    Don't Get a Slash get a Remedy, it has a little less suspension but its way more responsive and light weight. Its trail oriented but I have gone off 40 foot jumps on it and it handled it perfectly. It's my new favorite bike.

      I've been riding the bike since the beginning of summer, and its holding up just fine. No problems in the wheels even after jumping a ton and doing some gnarlier DH trails with it. My only quarrel with the frame is that if you ever run a chain guide, i.e. remove your front derailleur, there is no good way to plug the internal routing holes for the cable. Same problem happens on the internal cable poret for the stealth reverb post. I just streched some black electrical tape over them and no more problems! So a small thing to gripe about but a super easy fix! Awesome bike

      Cheap Components?? Please. Destroy the cheap ones (they will last longer than you think) then put on your XTR or Sram or Race Face. Just got this rig 2 days ago and already have 3 rides. Came from the Coilair that got Jacked in HB. One thing I do notice is that my cranks and pedals are hitting the ground more, but feel more confident being lower to the ground. Riding the Luge this weekend so I will post more then. So far the bike lives up to what it was built for PURE FUN - No Shuttle!!. I am 260 so I will be putting this rig through the durablity test.

      Comments:

      I ride alot. This bike performs well in all situations. Took it to Moab and Fruita, was very happy to have all the travel. At 30.5 pounds, you can still march up hills, the rear suspension really works. My only complaint is the fork, which has broken twice in 6 months, that is Rock Shox issue, not Trek.I am definitely more confident on this bike than my lighter XC bike, and choose it on a regular basis. It gets lots of attention on the trail, everyone thinks it is cool!
