remedy part 3, the middle

I will never finish a bike until it’s getting sold. There is always dreams and thoughts in my mind, always coming new things that seems fun to try, terrain and friends are changing. And so on. But for now my Trek Remedy is finished (read: missing parts)

My goal was to build a Trailbike capable of everything like my 7 year old Liteville 301. This got better angles, lower headtube/front, made for 27,5″ wheels, a much better rear damper, 39g lighter and better crankset, 6,25cm wider handlebar.

So me who never liked Trek now got 2 (!) Trek. Strange but things change and I’m not closed to one brand. If we skip functions and pricing I think Trek got one of the best paintjobs on the market now, high quality painting with great deep feels like it will hold. A great finish.
