    As it came from the LBS, minus tubes and plus lock-on grips and some older Kona platforms. So far so good...

    (just wanted to have 2 red-and-black Enduros together to lead it off...).

    A bad photo of my nearly stock Enduro Comp. So far only mods are tubeless conversion, 50mm Straitline Vertical Wedge stem and NS Bikes Aerial pedals. The Wedge is not in the pic though. Next changes will probably be some 750-780mm bar and XO shifters.
    Nice bikes posted already, I quite like the colour scheme on them

    //Oh and no worries, reflectors are gone now, left them on so people would actually see me at the pitch dark winter days.

    Here are a couple of fairly boring pics of my XL Enduro Comp that I am totally in love with.





    Mods are very limited as I am very happy with the bike as it is at the moment:

    # Tubeless conversion
    # Command post
    # Carbon fibre rock guard on frame downtube
    # Sam Hill autograph on top tube

    Those black/red bikes look pretty horn.

    It took a little looking, but I found the other Enduro thread where I posted mine before: Here.

    But hey, I love my ENDURO! I don't mind posting it again. I took my camera with me today and got some new pictures of it.

    It is basically a stock 2012 Evo in XL.

    I switched to a Riva seat. The Henge put things to sleep that should NEVER go to sleep.
    Switched to an Answer Pro Taper 780mm width bar. The stock Specialized bar bend was all wrong for me and I like wide bars (not many trees in the desert!). I don't like how low the rise is on the Answer and am thinking of trying a Chromag OSX next.
    And I added a Rock Guardz CF guard and the Straitline DeFacto pedals - which are wider and better for my gigantic feet than the AMP, but still could be wider.




    And because everybody else is showing off the guard!

    I know that everyone who owns an Enduro knows how versatile they are. On a ride last weekend I went with a mate on a Merida Matts hardtail to ride some downhill and XC trails. After riding the downhill sections, I put the GoPro on my chest and videoed a cross country trail. Dave and I are pretty closely matched in fitness and ability, so it goes to show how good the Enduro can be on flatter trails. Here is a link to the video on Youtube if anyone is interested in watching.

    finally here are some recent pics of my '12 enduro comp

    upgrade list includes:
    command post black lite, swapped clamp bodies with a friend for the grip clamp style and kept my red lever.

    anno red stem spacers
    anno red grip lock on clamp.
    anno red North Shore Billet 203mm post mount adapters front and rear
    203mm shimano IceTech rotors front and rear.
    Crank Brothers Mallet 3 pedals
    wheels setup tubeless with gorilla tape
    Schwable Hans Dampf tires front and rear.
    Dual Position air spring, Mission Control DH, Dual Flow Rebound upgrads from bare bones Lyrik R

    new wheels will be coming soon, they are much needed with the crappy rear freehub, i would also like to run a push's monarch plus, formula the one brakes, and when the drivetrain needs replacing it will get XO components, but as long as they work properly the x9/x7 will stay.







    here is was right after i built it up in the shop

    and right after its maiden voyage

    How much do you weigh? I was thinking about going to the heavier spring too, but didn't want to take away too much of the "plushness". I'm about 185lbs...

    I weigh 173, I don't know why but I just couldn't get it to sag correctly without a ridiculous number of turns on the preload collar, swapped to the 600 and it still rides nice and plush, I back off on the lsc and increase the rebound a click or two after I swapped the spring

    Copying from the vikingboy thread:


    26.5 lbs with pedals. My goal with this build was to make it perfect for XC/all-mountain biking, yet convertible for a downhill day. For those I have a set of beefy wheels and tires, flat pedals and a short seatpost/seat. 5 minutes to switch.

    Important Specs:
    Edge Carbon wheels, Edge riser bar.
    Thomson Seatpost and stem.
    SRAM XX shifters and 11-32 cassette.
    S-Works Carbon Cranks with X.O rings/bash
    S-Works Captain 2.2 Rear, S-Works Eskar front.
    Phenom Saddle
    Candy pedals with Ti Spindles
    Formula RX brakes.

    I jumped on top of that when he told me the price.

    Even better that it's an expert model. Middle of the pack.

    +1 for me

    These are my upgrades that are coming in.

    Thank you very much.

    Am thinking of anodizing the frame.

    Photoshopped this right quick.

    Or going with powder coat in a nice bright yellow green color in the bottom right.

    Questions for you.

    Where is the chain stay guard from an newer Enduro?

    What chain do you have?

    Cassette?

    Is that factory anodized?
    If not how did you get the decals on?

    So sick man.

    We're like intellectual twins, your bike is my rendition that was in my head haha.

    Guys, I have a 2012 S-works frame that I'm building up. I'm having a hard time finding the maximum tire width that the frame will accept. Anyone know? Thanks.

    It really depends on the tire, they are all different.

    How do you like the Hans Dampf? What kind of soil conditions are you riding on? Is it a problem on the rear? Too grippy and draggy?

    I've read some great reviews on this tire and even better on hardpack and loose over hardpack, exactly what I'm looking for.

