trek remedy or enduro?

Postby monk18 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 20:07 pm

Hi all, I had the bike of my dreams! 2011 specialized enduro comp. But sadly it was stolen last year. So now I've saved up all my penny's I can now buy a new bike, my dilemma is that a new 2013 enduro comp is out of my price range and a , 2012 enduro is all wrong! So lm looking at a trek remedy 8 2012 but will I love this bike as much as my enduro? Also my enduro was a size medium this was great but trek size is a head ache.. actual virtual??? Just don't under stand what size the bike is? When looking on trek web site there is no reference to the two sizes just 16.5 17.5 18.5 etc
Help!

Have you had a look for another 2011 spesh enduro comp? Might have to buy second hand but if it was the perfect bike for you might be worth buying another one.

Remedy is more of a trail bike than an AM bike, not as hard hitting as the Enduro. I would go for either the 2012 Enduro, Giant Reign X or Rose Uncle Jimbo.
The Rose is a great ride. I had a ride on one, nice geometry, good rear suspension and excellent spec for the cash.
