Trek Remedy 9.9
Brand new for 2011, the Trek Remedy 9.9 is lighter, tighter, and more versatile than the 2010 Remedy bike. I have a confession to make, I love Trek bikes. I still have a 8500 hardtail in the garage for when I want some old-school backside hanging out, lightweight trail-blazing, hardcore fun! So to say this is going to be a lob-sided review is, well, er, true!
Having said that, the Trek Remedy 9.9 has earnt its praise so we’re not telling you anything you don’t already know. Refined to 150mm of matched front and rear travel and a DRCV rear shock, the Trek Remedy 9.9 2011 Mountain Bike will allow you to ride new lines, manage awesome descents with ease and climb outrageous hills with a spring in your metaphorical step.
The Remedy 9.9 2011 bike is not the cheapest you’ll ever see, but if your reading this then you are likely to be an appreciator of the finer things in life. Here’s the low-down on price; the Trek Remedy 9.9 2011 is £6,499.99 which compares to £4,999.99 for the 2010 bike.
However, the Trek Remedy 9.9 bike is available for just £3,999.99 at present, a massive £1,000 off the price, making it a great offer. Just click on the previous link to check the latest price.
The full specification is listed below but here are some thoughts before you sacrifice your summer holiday in order to pay for your new Trek.
- Are you happy with a carbon fibre frame, or should you be thinking of titanium?
- Are tubeless tyres ok, are you sure?
- SRAM XX throughout, sounds good
- What pedals are you going to chose? Do you really want to put your old pedals on this shiny new bike>
We haven’t ride the 2011 bike yet, but if those lovely people at Trek are reading, we’d love to. Just one word of caution though, you might not get it back!
