    Both available through local bike shops. Unfortunately i can only ride them around the car parks, sizing is good and they both feel great in comparison to my current HT. I am sure either as a good choice for price but wanted thoughts from more experienced riders.

    I'd go for the Cube.

    Slightly better Shimano spec (XT shifters and rear mech) and if the figures are to be believed, it weighs 14kg. It is also 2x11 rather than 2x10 so you could change to 1x11 in the future a bit easier if you wanted to. Both have a dropper and can rub tubeless tyres. The Cube also has Conti Trail Kings and they are great tyres.

    Try it first to make sure it fits then buy it.
    Ride, crash, replace.

    Cube Xt shifters and rear mech are nothing to get excited about. Its 2x 11 and doesnt say the rear mech has a clutch.
    Id take the trek everyday of the week.

    Id take the trek as well. I haven't ridden the Cube but for some reason every time I ride a Cube bike I don't like them. I've ridden a higher spec remedy and loved it. Felt very well put together and could handle way more than I could throw at it in the Peaks.

    The only thing I would say is the Remedy is more of a downhill bike than say a TREK Fuel so be sure to buy something that suits your riding. I found the Remedy slightly hard work on the flat and up hills compared to say a more trail orientated bike.
