    Enduro Head Tube Angle

    Hi there!

    I had some time to waste, and measured the Head Tube Angle on my Specialized Enduro 2011, with the Lyrik 170mm and some 2.35 Hans Dampf tires on some Flow rims and the angle measured 64.5 degrees (Un-sagged)! Can this be right???? The manual states 66.5 I know this could be a bit of, but 64.5 sounds reaaaaly slack to me.

    Anyone out there can confirm or comment on this?

    Thanks!!!

    Highly unlikely that's accurate. Even the slacked out Enduro Evo is at 65 deg. How are you measuring? Is your measuring device known to be calibrated/accurate? Measure it once, then flip the bike around 180 deg and measure again - the floor could easily be a couple degrees off from perfectly flat.
