    That last pic, in motion, is cool. Look at your chain. Crazy movement. Didn't think they whip that much.

    Anyone got any real life shots of the 2013 Enduro Evo? I've just pre ordered one to replace my old SX Trail but can't tell if the highlight colour is yellow or lime green.... trying to decide on a colour scheme for pedals and bars. Sad I know but March delivery feels like a long way off!

    Also, I have a set of barely used SLX M666 brakes on my SX. Would these be better than the Avids that come with the Enduro? I've only used Shimano, Hope and Hayes before but never Avids, although I have heard problems of reliability and ease of set up.

    Cheers

    If you're getting an Evo, I think you don't care that much about the bike's weight. I would stick to Shimano. I have a set of 2012 XT's on my Demo and a set of X0 brakes on my Enduro, and I keep Avid's only for the sake of low weight (around 300g on a set of brakes and rotors). Still, I do have a set of XT's new in bag waiting for me to stop being a weight weenie!

    2013 Enduro Comp Med Black.

    I've only got 2 rides on it, but it's stable and comfortable. Only real BIG differnce from my '08 is the Bottom Brakcket height is about an inch lower on the '13. The whole bike seems to have a lower CG. Been too slippery out to compare handling yet. Should be better than previous.
    The old one first and then the new one.

    New one has Blk on Blk graphics. Factory "Murdered Out".

    Soooo cool the stealth look on the 2013 Comp.
    Too bad the Comp "flavour" is only served in white here in Portugal...

    Congrats on the new bike. Is really very nice!

    Cheers and Happy New Year!!!

    Love the stealth look; if I bought a new Enduro, thats exactly what it would look like.

    My SX Trail is a touch under 36lbs so the Evo will be lighter even with the SLX. I presume the the Avid rotors would still be compatible as I use the SLX with Hope rotors which I'd be leaving on the old bike.

    That black Comp is sick btw!

    Sure they will be compatible. If you need more power, with Shimano SLX-M666 you can always upgrade to Ice-Tech rotors and metallic finned pads. I heard it's an upgrade best made together, but maybe there are more knowledgable people here to correct me.

    I'm deciding between the stumpy evo or enduro comp 2013 for a new bike. Can the enduro handle xc with tight corners and steep climbs outside of the all mountain purpose? These are my first thoughts.

    Stumpy evo negatives :
    - black/white colour for 26inch model in my country
    - 32 fork vs 34 fork
    - less solid frame for jumps and drops

    Enduro negatives :
    - slow cornering in tight corners
    - heavy in climbs
    - bad handling at cross country riding

    Any advice is welcome thx!

    I know you're looking at a '13 model but I have an 08 enduro and my brother has an 09 Stumpy elite. I've ridden his stumpy quite a bit and have come to realize how different both bikes are. But let me first say this, it will depend solely on how and where you're riding. Both bikes will do what you want them to do, but depending on what bike you have for a specific trail can make all the difference.

    Just a short example; I train on a xc singletrack trail that has many tight turns, a lot of ups and downs requiring a lot of pedaling, and drops of about two feet. I train on this trail because its a 3 mile loop with a mix of everything yet really strains you because you're pedaling non stop to beat the clock. This is a task on my enduro because of the weight(Keep in mind it weighs 4lbs more than a new Enduro); the bike feels slow and heavy and just doesn't feel alive like the stumpy does on this same trail. It is very noticeable on tight, steep switchbacks because of the slacker HT and longer wheelbase; the stumpy feels like it just takes less effort. But compared to the faster parts of the trail the enduro just eats everything up feeling much more stable at speed making you more confident to go faster. The Enduro shines over the stumpy in the jumps as well, feeling more stable on landings and doing a better job at absorbing the hits.

    Both bikes are very different yet are similar within a certain realm of riding. The stumpy evo and endruo comp are very close to what they are intended to do and will really rely on what the majority of your riding will consist of. You can use one for the majority of your riding, but if its too much, or not enough of what you need can make or break your purchase.

