    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.

    I think it was a problem on the large frame and the 500 or 550 coil.

    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,

    J.

    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.
