    Enduro Expert / DHX Coil?

    Will a DHX coil work on the '06 Enduro Expert frame?

    I don't know but I was also wondering the same thing as I have decided the Enduro Expert is the bike for me, just have to decide whether the M or L size frame. I know 5th Element has a coil for it, don't know if the DHX coil like on the Enduro SX Trail 2 will fit.

    The coil will not fit on the '05/06 Enduro frames.

    Get the Large frame.

    end
    I get paid to ride shotgun.

    So it doesn't fit on the Enduro? Or does this mean that the coil does fit, but only on the larger frames and not the medium or small?

    Say what you mean, man!

    Yeah, I'm with Patrick, what exactly does he mean? I think the Expert with a coil would be hot, his response has me confused though???????

    I looked into this when I bought my 05 Expert. My LBS called Fox the DHX Coil would not fit on the Enduro. I bought the DHX Air shock instead.

    Did you look into this regarding the '05 or '06 model? Because the original '05 spec on the Expert and Pro models called for a custom 5th element air shock. For '06 they've moved to a DHX air. Unless it's totally custom it seems that there should be a DHX coil version in the same size, 8.75" x 2.5". Or maybe not. Let use know if you know.

    It seems to me that the 05 and 06 are the same frames, different shocks.

    call fox and ask 'em...

    ...if they make a DHX Coil that fits the 05/06 Specialized Enduro frame? If they do, then I'm betting that it won't have the "Boost Valve", as this is the difference between the standard DHX Air 5.0 and the Custom DHX Air 5.0 designed for the Enduro frame.
