Remedy 7 is a mountain bike built for mountain towns. Our best-value Remedy has all the performance features you could want for a ridiculously fun time on the most technical trails. A long travel 160mm RockShox fork, 150mm rear suspension, dropper post, and an 12-speed drivetrain check all the all-mountain boxes.
It's right for you if...
Every ride is recess. You've graduated Mountain Biking 101, and now want a real trail bike you can throw around—one that's not shy about trying new lines, leaving the ground, and clearing obstacles. You want a solid parts group and a durable frame, and you want it at a great value.
The tech you get
A durable and lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame, 160mm RockShox 35 Gold fork, and 150mm of rear travel. Plus, dependable SRAM NX 12-speed drivetrain, SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes, a dropper post, and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement.
The final word
The frame is trustworthy and the parts are solid. But what really makes this bike great is that it handles and rides like a bike that costs twice as much. That's because it's designed the same way as our top-end Remedy: for a playful ride you can count on when the trail gets rowdy.
Why you'll love it
- Remedy 7 combines an ultra-capable frame and shock with tough, no-fuss parts that keep the stoke high and the cost low
- 29er wheels are great for other people, but 27.5-inch wheels are livelier and more fun on rugged trails
- The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use
- You get a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness in the rough and Knock Block frame defense to protect against spinning bars and fork crowns
Wider than standard yet narrower than fat, plus-size rims and tires hit the sweet spot in grip, stability, and speed, giving you more confidence on technical terrain. Compared to a standard tire you’ll feel grip in places you wouldn’t expect thanks to a bigger contact patch and greater rollover clearance. More air volume allows lower tire pressures which softens bumps and increases float on sand or snow. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the benefits of plus-size tires and rims will amplify your mountain biking fun.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
