    08 S-Works Enduro, 2010+ Enduro Expert

    Ok im stuck between both of those bikes. I've rode an expert before, and I love it. I like how the new frames look and everything, just not loving the weight.

    I see the 08 SWorks bike weighing in around 28lbs give or take. And it has good components, so I wouldnt have the need to upgrade anytime soon. The problem is I've never rode 08, 09 Enduro.

    What do you guys think ? Any imput would be helpful!

    If weight really bothers you that much (like it does some people), then you will choose the 08 Enduro no matter what.

    If I were you I would read the plethora of threads in this forum comparing the old Enduro SL to the current Enduro. The general consensus seems to be that the new Enduro is a little burlier, heavier built, more suited to downhill but still kills uphill.

    I'd love to try one out, I have an SL and it's great, but wouldn't think twice about trading it for a heavier built model.

    It doesn't bother me that much because my XC bike weighs in at 32lbs. But just the thought of having a 28lb AM bike is very cool

    If you already have an XC bike then I'd go for the 2010 Enduro, as this one is slightly more towards the burlier end of the AM scale I reckon you'd cover more ground with those 2 bikes.
