    WHAT SIZE do I need. I am 5'9". I think a medium but when I went to the geometry chart I saw they shrunk the top tube from the 2010 and 2011 tope tube on the enduro for the 2013. I had the 2011
    sworks enduro and it was a perfect fit with a 60mm stem..... I am scared to get a medium because it is 20mm shorter on the top actual top tube measurement. What is the better length to look at the actual or the horizontal length? Should I get a large or the medium?? Please let me know your thoughts.... I am stressing out over this

    I'm 5'11" and the medium for me with 60mm stem is perfect for XCish and 50mm for more aggressive AM type. I guess it all depends on your torso/reach etc... I have always ride medium when I was on the border just for the quicker handling and agility.

    Like SV said it was pretty simple. I used a different approach. I just used an L shape Allen key(3mm) and before pushing housing through put it above the exit hole. Hen the housing protruded I simply pulled down on the Allen key and that was it. Another friend I spoke to made a loop with an old spoke and ran the housing into that and pulled it down. So there are a few ways to go about it. All in all very simple.

    I too have alway been on a medium however I was looking at a ibis mojo and it seemed to short and cramped and I had a carbon Nomad and it was almost to short, ( there is no way I could have ran a 60 or 50 stem on it and that is what I like) My torso is paportinate to my lower legs of a 30 31 inseam.

    That's what they are listed as, but I have ridden them hard in some of North Georgia's most demanding terrain at speed through some serious babyhead rock gardens, rocky creek crossings, and pushing hard through corners. The new Rocket Rons tread is actually quite aggressive and has great traction. The Racing Ralph has a nice predictable drift/breakaway that makes for nice cornering but pretty decent traction until it gets a little wet. Then it can be underwhelmed. At 28-30psi rear under hard cornering no squirmy feeling. I have a nobby nic 2.4 w/Trailstar as well and honestly it does have better front traction and damping properties, but for the terrain around here, unless im doing a Super D, or heading to Pisgah, this combo with the lower rolling resistance is working great. I have the butcher as well and fast trak combo that I like too, but you can feel the extra weight of the butcher on long rides and the new Rocket Rons cornering is quite impressive.

    Nothing beats real world testing, so just because it's listed as XC, doesn't necessarily mean it can't blur the lines of aggressive XC/AM riding. The life may be shorter lived with how I ride it, but the combo is treating me right.

    got your point. I have been riding Rocket Rons for 3 years now in CC races. Great under dry conditions but there are better alternatives in mud/rain at least as front tire.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! yea...have to agree....I used the NN 2.4 SS on frt and 2.2 RR SS on rear of my stumpy evo and they were HORRIBLE

    IMO...even in the SS the sidewall is still too thin

    What do you run for trail in the wet? Do you have a spare set of wheels that keep a different tire setup handy?

    Really is all about the majority of riding you do. My enduro is 26.3 lbs and climbs better than my Mojo HD that was 28.7lb DW link. Granted thats 2.5lbs weight loss, but the actual traction and efficienct increased also. I was able to climb this one techy section 3 for 3 times, where in the past i was 1 for 5. Real workd proof...for me at least. That's both bikes at 28% sag no platform on either. Although the DB Air has a 4 click add of LSC adjustment it knocks the edge off just enough to provide a nice feel when pressing hard up hill. If you want more pedal efficiency run 25-26% sag, but then you are starting to firm up a bike that was intended to go go down fast and you slightly compromise that aspect of its performance. You won't go wrong with either the stumpy or enduro. One will be lighter than the other and blue the lines between descending confidence and climbing efficiency.

    Have any of you guys had any issues setting up the XX1 derailleur? Mine is working and shifting fine, but it feels like I'm getting a sound in the middle gears like it is wanting shift up or down. I can remove it a little with the barrel adjust, but then there is a slight compromise in one direction or the other direction of shift. Almost a slight delay due to the cable tension. I followed the setup instructions to the T. Setting the B tension was a list different than any other detailleur. So I may just start over with that.

    Again, it is working great even with this small little hiccup. Could be a little cable stretch occurring too. Just wanted to see if anyone else had ran into this while riding.

    What size headset cups does the Enduro frame take? Looked on the Specialized site but it was vague. Looking to use an angle adjustable headset to slacken it to around 65 degrees. Thanks!

    Not sure. However, I may be wrong, but I don't think you can run an Angleset with this frame since it doesn't use cups that would interface with the gimble (ie.Cane Creek-style) that allows you to adjust the head angle. I would check with them and Specialized first to protect your frame.