    What type of trails will you be riding? How big are the drops? How often do you climb and how crazy are the descents? Do you push yourself to go faster?

    A better understanding of your riding habits will help.

    Definately take the terrain into consideration, but just take a look around. What types of bikes do you mainly see on the trails you ride? Are you seeing more "all-mountain" style bikes or more "trail" oriented bikes. This may help in the decision as well. I know 10mm of travel is not a very big difference. Are you looking at the evo comp or the evo (carbon) expert? How big/strong are you?

    You pointed the drawbacks of each construction well, so you should decide what matters to you more. Looking at the strength of your arguments, I would say go for a Stumpy. Anyway, they both have 15mm axles for 2013, so if you feel you miss the stiffness in front, you can upgrade to a 34 or 36mm fork and still end up with a lighter bike than the enduro. As for the stiffness of the frame, unless you go jumping like Darren, you should be fine. Happy new year!

    I wanted to go for the enduro because I love the way it looks and is beefier for riding a couple times a year in the mountains when on vacation. I tend to push myself to go further and further, but when I'm at my home trails its too much of a bike I guess. Thx for explaining, I will probably go with the stumpy comp evo (and maybe the 29er because the 26er is not that good looking in black/white combo). Do you think the enduro with an angleset or/and a smaller travel fork (lower BB) will come close to the stumpy and be a good option for changing setups for a vacation (Italy,Austria)?

    Just curious here, but if you are not racing (maybe you are and just did not read it) why does it matter between the two bikes? I mean to me, does it really matter that my bike is "said low weight" if I am just out riding? Would I not actually want a burlier bike for longevity and the occasional jump, tumble, otb, back flip? I mean, I think many ride for the fitness of it anyway, and would not the heavier bike be more of an incentive?
    Dunno, just hearing that a bike might be too much for someone or some terrain seems kind of silly if I think about it in my demented way

    Personally I think you would be crazy to not get the Enduro. I mean hell, it even allows you to shorten the travel for better climbing

    I would go for the enduro. You can always build the bike either heavier or lighter depending on what you are doing. I have owned a 2010 stumpy and currently own a 2010 enduro. Its safe to say i will not be getting rid of my Enduro any time soon! I blew out the rear shock on the stumpy. With the stumpy you don't have very many options as far as upgrades. The rear shock on the stumpy is set. But with the enduro there is the possibility of putting a Canecreek DB air from the S-works. Specialized also went to the common 8.5x2.5 shock size I know you will not be dissapointed with the enduro. The bikes are built! I have never run into somebody that didn't love their enduro! I have an XL enduro and i can still that thing through super tight switchbacks. I have done XC on my bike with no problem at all and my build weighs 38lbs!!!

    That is an option, you could get an angleset and go with a 150mm fork and have identical HT angles. You'd probably shorten the wheelbase a bit as well while retaining the BB height. You'll like the 4mm lower BB on the Enduro. Your other option is to sell your fork and buy a Talas so you can adjust the HT angle on demand depending on what trail you're riding and whether you're climbing or descending. This would be your cheapest option because you just sell your fork and buy a Talas whereas if you go with the angleset you'll have to buy the angleset.

    I just got off the site and the bikes have almost identical builds with the Enduro Comp weighing in at 29lbs 9oz and the Stumpy Evo weighing 28lbs 10oz. They are within a pound of each other with the enduro having an inch longer wheelbase and a 4mm lower BB height. The HT angle is half a degree slacker on the enduro compared tot he stumpy evo.

    I'd go with the enduro; the specs are too close not to go with the beefier model. You'll have a bike that can do it all and if it gets a little straining on the slower trails then you can install an angleset with a 150mm fork to adjust the HT angle. The best option in my opinion is to sell the fork and get a Talas so you can drop the front end of the bike for the climbs (Giving you around a 67.5 degree HT angle) and be able to raise it while descending leaving your 66.5 degree HT angle alone giving you a better descending bike. This way you don't mess with what makes the enduro awesome, which is descending.

