    Devinci Troy vs Trek Remedy vs Transition Scout

    I started riding about a year ago on a 2014 Trek X-caliber 9 and ive really enjoyed it but its made me realize how much i want a full suspension. Its pretty much between the Devinci Troy Carbon RS the Trek Remedy 8 27.5 and the Transition Scout 3. Now i know the best way to choose is to ride them but i can only ride the remedy due to the availibility of the devinci and transition so i thought id ask for some other opinions.

    I would also have liked to hear some humble opinions on that question. BUMP.
    Saddle up, Effendi. We ride.

    Humble opinion...

    The bikes you listed are all fine bikes, MHO is to ask yourself some questions.

    "How important is local dealer support? Do all your own maintenance? Not so necessary, have trouble checking tire pressure? Maybe a bit more important."

    "Do you enjoy having a relatively rare brand like Devinci? A large branded manufacturer like Trek? Does it matter to you at all?

    I bought a Troy last year mostly due to the following reasons:

    Phenomenal rear suspention linkage.
    Price per suspention package. The Troy has a wonderful suspention for the price, I know they go with a bit cheaper components to keep the price down, but I enjoy upgrading those items anyway.
    Local dealer support.
    Good deal price wise.
    A little bit of a rare bike, I do like riding a bike that not everyone has heard of or sees regularly. Not a big thing to me but it is a little cool.

    The good think is you do not have a wrong choice on your list, only great bikes you probably won't ride to their limits.
    And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver. A. Senna

    Well after a bunch of thought I went for a fuel ex 9. The remedy's sold out. The reason I didn't choose devinci is just because of the lack of support in my area. It's an extremely attractive bike and a great price but the nearest dealer was 4 hours from me.

    The fuel 9 is no slouch. Hope you enjoy it.
