Awhile back I got the opportunity to have a go on Treks new All-Mountain platform, the Remedy 9. Trek chose Mexico as the location and for good reason. Good weather, great food, and amazing trails! In part 1 you were introduced to Trek’s newest machine, the Remedy. I got technical on you and showed you what makes a Remedy a Remedy, told you how our first few rides went and you got to read about the Valley of the Monks.
This is not a bike test whatsoever, just an introduction to the new Remedy and a chance to put some miles in on it and form an early opinion. The days of entirely new suspension designs being thrown at us every year are gone and it looks like most manufacturers are staying with and refining systems that work well. That is good news for you as things will get lighter, work better and last even longer. That’s not to say that everything that can be thought of has, it just means that we’re past using designs that are new just because they are new. That is why I was excited to ride the new Remedy with the ABP system. When a succesful company like Trek rethinks and retools their full suspension bike line, I’m fairly confident that that means they are on to something.
