    That's not my understanding. Cane Creek told me to order part number BAD0612, and that it fits 2013+ Enduros.

    Thanks!.....It eliminates the spider and separate chain ring and is just one piece now. Cut out specifically to fit the s-works spider crank arm design. Cuts down the weight.....a little, but looks much cleaner in my opinion and because it is all one piece now it's a little less flexy at the ring.

    The way it sits now is 30lbs. With my Nevegals on it, it weighs 27.5 so I'm hoping with some carbon wheels to takes it down around 25ish or less. I'm also looking into doing a 650B conversion to it as well. still really up in the air on that one though.

    If you use the fit finder on the cane creek site the 2013 and 2014 end up showing a different part number.
    I just noticed since I'm trying to sell a brand new #BAD0612 and did some research for a buyer and myself. Small difference but I'm sure it might be enough to cause issues.

    I am pretty sure BAD0611 is for 2013 and BAD0612 is for 2014 (for 26" bikes). The stroke of the shock is different, so you will either not get full travel or bottom out if you use the wrong shock.

    Hi gang long time lurker first time poster.

    Just thought id throw my experience up on the Cane Creek topic.

    For my 2014 Enduro Evo (fox van r is stock) Cane Creek say the DBCoil to buy was BAD0299.

    Wish i knew that before i brought a s-work version, it fits and works but it isn't right. Its 10mm shorter in length and has 10-15mm less travel.
    Silly me doing zero research

    Changed the head angle and lowered the bb, i guess a 160mm Pike might of balanced the head angle back out but im not sure so back to stock for me.

    I'll double check with cane creek then; this is what they told me when I asked about a 2014 Enduro 29er.

    Gang has anyone tried to make or force your Enduro Evo to climb better.

    Its a large and 26".

    I know lowering weight for me (250lbs) and bike will help but what else, if there are any ideas id dearly like to know.

    Perhaps i have the wrong model for my intentions.

    I will be looking at the 2015 29er SJ's and Enduros thou.

    I changed out the spongy x-fusion coil fork on mine for a fox talas air. I feel it climbs a lot better and is much more agile in the corners, without any noticeable effects on its dh performance

    Faster rolling tyres will help too

    I ditched the fox van r coil I was running for a Suntour Durolux RC2 and couldn't be happier. I think the days of coil sprung forks are coming to an end.

    I wonder how a Pike 160mm fork would effect the bike.

    I guess it depends in the standing free height.

    My x-fusion was 170mm, I changed to the 160-140mm talas. Did some geometry measuring before and after swapping the fork. The differences were tiny. But the bike is much better to ride

    Thanks for that.

    So it didnt alter the handle bar height to much. I can assume that would make you need to learn more forward.

    I guess its the bottom of grown to axle measurement that matters the most more so then fork travel.

    Hey all!
    I'm looking for a replacement frame for my Specialized S-works Enduro SL 2008, size medium, carbon fiber or aluminum. I would prefer a frame from the same year so I can reuse the other parts. Is there anyone who can give me a tip on an available frame at a good price? Shipping address is Sweden.

    I've been looking at Pinkbike but havn´t found the right frame so far...

    The decals, are they covered with the clear coat, or are they "removable"?

    That looks awesome Rock.

    Problem is, I am considering buying a `15 elite 29. And till now, only the black with blue stripes and white letters version "leaked".
    So I wonder if I could remove these decals or would have to order a different version or bike.

    I have a '13 black comp. I have no clear coat on mine. The decals are barely visible, the bike is "murdered out" The decals appear to be on top of the paint, almost like silkscreened on. Since my bike is flat black, I'm not sure how you could remove them except with some sort of solvent. Sounds Risky.

    I could have sworn I saw that both alloy versions are coming in two colors. Hopefully the Elite comes in flat black like the bike above - that looks sick. You could always go with that white Expert Carbon too; what's another thousand bucks, right?

    I don`t really like the white carbon one either.

    When it comes to colors I am a simple man.
    One Color. No contrasts.
    I`d love to buy flat black, flat white or even an entirely green bike, but I really hate these stripes on bikes.

    Carbon is still an option, but I had to rise my "limit" from 3k to 4k already (in Euro), Carbon is just too much. My wife is going to kill me anyways, but If I buy the carbon bike, she`ll torture me first.

    Hi guys, I have a 2012 enduro Evo and have the shock rub issue of the X-Fusion shock. The bike is in great condition for its age and use. Does anyone know if Spesh is still ready to take care of the issue? Also, if anyone with the same issue has pictures of the rub area that would be greatly appreciated to help get my LBS behind me and convince Spesh of the issue

    2013 enduro evo expert ?'s

    Did anyone replace their steel coil with another one using the ccdb spring calc? I get conflicting numbers depending on what calc I use. Ranges from 550- 450. I get 450-475 using the crane creek calc.

    Just lost .75 of a lb going from 2x10 to 1x10. Now it weighs in at 35.8. A ti coil. Should bring that down to low 35's.

