    Can you post a pic of that specifically? Something has to be routed wrong, or maybe just too much slack pulled to the back of the bike, there's no way you should be having that.

    Apprecitae any help...looks like Silverfern had to do the same thing.

    Yes, exactly the same issue and I did the same thing , found it annoying at first ( a month or so ago ) but have kind of forgotten about it now, I will bring it up though when I take the bike back to the shop for its customary first free service .

    So I just pulled the caliper off and pulled all of the slack up front. Then I pulled the caliper back just enough to get it mounted and I think it did the trick...plenty of clearance. Weíll see how it holds up.

    you need to just pull all of hte slack out of it, and make sure that you have BOTH housings captured by the Ziptie keeper on the bottom of downtube. It's easy to get just 1, so some shops wont get both, which will then pull slack out and make it rub.

    Pull all cables tight, and make sure the keeper on the down tube is snug with both housings attached.

    Yeah, I think mine looks like it got a little closer to the spokes again too. Oh well, it's definitely better than it was and I'll wait and see if it ends up rubbing again. Still happy with the bike if I end up having to zip tie it again.

    how do you like the 2.8 minions compared to the 2.6 xr4s? do you find the rim wide enough for the tire? was rolling resistance increased dramatically? im thinking of doing the same

    I'm on the 2.6 SE5s and I love them. 2.8 is just too much tire for the kind of riding I do. Minions are too heavy for me.

    Has anyone weighed an 8? Just curious- read an outdoor gear labs review and they had a number that just did not sound right for the 8. (33.5#s). A 9.7s weight would be interesting too since so close in $s. Thanks

    Thanks, that's about what I expected- does this model come with really heavy "+" tubes or something? I remember the tubes the came on my stache were ridiculously heavy.

    I have a remedy 8 in Miami green. It's stock except I raked the fork out to 170 and put minions on (tubeless). No idea what it weighs but it climbs better than the 2014 carbon trance it replaced.

    Just changed the air spring in the Lyrik to go to 170?

    Yeah. Although I've noticed I never use full travel so might see if there's a token in there and take it out. The shop reckoned it came with one token installed.

    in the fork or in the hand? because my bike came with 2 tokens separately (the shop did the air spring before I picked the bike up)... maybe there's no tokens in there? The shop guy wasn't sure but he reckoned there might be one still installed.

    I can't seem to find it, but Rockshox has a chart somewhere that says how many tokens come in each fork and how many they can accept. Most, if not all, seemed to ship with at least one in them.

    Is it easy to upgrade the damper on the Remedy 8 Lyric to the RC2 damper?

    From what I've seen it's very easy- but I thought the Lyrik had the RC2 damper. It's on their site as Charger 2.

    The Remedy (8 at least, not sure about others) comes with the Lyrik RC, not the RC2. The RC2 has high and low compression adjustments whereas the RC only has low speed. Both have the DeBonair air spring and the Charger 2 damper.

    Sorry to hear that Silverfern. Mine has never done that. I presume that everything is torqued to correct spec?

    I do find that creaks come from all over the place and seldom exactly where I think they're from.

    What is it that makes it sound? Pedalling? Compression, cornering...?

    Compression of the shock , ive replaced the washer /spacer , found a store that had one in stock, the old one looked like it had a little crack in it , all good after first ride .

    Ive also eliminated another creak , loose brake cable where it enters the bottom of the downtube( see earlier in the thread where murlsqurl and myself were having issues ) was causing a creaking sound from the front of the bike .I thought it was headset. Ive ziptied it for now , will have to get that sorted properly myself. Took it back to the shop a few weeks back , young bike mechanic said it was normal for it to be loose .

    I talked to my shop mechanic (who is also a buddy) about the brake line deal and he said it's just the SRAM brakes and he tells everyone to just zip tie it. Not an issue with the XTRs apparently because of the angle of the line/caliper mount. Oh well...the zip doesn't bother me.

    I've got about 150 miles on the bike now and I'm creak free. So far so good.

    Picked up my 2019 Remedy 8 in Miami Green this week and love it. I had previously restricted my search to 29ers but took a Remedy out for a demo on a whim and was very impressed. I think it's as close as I've found to the perfect all-rounder. The geometry is progressive without being crazy long or slack and the Lyrik + GX Eagle combo is something I had only been seeing on much more expensive bikes. I think it's pretty damn good value.