    Thank you.

    Sorry. I should have been more clear about what I was trying to say. Drews asked if a 2.35 tire would fit on his frame and I just meant to say that if my 2.5" tire fits just fine then so should his

    I don't run Hans Dampf tires :/

    It looks like cable death but it works amazingly well and is completely quiet and out of the way both up and down. Had to put stickers/copter tape on frame so that it does not eat the frame but as the cable moves with the post and there is not a mark on the post. I had it a couple of more conventional routes but it annoyed me. Copied it from an article on Jerome Clementz's bike.

    Hey guys, any of you running the 2010-2012 model with 180 mm with the RS Lyrik? Just wondering how bad or good that could be. I am running mine at 170 mm and plush as melted butter on a hot pancake.

    the lyrik only has the option of running at either 160 or 170, no option for 180mm
    and the only difference is the spring side of the fork.

    i have hear of people running 180mm forks without issue though.

    Let me break news for you. The new 2012 Solo Air Spring for the Rock Shox Lyrik does have the option for 160-170-180 base plates.

    Now going back to running the fork at 180, hope someone can chime in with the feeling of the bike, handling, is it worth it, etc.

    At 180 it will make you bike slack, losing your slow speed balance in those technical areas. If your looking for just DH performance, fast and more open trails, then you could get away with a 180 up front.

    A member on this forum had an Enduro running a 180 fork in the front and said he liked it, but also had a 160; for trail riding I'm assuming. Look on the "Post your Enduro & Enduro sl thread". Start from the last page and move forward, the pictures are around the last pages. Look for a white Enduro SL, message him.

    I was going to go with a 180 on my enduro but after talking to a bunch of suspension gurus they told me to stick with 160, better for an AM bike where I live.

    Awesome comment. Well I have it at 170 and honestly can't say I have improved my speed or handling on rough descents. Sure it does something, but maybe I am not that advanced to notice it. I do have to say that changing the 2-Step Air spring with the Solo Air is a night-and-day difference. Plushness all the way, running it at 55 psi (25% sag) with my 200+ pounds makes it lovely. I am also using the newly redesigned Enduro Fork Seals for the Lyrik and they are zero stiction but superb protection from the elements.

    What can I say. I love my Enduro.

    Say, has anyone else noticed with the lyrik solo air, (mine is a 2011 comp) that the fork, when riding rough terrain, that you sometimes feel a top out of the fork? I have my rebound set pretty slow and if I take a hit, the rebound is nice and soft, but when I get a drop off that happens when the fork is near the top already, I often feel it top out.

    Rock shox has already repaired my rebound once, they had it for damn near a month and ended up replacing my uppers due to some manufacturing issue they saw.

    Is this normal on the cheaper version of this fork? I would like to someday upgrade to the whole mission control inerds but cant swing that right now.

    thanks,

    Jeff

    do you have links to any info on this other than the custom OE application for Scott?

    will the 180mm spring work with the production uppers and lowers? if you could get the part?

    Nice Enduro; with the slack headtube that the bike already has, and now with a 170 up front, I'm pretty sure it does the job at descending.

    Jeff, definitely not normal. I would attribute this to lack of negative spring air on the Solo Air which prevents top out. I would try re-assemblying the spring and checking out how does it feel. In the Solo Air spring there is no valve to add or substract negative air, but a fixed amount should be trapped when putting it together. To not highjack this thread, I recommend you searching out this topic on many RS Lyrik posts in mtbr.com.

    Hope it helps.

    Sure, just need to buy part number 11.4015.556.010 and there you go.

    Nice Enduro!

    Is that a 2012 Fox van rc2? How do you like it?

    How do you like the minions up front for trail riding? Thinking about gong to minions in the front after my tires wear down.

    Thanks

    The fork is a 2011 Talas, I replaced the stickers to colour-match the bike. Love the fork, amazing with the new 2012 seals on there

    I've pretty much always run a Minion up front. Tried Ardent and HR but always went back to the trusty Minion. The 2.5 EXO is a great tire. Been running this one tubeless for almost a year and only now are the side lugs starting to get chewed up. I'll buy another when I'm done with this one, probably the 3c EXO this time. I like having the extra bit of confidence this tire brings when run on an AM bike. It's definitely needed as our XC.trails here are full-on DH trails most other places in the world!

    Totally man. I did have an Enduro SL 2008 prior to my 2010, and the AFR shock is too damped and overplatformed. If you can swap it out for a Fox RP2.

    Man, I would swap the Dual Position Air spring for the Solo Air. You would not believe the plushness of not having all those o-rings internals rubbing against the inner stanchions.

    i took the solo air out and installed the dual position. why? because i could, because i wanted to give it a try long term. and now i actually use it all the time when climbing. it makes steeps a little bit easier, it makes longer climbs a bit more comfortable. i really like it and dont dont notice any difference with the "plushness" of it.

    could i have left the solo air in and not worried about it? sure. the enduro still is a great climber for its travel and geometry. but i have absolutely no regrets about installing the dual position. i dig it!

