    Thanks for the info. Would you mind measure the the distance between the screw hole and the end of the protector piece?

    Do you have another link to S-Works graphic?

    Cheers

    Did that CF Gaurd come with the S Works graphic, or was that something you added? The website doesn't show it, but it looks super pro.

    The guard didn't come with the decor. Go to page 8, Intenseman was kind enough to share some instruction. You will have to drill the guard to fit it on the frame though.

    Very exciting!

    Can you tell me where I can find this hose, only 5mm on jagwire.com and the internal cabele routing allow 4,5mm

    Nice ride man!!! Be careful te carbon rail saddle. My failed immediately on a g-out and put a nice rip in my jacket and pretty serious cut on my chest. Could har been worse had it not been winter with a couple layers. Otherwise, that is a badass ride. Digging the blue!!

    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.

    as an FYI, it's doable. I've seen pics of a guy with a reverb stealth on his 2013, he has no issues with it thus far. He was able to route it out the bottom of the TT/ST junction then just the regular internal routing from there. I'll try to link pics in another post. Thought you all would want to know.

    hope this works

    All he did was widen the hole into the TT for the cable. I'm going to buy a stealth, and get a hydro kit from Jagwire, then try to get a 90˚ bend piece from goodridge, or someone in hydraulics and fit it to mine as well. Looks super clean.

    Technically its not a S-Works, but here is a few pics of my Enduro Expert Carbon...





    I went full XX1 on the drivetrain. I've upgraded the wheelset to the Roval Carbon Traverse Sl's, changed out the shock for the CC DBAir, and also added the KS Lev post. I have several more upgrades planned.

    This is from production and can be found in every carbon frame because it is very hard to get rid of this prod waste.

    But I'd like to come back to my question:
    S-Works combined with XX1, how many spacers do you guys have with your crank drive side?

    Hi all, just wanting to get an idea of what settings everyone is using for their DB Air. I'm about 85kg (187lbs) with gear, and running 120psi for 30% sag (19mm). Just running the Cane Creek base tune at the moment, but will be looking to tune it a bit more in the bike park next week.

    Initial impressions are the base tune needs perhaps a little less low speed rebound, and a little less low speed compression. Will report back with a bit more riding.

    Cheers,

    G.

    Not by the bike, but I believe it's the one thick spacer on the drive side. I'll do me check when I get home.

    I weigh 205 geared up and run 140psi to get 19mm sag. From the base tune I'm running an extra 1/4 turn on hsc and 1 less click on lsr. So far so good. Only had it for a week and its very different from the nomad I'm coming from (in a good way)

    I have only had my bike built up for a couple of weeks now. I am used to riding more xcish machines. I added another click or two to the LSC setting and backed off on the rebound a click. I am running 165psi to achieve the 19mm of sag.

    I still experience heavy bob when pedaling even when HSR and HSC are fully closed... Might be because of the 28t chainring??? Sag is properly set...

    Hsr and hsc have nothing to do with pedal bob. Pedal bob is a low speed event, so Lsc will effect it the most. Put it back to the recommended settings and flip the lever to add 4 clicks lsc. I have almost no pedal bob at all on mine with a 32t chainring and rarely use the lever because of it.

    Do you guys have your front sag set too? Here is a good article from bikeradar for setting sag on any bike. I get no bob when my sag is set properly, make sure you have your shocks/forks in open setting when you set your sag.

    Weird. And you are counting clicks from full open? (Counterclockwise is open) do they stop of keep spinning?

    Yes I am counting from fully open. Never tried if the knobs would stop spinning. Would it make any difference?

    When you purchase the BB you will get a few spacers, non of which are necessary. When you buy the crank it will come with 1 large spacer, run that on the drive side and you're off to the races. This is not counting the SRAM branded seal dust caps that go on each side of the BB bearings.

    Thank you, that is how I did it. Strange that my non drive side thing that you turn towards the frame just does not touch the frame...

    Does any one know what is is when I compress my rear suspension there seem to be a sticking point and then compresses more? I guess maybe like a bump or a friction point. It does not stop the compression but I defiantly feel something. I have never even ridden the bike yet. Does the shock just need to break in? Any advise would be great. Thanks

    or it might be the clutch style deraileur. Roll the cage forward so there is no tension on the chain and cycle the suspension. I had the same thing going on and it made me nuts thinking it was the bike, but it was just a slight clunk in the movement of the rear der.
    Have a nice ride!

