    I'm 6 ft tall and at times I wished I had a medium. I like the compact feeling of the medium while descending, but it is a little cramped for climbing.

    I have a Large and it does the job; I have shorter arms in relation to my body overall which could be why I fit well on a large so well. There is nothing wrong with a 120mm stem, but it will affect the steering feel and the lift power needed to lift the front end because your arms are further in front of the headtube. Really comes down to how you're riding. My brother has a Large stumpy with a 120mm stem and the bike is still fun to ride even though my Large enduro currently has a 35mm stem. Both bikes are very similar in size. But if you're 6' 2" and need a Large with a 120mm stem and I feel comfortable on a large with a 35mm stem, I must have shorter arms then you.

    Have you ever considered a shorter stem on the Large enduro, or would it be too crammed?

    Best bet is to go and ride both sizes, thats what I did and ended up with the large because climbing just felt better on it. Hopefully someone in your height range with experience can weigh in. The forums are kind of quiet right now because we're in the winter season.

    I think the Evo Expert is available most places now, but it's the standard Evo I'm talknig about... the green & black one.

    I recently switched from an 06 enduro elite, large, to a 10 enduro comp, also large. Only been on a handful of rides so far but it just doesn't feel right to me. I've decided my best next move will be to try a coil rear shock, and I thought I had seen a DIY thread somewhere on making an 8.5 X 2.5 coil shock work on the 2010 frame. I can't seem to find it now, can anyone point me in the right direction please? I'd rather not spend the crazy price for the evo rear setup from specialized unless I'm sure it'd be what I'm looking to accomplish. TIA!

    The fork feels great! Just a little break dive sometimes but ive gotten used to it, and learned to compensate this. This can be fixed easily with the MiCo damper, im planning on doing this upgrade somewhere in the near future, but other than that i love this fork!

    I too went from a coiled out 06 Enduro to a 2010 version. If your issue with the 2010 version is the soft mid-stroke, then please try the small Fox shock volume adjuster. Not exactly coil, but firms mid-stroke nicely, to the point that I don't miss the coils. Cost is $25.

    On a side note, has anyone tried or know if it is possible to put an 8.75 i2i shock in the enduro? Will the suspension move down and If you were still to limit the stroke would it just raise BB hieght? This is prob a dumb question but I had done it with my old enduro and it worked great! Im just shoping for a shock right now so I thought Id see if anyone has tried it.

    You can fit 8.75 x 2.5 shock in 2010-2012 Enduro with no interference. A friend of mine has DHX Air (222 x 64) installed.

    Im so glad to hear this. Do you know what it effected on the bike? Id assume it raised the BB a bit and steepened the HA?

    Im about 95% sure this is the route Im about to attempt. Any input is greatly appreciated from anyone!!

    Also my friend fitted a 8.75 x 2.5 spring on his Enduro last week. Hasn't complained yet. He didn't get to ride it that long though before he broke some bone and got ordered a three month break from cycling.

    Quick question after reading the whole thread - Enduro Evo 2012, size L with 40mm stem for a person with 183cm height, 85,5cm inseam (no shoes on) ? Reach measure is 457mm which is what I'm worried about mostly. Now I'm on a bike with HTT 610mm, reach 430mm and 60mm stem, and IMHO it fits me great.

    I'm 6'2" and ride an 08 large Enduro. Not sure how similar the dimensions are to the newer bikes. That said, no problem fitting on the large. I also have an XL Giant Reign which we just built up for one of my sons. We put a shorter (60mm) stem on it, and it also fits just fine. I think most people would say you and I should be on a large, but it comes down to personal preference. I can go either way (L or XL) and feel comfortable if the bike is setup for me. The Reign with the original 100?mm stem definitely stretched me a little bit, however. With the shorter stem, I really like the fit, though.

    Hi,
    collected my s-works Frame today. It came stock with play in the front shock mount. Anybody else had that? What is the size of the front Bushings using a CCDBA?

    Yes, it raises the BB and steepens the angles. Can compensate with 170-175 mm fork.

    Someone else had this problem after 6 rides. Look in the s works Enduro thread.

    To anyone who has done the travel reduction mod on a fox shock, what are the little spacers that accomplish this called. Are they fox brand? I can't seem to find where to buy them.

    How does a Enduro EVO (not the 2013 model, but earlier ones, 2012 lets say) climb with the coil shock ? Some say slow the rebound and it will be easier.

    Locksley:

    You know that you have to get both the rebound and compression dampers, rigth?

    I've got mine through eBay:
    eBay Mi mundo - dana67301
    nice chaps, good prices.

    You can get also from Bikeman:
    Bikeman RockShox Lyrik Mission Control DH Compression Damper

    And possible, if you search a little on the net, you'll find more shops that can provide the kit you're looking for.

    One thing I can tell you, it is well worth every penny!!!

    And a shock upgrade too (I've got a standard MM Monarch RC Plus, way better than the standard Fox on my 2010 Comp.)

    Cheers

    First of all, it's 'volume reduction' not travel...

    And Jensen has them in stock, that's where I ordered mine...

    I've had a coil shock on my enduro for 3 years now and to be honest I think faster rebound is better for climbing. When the rebound is too slow the bike is too planted, and feels sluggish and over damped. But with faster rebound the shock is more lively and rebounds quicker to its proper sag so it doesn't feel so over damped.

    I don't know, its kind of a give and take sort of thing and also depends on how beat up the trail is that you're climbing. Just remember, no matter what you do it doesn't have that solid feel that an air shock provides, but you will noticeably gain on the DH.
