    I don't know, call me old school but I just don't see removing the tires as a good way to save weight.

    My Specialized Enduro

    This my 2010 XL Specialized Enduro Expert. I upgraded the front fork to a Solo Air DH damper Totem 180mm. I added a red azonic outlaw wheel set. Vector R rear coil 600lb spring. I also machined and welded custom braces on the rear shock links (not in photos) for added stiffness. Sram XO drivtrain and Avid elixir cr brakes. This is the freeride enduro build.

    I kind of like it in white. It makes those huge 40mm stanchions stand out. Did you catch the moustache on the front of the fork? There are some pretty unique stickers on that thing.

    The bike would be unridable without them. The links for the air shock that originally went on this bike had some really beefy links. Then Specialized did what they do and messed up on the design of these evo links by not adding any beaming? strength. If you saw the links side by side you would know exactly what im talking about. So me being 6"4" 220Lbs without gear and a very aggressive rider puts a pretty big toll on my bikes. The evo links would bend on any jump and that bend would then force those bearings out of place. I tried reloctiting the bearings with the green bearing retainer, but that did not do the trick. So the only solution left was to beef up these links and by doing this it stopped all bend at that area. I was very hesitant on doing this though because i did not know if these pieces were cast aluminum. Because cast aluminum might warp when being welded due to the heat. But it all turned out fine and the bike is stronger than ever! It was funny, i took the bike into my LBS wanting ask there opinion. Apparently the guy i talked to had his common sense removed for a while now because i spent more time explaining what was wrong with my bike than him giving solutions (zero to be exact). The bike shop is good for BIKE only stuff. Like wheel trues and things like that. But as soon as there is something like an engineering flaw they give you that "deer in the headlights" look. Sorry about the rant, but to answer your question, yes they make the bike much stiffer.

    OH. Kinda looked like one of those supermarket bike shocks... all because it didn't have the piggy back air/oil can that I'm used to seeing on coil shocks.