    How you guys liking the 34 on the front? Contemplating ordering a float 36 for my build but do have a 2013 34 float I could put on her. Just wondering if in very rocky terrain ie Colorado if your feeling the front end isn't up to task to keep up with that rear end? Thanks for input

    I haven't noticed any issues with fore/aft flex. Tracking on rough N. Georgia rootu/rocky terrain has been just as confidence inspiring as my Lyrik/36's I've owned. The lower weight helps too. I'm actually getting an Xfusion Slant to try ad well to see which one feels better damping wise. I'll post some reviews once it comes in mid to late Feb

    Is it safe to run a 180 Fox Float on this bike. I know Specialized says you can only go up by 10mm from the amount of rear travel (165mm) but has anybody done it and will the frame handle it? I would only do it when I take the bike to a mountain bike park like Whistler or Trestle and Keystone then go back to the normal 160 fork.

    Just do it ! If anything happens to your frame, nobody will ask for the fork length.

    Any of you S Works owners care to post a photo with better lighting of the upper shock eyelet? There is one early in this thread but the lighting isn't good, can't see the eyelet.

    I would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    I asked the question as saving for a frame and thinking on using my 180mm TALAS and got told it will defo void warranty plus the bike will be way to slack.

    The bike might handle it though but I think only a handful of people have been able to get their S-Works therefore, no real feedback might be found on the interwebs.

    Yeah, do it as Specialized will be so dumb to see the broken frame and not work out the cause of it.

    New question here.

    Beautiful bike you have. I'm getting mine built very soon.

    I have problem finding info on the headset compatible with the frame, so I'm curious what headset do you use for your build?

    Thanks so much

    Hey Intenseman, I have a stock '13 Enduro and it comes with an MRP Chain Guide. I was thinking about taking it off because it seems like the XX1 doesnt need it. Have you had any chain dropping problems?

    Is the steer tube (head tube) on the new S Works enduro regular like a normal bikes bottom of the head tube? Meaning when you take the fork off is it normal like other bikes and forks or is it like past enduros were you need a special type adaptor thing to put on the fork to change forks? I had a 2011 enduro S Works and I had to buy and utilize a certain adaptor on the fork I put on it. Please let me know. Thank you

    Hey there what width BB/cranks are to be used with the S-Works frame? I have my frame ordered and I'm hoping to run Shimano cranks with the Raceface PFBB30 adapter. I presume I'll need the 68/73mm cranks and adapter (i.e NOT the 83mm one). Cheers.

    I am playing the waiting game on many things at the moment as well.
    Thus far I've got most of the build figured out, but had to recently change my plans instead of waiting for Chris King to produce an xx1 driver... Initially I was told it'd be April and I'd have one in my hands, but nope... Anyhow, the build is as follows. still deciding what to do wheel wise...

    Red frame, size Large( wanted blue, but that would have been late March-apparently 1 went into the UT distro, but it was already paid for... Perhaps it's the one in this thread...)
    E160TA currently running, and still love this fork. Passively looking for a Durolux or a Vengeance as I'd like to try them out...
    Sixc crankset, and rf ring
    xx1 shifting
    XTR trail brakes
    Enve Bars
    Thomson stem, looking at one of the new twenty6.
    Reverb dropper

    Wheels are looking like the Flow-ex on 350's. I've had the 240s, and don't have the spare $ to drop on them at the moment... Would have been nice if I could have kept my Chris King on Roval Carbon rims, but couldn't handle the wait...

    Anyone tried throwing 650b's in their frame? I'm going to check clearance today and see if it's a possibility.

    Oh, and my frame weighed 6.46 lb with the shock and seatpost clamp, on my ipad so i don't have the picture of it. Spesh didn't send all the parts I needed initially, as it's a warranty replacement.

    Cheers

    Has anyone built theirs up with Shimano/Race Face cranks, or anything that requires a PF30 BB adapter to 24mm spindle? How is the chain line coming out?

    I saw Keene's bike with a stealth reverb, it looked like the routing was down the down tube, under the bb then into the frame somehow...anyone know how?

    Likely just a hole drilled above the bb, I've seen a few people do this on Alu frames. It voids warranty for all is regular folks, maybe it's an addition on the 2014 frames.

    Here's what the "Recommended settings for the Enduro" card say:

    I think it said to start with roughly 75 psi and check sag there.

    recommended sag 19mm

    Compression:
    HSC: 1.25 turns from open
    LSC: 4 clicks from open

    Rebound:
    HSR: 3 turns from open
    LSR: 10 clicks from open.