    It's the XX1 RD. Both my SJ Evo with XX1 and my buddies Enduro S-works have the same noise feel. It seems like it is a common issue with the SRAM type 2 RD.

    Do not think it is the rear mech or any drive train issue.

    I am not even sitting on the bike when it does this or rollong the bike. It happens just by pushing doen on top the seat or bouncing my upper body weight on the bike. Rear Mech does not even move...

    there is no noise what so ever. Just a sticktion feel not huge but just on the 1st maybe 10mm of the push then it goes on to more travel as normal. I am standing and pushing down with my upper body on the seat.

    try pushing the arm on the RD forward. There is some tension before the clutch releases. When the suspension starts to move there is a slight amount of chain growth and it has an almost sticky feeling until the clutch releases. I notice it in the garage or on the street, but you dont feel it on the trail very often if at all.

    Your pivots could also need the be greased or the shock just needs to be broke in and the seals are a little dry.

    I help the rear cage all the way FWD so the chain was just hanging basicly, it still did it.

    Your pivots could also need the be greased or the shock just needs to be broke in and the seals are a little dry.

    It's the negative air spring. Don't worry about it, you'll never notice while riding since you'll sag the shock past that part of the travel.

    New S-works owner here. Bike is not quite dialed yet but getting there. I was curious if anyone knows about a shock shuttle that is available for purchase to drop the BB down a bit. Thanks in advance.

    Is anyone having problems with the dropper post cable rubbing on the DB Air Can? Mine is routed as short as possible, but it still rubs when the seat is lowered. I've covered it with a frame protector, but would like to avoid it in the future.

    yah, nothing you can do about that other than what you're doing. If KS LEV ever comes out with a setback remote post, I'd be the first to purchase it. That's the only reason why I hang onto the command post, the cable design is horrible.

    Have any of you been on an sb66c? If so how would you compare the two?

    Hi AaronJobe,

    I tested an SB66c for a weekend before I eventually chose the S-Works Enduro. One way I would sum up the differences between the two is that I would view the SB as being an XC'ers long travel bike, and the Enduro as being a DH'ers short travel bike. But in all honesty, this comment is more aimed at the SB arguably not being as gravity capable, because I find the Enduro to climb as good as the SB I tested (though different climbing characteristics).

    Please note that I am still in 'shakedown' for my Enduro, and working out my ideal suspension settings. I would say that pedaling is good on both frames, however; the SB I felt was firmer (almost hard-tail like) while climbing, though tended to get hooked-up on roots/rocks. The Enduro still climbs very well, doesn't get hooked up the same, and affords a bit more traction.

    The Enduro is my pick for DH ability. Plusher/more progressive, with much more tunability with the CCDB Air. I preferred the geo. for DH more on the Enduro too. I had issues blowing through all travel with the SB on small jumps/drops, with correct sag set, though I understand that a custom Fox tune on the CTD can help.

    Biggest reason I went with the Enduro over the SB is the geometry. The top tube length on the SB is extremely long. I tested a Medium SB which had the same length as most manufacturers similar Large frames. I felt the Medium SB was far too long for me (I'm around 5'9" tall), and I suffered on descents accordingly. I wasn't comfortable with the idea of riding a Small SB, though didn't get a chance to test one. For me, the geometry of the Enduro is much more conventional (though the front end was lower than what I was used to previously, I soon adapted and now love it), and feels really dialled for me.

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I'll try to answer them.

    Cheers,

    G.

    @aappling72 -- what size Mojo HD were you riding? I'm looking at picking up a S-Works Enduro and while the geometry numbers on the Specialized site look similar between the large frame Mojo HD and the large frame Enduro, I'd like an opinion from someone who has ridden both. The LBS in the area does not have an Enduro for me to check out and they have suggested a medium (I'm 5'10"). My current large Mojo HD has a 50mm stem and is perfect.

    I had the same noise coming from my 2013 S-Works Enduro, I deflated the DB Air and compressed the suspension to find the source of the clicking, it was the XX1 Derailleur. I called SRAM and they confirmed that it was an issue they have come across and it is caused by the chain being cut too short at install which results in too much tension on the Derailleur.