    Maybe I'm not suprised that all of you guys will buy the enduro over the stumpy evo, asking the question in an enduro thread . My thoughts were already in favor of an enduro comp from the beginning. I also think it is a do-it-all bike and it's good for getting rid of some manly weight . When I want something light for racing I will buy an epic if I really need it. Thx for all the replies. I will post some pics when I trade some cash for this bad boy . Thx for all the input and a happy new year !

    I decided on the 13 enduro expert over the stumpy evo. Tough decision. I just figured that a little advantage going downhill was more important to me than a minor climbing advantage. Both bikes are beautiful. I believe that the enduro is only a half pound heavier(27.14) vs (27.4) Going tubeless should make up the difference. Plus I like the colors of the enduro more.

    Since the evo frame is exactly the same as the enduro frame, I would argue for a carbon enduro frame and bolt on all your evo build kit to it. I doubt they are out of carbon enduro frames.

    Hi guys, been trawling for a while but finally joined up tonight, hoping someone could answer me a quick question - pardon my ignorance if this is obvious.

    I have noticed some of the Specialized Enduros have an inline X frame (the top tubes cross over) but then there are other ones where the X is not inline (as in the tube that has the shock mounted to it is not in line with the tube that runs to the handle bars). I would add a pic to explain what I am talking about but this forum wont allow me as I am new

    Can anyone explain to me what is the difference? I am looking to buy a 2011 modified Enduro that does not have the inline X frame.

    Thanks in advance

    Random question time....

    As you will no doubt be aware, the 2013 Evo has internal cable routing holes for a dropper post. Now, I was reading one of the 2013 Carbon Stumpy threads and saw that the Rockshox Reverb hydro cable is too thick for the guide hole as it's meant for the Command Post which is mechanical and has a thinner cable. Is this likely to be a problem on the Enduro Evo? If so any suggestions to get around the problem? Swap cables etc? I won't be busting out the Dremel that's for sure

    Cheers!

    Ja, but the routing in the top tube is not clean. It's only about 40cm and comes out again above the damper where it scratches when the post is in the lower position. Bad Solution from the innovate or die "S" guys. And only because they haven't finished the job on the CP. I think the post is one of the best but the cable routing of it is a mess and should have been optimized in the last 3 years. Wait till 2014 Enduro. It should have a complete internal routing(Hopefully a new CP!).

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the info, in that case I may just mount it with the other cables in the usual manner. Will save me bleeding it

    Ahhh, good point. I wrongly assumed it was Fox

    In that case I reckon your best bet it to contact X Fusion direct. If they don't do a 600lb spring then ask for the spring measurements (I/D and O/D) and then see if any other brand will work.

    I just picked up my enduro expert and am thinking of going to a 1x10 setup. Does anybody know how much I would have to spend for the conversion.

    Finally the Monarch plus is installed!!



    With xmas and the workshop being closed for a week, plus some trouble dissembling the shock, I thought I would never install the shock! But finally!



    It is a stock monarch, since Push no longer have the customized shock in their product list. So I had to mill the shock myself...



    It turned out quite nice...
    installing was also quite easy, although some work is needed on the clevis too.

    Took it for a spin last weekend, but it was too short to really test the shock.
    It seems better than the stock RP2, but that is not that hard i guess...

    Cheers

    Not very much at all; you have two options. You can choose the tooth count you want for the front chainring and bolt it up to your crank and leave the rear cassette alone if you like the rear gearing. The other option is to get a different rear cassette tooth spacing to match the tooth spacing for the front, then you're looking at around $100 depending.

    My LBS advised me to keep stay with 2X10 when I had the same idea as yours.
    The purpose of enduro bike is to able to climb and descend. Y take away the climbing feature out from the bike :P


    In the end, really depends on what type of terrain u ride in .

    Finally retiring my 2006 and ordered a 2012 comp. Getting it from a private seller used. They listed the specs on the rear axle as QR, but I thought I had read the 2012 comps were all 142. I just wanted to know for sure so I can make sure I can have every thing I need to swap my current wheelset as soon as it arrives. Thanks.
