Are you using Slime filled tubes with wire bead tires? That is a great build, but I can't understand where all the weight came from.

The post and seat are probably about 500 to 700 grams and the wheelset I bet is well over 2200 to 2400 grams and wellco pedals are 500 grams. I am going to get a set of easton havens, I think and there only 1600 grams which 1.5 to 2 lbs lighter. I would hate to see how heavy it would have been with the coil stuff on it(37 ish!!!)

I think this will treat me good for the Crested Butte BME,
I feel like I ride enduro type terrain quite a bit and this bike has been kick ass!
Intense Carbine Frame
White Bros Loop front Fork
X9 drive train set up
Chromag bars and stem
Maxxis Ardent 2.4 on the front
Maxxis High Roller 2.3 on the rear
***A dog to motivate me to get out in the winter***
I'm bored and at work or else I would be riding
It's probably going to be a bit much for the Enduro's out here but it's what I got so it's going to be run!
On the plus side, it's not exactly heavy...
try and catch me
Longing for Spring
My Enduro Rig
2013 Tallboy LTc with a full XT Grupo. It's got the extra Kashima coating on the rear shock as well. DT Swiss 350 hubs laced to WTB Frequency tubeless rims. E13 bashguard/roller combo and a KS Supernatural 125mm dropper. This guy is right at 27 lbs.
Nice! Good to see The One in the mix. I should pull my finger and post mine up.

Edit - I can now see the scale reading, (now that I widened the screen) that's light for THE ONE!
Enduro Rig V 2.0...3.0 will include a different (lighter) front wheel, rear tire, and BBG.
Knolly Endorphin...custom green
Marzocchi 55CR lowered to 150mm
1x9 @ 34 x 11/34

Another Knolly for the mix:
Hoping to race a couple of the BME this season. Especially since the first one is in my home state!
"Mi amor Nuevo Miércoles!"
Wow a 23lb 160mm bike with a dropper post!! Do you have a picture of that on a scale?
Its a 29`er 140. Havn`t got a pic, but can take one next time i`m round the shop. We weighed the frame and shock to 2220g, Reynolds carbon wheels laced on Tune hubs 1420g, XX group set with RF next crankset, all ti bolts and formal carbon brakes. It weighed 10.1kg out of the box with tune seatpost and innertubes. I don`t think there is another factory made 140 29`er on the market with this weight at the mo. Hell, it weighs less than my XC bike

Have you spent time on the bike? If so, can you give us some details, and compare it to other bikes you have ridden? Thanks. I am considering getting this bike or the Stereo 160.

It pretty much goes against what an enduro /am bike should be feel like. Its really pedal efficient, so much so that i`ll actually be doing some marathon racing on it too.
One from Europe
Posted this in the all mountain thread until I saw this one which is far more relevant.
This is my brand new Enduro rig based around a Labyrinth Agile Frame and BOS suspension
Sold my Turner 5 Spot and just built up my new Chilcotin. Weighs about the same as the 5 Spot but will handle the rough even better. Ideally I would go even lighter and quicker for a pure Enduro rig but I'm going one bike for now and I need to cover a lot of ground. The Chili seems to be the answer.
2013 Race Rig
Built this up at the end of last year, looking forward to racing enduro around UT/CO this summer

Hey everyone, Im really getting into this Enduro stuff and just received my first sponsorship (one industries). With my sponsorship I get a deal on dimaondback and I was looking at the mission pro, from what i have heard its great and I wanted to know your guys opinion.
ride all day
Post your Enduro/Super D rigs here...
My friend has a mission. It is a very fun bike to ride downhill, however the frame is heavy for a 6 inch bike and it bobs quite a bit when pedaling. But if you have a deal, go for it, you'll get used to the bob of the knuckle box, try to make a light build out of it and it'll be a good fun bike.

[QUOTE=nissmo127;10092355]My new 27.5" Enduro rig I was going to sell it(due to injury over the winter) But I may just keep it now that I am healing up...It really needs a black fork and my Formula brakes put back on it!

My tarnsition Covert 26 2013
Here's mine. Only running one actual race this year as I'm focusing on endurance XC racing, but lots of training and riding it in Pisgah.
2011 Trek Remedy 9.9
- Revelation World Cup 150 or a Lyric coil 160 depending on trail
- XX1 (don't need no stinkin chain guide!)
- Elixir CR
- Flow EX with Ardent 2.4's
The only 2 things left to upgrade are the 710 aluminium bar to a 720+ carbon and a better dropper post, either KS Lev or Thomson, but the Gravity Dropper still rocks out.
Trek Slash 9, size XL. All stock except Deity composite pedals, WTB Weirwolf tubeless tires, seat off old Enduro, ODI Rogue lock-on grips and Easton Havoc 50mm stem.
making ideas into bikes
Hex AM ti/carbon 650b
The Hex running with a 10x1 set up, X9 Type 2 mech & shifter and a XX1 chainset. No need for a chainguide and with zero chain drop...

Ready to rock the Oregon Enduro Series starting 5-25-13
Renegade of Krunk
Just picked it up earlier in the week, love it! Coming from a commencal supreme that was probably sitting around 38lbs, this thing climbs like a billy goat. Will be hitting a BME stop or two this season, can't wait.
I'm not new to this, I'm true to this
upgrade, from the cannondale moto...down to a slim 33lbs.
2013 banshee spitfire.
2009 rockshox lyric u-turn
The frame finally arrived!
Norco Range Killer-B, built from a frameset, Vengeance HLR, Float R, XX1 32t cranks, 10spd X9/X0 gears, Arch EX wheels, XT brakes, Answer carbon bar, etc... Sums up to 13.7kg(30.2lbs), pedals and climbs amazingly well, especially when compared to my previous Covert V2. Also downhill performance is tons better than the covert... all smiles now...
Time to upgrade-

As a follow-up to our posts on the subject of dropper posts for Enduro racing - after my first OES season of racing, I can see how a dropper post may not always be beneficial. Glad I had one at Hood River and Bend, but probably could've ridden without one at Camas, Ashland, and Mt.Hood/Sandy Ridge. Jgusta - you're a great rider and after having competed against you in the two races you did I have much respect. Hope to see you out at more races next year. I'll still be running a dropper post :-) - Craig
