    I’m looking to buy a new bike but I can’t deside between these two. They are almost the same in price but pretty different setup. Now I’m riding 2016 superior xf 907

    Not sure which would be best, but there is probably no wrong answer here. Have you ridden both? I will say that my 2018 Stumpy AL Comp has exceeded my expectations. It is REALLY good.

    Mountain Bike Action just did a review of the 2019 Remedy.

    Edit:  Well, delete that. It was if the 9.9 and you’re looking at the 8.

    I have a Remedy 8 and really like it. The ride will feel likely very different between the two of them due to the different suspension platforms, though geometry looks similar-ish, with the Remedy being a bit more on the aggressive side of things. I moved from a 2017 Reign to my Remedy and notably, it’s not quite as fast on the descents, but feels more composed & precise. It climbs very well indeed.
    I would definitely rather have the SLX brakes on the stumpy, but brakes are cheap. The GX eagle drivetrain on the remedy is great once you’ve got it set up nicely. I feel like for advanced riders, the Fox Rhythm grip damper forks leave a lot to be desired in terms of damping, whereas the Lyrik on the Remedy is an excellent fork.
    Wheels on both are not great…
    Better dropper on the Stumpy.

    It’s a tough call for sure, and depends what you want out of the bike and if you plan to make upgrades!

    If I’m looking at the right Trek (Remedy 8), it is $1000 more than the Stumpy… One could do a few fun road trips to distant epic rides for a grand. Just sayin.

      The Remedy is $400 NZD more than the spesh ($250 USD?) and has a better spec, in my opinion.

    They are closer in price than I first thought. Apparently Specialized has had a price increase since the 2019s hit the market because the original 2019 AL Comp was $3k. Glad I got my 2018 closeout at $2400. The 12 speed cassette might be nice though.

    Remedy 8, $3999. (there are cheaper Remedys than the 8).

    Stumpy, $3320.

    Thanks you for replying guys! Im not an advanced rider not a beginner either somewhere in-between. I’ll go with the stumpy I think. I like the looks and hope the fork will do great.

    The Fox Rhythm 34 is a great fork for reasonable coin. Love mine. Here’s a link to MBAs test.
