What Do You Ride?

2019 Trek Remedy 9.8

Why This Bike?

I wanted a fun bike that I can ride anywhere. From Rotorua shuttles to all day trail rides.

What do you love about this bike?

Just how playful the bike feels. The short stays, smaller 27.5" wheels and modern geometry numbers make it an easy bike to throw around on the trail. 

What changes have you made or want to make?

Maxxis Minion DHF & Minion DHR II tyres, Ergon Enduro saddle, Ergon GE1 Grips, Marsh Guard and Shimano XT trail pedals. I'm also running a shorter handlebar at only 760mm. 

Where do you ride?

Anywhere really. My favorite spot is the Rotorua Redwoods, but I also spend a bit of time riding singletrack in Taupo. My local hill is Mt Pirongia near Hamilton though.

What does this bike do well?

It's not a race bike, but it handles a wide variety of terrain well. Super fun on technical terrain, roudy lines and in the air.
