    Nothing above the Comp/Comp Carbon level has been listed for any MTB line (We've received no information about any 2013 Stumpjumper HTs, Enduros, or Cambers).

    As previously stated, Specialized will be doing a release event the second week of July. Although, I'm sure some info will leak before that.

    Still looking at the new 2013 Carves - a LBS can order a '13 Carve Comp to arrive next week, but I'm looking seriously at the '13 Carve Expert. The Expert isn't in the early release catalog, but since a mockup and specs have leaked online, I'm wondering if it will be part of the announcements in the 2nd week of July. Should I wait a couple more weeks to see what the timing will be on the Expert ... or just go for the Comp now? Part of me thinks it's worth it to wait for the Expert ... but I'll be kicking myself if I wait for it ... just to hear it won't be out until fall.

    nope, sorry. no internal cable routing... they should have rally done that. the stumpy in my LBS has the cables pretty looe even. but that's an easy fix, and not a deal breaker for me...

    Hi guys, I need to make a decision today, I am thinking about getting a specialized enduro evo but trying to decide if I should wait till the 2013 models come out to see what they look like.
    Has anyone got a link to the 2013 models?

    I'm too new to post links - but Google 2013 Specialized Carve - then, on the nubuk-bikes web site, select Twenty Niner on the left - you'll see the Expert listed there (both color options)

    ... if those colors (2 tone black) and specs (Reba fork, etc.) are accurate, that's why I would hold out for the Expert

    Everyone is talking about the Epics or the Stumpys. But where's the Camber? Are there any changes for 2013?

    I've been searching high and low on craigslist and at my local LBS. So far I want to spend about 1000 for my first bike ever and the 2013 hardrock 29er disc looks good to me for $619 from my LBS.

    Strangely enough I found a 2001/2002 Specialized FSR Enduro 17" on craigslist for $300. Which would be the better buy guys? A new bike that's already released or the enduro?

    If the pictures on the web of the 2013 Carve Expert are accurate, that is one hideous color scheme (cyan/orange/black).

    Called 3 specialized concept stores today and asked when the Carve 2013 will be out in the UK and they all said they didn't know but uk stocks of the 2012 as still good so don't expect it until late August at the earliest.

    Might be too late for me so looks like its the 2012 expert for me. Hope the spec on the 2013 isn't too much of a difference.

    I'm sooo happy to see that they are once again putting "Specialized" on the sides of the down-tubes. I never liked the 2012 where you could only read it if you were sitting on the bike!

    The 2013's look nice but I'm superstitious and only buy even year bikes.

    My LBS tells me that the Stumpjumper FSR, Stumpjumper HT and Epic will NOT have new frames this year. Just component changes.
    I thought that the HT may get a new frame but apparently not. He has always told me correctly previously so it looks like fewer redesigns across the brand this year.

    A good design is a good design, period. If the technology hasn't advanced as fast as it did the past years, there is no point in redesigning the frames in the first place. Better to skip a year, take time to develop and test thoroughly and pop-up with something nobody saw coming

    It would be nice if they would move away from all the dark color combos this time around....It seems every single 2012 bike had black somewhere on it.

    Love that bike! My LBS has a 2012 I am close to pulling the trigger on, but the 2013 is giving me pause.

    Yeah, the Comp model looks sexy, but the Expert is so retro I'm waiting on it too, unless the Pro model or Stumpy Evo HT for the new year can sway me otherwise.

    Just sharing these pics I took with my cell today at the LBS. Both Stumpjumpers had the 15mil thru axle. Unsure what the difference of the Comp 1 and 2 mean but that's what the tag listed them as.

    Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er 1 size medium







    Epic Comp 29er size large





    Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er 2 size large

    I don't trust those leaked german specs. My reasoning is why would specialized change the seat post diameter from 2012 - 2013? The 2012 expert > 2013 comp even with the recon gold vs silver due to nicer shimano components, wheels, and tires. I'm guessing the weight on the 2013 comp will be slightly higher than the 2012 expert as well. If it were my choice for 2013 bikes I would pick the 2013 pro but it remains to be seen what is on the 2013 expert.

    What difference in wheels is there from 2012 and 2013? Where are the 2013 Pro specs listed at?

    I'm leaning towards the Pro. I'm sure the 2013 Pro is going to be awesome but it will be out of my price range. The specs are part of the early release, so they're available, but maybe it's a typo. Good feedback on the weight and Shimano components. Thanks!

    Should the 2x10 factor in?

    WHat a shame. Still no 15mm thru axle???? Just uograded my fork to thru axle and tapred steer tube.

    the difference is night and day. I even had a dt swiss 9mm rws up front.
    I agree. The BMC SF29 I've been riding this year has one and I've been super impressed by how much difference it makes in the front end. I have been thinking about getting an Epic this fall but the lack of a thru-axle fork is really turning me off. I'm hoping we'll see it on the Expert level, but I doubt it. Specialized touts their OS28 end caps to have even better stiffness than the 15mm axle, but even if true the problem is getting hubs with those endcaps. I would much rather run my ~200gr lighter Stan's Crest wheels than the stock Roval Controls from the Expert, but that would put you right back to a regular QR front wheel and lose all the stiffness. I'm not sure I'd want to give that up.
