    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.

    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.

    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...

    Aluminum Comp is already posted to the website: Specialized Bicycle Components

    I wonder when it will be available?

    The short stays are going to slay it!

    Going from 419 up to 430 with the chain stays. Bummer.

    Chainstay length is the best feature on the bike. They're 450 on the current Stumpy 29. 430 is almost unheard of on a full suspension 29er and should make it super playful. They're not discontinuing the 26 though if that centimeter is a dealbreaker.

    That centimeter would be a deal breaker - for a 26" wheel. If they are not discontinuing the 26" then it doesn't matter! 430 may be short for a 29er, but for a 26er it would make the handling mediocre. I'm amazed that 430 chain stays are something to get excited about. Good for the big wheel crowd apparently.

    Just curious - and what full suspension 26 inch bikes have CS shorter than 430mm (not counting Specialized and dedicated slopestyle bikes)?

    Not many - Banshee does. Most modern AM 26" bikes are right around 430(Tracer2 429, HD 435 for example). The 419mm chain stays and lower BB are what have made Specialized trails bikes handling so unique and good - the BB and CS geo details are the hallmark points of Specialized handling. Not that 430 is long - it is just mediocre - just what everyone else is doing. This applies to 26" bikes. 430 is apparently a magic mark to hit with the big wheeled bikes.

    430mm chainstays and 155mm rear travel in a 29er is unheard of, until now. So whereas it may be mediocre for 26, it's damn near groundbreaking for 29ers and no one else is doing it (yet). I loved riding my Lenz Lunchbox because it was super agile and overall fun bike. If I can get even more travel, shorter stays, DBair compatibility and carbon....sign me up.

    I'm hoping the sworks is available as a frame only. I wonder if the forks in that vitalmtb video are the rumored 160mm travel Rockshox forks?

    It's not showing up on Specialized's dealer site yet. I imagine it will be dropped when the rest of the 2014 stuff hits, but that's just a guess.

    Well, 27.9 lbs is the S-WORKS carbon weight. I'm interested in the M size alloy weight.

    I guess the Enduro 29er would be great on the rough stuff and down hills, but what about uphills? will the FOX 34 Float 150mm cause any difficulties going uphill due to the fact that this is a LARGE massive fork (as far as I know, it's the longest travel 29er fork today).

    Thanks, Mo.

    I don't know how much climbing ability (front wheel staying to the ground) is influenced by the short chainstays.

    My extra large Stumpjumper FSR 29er climbs like crazy with a 140mm 29er Revelation and a 30mm(!) short stem. NO front end wandering at all. But it also has long chain stays and a really long wheelbase.

    It climbs like a goat, even with the tall fork and some spacers under the stem. At the same time it isn't nimble.

    I am really, really curious how well the Enduro climbs. I don't doubt that it is crazy good going down. I also don't think that the travel really hinders climbing performance.

    Front end wandering or not, that remains to be seen.

    Greetings Znarf

    Thanks Znarf!
    ===========

    Glad to hear that a 140mm 29er Revelation doesn't hinders your climbing performance.
    I guess that there won't be any big difference between 140 and 150mm fork regarding climbing ability.

    I just hope that the alloy Enduru 29er won't be too heavy, and that the weight won't hinder the climbing performance.

    Now, I'm totally aware that the alloy Enduro 29er is an AM bike, so I don't expect it to climb as well as a Giant Anthem 29er, Trek Superfly or any similar bikes.

    I ride for the fun. I don't race and have no intentions of racing in the future. But still, a good climbing ability is not less important for me than the downhill ability.

    Mo.

    Another intro story, with some details on different models and equipment specs. Sadly, not due for the US market, yet, only the Comp SE.

    And wait'll they translate those short stays onto the Stumpy.
