    We the people ... Manuals for the 2011 S-Works Epic 29er

    I had a hard time finding them online myself so the local Specialized rep sent my lbs a link.
    Please let me know if you find any error/omissions in the data. I am compiling a list of them myself to post with this thread later.

    Thanks for the post! If I can't ride my 2011, at least I can read the technical manuals until it arrives...

    There are no service intervals listed for the 2011 Rockshox Reba brain fork in the PDF file.

    It's just a big warning saying that the owner should always send the fork off to Specialized or Rock Shox for any service work.

    They're on the main Specialized website (Home > Support > Technical Publications).

    The Specialized "manual" is actually a tuning guide. It defers to the RockShox Suspension Fork Manual (very, very generic), which specifies the common 50/150 intervals.

    The standard 2011 Rock Shox Reba fork has 25/50/100 hour service intervals apparently. I was interested to see whether the Specialized 2011 Rock Shox Reba brain fork was different from that.

    I was referencing this manual, but incorrectly wrote 50/150. It's 25/50/100, as you point out:

    That 25/50/100 hour service schedule is for the standard 2011 Rock Shox Reba fork which has different internals. I'm not 100% sure that it's the same for a 2011 Rock Shox Reba brain fork. With a brain cartridge in the fork it could still have different service intervals? I was hoping that the Specialized "manual" would say.

    It's a game of manual ping-pong: The Specialized Tuning Guide refers you to the RS manual, but the RS manual doesn't specifically cite the Reba Brain. And that RS Suspension Fork manual is as generic as they come. Talk about future-proofing.

    I suppose one could infer that an S120 or 2010 S410TA manual can cover the Brain.
