    Thank you for the write up Francis. Now that you’ve been able to ride both the Fuel EX 29er and the Remedy 29er, was there a big difference in the way the two bikes climb? I’m torn between the two.

  • Francis Cebedo says:

    The Remedy climbs better. The Fox CTD shock keeps the pedal-induced bob under control. The Front is lower and doesn’t lift up as much and the BB is higher, avoidiing pedal strikes on tech sections.

    The Enduro has a very high front end so one has to pay attention to keep that front end down (with the very short stays). The demo bike we tested had a 120-150mm Talas front so that helped climbing.

    The BB is low so it’s not hard to hit the cranks on obstacles. And finally, the Cane Creek DB Air is very active so it bobs a lot during climbs. But for 2014, they are shipping the Enduro with the new DB Air with a climbing switch lever to stiffen up the shock instantly while pedaling.

    Thank you for your reply Francis, that answers another question I had, but I was actually curious about the difference between the Fuel EX 29 and the Remedy 29.

    I am trying to decide between the Remedy 29er or the Yeti SB95 both in Aluminum. Any suggestions out there? I love descending, Drops and Tight turns are mostly what I ride. But would like the uphill ride to be faster than the 26er. I have a 26er Remedy 2011 8 XL size.
