 to the 142x12 reax axle? If so about how much? Thanks!

    I think there should be a 142x12 converting kit. ask your dealer.
