    Yeap, there must be a problem with the frame or something. My expert carbon was loose from the get go and they replaced the bushing and it started to do it again. Even when they replaced the bushing there was still play in the front end of the shock but it also gets more play the longer you ride it.

    It appears as though the bushing is not being trapped by the frame when the bolt is tightened. I have it fairly snug, but I'm afraid to over tighten it.

    tsefreeflow, What was the end result?

    My wife has the Enduro Expert Carbon and doesn't have any issue....so of a sample size of 2, it is only happening in 50% of the frames....lol

    I'm sure the problem will get sorted out. Could be a pretty simple fix.

    Took the shock out of the frame and mounted just the reducer in the frame and it wouldn't snug up. Tonight I'll try the wife's bikes reducer and see if it works. Although hers has the fox and mine the CCDB.

    Took the bike to my local suspension guy who also happens to deal with Cane Creek stuff. He installed new mounting hardware and problem seems to be gone.....hopefully for good.

    Sweet bike. What travel is ur fork set at? I it light and how does it perform to a fox 34 or even a lyrics 170mm. Is it for more down hill or is it easily findable every were to include the ups. Last question does it make ur front end a little higher than say the 160 talas. Thank man I am interested in that fork or the lyrik RC2DH.

    I'm not a strong climber and I enjoy descending the most, so I wasn't worried about the extra A-C height and really liked the idea of a coil fork with low maintenance. The fork is not broken in yet but it still feels pretty good. Haven't ridden the other forks you mentioned but the 55 does feel better than my old 2010 36 Talas. The bike is only slightly higher than the stock expert enduro with the 34.

    @lipman:
    Wonderful build. I especially like the clean cable setup with the cockpit pipe.
    Is that a travel adjustable Lyrik?

    Pretty much my dream build, might need 2x around here though.

    Thanks! No it's the solo air 170mm. Have not felt the need to have a travel adjust fork on this bike so far. It's really just kind of a place holder till the new PIKE is avaliable though. The 28t chainring has actually been pretty good on the climbs and I have rarely spun it out.

    It started with an "Evil" thought...

    I have been riding a Knolly Delirium for the past 2 years and a Knolly DT for the 3 prior. It is a phenomenal bike! I absolutely love the fact that I can keep up with my buddies on their sub 30lb. trail bikes and then say good bye on the DH.

    However, it has become apparent to my buddy (also rides a Delirium) and I that our bikes are just too much for the stuff we ride 95% of the time. We ride in Santa Cruz, home of the redwood buffed, loamy, soft, mulchy, smooth trails with the occasional jump here and there. I'm not saying that there isn't big stuff to be had, just don't think I need the FR/DH capable bike that the Delirium is. We both have a Knolly Podium and there is a lot of crossover between the 2.

    Our Deliriums weigh in around 34lbs. and really pedal like less than that, a true testament to Noel Buckley's passion with his brand.

    In comes the Evil Uprising. This bike piqued our interest due to the geometry and the fact that it can be adjusted and ridden with a 160mm up front while having 150mm in the rear. Really was interested in this bike and my buddy is still in wait for his.

    During the wait for the Evil, the question of the S-Works Enduro came up and wallah, once I saw the numbers (my buddy is a scientist and really works the numbers -anti squat, brake squat, leverage ratios, etc) I was sold. I have a DB Air on my bike and I love it, so this was a bonus. Problem was finding one......arrrgh!

    Well, I found one and here it is. Super stoked to have a buddy who owns a shop and understands the customer's needs and is willing to work with them - Andrew @ Cyclesport in Scotts Valley, CA. I figure I'm losing 5 pounds, gaining a gear and I'm losing 2.5 mm of rear travel - up to 20 mm up front. I will miss the comfort that the Delirium provides, but I'm hoping this will be close. Haven't ridden it yet, built it last night with a more sturdy build than most but still weighs in at a respectable 29.5 lbs.

