    Just so you know, new Remedys sizing is abit off compared to the old ones. Have always ridden a 19.5" in Trek (2014, 2012 Remedy, 2014 Fuel). Ordered a 19.5" 2017 9 RSL when they first landed, but it's too small for me. Had a ride on a 21.5" and that fitted much better. Have since sold it and swapped to riding road for the summer, too farkin hot.

    The reign has lyrik rct3 but the remedy has lyrik rc dual-position. Also the reign is around 500g lighter

    Is that alloy or carbon? I put a carbon fuel ex in L on the scales in the trek store, came in 13.4 from memory. Trance is currently 12.3 without trying.

    I still think 27mm int isn't enough on current trail & enduro bike wheels if carbon is used, maybe it's their mass production long lead times, but would it have killed them to make it 30int? Paulie your wheels are the model before, about 27mm ext and 21mm int.
    Be careful with that, it was new once.

    I should clarify, I don't know whether or not they are 27mm int, was just guessing. I am pretty sure they are not 33mm internal though.

    Hey Jim, you guessed correctly, they're 27mm internal.

    Alo, interesting to know. I ran a Large in Giant, an XL on my 2015 Remedy (i.e. 21.5"), so hopefully they're not far off as that's the largest size! Their sizing does seem off, I'm 6'1".

    Same height as you, I'm more legs than torso. Still ride my Fuel in 19.5" and feel fine on it. 21.5" would be fine for you, 23" is massive. Had a go on one in a Remedy 8 last year when it was special ordered in for a customer.

    Hopefully the Remedy 9's are still coming with Reverbs because the Bonty Drop-Line is the worst dropper post ever.

    Yeah 21 internal. Wifes new roadie has 21 internal too...WTF.

    Personally am not that excited about wider rims. Was running 30mm internal with ghetto tubeless 14 years ago and didn't think maxxis liked it paticularly much had no problems moving back to narrower mavic 321 and 521 rims. I guess new Maxxis will be better but I also dont like big bags unless a track really calls for it.

    Nah they've gone to the Bont now. Is the Giant branded dropper any better?

    Fuel EX and Slash are 29. Remedy is 27.5. (Fuel EX 27.5+ is not available in Australia)
