    Trek Remedy 8 29er + 150mm fork

    Posted this on 29er bikes forum too.

    A friend of mine just ordered Trek Remedy 8 29er.
    He wants to replace the original 140mm Fox 34 Float with a 150mm RS Pike.

    Anyone tried this setup?
    Any geo/handling issues due to a 150mm instead of 140?

    Thx, Mo.

    Curious, if your friend wanted to swap the fork immediately, why not get a slash or something else with a bit more travel?

    There's a thread on MTBR on how to raise the Fox 34 to 150-155mm. I had a lot of issues with the stock fork so I sent it in to Fox and told them I wasn't happy with it at all. They installed the 2014 FIT cartridge damper for $75 after some fuss, and it came back pretty damn good. I just rode a 2014 Enduro for 8 hours over the weekend with the Pike up front and although I didn't get a lot of time playing with a shock pump on them, I wasn't blown away with it like I thought I would be. There seems to be less stiction on the Pike, but the overall damper performance wasn't really better than the 2014 tuned FIT damper. I am probably just going to raise my Float to 150mm and not cough up $1k for a Pike. I think that and a PUSH kit for the rear will make this bike unstoppable.