    Thank you for the reply.

    Haha, nice. Yeah here in California we have a wide variety of trails; from fireroads to DH, we have it. I use my Enduro for everything, so I'm trying to build it up to where I can go on a long xc ride yet still be able to handle gap jumps on the DH trails. But I'm also contemplating the idea of picking up a used DH bike for less than $2500 and just leave my Enduro as is.

    Good to hear about the fork, Fox said for 2012 they changed the seals, tune, and darker Kashima coat. So I'm waiting till I can get some real world reviews on it before I buy it, and hopefully it starts picking up because the mtb season is basically here.

    Yeah I'm really tempted to try the minions 2.5 3C EXO up front, just don't know what I'd run in the rear at this moment. How does the tire handle more casual rides? I know it'll handle aggressive riding, just don't want the tire to feel lost when I'm not throwing it over on the outer knobs.

    Was thinking about the Push Industries Monarch Plus RC3 shock.

    I have read too many good reviews about the monarch plus rc3. If I was choosing a rear shock for my Enduro SL again, thats the shock I would go with. Perfect blend of low and high speed dampening, and weighs like 3/4 of a pound.

    Hey Pablo, that`s a Ks dropper you got right ? Is it reliable (?), i`ve read the reviews and have mixed feelings about it, still as the prices went down a bit i am tempted to buy one.

    It is. Is working ok after sending it back twice for Rick to fix it. It is rock solid after three months of abuse, but I am not holding my breath. I can tell the seatpost had its flaws but Rick's service is awesome. Have a look at my story here:

    I have a friend with the RockShox Reverb and it just started failing after six months. So, apparently no bulletproof posts yet.

    2 years and 5 years on my Gravity Droppers, you'll see more of the same comments in the All Mountain forum when dropper post questions are asked.

    Reliable + ugly = Gravity Dropper

    Sexy + unreliable = the rest

    Important Specs:
    Edge Carbon wheels, Edge riser bar.
    Thomson Seatpost and stem.
    SRAM XX shifters and 11-32 cassette.
    S-Works Carbon Cranks with X.O rings/bash
    S-Works Captain 2.2 Rear, S-Works Eskar front.
    Phenom Saddle
    Candy pedals with Ti Spindles
    Formula RX brakes.

    Sweet bike!!!

    Sweet bike and congrats on your purchase! If you don't mind me asking, how much do the enduros tip the scales at? The guy posted above says his weighs in at 26.5 pounds, but I kind of assumed they'd be a bit heavier. Anyway, I've got some saving up to do...!

    I put it on the scale at the bike shop. It weighed 31.4 lbs. Large frame size.

    I was actually surprised at how well it climbs. It climbed everything I took it on today. I decided against the stumpjumper because I liked the way this bike felt so much better.

    Hey guys... I am sure I am in the minority here, but I like to track my distance, time traveled ect. Is anyone running a computer on their through-axle enduro? It looks like there is a long distance between the spokes and the fork arm and I doubt the magnet would register. Just wondering if it is possible to hook one up?

    Mine weighs 33 lbs, it is a comp with my old 2005 Mavic crossmax wheels and a beefier crank and pedals than stock. I am so happy with this bike, my only complaint is the Lyric fork, mine slight rebound issues out of the gate, Rock shox replaced the uppers and something else inside to get the rebound slower, it is better now but on really fast very bumpy trails, I can sometimes feel it top out a bit. I am good with it, it is rare and I may be a bit anal in my demands of perfection.

    I really love it, it climbs really good, a true do it all ride all day kind of a bike.

    Ok so I've got a '12 Enduro Comp with Sram 2x10 transmission, stock that is, and I've noticed that the smaller 24 ring in the front is useless, I never use it and the gear lever is only in the way which results in me changing gears by mistake in some bad situation. Have tried to move the gear lever further towards the stem but this results in that my brake lever is too far away (matchmaker, can't move them separately).
    So now I've been thinking of changing to 1x10 leaving only the 36 ring to the front. Has anyone done this to a ready Enduro? Do I need to change cranks too? What about the ring? Been thinking about a Raceface Single ring or a e13 Guide ring, any thoughts?
    As you can guess, I'm a noob in upgrading bikes :P

    Hey, does anyone have any clue where I can find a set of these chain guides that go along the toptube? Just got my hands on a spesh command post and the bike didn't come with the guides :S

    I'm just about to do the same to my '11 Enduro Evo Expert. I'm going to a 34 tooth ring up front to give me just a bit more easy range if I need it since the bike is a bit heavy and I'll be moving to a place with a lot of long climbs. Anyway, you shouldn't need a new crank, just a chainguide that will accommodate your 36 tooth chainring. I believe the '12 Enduros use an ISCG-05, but just make sure that you get a chain guide that's compatible with that. Otherwise, depending on the system you run, you may need to get new bolts for the single ring you'll be running, though if you're using something with a bash guard you'll be fine with what you've already got. All that's left is to just take off the 24 tooth ring, front deraillieur, and shifter. That's it!
