While it might not feel like the end of winter, it will be here soon, and we need to start making room for bicycles! While we are getting thin on certain sizes and models, we still have plenty of great touring, skate, and backcountry gear to replace that old, worn out stuff you’ve been nursing along for the past few seasons. And the bonus is we are currently experiencing some of the best conditions of the winter! Sale starts this Friday the 15th, and ends Monday the 18th. Come in early for best selection!
2 out of 3 Pinkbike editors choose Remedy
Pinkbike’s discerning product testers have been busy putting long-travel all-mountain bikes through some rigorous late-season shootout testing. Remedy had tough competition from some great bikes. But in the end, two out of three testers said they would choose Remedy if forced to pick their one-and-only ride.
“I want a bike that feels relatively quick and efficient on all types of climbs. And when it’s time to come back down, I want a bike that rewards how I like to ride, which is like an idiot. Yeah, I want to be rewarded for being an idiot. I don’t need to snag any KOMs on the descents, but I do need to take dumb lines, skid a load, spend a lot of time on one wheel, and generally be a goof.” – Mike Levy
“I’d go with the Remedy. Why? It’s fun. It makes me want to ride, and do so in a variety of terrain without worrying about whether the bike is up to the task or not. I think that I would feel equally comfortable riding it at home in Pisgah as I would anywhere in the Pacific Northwest.” – Daniel Sapp
With 150mm/160mm of travel, fun-loving 27.5” wheels, and a host of Trek technologies that guarantee a great ride, Remedy is down for any party, no matter how wild.

Great article in Velo News about how to increase your visibility to drivers. The 2 big take-aways are: most cyclists vastly overrate how visible they are to drivers, and that good daytime running lights and proper clothing can increase your visibility up to 270% – that’s a pretty huge number. With drivers being more and more distracted, making yourself as visible as possible has never been more important! Be safe out there!