    It's been unbelievably hot here these last few weeks (Australia) so I haven't been able to get out much, but I'm looking forward to putting some serious miles on this thing soon. Oh and the Miami green is just awesome!

    Congrats. Your Remedy looks awesome. Love the Miami green color. Is it a size L?

    I'm on the fence about the Remedy 8 or a Ripmo (NX build) as both are around the same price. I agree that I think the Remedy 8 is an excellent value given the spec.

    Here's a video from Land of Bikes of the stock setup and weight of 19.5- pretty sure including tubes. Weight is at the end.

    It's a 21.5, which I believe is an XL. Annoyingly, Invisiframe only make kits up to size 19.5 so I'm a bit stuck for protection at the moment. Has anyone got any suggestions for alternatives?

    The IBIS Ripmo is a much more expensive bike here in Aus so that was never really on my radar.

    Are you 100% sure you have the correct reducer?

    There is the Bontrager Drop Line Post and Line Dropper post, and they use different reducers. The notches are different sizes. Mine slid in pretty easily

    Humm, quite confusing, Bontrager Line if i look at the specs for remedy 8 2019, i might have bought wrong then, you have correct part nr?

    Looks correct! Could you snap a photo of the back of the dropper as well? I'm just wondering if perhaps your bike had the Drop Line switched for the new Line Dropper which uses a thinner shim.

    It feels like the reducer i have is about 1mm to thick if i compare it to the plastic sleeve that goes on top of it

    Bingo - I thought correct! You got a little upgrade

    You have the Line Dropper where the Drop Line would say "Drop Line" in silver on the back side. Return that reducer to the shop and have them order in part number W564787 for the other 10mm reducer.

    2019 Remedy?

    Pardon my ignorance but what are the 2 sets of threaded holes under the top tube for? Also thereís another oval thing under the downtube.

    Bottle mounts. Best used to mount a tool pack. The oval part is for the control freak cable management.

    Gotcha, thank you very much.
    Any suggestions on a good tool pack?

    I was told when I bought my remedy that the holes on the bottom of the top tube (closest to the seat tube) are Fox Live Value mounting points. It's unlikely that I'll upgrade anytime soon but it's nice to know the option is there.

    In other news, I've just ordered an Invisiframe kit. The 21.5 kit for alloy frames has only just become available on their website. It's going to be a tedious process applying it but it'll be good to have that extra protection.

    Awesome, thanks for the info and let us know how the Invisiframe comes out.

    Well I joined the club. Trails too wet to get in much of a ride yet. I think the scale is optimistic and I may reweigh it (I may not, I don't really care but it always makes me curious)- but no pedals/tubeless shown below. It's a 21.5- I got lucky, I am 6'2" but my torso is relatively long. When you slam the dropper in as far as it will go, it is PERFECT extension for me.

    seen it mentioned earlier, is anyone running the oneup 170 dropper in a large or XL 2019 remedy yet? looking to swap my 125 out (crash damaged a 2017 and bought a 2019 frameset)
    and pretty sure it'll fit with the full 170 drop with the collar slammed

    just making sure that if i get one, and it doesn't quite go fully down that i buy the shim at the same time

    Hi, I'm running the oneup 170 mm in a Remedy 19.5'. It fits perfectly. I do not need the shim. No worries.

    Striped down my 2019 remedy after a muddy ride. Found the rear brake hose has rubbed a groove of around 1mm into the chainstay. It looks like a bit of a shit design to me as the angle the calliper sits and angle of the hose exit force the hose to rub against the chainstay. The protective tape does nothing to protect against it. I have now put thick black gorilla tape over the area to hopefully limit the any further damage.
    Is there any point in contacting Trek about it? Probably not as they will say its not a manufacturing defect and user error.
    So to other remedy owners out there I would carefully check the hose routing and put a shit-ton of frame protector on there.

    First real ride on it. The sun is out and things are finally drying up.

    2019 Remedy?-20190310_090630.jpg

    I don't plan on doing a lot to this bike- putting on a bashguard since I drug a rock already (ya I'm sure it's me, not the bike- but cheap insurance). It really motors up things-I'm a little surprised after coming off a hardtail. So far, I'm really liking just leaving it in the pedal setting and letting it do it's thing.