    Hope that was what you wanted.

    Thanks. I just picked mine up today, and it came with a settings card from Cane Creek.

    I am really amazed at how well the S Works package and peripherals are put together. Really impressed. I'll post some photos once I get it built.

    QUESTION: What is the threaded hole right next to the chainstay pivot on the lower seat tube drive side for. I know it is not a ISOG screw hole??

    It's for an s3 mount of a chain guide or front derailleur. The e-type xcx guide from e-13 fits perfectly into that system.

    JimEG, I'm liking your build. I have something similar coming along myself. What's the deal with the 2mm offset bushing (is it a stock part)?

    You can get them on eBay. Not a stock part. I got lucky. I had one left over from my HD and it was a perfect fit.

    You are welcome! I've been buying bikes from Dave and Center Cycle for over 10 years. He always has the good bikes and the service is top notch. Glad that worked out for everybody.

    Due to the nature of the Specialized warranty and the fact that I've logged only a few rides on my new frame, I took it to my shop for inspection. Their mechanic informed me that the upper shock bushing is worn out and qualifies as a warranty repair. Hopefully the replacement bushing fixes the problem. Let me know if any of you experience the same problem.

    Thanks for following up. That kind of wear is actually common to all suspension bikes and a minor repair. Cool to hear Specialized took care of it.

    I kinda agree. I guess i was trying tomsay that it is not common for bushings to wear out in 6 rides. Had I been riding my bike regularly for 3 months then it would be expected wear. At least that was the experience I had with my old nomad. Keep an eye on your rig and let us know if you experience the same problem.

    I missed the 6 ride part. That is premature.

    I have actually changed mine to a different 2mm off set bushing to slacken the bike and lower it a little.

    I'll keep an eye on it and follow up if it wears prematurely(not that Specialized would be responsible for this aftermarket one).

    Good question. I dont think it is possible without drilling the frame though. Would like to here if anyone else knows.

    Has anyone else tried a standard Reverb and then tried the internal routing where the Command Post cable went? I couldn't get the Reverb hose through the exit hole at the top. Too tight. Considering drilling it out a little bit. Had to tape the hose to the top tube. Not so clean of an install. Going to call Specialized first. Not a fan of the Command Post.

    Not possible to use Reverb Stealth without drilling the frame (like Curtis Keene S-Works)


    Possible to use Reverb classic (juste file the hose hole 4mm to 5mm)

    Yeah, Unless you want to void your warranty, the stealth isn't an option. However Jagwire makes a hydro cable of a smaller diameter so if you switch that out for the regular reverb cable it fits perfectly. That's what I had to do. I'm also debating getting a LEV later on to have 6" of dropper, and a stationary cable.

    The s-works weighs 6.46 lb, size large with axle, shock, and chainstay protector. Don't know how much the non-S-works model weighs...

    the one I saw looked like he ran the hose through the top tube and out the normal dropper post entry/exit point near the headtube.

    Hi,

    I'd like to ask you happy Enduro owners a question, I need your help :-)

    I want to buy an Sworks frame and I have a short torso and long legs.
    I'd need 27,5cm of seat post (measured from top of the seat tube at frame to the saddle rails) showing on a large frame. Is that possible with a Command Post or would I need a 420mm Reverb or something alike.

    If I explained that not good enough, maybe you could tell me, what the minimum insertion for the seat post on a large carbon Enduro frame is (cm, mm or inch is fine)

    I could then determine if I could get away with a large frame with my inseam of 36.6".

    I appreciate any help.

    Thanks a lot,
    Znarf

    Hi Stumpynerd,

    I am "only" 6ft,but my legs are really long. My torso is short, my arms are long again though. Like an Orang Utan.

    I currently ride a 2011 Stumpjumper FSR 29er in size XL.
    The 530mm or 21" seat tube is quite good for me, with a 125mm Reverb post about 1inch of post is showing under the Reverbs seat collar.

    The top tube is a little long for me though, I use a 30mm stem.
    For a more aggressive bike I'd like a smaller fit though.

    The Large Enduro and its 617mm TT looks perfect. Just the seat tube is a little on the short side for my physique.

    I guess I'll get away with a 425mm post though. Just don't want to damage the precious carbon frame...

    Greetings Znarf

    I ordered the same guard from Leoseven but it came with no instruction. Would you be kind enough to share how to fit one on the frame? And the sticker you got.

    How many Spacer did you guys need to install the XX1 Crankset into the PF30 BB?
    I have three manuals and all say different things...
