    Dont forget the all sexy black one! I really thought we would see a 650b enduro first though.

    Any idea how much travel this bike will have? StumpJumper FSR EVO 29er is 140mm up front with the 34 and 135mm in the back. Is Fox putting out a longer travel 29er fork next year? Maybe 150mm or 160mm in a 34 or 36 chassis?

    It would seem kind of redundant if this bike had 140mm of travel front and rear with the current StumpJumper FSR EVO 29er. Or is the idea to have a stiffer bike with slacker and more aggressive geometry?

    Sounds pretty much spot on. Specialized tends to build their 29ers with 10mm less travel than their 26er counterparts. The 26 inch Enduro has 165mm in the rear, so 155mm makes sense.

    I wonder if Fox is coming out with a 150mm or 160mm 29er 34 or 36 or maybe a custom one for Specialized. I could definitely see a 29 150mm 34 from Fox. Possibly even 36 to deal with the increased flex you may see in a long travel 29er fork.

    SRAM is coming out with a 160mm 29er fork this year with 571mm a2c. (discussed in this thread)

    I was talking to a mechanic at my local specialized shop and he said there would be a 650b for 2014 late summer. I think he was pulling my leg, a super long travel 29er doesnt make any sense to me.

    Wow those look like a lot of fun! So has Specialized decided that kashima is marketing rubbish? And no dropper post?

    They only put Kashima on their top of the line models like S-Works.

    150mm fox 34 forks are available in 29er variant since last year. Also the rock Shox revelation can be had with 150mm already.

    I don't know if the Enduro 29er has a 150 or 160 fork though.
    I guess 150 would be plenty though...

    I'll buy one in fall. Yummy, yummy.

    Greetings Znarf

    I know specialized is committed to the 29er, but I really thought we would see a 650b enduro first.

    The frame on this looks really similar to a stumpy frame to me, I know it probably rides totally different, but attach that shock to the top tube, and remove that x brace shock mount, and i swear I have seen that frame before.

    I just re-checked. The Revelation doesn't come in 150, only in 26".
    The Fox did for 2012, look it up on their Service site:

    hey znarf
    if i get it right, this sheet is just for spare parts. i'm pretty sure, there was never a 34 available in a 150 version. have you ever seen one, or know one who has? - just wondering....!

    No,
    I've not personally seen one, just this e-speculation. There are some threads on mtbr.com about this very topic though.

    Also, Magura has a 159mm travel 29er fork, measured and tested by the German BIKE mag.

    The 2013 fox 34 29er forks only come in 140mm, you can buy a couple of little spare parts directly from fox though which convert it to 150mm.

    I bet for 2014 you'll be able to buy several 150mm 29er aftermarket forks...

    430 mm chainstays 155mm rear travel 29er? Now that's old Specialized way. Bravo. The only question I have - will they make XL?

    Don't want to derail the thread but in that 29er video, I see an adjustable seatpost I don't recognize.