    @fishwishy- me too on slamming the post on an xl. The seatpost ended up being perfect length for me when I put the post all the way down to the collar. I'm glad that there's enough insertion to do that. Plenty of standover though- just a tall mast.

    i wouldn't swap if i had the stock 150mm , but some of my build kit is 2017 so have a 125mm dropper, i've got freakishly long legs and short body so if im upgrading might aswell go for a big drop, my collar on the 125mm is a little high so it'll be pretty great to be able to do it

    In fairness that's kind of the case with all bikes... Check where your cables touch frame and add some protective tape. I've seen road bikes with the carbon headtube nearly eaten through.

    I agree they could have done something better, but so could literally every other bike manufacturer. In fact, I think Trek has some of the best cable routing out right now (though my opinion may be skewed because I install a lot of dropper posts.)

    One of the guys at my lbs bought a stock 8, put a super deluxe coil on and slacked out the lyrik to 180. He's taking it to whistler. He said he hasn't had any issues with bottoming out, but hadn't ridden any big lines yet. It felt very nice in car park testing.

    How's the Remedy reports for 2019? I'm tossing up between a remedy, canyon Spectral, or Norco sight. Any insight that might sway me any direction?

    Hello

    I want to change my Remedy 2019 shock.
    What dimensions for the dpx2 to choose? 230x57.5 or 230x60?
    Original 230x57.5 is hard to find, it is not a common dimension. Anyone riding the 230x60?
    Thanks

    See my below post about the shop guy with a coil- he used a SC 230x60 shock (had to jerry rig mounting hardware). Says it works with plenty of seatstay clearance but voids the warranty.

    Re below post about vs the Sight, there's a dude who does a youtube called MTB telly, had a 2018 remedy 8 for a while, thought the remedy was burlier than the sight (but reign burlier than the remedy for comparison). I'm pretty happy but haven't owned heaps of bikes.

    While this a slash and not a remedy, no problems with using a coil. Turns the bike into a whole new beast. My buddy at work runs the same shock on his 19' remedy. Cane creek makes it in a 230x57.5, and you just use hardware from a 2017 slash.

    Thank's. I did find out today that 230x60 and 230x57.5 are the same shock. The travel is reduced with a spacer.

    Me too (high mode). Particularly surprising climber up rocks/rutted terrain considering travel. Decently high BB so you don't have to constantly ratchet.

    @asunder, sorry- haven't tried the Canyon or Sight. But I do like my Remedy quite a bit.

    Is the high mode the default setting?
    Is the remedy agile over small rocks, roots?

    No, low mode is default- but it is dead easy to change, literally less than 2 minutes.

    It is very agile for a bike with this much travel period, whether on rocks, berms, whatever. It's a maneuverable bike with enough travel that you don't get hung up too easily.

    I posted in the Santa Cruz section but figured I could ask here as well. Did anyone have the new Bronson on their radar when making their purchase decision? Anyone have time on both bikes that would be able to offer up some insight on how these bikes compare? I have had time on the Remedy but not the Bronson. Extremely impressed with how much the bike just wants to jump every little bump on the trail. Wondering if the Bronson is similar.

    Hi all, another stoked Remedy 8 owner ...this bike rocks ! Quick question on tyre pressure on these 2.6XR4 - what pressure do you run them for technical trails?
    Thanks !

    I cross shopped them. I test road a Bronson v2 and v3. Not a lot of time but here's my thoughts. The sc v3 feels bigger, lower and more stable. It feels like you can downhill with reckless abandon. It's got a very low bb and just feels glued. It really just squats into berms. The v2 was a good match for the new remedy, but the vpp was worse about doing that lurchy thing on tech climbs

    The trek feels like a long legged trail bike. It definitely feels happier on trail climbs. It's a great descender but not quite as monster trucky as the sc. The bb is higher and it's easier to get over obstacles, especially going up.

    I honestly think the pinkbike comparo is pretty spot on. If setting stravas dh is your goal I think the sc is probably better, but the trek is a more comfortable all around.

