    2013 Enduro - coil shock and frame flex?

    Curious about the new 2013 Endruo S Works frame - stunningly perfect.

    Can a coil shock be run on it?

    I am coming off of a Mojo HD which had great BB and rear end stiffness - very little lateral flex. How would the new S Works Enduro compare?

    The Horst Link four bar suspension, low BB and super sporty short chain stays are what are drawing me to the new Enduro.

    Thanks for any help.

    If you are hucking off cliffs or a regular at a bike park or ar big boned & aggressive, I guess there would be some flex.

    I'm 185# and like to get rowdy from time to time on a 2010 Enduro with a QR rear with a 10mm bolt on (current models have 142+) and stiffness is a non-issue for me.

    Flex in the tire, yes. Flex in the wheel, maybe. In the frame, not so much.

    Cool, thanks.

    Would like to know if anyone has ridden an HD and the new Enduro(carbon) and how they compare in the stiffness department.

    Downieville? Very nice. I raced(rode) The Classic XC in 2007 on a SX Trail. Perfect bike for the downhill part of the course.

    Nope...December still. It's killing me! My Mojo Hd is great, but I'm aching to throw a leg over this new bike!
