    E150 Crown/Stem for 2007

    I looked all over the forum and the spec website and couldn't figure this out...

    I've got a 2007 Enduro SL - Large. What size stems comes stock on this bike?

    I am looking to increase the cock-pit just a little was thinking about purchasing another stem from http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...jsp?spid=49664


    Thanks guys!

    you can just measure what you have.

    Middle of the topcap bolt to the middle of the bar. Measurement should be taken perpendicular to the steerer.

    Your large bike has an 80mm stem stock , ----------the XL Enduro has the 100mm stem .

    Your bike shop should have some different lengths you could try and see which you like .

    I wished I could ride a large size bike , ---------but I only fit the goofy XL bike , ----the extra cockpit room really helps me throw the thing around and makes the climbs really nice .

    The large was just to cramped for me

    Your other option is to but the 100 mm stem that came on my XL. I ran it 3 times and then took it off. Send me a note if interested.

    So what's the deal with some of these stems not tightening enough on the stanchions? I was going to put some shim stock in the upper clamp. Curious if any of you cats had this prob. These E150 have enough little annoying problems to drive me nuts

    Never heard of this problem.

    Maybe the stanction itself is crushed. Try moving the stanction up or down a bit to have the clamps close on another section of the possibly crushed stanction. 55 in pounds is the torque setting on those stem bolts. This is just a bit past snug if you do not have a torque wrench.

    Specialized did come back and revise the pinch blts for the stantions to 75 inch pounds.

    What problem are you having ?, there can be some creaking from the stem of the bike , its casued from the bolts in the stem being dry and the stem to steer tube being dry , this is common on duel crown bikes because the load is very different .

    Its not a problem where the clamp is not tight enough .

    ( Specialized did up the torque on all the upper bolts in the stem to 75" lbs, ---but I feel this is way to tight -----I have had to repair several broken bolts and striped clamp threads for shops around here using the 75" lbs )

    I run my bolts in my top clamp at 50" lbs and my lowers at 30 " lbs , and the handelbars at 60" lbs with carbon bars .

    These wrap style clamps can easily damadge the stanchion tubes , be carefull on overtighten them .

    If you alighn the stanchion tubes up on any duall crown fork by sliding the empty lowers up and down on the stanchions while alighning them you will see how overtightening will affect stiction and drag .

    I actually have to add a peice of .010 shim stock in my left side lower clamp at the inside to keep my stanchions alighned with no stiction in the lowers, ----the XL bikes with the longer stanchions are affected slightly like this where the S,M,L bikes are not .
    Many longer 7" and 8" travel Duel crown forks will also benifit from correct alighnment like this

    Defiintely is a problem where the clamp is not tight enough. With everything torqued, you can actually feel it rocking back and forth slightly at the top of the stanchions where they meet the clamp. I went a little tighter and it seems to have stopped. I'll see tomorrow when I go riding (it's will be about 24 degrees out )

    Hey Kelstr, maybe I should machine a whole new frame?......Just kidding

    Wow , that is odd.
    The bushings in the sliders wiggle and make a clunking feel all through the ft end, and the steering head will surly clunk like that also .

    24 degrees , my god , its 50 degrees here and I have long underwear on and three layers on top , and i want to ride today but I am to cold, tomorrow it should be 60 and I can ride in that cold .

    24 would kill me , I can't go out side when its 40 or under

    Bushings are good. It's definitely the top clamp. Seems to be good now. We'll see. It's gonna be a cold one tomorrow