The v2 was a good match for the new remedy, but the vpp was worse about doing that lurchy thing on tech climbs

    The trek feels like a long legged trail bike. It definitely feels happier on trail climbs. It's a great descender but not quite as monster trucky as the sc. The bb is higher and it's easier to get over obstacles, especially going up.

    I honestly think the pinkbike comparo is pretty spot on. If setting stravas dh is your goal I think the sc is probably better, but the trek is a more comfortable all around.
    Appreciate the insight. I pulled the trigger and picked up a Remedy 8 from the Trek shop close by. I have been demoing their 9.8 so I already know what to expect. They even hooked it up with the RT3 through shaft shock.

    New Matte Gravel 9.8 owner here.

    2019 Remedy?-img_2151.jpg

    Working to get the suspension dialed to my liking. Installed a DSD RUNT and running 55psi low/110psi and the sag sits at 30%. I'm 187lb RTR.

    For the rear shock 179 psi gives me 30% sag. The recommended -5 clicks rebound felt a bit slow and I'm currently at -6. I'm curious how many tokens it comes with and will open it up this weekend to check.

    Are most of you running it in "pedal" or "open"? I've tried both and am currently mostly running "pedal" even in gravity feed situations.

    Congrats. I run mine at about 32% sag with pedal mode on most of the time. Seems to be a good all-around setting for my terrain. Have fun.

    I have only been running it in open. I should give the pedal position a shot tho. I have always just run rear shocks in "open" because I prefer the traction while climbing techy rock sections. Gives me maximum gription

    I was thinking the same thing and ran it "open" to begin with. Then I read somewhere (can't recall where) that RE:aktiv Thru Shaft setups were optimized to run in "pedal" mode on the Remedy. Need to just run it both way for awhile and make sure the rebound is proper to make sure it doesn't feel mushy.

    I mostly run it it open , but it depends where im riding ,

    Pedal mode is probably the best for climbing but ive got this bad habit of forgetting to put it back to open , so just leave it in open a lot of the time to avoid that problem ,

    For me open is by far the best for descents , and for climbs the difference isnt that much of a biggie.

    I love my custom 9.9
    I also run it in open, but more because I want the best possible downhillperformance. Bikemag stated, that it is designed for pedal use, there should be very little compromise when going downhill. I might as well try pedal for up and downhill, so I dont have to switch back and forth all the time.

    Yes, that was the reference.

    I'm going to continue to experiment with both "Open" and "Pedal". May also try adding a volume spacer (my shop told me these are delivered with 1 spacer installed) for the rear and see how that works with my weight when running in "Open". As it is, "Open" feels a bit mushy even when the sag is set at 30%.

    That's basically how I got to 32% but with pedal mode on. It seems very sensitive to small air pressure changes. I found 30/open to be a little too soft and 30/pedal to be too firm. But 32/pedal seemed to work pretty well for me in my terrain.

    Im on a 9.8 . just curious what tyres others are running on their remedys ,

    I rode all summer here on the SE4s 2.6 that came with it , enjoyed them ,no complaints, but the wet season has arrived , and noticed grip in the wet is not that great ,

    Put on some Maxxis DHF max grip 3c on the front , and Aggressor on the back both in 2.5 , nice tyres super grippy , roll fast , but kind of missing the feel of the wider rubber that I wasnt expecting .particularly when rolling over obstacles .

    Thinking I should have gone the Maxxis 2.6 Max terra now ,for the grip and to keep that wide rubber feel

    curious to know what others are using , cheers

    2.6 dhf/2.5 aggressor. i got these to cut down on the rolling resistance. it helped, but like you said i miss the floatiness of the xr4s.

    Iím thinking of trying 2.6 dhf front and keeping the bontragers on the back , to sharpen up the front end in corners and hopefully keep some of the same feel .

    Or can anyone recommend a maxxis 2.6 as a rear tyre ?

    I put a 2.6 WTB Vigilante up front and left the stock SE4 on the back. I'm more than happy. Having used nothing but DHF up front before, I love the Vigilante and the SE4 is a great rear tire.

    I remember reading a review on these some time ago, and they sounded pretty good , how would you compare them to the DHF , just as grippy ?

