The Remedy is an AWESOME bike. I rode a 2013 Remedy 9.8 for about two hours at a factory demo and I've had a crush on it ever since. More like a love affair, actually.

It's built around the same suspension design as the Fuel (Full-Float, EVO Link, Active Brake Pivot, the works) but has more travel.

What is the purpose of having a seat that is adjustable while riding..? You can push a button on the left side of the handlebar to raise and lower seat while riding..

Those dropper seat posts are awesome. You keep it up under fairly normal conditions so you can sit properly, and then you put it down when terrain gets rough or you're doing downhill so your seat doesn't get shoved up your butt when you hit a drop or big rock or whatever. I'm going to be putting a dropper post on my bike sometime.
