    Nice. I use Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5" 3C Exo (converted tubeless), front and back for light DH type of riding. If that doesn't work for you, you might want to look at 2-ply DH tires like Minion DHF 3C 2.5"

    Nice bike, excellent color scheme.

    DHR II is a very good allround tire for both front (Supertacky) and rear. In really wet and muddy conditions, try Shorty on the front.

    +1 or go Specialized Butchers Control front / Butcher Grid Rear which would be similar feel as Minions but with a little less weight.

    Hi guys. thinking of pulling the trigger on the 2015 Enduro Comp 29", i only have one question. how long is the stem length on size M? i am 170cm so usually i would opt for size small, but i've tried the Comp 29 in medium, and it felt ok, but i think by getting a shorter stem could be a better cockpit for my height.

    Check the Spec site under "Geometry". It will list the stem lengths for each size.

    2015 Enduro 29 Medium has a 60mm stem. I have seen that on a few different Enduro medium models including the Comp.

    Just checked out a large frame Comp 29 and it had a 60mm as well. This contradicts the Spech web site which lists the large as having a 70mm stem - which is very old school indeed.

    I'm 178.5cm and fit nicely on the med, but will get a large 29 Expert and install a 35/40mm stem. That gives me the same handlebar reach as a med with stock stem.

    I suggest a medium frame and swap out the stock stem for a 40mm stem.

    Nice, loved that bike when I had my 2008! Congratulations.

    Doubt you can covert to QS specially then the axle on that bike is 25mm.

    Going the larger size with a shorter stem is much, much better than vice versa. I'm riding mine with a 40mm stem (Chromag Ranger).

    All Enduro owners.

    If my 2014 savings let me than its possible that ill join Your thread with new E29.

    Before doing that I need some starting Advice.

    This is my as is
    Still owning Anthem 29 with some great stuff onboard XTR,Easton etc.
    Love to custom my bike and if possible to build it up.

    What options do I have:
    1. Buy E29 Comp (3300$) and remove almost all stuff - including shock, stem, brakes, add Anthem equipment and some new (dropper post which I miss now)
    2. Buy E29 Elite (4600$) and stay with shock and fork (replace only brakes to Shimano, driveterrain to Shimano XTR and jewelry to Easton from Anthem)
    3. Buy E29 Elite frameset with fork (Pike RC) and add rest
    4. Buy S-Works Frameset with CC DB Iniline (3650$) and build it up (new fork, wheels, DP )

    What would You choose taking in account I want customize E29 with best suites parts - ex if RS Monarch Plus better suits E29 than I will go with Comp and remove all stuff, but if DB inline suits it better maybe it would be best to buy already fork equipped frame/bike? (your thoughts or links appreciated)

    My local LBS offered me 10% discount as my folks already bought 2 E29 from them.
    Bear in mind (3650$) is only for frame, shock and bearings (no DP) - that 10% is not such a huge deal when it comes to replace shock just after i get the frame (see many folks out there buy reg Comp and replace all stuff incloding shock to have CCDB Air or RS Monarch Plus)

    Go with the S Works Frame since you going to customize everything, you get the stiffer, lighter carbon rear plus the CC inline air is just as good as the DB but lighter, and you can add a bottle holder if you want. Also you should be able to get more than a 10% discount if your family has already bought all those bikes. I'd try for 15 or 20% cash. It may cost you a little more in the long run but you won't regret it!

    As far as I know Specialized doesn't sell a frameset other than the S Works. I do think the Elite is the best value for money in the lineup, though.

    The Enduro Expert and S Works only have carbon front triangles; the rears are aluminum.

    Very common. Lots of people here (U.S) switched to the SX trail rear. It's a lot beefier. Not sure its any easier to find though.

    That's really interesting... did you buy the complete bike and part out things or were you able to score just a frame and build up?

    Bought complete, swapped out fork, wheels, brakes, crankset, stem, post, saddle, soon the rear shock, and also added a 42 tooth cog. I've tried all configurations of 180mm/203mm fork settings with 27.5" and 26" wheels; I really like 203/26/26 and 180/27.5/26. Even with the heavier fork it surprisingly climbs better then my Reign X, likely due to the mix of pivot location/chainring size (28t) and shorter chain stays.

    Cool, I'm considering that bike/frame for next year and would love to see some other pics if you have any

    Sorry, not trying to be a dick, just curious why you run 650b up front and 26" in back. I've heard of people running 650b forks with 26" front wheel to get different geo but curious what the advantage is to this set-up. Thanks!

    Gotcha. It lowers the BB and slackens the head angle vs the stock setup. I've tried multiple 26 and 27.5 variations with the fork at both 180mm and 203mm. This bike is a replacement for my DH bike, a Yeti 303 RDH. I wanted a DH bike I could spin up fire roads.

    - 180/27.5/27.5 (stock): handles a lot like a very burly AM bike. Requires more of a weight shift to the rear when descending steep chutes. Corners pretty good.

    - 180/27.5/26: handles like a DH bike. You're better able to keep your weight forward. Corners fantastic. Doesn't really give up anything in the climbing department.

    - 203/27.5/27.5: haven't tried. BB would be too high.

    - 203/27.5/26: not terrible, but handling suffers a bit. Not worth the increased rollover.

    - 203/26/26: handles like a DH bike, and overall rides just like one. I'll use this setup for resort days.

    Getting back on an Enduro...

    Just pulled the trigger on a 2015 650b Elite. Should pair nicely with my Mach 5.7c, and FatBoy Pro...

    So I just finished putting a Reverb Stealth Dropper on my 2014 Enduro Comp 29 and I haven't cut the excess cabling yet though.

    I was wondering since the seat tube seems to be pretty tight with all of the pivots instead of cutting the hydraulic cable for the dropper should I put excess cable wrapped in the down tube? This would allow me to remove the dropper housing for servicing without needing to remove the cable guides on the outside of the downtube.

    Has anyone had experience doing this or have any other suggestions.

    BTW I found it was easier to install the cable from the top with some excess cable housing rather than from the port in the downtube going up.

    I just added 780mm wide carbon bars to my Enduro. And it feels even better with them.

    I really, really love this bike. Great blend of stability and nimble, light fun.