    Hi, Iím interested to know if people are riding the size as per treks recommendations or if youíve sized up to get the more modern long reach? Iím 174cm (5í8.5Ē) and sit in the middle of the 18.5 M/L recommendation, Iíve demoed this size but am wondering if going up to a 19.5 is something I should consider however I havenít got a store locally with demo bikes.

    I'm the same height as you and bought a 19.5. I like a longer reach. I have the dropper slammed as low as it can go, I wouldn't mind if it could go a couple cm lower but it's fine. The 150mm dropper at full extension is ideal for seated climbing for me. If you can throw a leg over one it would be good because yeah the seat tube is a little longer than it needs to be but I just fit.

    When I'm in between sizes, I always go with the larger size. I don't like a cramped cockpit.

    As said though, it's best ride each size then you'll have a better idea of what you prefer.

    I'm thinking about getting a new Remedy 8. I currently have a FEX 8 (27.5+) and I'm wondering if the remedy will climb as good as my fuel. Anyone coming from a Fuel that can compare how the two compare in climbing?

    Im 5'-10" myself. After test riding for a half hour I ended up getting an 2017 Remedy 9.9 18.5. A buddy recently got a new 2019 Remedy 8 19.5. After riding them back to back for a few days, I really wish I would have went with the 19.5.

    It definitely will not climb as well as your Fuel. It isn't a huge loss in climbing ability, but it is noticeable.

    I am the exact same height as you and went with the 18.5. I wanted it to be a fun allroundbike since I already have a 29er Enduro race bike. Depends on what you are after, if you wanna race it take 19.5, if its your only bike and you want a flickable light bike to play around, go with 18.5.

    I'm 5'10" and have always been happy that I went 19.5. The seat tube is a little long which is frustrating (I can only use 125mm of post), but the reach and geo feels much better.

    Just a question re the sizing of the 2019 Remedy. I'm coming from a 17.5 2014 Fuel ex 8 but I've read that the 2019 Remedy sizes a little smaller. I'm 5'7, 170cm and just wondering whether the 17.5 or 18.5 would be a better fit. Sat on both in the shop and 18.5 felt more comfortable but that really gives no idea about how it will feel after an hour or two in the saddle out on the trails. If the 17.5 feels short I can always shit the seat back.

    Just wondering if anyone else has sized up on the 2019 Remedy?

    Thanks

    I prefer a larger frame on the Remedy which makes it more stable downhill and on jumps. So my suggestion would be to go for the 18.5 frame. If you have any friends who ride one, you should try to take their bikes to the trail to try out!

    For me, (had a '18 Remedy 9.8), my FEX climbed better, mostly because of my 29" carbon wheels, but not by much. A couple of test loops about 12 miles long, the Remedy was about a minute and a half slower. The remedy was slower on the climbs, but faster on the descents.

    I think since you have a 27+ FEX, they will be about on par.

    Just a heads up for anyone who is curious.

    I just upgraded my 2018 Remedy's Lyrik with a Debonair air spring and the new Charger 2.1 damper.

    The suspension now feels more plush off the top than before, similar to how some have described the 2019 Remedy. Trails with high speed chatter are now much more muted, which is pretty much exactly the feel I was hoping to get with fork upgrade. And it really seems like the front end has more grip during high speed cornering.

    I think it's a worthwhile upgrade if anyone is considering it.

    I was playing around with my bike and decided to take some measurements. Is it possible the published charts are wrong?

    I measured out the bb height at 342mm and the STA at 74.7 with the bike in low setting. I know the STA will float with the offset angle of the post, but I measured with the seat even with the bars using the top center of the seatpost as my reference point. This was on an XL. Anyone else finding this?

    *edit* I just put it in 'high' and got 352 bb height.

    I don't know if anyone else has swapped out their brakes but I just replaced my guides with these:

    https://www.singletracks.com/blog/mt...ce-for-enduro/

    And the difference is night and day. Can't believe I didn't do it earlier as the guides were pissing me off. Loads more power. Thought I'd share just in case anyone else isn't liking their guides.

    Also, is anyone running a coil fork/shock or a super deluxe on one of these? just curious...

    Has anyone ridden the 2020 Remedy 7? How does the suspension feel with the RS 35 Gold fork?

    What's making you sell it? And what are you looking to replace it with if at all?