    The Build:

    (L) 2013 S-Works Enduro
    Cane Creek Double Barrel Air
    2012 Fox Float 36 - 160mm

    has anyone got any images of the clevis end of the shock - Im interested in knowing what shock options are available for the '13 Enduro. I'm assuming the stumpy can and does use the same clevis mounts? Anyone got a breakdown of coil / air shock options to save me repeating the research.....

    Nice, very nice. Is that fork the 160mm TA or the 170RC3? Any updated feedback on the climbing side of things since you have had more riding time on that monster?

    Sick of the poor performance on the 34 Talas so wanna go Zockes!

    Question for ya....

    I am having a clicking noise when I compress the suspension. I am reading this and, if I am correct, this might have to do with the RD tension? I thought it was the pedals or the seat or seatpost, but tried them all differently and it still happens. It is a clicking noise that appears to come from the linkage. I oiled the linkage and greased the shock bolt. I will call the LBS today and ask and try the lock-out of the RD method. It really only bothers me when I'm riding around the neighborhood.

    p.s. When I first had the bike I had too little slack under the frame and it was really clicking when I compressed, but I lengthened the loop under the BB and that went away. This is new and I've ridden it about 8 times.

    Thanks for your help.

    I had the clicking noise also from just pedaling, it sounded like it was coming from the non-drive side. Not sure what it was, I had to put a new brake line on so also lengthen my deraileur housing and took the crankset off and regreased everything. Thankfully, noise is gone. I'm hoping Spesh come up with a better cable routing system... The loop under the BB hasn't been a problem but certainly it's a eye-sore.

    I had that same issue on my stumpy. It was a loose upper shock bolt. Make sure you torque it to spec.

    The easiest way to check is to open open the RD and cage lock it and see if the noise goes away. If it does, its the clutch popping. If it does, its a loose bolt.

    It's the clutch! Not sure if this is good or bad?

    Easy fix! I had to adjust my xx1 RD and my x9 type 2. You will need a t55 bit to do it.

    Where the clutch is located there is a small smooth round black cover. Use the edge of a razorblade and pop the cover off. Under the cover is a t55 bolt. Remove that bolt. Underneath is 4mm bolt. put a wrench on that, and on the 3mm bolt on the backside and loosen/tighten the clutch. Dont undo the bolt since it is a pain to retension the spring in there.

    I found if you pull up on the lower part of the chain you can get a good feel for the clutch tension. Adjust it to the point that there is resistance but it doesnt "pop". backing off the tension will cure the noise and your suspension will feel smoother too!

    Here is a thread with pix.
    XX1 knocking/clunking

    Pretty much ignore the stuff about removing the clutch and greasing it. It doesnt last long. Adjusting the tension is what will fix the issue. The clutch sometimes will tighten up from use, so if it happens you just adjust it again. After you do one you can do it in less than 2 minutes.

    Is this the dual air one? Man, looks nice, I am waiting for my one, still haven't arrived in Australia but should have by end of the month hopefully. Was going to go for the black look but went for the white and after seeing yours, nice!! Very happy with my decision.

    now what really matters, how does it ride?? The PIKE I mean.

    The only thing that seems strange is it seems to sit lower in the front now with this fork compared to the fox 34. It is defiantly raked out more though. I guess the a/c length is shorter than the fox 34.

    So I've been looking into doing my own build of this S-Works carbon enduro frame, but was also taking a peek at the Enduro Expert carbon frame. They look precisely the same expect for the rear shock and the color scheme? Does anyone know off-hand if this is the only difference?

    The Pike looks like a rad fork. Maybe Rock Shox will lead the suspension branche for the next couple of years.
    Like they did with the original Pike xD

    Willing to part out just the frame and rear shock? That's all I need. PM me ASAP!

    EDIT: sorry, sorry. I spoke way too soon. Medium frame is far too small for me. I'm almost a borderline XL. GLWS!

    What's the official status with reverb NON stealth with the internal routing?

    I've seen some information about this floating around but haven't heard anything definitive.

    Just got my 2013 in blue as a warranty replacement and can't figure out a decent way to route my old reverb. Suggestions?
