    Has anyone who ordered just a Slash frameset been able to also get a Reverb Stealth dropper post from their dealer? I've ordered a frame to do a very custom build but now am being told by numerous shops and even Trek that I can't buy a Stealth post from them. This was one of the main reasons I wanted this frame as it was ready for this post. Thanks.

    You could order the Stealth as a spare part.
    11.6815.029.040 Assembly Seat Post, 380/125x31.6 - Reverb Stealth Black (complete replacement post - does not include hose or remote)
    And
    11.6815.026.040 Remote Lever Assembly/new hose Kit (Right)
    - Reverb (includes right remote lever, new hose 1500mm, new hose barb, new strain relief).

    I got the seatpost, but i heard Trek are out of frames in 17,5". Hope they make more of them so I can use my Stealth Reverb.

    Hi KnutL,

    Did you place the order with Trek or Sram?

    Nice, thanks. As asked above, this was through Trek and not Sram, right? Thanks again.

    Well that sucks, the Trek website wasn't of any help trying to find out. Useless. But thanks for your answer Any dealers over there shipping the frame worldwide or is the only way i'm gonna ride a slash buying the complete bike (which I obviously won't )?

    I'm 5'10 34.5" inseam. 18.5 with and 55mm stem is a perfect fit, so it may feel slightly small for you, better go throw a leg over. If you're riding gnar smaller is better.

    Slash sizing

    Anybody familiar with this bike, does it feel smaller compared to a Remedy? I am 5'8" with a long upper torso. Currently on a Medium 17.5" Remedy, use a 50mm stem and ride it with the seat pushed all the way back. It seems from the other comments here to move up one size to the 18.5" large frame. The specs for the ETT are one size small. However, no one in my area has one and I'd like someones hands on input. Would the longer wheelbase be an issue?

    I've had mine for about two weeks and I love it! I came from a 15.7" Remedy to a 17.5" Slash. The length feels right fine. Has anyone else had issues with their RP3? Mine is already going back for repairs.

    I typically ride an 18.5 but went a size up with the Slash. Glad I did! Took it out for the first real ride over the weekend and the sizing felt perfect!

    No issues with my shock. I just need to get the settings dialed to my preference after the first ride. What's going on with yours?

    Definately go up a size... I usually ride an 18.5 or 19.5, I got a 19.5 and had to get a longer stem in order to get a proper fit. Love the bike though.

    Hello, I am very interested in dropping some $$ on a Slash but I am not sure what size to get. My LBS does not have have a Slash on the floor nor are they expecting to get one so I really can't sit on one to figure out what size to get. I am 5'5" with a 29" inseam. I currently ride a Med. 2005 Blur 4X with a 40mm stem. I have been using it for all mountain rides here in North Cali that last about 2 to 3 hours so comfort is important. But just as important is the DH aspect. Can anyone tell me if I would be better off on a small or a med?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sit on a Remedy if they have one or even a Fuel. I know that the geometry would be different but the frame sizing is very similar.

    Find the size that fits in the Remedy or Fuel and then compare that to the sizing on the trek site for the Slash.

    I looked at it in person and my memory is saying VAN because I didn't see lockout on his fork, just the two compression adjustments on the right leg. Honestly, he was probably running a 2013 TALAS that's going back to RC2 but I can't recall.

    I was just hoping to see him on a prototype carbon slash which would be the precursor for next year.

    With zoom, you can clearly see the Talus lockout lever and black dial on top. But the left top cap looks more like a Van.... maybe it's modified. Anyways, yes it's a tough decision. Personally I want DH performance, and high speed compression is pretty important, Van is the obvious choice. Too bad there isn't a Van with lockout.

    Mine is up for sale. Great price if you're looking for a Slash 9 in 21.5. They run small so its more like a 19.5.

    2012 Trek Slash 9 - Buy and Sell and Review Mountain Bikes and Accessories


    I would keep it but I need the money for a business I am starting. The initial order for the product is a lot higher than expected so I am selling my stuff to avoid having to borrow.

    I know this is a stupid question but would you want to sell the Reverb Stealth seat post? Even trade it (plus some money) for a normal Reverb?

    I ask as I ordered a Slash Frameset and neither Trek or Sram will sell me a Stealth post to go with it. This is my first try with Trek and I'm not real impressed so far, seems very short-sighted to not be ready for that request. Not a lot of suppport from the local Trek folks either.
    Thanks.

    I can't sell it but if you want you could buy the bike and sell your frame

    Just thought I'd comment that I finally have some time on my 21.5" Slash 9 and it has blown me away.

    It's a bike that just keeps asking for more and never falters. For being air sprung it's amazing the travel seems bottomless and the bike just gets better the faster I go. It's also got great stiffness and holds a line really well. Also I'd say the valving is quite good for a stock bike, it sticks like velcro and is only airborne when I want it to be. Really loving this thing. The Bontrager tires are surprisingly good here for front range Colorado as well.

    If they keep selling like they are I wouldn't be surprised to see a carbon slash proto in a year or so, maybe be available as a 2014 model in late 2013.

    It depends on what size frame your order as far as stem length goes. For reference, my 19.5 came with a 50mm. The handlebar is longish feeling at close to 30in I cut it to 28in and it feels great. Mine is a slash 8 as well, It's an awesome bike...you will be happy with your purchase

    I got the slash 9 and my LBS told me it comes with a 50mm stem. Not sure what the handlebar width is. I can't wait to get it next week.

    vegas_84 : thanks man!

    roach666 : I know that the slash 9 comes whit bontragers 750mm carbon bar with a 50mm stem.

    So the difference seems to be only the material then slash 9:carbon bar. slash 8:alu bar.

    @psycho_sw - Thanks for the 411 but I ordered the frame only. Plan on building it up custom. Parts are sitting in the garage waiting for the frame.
