    There is a base model and Expert model. I went with the base model. I rode it last Sunday at Whistler and it handled everything I threw at it. A-line, Dirt Merchant and many of the tech trails where all great on the bike. Stock the bike is 35.6lbs but once I get my new fork installed (2013 Lyrik RC2DH) the bike will be a lb lighter!

    I bought the bike on a Wednesday, did a 6 mile local trail ride to get the cockpit dialed then went to Whistler a few days later!

    the bike now has a command post but it only added 100g. The stock seat post was crazy long and heavy!

    So I finally blew out my air shock, which gives me a good excuse to put on the evo kit I have had for the last 8 months.
    I cant seem to find any good information on what spring weight I should be running.
    2011 Large Enduro, I am 6'3" and 225 pounds. The shock came with a 500#X57 spring and it is way to soft. I can bottom it out just barely bouncing on it.

    From all of your experiences, should I go with a 550# spring or 600# spring?
    And should I go with a longer spring too? It seems it will clear the frame, maybe a 65?

    Thanks for the help!

    i think you might have trouble getting a 600 to fit....i am facing the same dilema on my sxt as ive put some muscle on over the off season. If you get one to try, make sure you have a return policy support.
    cost me a fortune in new clothes & riding gear!

    Re: Official Specialized Enduro Thread

    I am about that same weight and am using a 600 lbs spring and it feels good for me. My evo kit came with a 600 and got lucky.

    It is the fox spring, and it came on the shock when I bought the kit. Was my only spring choice. I remember that I bought a 550 from pricepoint.com after getting the kit in fear that the 600 would of been to still.

    I am around 225lbs and on my two rides I have on my '11 Evo I have used a 800lb spring but I think that is too firm. I am off out tonight to try out the 700lb that I also have. I have come from an RS Monarch so the plushness of a coil is deceptive in how much sag it actually gives you. The 800 felt nice bouncing on the bike and on big hits but the sag was too little and it was too choppy over small and medium bumps.

    Fingers crossed that the 700 will be fine. I'm going to hit some rocks and roots as hard as I can tonight to see how it feels.

    Just picked this up. Only upgrade so far are 780mm Renthal Fatbar handlebars I had on my Stumpy and a Command post. Going to send the shock to X Fusion so they can covert it to an HLR and next up will be a brake, rear derailleur and shifters upgrade. Will probably go with XOs.

    Can the Vengeance R be converted to the HLR?
    I have one on my 2013 Enduro Evo that I'd love to upgrade!

    Okay, I need some more help now.
    So I called x fusion, they told me for my 2011 enduro frame I would have to buy a "special coil" through a specialized dealer. They say it requires a spring that they only make for enduros and only for specialized. So I called my local specialized dealer and they say specialized is out of all springs for enduros and to check back some time mid summer.

    Just a note the x fusion guy told me a stock length spring would coil bind and probably rub the frame.

    I know you guys have some experience on this, so who has used a 600# by 65 spring on a 2011 large enduro?

    Or does any one have a 600# xfusion enduro coil they would be willing to sell?

    Thanks for the help yet again!!

    It can be converted to an RC with a cartridge upgrade which I think is around $200. Not sure about HLR but dont think so.

    Check Marzocchi. I've seen several Enduro Evos with titanium coil upgrades from Marzocchi. Little bit more expensive but another option.

    Also check fox, they make a 2.35 spring for the dhx series that fits and I believe it the same size as the one you have.

    BTI | products matching "cane" (page 2)

    First question, I imagine it wouldn't hurt to run a slightly longer travel spring?
    The only issue I see is frame clearance right? It shouldn't coil bind being to long?

    The link above, I found a cane creek spring 2.250" stroke. (Should be 2.125" hence the longer length question). I.d. Is the same at 1.43" and it i dont know the free length.
    I'm thinking this should work, does any one know what length spring they have on their enduros?
    At $24.99 I think I will try it to see if it will rub.
