Trek remedy or Yeti 575
Looking for a little help on deciding between Trek Remedy alloy and Yeti 575 alloy build will probably be the same on both.Posted 5 years ago
My riding is trail centers, natural rides (peak district) and odd trip to Antur in wales for uplift.
Dont need to look at other bikes as these are my options just looking for fore and against on these 2 specific bikes Like climbing ability etc. Appreciate sensible comments. CheersglasgowdanMember
Remedy. It’s a superb performer, looks amazing, climbs like a squirrel, descends like Felix Baumgartner, very little pedal bob, extremely capable, amazing, lovely etc etc. 160mm forks on front and you have a perfect enduro machine that copes with everything you might want to do on a bike.Posted 5 years agoSugdenMember
I’ve had 575 and done a few demo’s on both the Trek Fuel and Remedy. (Just for reference I moved from the Yeti to an Orange Five and have to say I’m much happier on the Orange. Always felt the yeti was a little twitchy)
Judging by the Antur comment you like your downs and while I enjoyed the Yeti downhill I wanted something a little more stable down and stiffer for climbing.
Simple comparison the yeti is a bit more lively than the Trek but the trek gave me a bit more confidence and climbs better in my opinion. Depends how you like your bike. Also the shock on the Trek just progresses through it’s travel in a smoother manner, the second chamber gives you a cushion on iffy landings.
They Yeti was a lovely bike though I really enjoyed mine over the year I had it, so please don’t be put off by my opinion.
I’m thinking about trying something new this year and looking at getting a Remedy or the Lapierre Spicy. Other things to look at are the Moji Ibis and the Santa Cruz Nomad. Not a definitive list but things to consider, then get drawn in many other directions from there.
Hope that helps.Posted 5 years agoglasgowdanMember
This has got to be the most drool-worthy bike I’ve seen in a while, Trek Slash

However, I can say that Trek are lovely helpful people (even to non-customers like me, long story, nothing but praise for them) and friends with Treks have only have good experiences with them when things do go wrong.
I am a Yeti customer and don’t rate the current importer at all with regards to helping out on warranty issues etc.
On this basis I would choose the Trek. Quite high up the shortlist for my next bike!nashwaymuleMember
Yeti I have one and am biased, based on the fact that once people have a Yeti they are alomst fanatical about staying with the brand. My 575 is a 2007 with many thousands of miles on it and once again will hit the alps this summer I can hang with the big boys most of the time and come home and pedal it round the Chilterns.Posted 5 years ago
I have not ridden a Remedy but did demo a Fuel a couple of years ago it pedalled very well and was very light but to me it was just a bit dull not that is ever did anything wrong. Also was not overly taken with the Bonty finishing kit on it.richiethesilverfishMember
Get the Yeti.
Despite what AndrewH tells you (and trust me, he will, on ANY thread that we come up in!) we’re decent guys, you’ll have no issue getting any genuine warranty covered and we sell amazing products. Oh and most importantly the 575 is a great, great bike.

Just sharing my experience, which is what the OP was after (and I am far from from alone in the ‘broken Yeti swingarm club’, I still believe that version is a flawed design) To be fair, when it is working it does ride very well.Posted 5 years ago
However, I also pop up to say that I have had great experiances with Marin, Magura, Cotic, Middleburn, Trek, and Wiggle, all above and beyond the call of duty and will recomend them whenever I get chance. I will avoid at all costs Pace and CRC.
Lots of positives there, I’m not just being negative 😀
I have 3 stories of Trek being very helpful (twice to me and once to my mate if the OP wants to hear good news about them? And as I said, I don’t even own a Trek, but will certainly consider one next time)