    I'd get the lighter one, and then if it is too light, you have a goal for weight loss.

    I'm very close to buying 2014 carbon Enduro 29. I have been riding 120 mm travel carbon FS and wanted to get a bigger travel bike. Given the fact that I'm riding 50% uphills, what would be recommendations in terms of buying Enduro 29 with 155 mm travel? Or I should opt to get a 140 mm travel 29er?

    It's most definitely the plastic BB cups. Pull the BB and replace it with one from wheelsmfg.com ..or do what I did and replace the whole crank/bb with a raceface next SL unit

    Riding a 2014 Enduro 29er Comp with the non-Kashima Auto-Sag Fox Float CTD rear shock.

    Is anyone else not happy with their rear shock performance? I feel like in proper PSI "climb mode" I get too much pedal bob and in "descend mode" I don't get enough stroke. In other words, too much PSI to have a great climb or not enough PSI to use the full stroke of the shock when descending.

    Any input? Yes I've played with multiple different PSI settings. I'm coming off a Trek Slash where the "climb mode" was pure perfection and "descend mode" used the full stroke of the rear shock.

    Personally I believe the stock fox evolution shock is garbage.. I had to run higher PSI's so it didn't blow through travel.. Then climb mode felt almost locked out.. Which was ok but the lack of small bump in descend was very noticeable.. And I had to run the pike at higher pressures to 'equalize' the bike.. Completely defeating the small bump plushness the pike is known for.
    I got the air volume tuning kit, using the medium 'token' allowed me to run lower pressures without bottoming as easy but the shock still just couldn't keep up with the pike. About 1/2 mile into a descent the shock would heat up and lose any dampening performance it had left..
    Ended up replacing it with the Monarch Plus Debonair and couldn't be happier.

    Wow this is exactly the problem I'm running into. Two different Specialized dealers have tried "setting up" the rear shock.

    Swapping out it is than! Thank you, vokeswaagin.

    The e29 gelt such great reviews that I decided to pick up a used one just to check it out. My trails have lots of short ups and downs (nothing more than a few minutes of consecutive downhill) with lots of ledges and rocks. 120-140mm is pretty common. It took me a while to figure out that I had to sit and spin in order to get the e29 to climb. Other than that, I love the way this thing handles and smashed most of my Strava ( ok, so I'm an ahole) records. If you are worried that the E29 is some lumber, clumsy beast of a bike, I can tell you that it is not.

    new to the enduro -

    I bought a used one and want to mount my next SL crankset in place of the XX1 crankset. Race Face has some adapters for the PF30 sram BB. Has anyone done this or should I just get the RF BB and be done ? thanks

    Sorry to derail the topic but I need some urgent advice. Mine is the 2014 enduro Evo expert with ohlins shock.

    Took the bike to my usual trail with some small drops and rock gardens. After about an hour, the shock started acting up and kept giving me a feeling of bottoming out.



    Eventually this happened when I took a small jump.

    Has anyone on ohlins encountered this before? It looks like the screw end of the piston rod worked loose from the linkage.

    I am going to send it to my bike shop tomorrow and I hope this is nothing major.

    jscramst - just get the RF BB.. Not impressed with SRAMs plastic nonsense.

    des1512 - I've never seen that before! I have seen the rear shock mount/yoke fixing bolt come loose, but not the actual rod coming apart like that. Definitely a warranty issue. See your dealer.

    Yes, the stock shock is crap. See threads on the shock board to get a look inside at the (lack of) internal damping circuits. The shock on this bike is a significantly cheapened unit that doesn't have the basic high/low circuits that a shock should have. The good thing is they got rid of the Fox Evolution fork for the pike, but the rear shock is still a low point. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about mine, I am probably going to call craig at Avalanche this winter and see if he has any Chubie/Woodie solutions or ideas. Obviously there are a few aftermarket options that would likely work well, but I'm against the Fox Float X on principle, since they cheapened out so many of their shocks and forks as of recent. I'm concerned about the spikey-high speed impact nature of the CCDB, which seems to be confirmed whenever I talk to someone on the chairlift at the local DH venue.

    des1512 - I've never seen that before! I have seen the rear shock mount/yoke fixing bolt come loose, but not the actual rod coming apart like that. Definitely a warranty issue. See your dealer.
    Piston drag, either due to misalignment or something failing, will cause the piston to separate from the shaft eventually. Happened to my romic shock (but truth be told, it was the 3rd failure of that shock, didn't help that Romic was lying to me during the entire process and previous failures). Supposedly the specialized yoke design puts a lot of stress on this part of the shock, it may be better with an air shock and the larger shaft to deal with the stress?

    I went with the EVO comp simply for the fact I couldn't see the extra almost $2500.00 dollars worth it. I was also lucky enough to find a friend selling 2014 evo comp frame only. Currently just put a 888 on the front to run it on the DH side versus aggressive AM.
