The Trek Remedy–Loads of Travel and Nimble Handling

September 11, 2015

The 2016 Trek Remedy is landing soon at Bicycle Sport Shop. Even better, it’ll be available in our rental department for you to test ride on your favorite trails. This is one ride you don’t want to miss.

The long travel trail bike platform is ideal for central Texas’ rough, rocky terrain. Trek has taken the incredibly popular Fuel series of trail bikes and added plush, adjustable travel to give you unique ride characteristics unlike other bikes in this category. Our bike buyer Scott Linville said, “the handling [on the Remedy] is more ‘cross country’ for a long travel bike as compared to other brands’ comparable long-travel all-mountain bikes.” So if you’re looking for a bike that couples fast, snappy handling with plush, comfy travel, the 2016 Trek Remedy is ready to roll on a good test ride.

The 2016 Remedy 9.8 Carbon 27.5 is a "must ride."

The 2016 Remedy 9.8 Carbon 27.5 is a “must ride.”

We’re stocking the 27.5” platform for the Remedy, our experience leading us to believe that a trail bike like this is best served by the riding attributes of the smaller, more nimble wheels as compared to 29” wheels. The Remedy is also available in 29” wheels which may suit taller riders or those who prefer big wheels to help smooth out the roughs when even the spacious travel of the Plush isn’t quite enough. In either wheel size, the aluminum Remedy models boasts Trek’s Boost 148 mm rear hub spacing and 100 mm front hub spacing, both of which allow for stiffer wheels and wider tires. And with the rear end’s design, it also means shorter chainstays and multiple chainring options.

We have the top-end Remedy 9.8 Carbon 27.5 as a limited availability demo and we’re stocking that model as well as the Remedy 8 27.5, a Shimano XT equipped alloy trail wonderbike. The Remedy 8 will be part of our regular rental fleet later this fall.

With so many options in mountain bikes, you owe it to yourself to come in and take one of these for a spin. Get the best in suspension design and thoughtful geometry with the 2016 Trek Remedy.

    “In either wheel size, the aluminum Remedy models boasts Trek’s Boost 148 mm rear hub spacing and 100 mm front hub spacing, both of which allow for stiffer wheels and wider tires” The 27.5 doesn’t have boost spacing. Check your info against the trek website.
