Bike Test: Trek Remedy 9.8 29

11.04.2014 //

My first ride on the new carbon fiber Remedy 9.8 29 reminded me how capable this line of bikes is, plus now it’s much livelier, snappier and over a pound lighter. It’s a markedly better ride. The bike scoots up hills just as well as the Fuel EX, but ups the ante on descents.

10.31.2014 //

CRANKBROTHERS GOT A BLACK EYE WHEN IT RELEASED ITS first wheel line back in 2010 and the rear hubs failed at a rate of about 17 percent.

We always dream about journeys to places like this, but for most mortals these reveries rarely become a reality. When it was decided that a group of us would spend seven days on the roads and trails of New Zealand’s South Island, hovering largely around the Craigieburn and then Nelson area, most of us were in disbelief until the moment we landed on Kiwi soil.

Cane Creek Product Safety Notice

At Cane Creek, we strive to make best-in-class products that provide exceptional performance and rider experience. During the initial production of the DBinline rear shock, we did not live up to this promise.
