    2013 S-Works Enduro Build Thread

    Well, since the time is getting close for delivery I thought I would start this off to help with fighting off the anxiety of waiting till December. Haven't been this pumped about getting a new bike in a while, and I have had quite a few...at least one new per year. UGI is a horrible disease. That and curiosity of wanting to actually ride the different designs and suspension offerings to see what feels best for my style!

    So, I'll be specing this build as follows:

    2013 Specialized Enduro S-Works (M) black/red
    2013 Rockshox Lyrik 170mm Solo Air w/Avalanche cartridge
    2013 Fox 34 Float 160 CTD
    Renthal duo stem 50mm
    Enve 28" wide DH bars
    XTR rear shifter
    ODI Ruffian lock on
    Kindshock Lev 125mm drop
    Specialized Henge Pro saddle
    Race Face SIXC carbon cranks
    Race PF30 Adaptor
    XT pedals
    E13 32 single ring
    E13 TR+ 1x10 guide
    XTR Shadow Plus medium cage rear der
    XTR chain
    XTR 11-36 Cassette
    Enve All Mtn rims laced to Red King Hubs w/DT Swiss Aerolite spokes
    XTR Trail brakes 183mm rotors
    Specialized 2.3 2Bliss Butcher frt tire
    Specialized 2.3 2Bliss purgatory/ground control/fast trak depending on conditions.
    Ti bolts on rotors, stem, any other non proprietary bolt

    Hopefully should be about 27-28 or less. Looking forward to it!

    I know. Now that I've posted it, it's almost more torture than help. But at least we can all share in our anxious waiting issues together!:-). Pics will be added as soon as it is in my possession!

    also put a photo with the frame in the balance!!!
    currently own a 2012 transition covert but this enduro 2013 tickles me, mainly because of its weight.

    Wow. That's an amazing write up of a build spec. Is that your build? Pretty cool. Had the Bos Deville and loved it but couldn't get any response from Bos so I sold it. Great build. Looking forward to seeing the real thing!

    I'm sure the sworks cranks are great, I just already have the Race Face cranks and I'm building this bike from the frame up. Some of the parts are coming off my Mojo HD.

    Just spoke with the Specialized Concept shop in San Diego I ordered my Sworks frame through. When I ordered the frame back in late July, the estimated date was Oct, then it went Nov, then Dec.

    The dealer site is now showing July on it, but the shop spoke to someone at Specialized on the phone who told them that there are 10 of the frames from the first run available (sounds like that run are all the ones we've been seeing in press camps, pro riders, etc, the second run won't have frames available until July... so since I got my order in so long ago, he said I will be getting mine from the first run, which will be shipping after the new year.

    Not the greatest news in the world, but at least it sounds like I won't be waiting till next summer.
    Have a nice ride!

    So they are only making 10 per run? If you would have to wait until July, might as well hold out for the '14.

    Was now informed that it will be the first week in January instead of the 23rd. And fortunately, I ordered mine in June and from a shop that has high priority with Specialized so I'll be getting 1 of 8 frame only arrivals in the red/black combo. Blue/black combos are late Jan. Even more anxious now. Hurry!!!

    Beautiful. Is that the complete bike? The completes were early and I think frames were shortly behind those. Getting pumped for mine to get here...What is the little lever on what looks like the low speed compression hex on the CCDB air? Tell me that's a permanent solution for some sort of platform?? Was wondering if they were gonna ever do that? Awesome if so!!
