    05 or 06 S-Works Enduro Frame

    Is there any difference besides shock? How is that 5th Element anyways? Thanks

    I have heard the 5th is a leaker and has all around poor durability. I have never ridden one tho. I have an 05 sworks ano black w/the DHXA that Im selling if your interested. Its a small in very good shape.

    I have had both, nothing wrong with the 5th, in fact its a great shock on my first bike it didnt lose air all summer and winter, allways relaible. my second enduros 5th was doa, I sent it to progressive and got it back in 3 days been working fine ever since. while it was gone I ordered a fox dhx5.0 (just in case) but still havent used it

    $325 slightly used from MTB classifieds, you will need different conical washers though the 5th are too thick, fox will set you up. I would read about all the stuck down problems people are having with the fox though, before I bought one. Also the enduro dhx is special it doesnt have the bottom out air valve.

    ya I heard the waher kit is 20, was just curious about the cost of a dhx. Do you know what the enduro dhx runs new or where to gt one?

    nah, for $20 you get the washers & a rebuild kit, the washers are like $4 but shipping will more than double it
    new dhx air go fro about $479 + shipping, you might have to go to a Spec. dealer for the enduro model or fox . there are tons for sale on ebay & mtb classifieds, just be patient
    like I said though the 5th is great, I weigh 220 and ride all mtn. & agressive xc and it never needs adjusting once dialed in. If you do alot of jumps & drops you may want to get a coil, the dhx coil is $379 new
