Trek has been fully committed to 29er mountain bikes for several years, incorporating the ideas and work of Gary Fisher into their range of models. Longer travel 29ers took a while to develop, but earlier this year they wowed the world with the big-wheeled Remedy. Then immediately followed that with a 650B Remedy. You could get dizzy trying to keep up with the bicycle industry sometimes.
The 140mm has been a popular choice in the UK and the shift towards 650B wheels probably won’t do it any harm. It gets a 67.5-degree head angle and 1131mm wheelbase, and will be available in carbon and alloy versions. So with a 650B and 29er version of the Remedy, which would you choose? I would be amazed if both make it into Trek’s 2015 range.