    To measure the correct length, I was told to run the chain outside of the Derailleur over the largest rear chainring, mark that link then add one more link and cut the chain there. Problem solved? I don't know yet...I will post my comments after I have tried this!

    I would love to see how this was done, can you post pics and get details on how he fed the cable through?

    Cyan frame Bought!!!!equally stoked.
    Just need to pick it up...

    Question, what headset is supplied with the frame?
    I will likely go with a 1-1/8 steer tube(non-taper) and need to know what lower race to buy to get it to work. Cheers.

    Wow, no one knows what headset comes with their frame?

    Best I can figure its an FSA, but a conformation would be nice. I've yet to receive my frame and I'd like to order a 1.5 to 1-1/8 headset reducer before it arrives.

    my wife bought the Enduro carbon expert and it looks like the cable rubs on the Fox shock too when the seat is in the low position. I was thinking I would just install one of these made by Jagwire to prevent the cable from dropping down. The wife and I are both gonna get KS Lev posts, so now it wont be an issue

    I figured I'd try mounting one of these on the frame just above the shock.

    So does that mean it needs to be ordered from a LBS in CO? Slim pickings! Looking for a medium though.

    The frame comes with FSA headset so there is no need to order another headset.

    2013 S-Works Enduro Build Thread

    I have been stoked on my s works enduro except for the fork...I have a 2011 fox 36 rlc kashima on it that i bought(nos), and coming from a lyrik on my last bike it sucks. Lots of brake dive, poor mid support, and will not come within an inch of full travel on any hit. I like the looks of the new pike but the 15mm axle concerns me as I am about 205 geared. So...are my concerns warranted? Is 15 mm going to make a difference? I am also considering getting my fox pushed but I think I may be throwing money at a turd. Opinions?

    Thanks.

    I'm not looking to buy a new headset, just thinking of running a straight steer tube not a taper. To do so, I would need to buy a different crown race.

    I have already contacted all those waaaaay back. The bikes are sold out. The just haven't removed the adds. I went through the trouble of contacting every single Spesh dealer here. Nothing. NIL. NADA.

    Just got a call from LBS offering me the 29er but don't want to buy before I try. I know the rave is huges but still, a lot of money to blow on a bike I haven't tried being such a bigh wheel.

    Yeah I thought that was probably the case. My lbs says they'll have the enduro 29 in store next week, I'm pretty keen to have a look at one of these bad boys myself.

    Have any of you considered buying an Enduro Expert Carbon bike in the Cyan color? The frame is the exact same carbon that's used in the S-works version. I know it doesn't come with the CC DBAir shock and all, but you could buy one aftermarket if you really wanted. Just a thought since the S-works Enduros seem to be sold out for the year.

    Aren´t the Expert frames Fact 10 and the Sworks Fact-11?

    Don´t know if there´s any real difference though.

    The frames should be the same. They are the same on the 29" Enduros as well.

    Thanks Finksta. Been talking to the seller for a bit already. Thinking about it and hopefully inspecting the bike next week.

    Gotta say that still prefer new and have the warranty on the frame.

    There are still full bikes available from Specialized, but framesets are sold out for the year.
    I picked up a medium S-works Enduro yesterday, but i'm selling the frame. My 2013 SJ was stolen and it was basically built identical to the s-works Enduro, so it was easiest to buy the Enduro and do a frame swap.

    Hi guys!!! Do still satisfy with your xx1 groupset???

    I have installed one GXP in my Enduro S-works 2010, with 32T chainring. Everything ok, but in steep climb when i need to use the 3 lowest gears I fell that the chain makes to much retention which implicate more strengh in the cranks. I stated that the cross chain in the 42 drive is much more than in the 10 drive. If increase the chain lenght when i'm on 10 drive, the chain get too large. I have already try to put the chainring closer to the frame but it isn't possible. I used to have 3 chainring and when i need the 22T with 32 drive everything is more fluid without strengh. I disapointed because I get earlier tired. Someone notice the same problem????

    So, I'm building my Enduro up and it feels like the rear end is clunking....track it down to the forward end of the CCDB Air. The mounting bolt is tight yet it feels like the bushing is gone....WTF?
