    2013 Enduro sizing vs Ibis Mojo HD

    Quick question for the 2013 Enduro owners:

    I'm looking to pick up a 2013 S-Works Enduro soon and wanted some feedback on sizing; specifically from those of you that have ridden/owned the Mojo HD. I'm 5'10" w/ a 30" inseam and currently ride a large HD with a 180mm fork / 60mm stem (perfect fit for me). A quick comparison of the geometry charts indicate the large Enduro to be the right size choice; however, a Specialized rep suggested that I select a medium enduro. Not really sure if I'll get a chance to sit on a 2013 Enduro before I buy. Thank you for any feedback you can provide.

    I'm 5'11 w 32 inch inseam.

    I've been running large Enduros with a 50mm stem.

    I would describe the fit as borderline between M & L with the rider's preference of a short tossable bike or a longer/short cock pit being the choice.

    My preference is the long/short stem.

    Not real extensive or long test ride, but I am 5'10" with 31 ish inseam, test rode the enduro expert and it felt great in medium. Real easy to manual, wheelie, and bunny hop on. With the seat post up, I felt strong with a full pedal stroke. The large might give you better stability downhill, but the bike felt good to me in a medium

    you should compare the bike FIT only by looking at the REACH.
    This is the only meaningfull measure.

    Good question.

    Yes... but more at speed due to the longer wheelbase.

    On a side note, the short chainstays make the bike very maneuverable for the class on tight single track, and pretty playful in general.

    Like 20.100 FR wrote, check your current reach measurements and compare against the different size Enduros. That should help.

    I'm in the same boat here. 5'10 and a bit, with no shoes on.
    I've had 3 hd's, 1 med and 2 large. I'm just about to get a medium enduro.
    The numbers suggest it should fit right.
    The tt and seat tube on the med enduro is shorter than the large hd but reach is 25mm longer, wheel base is longer too.

    I am 5'11" and 31 inseam.

    Tough call and was hard decision for me as well. You can make the cockpit feel the same on either bike at this height. It boils down to do you want a more nimble, shorter wheelbase? Or a more stable, longer wheelbase.

    I ended having to demo both on a trail, and not in the lot, back to back (large with a 60mm stem instead of 75mm). Ended up going with the medium. They both felt equal or close enough in stability, but the medium did feel a tad more nimble.

    Just noticed the date of this thread! Anyway

    I know it's not an Enduro but you can look at the numbers.

    5 10/32" went from a large HD to a Large Stumpy Evo 29er.

    On the medium the top tube felt too cramped for me.

    Quick update.
    Even though the reach on my medium is larger than my large hd and large nomad c, I've sold the med and i am now on a large 2014. It's long!, especially with 27.5 wheels and 170 forks but I'd prefer to live with this instead of the medium.

    The confusing numbers with spesh come from that seat tube mounted soo far infront or the bb which gives a short tt and pushes you over the front of the bike.
