    Thanks!!!

    I wanted to see this great bike and how you guys had yours set-up. I just can't wait to finally put mine together, but I gotta' wait until I get the wheels, tires, and crankset (I want to ride it so bad, I'm in agony! ). Thanks again, guys! Anymore?

    You're gonna love it - the ride is nimble and can CLIMB, but will soak up lots of hits. I rode mine pretty hard at downieville and absolutely zero problems. Best part is you can ride the S-Works Enduro all day and still feel comfortable.

    I'd be goin' crazy too waiting for my new ride

    I will try to get a good picture this weekend as my stock bike is not really what it used to be.

    Changes I have made:
    • Galfer 185 Rotor up front (no more noise and more power)
    • Hutchinson Spyder tubless light tires
    • Specialized Alias saddle
    • Yetti lock-on grips
    • rear shock mud protector
    • Lizard skid protector on drive side seat stay (my shoe was rubbing the ano off)

    Are you using a standard QR axle and skewer with your "8 rotor? I heard that you have to use a 20mm axle for that rotor on the fork. Is this true?

    185 mm isn't 8 inches. It's closer to 7. I think it was prior to this year that you couldn't run a 8 inch rotor, because the braking forces would either crack the dropouts or disc tabs.

    Fox has no problem with running a 7 inch 180 mm rotor it's the bigger 8 inch 203mm rotor that they didn't recommend up to last year.

    Good job! Full-custom bike

    Here's my custom S-works Enduro made from frame up. It's lighter than 04 S-works bike weighing about 25.6 lbs. Parts specs include Magura Marta SL brakes, DT Swiss custom wheelset, Easton carbon riser, FRM WebStem Ti, etc. It's a blast to ride! I'm thinking about upgrading the fork (Talas R) to '06 Fox Float 130 XTT.

    Good job! More!

    Thanks to all who posted! I'm getting some ideas based on your set-ups. I'm waiting for my wheelset which is going to be King hubs, with DT Swiss XR4.1d disc rims and Super Comp spokes. Not to mention, the crankset is still up in the air (XTR, XT, Race Face, etc.). I'm not sure, yet. Thanks again!

    Here's mine!

    Built in the UK from the frame up. I also have a Turner Burner and I'm not sure which one I like more. The 04 S-Works is a great bike!

    Hi BeatVibe,

    Nothing special, just stuff that works in our UK weather. That pic was taken just after I finished building it earlier in the year - it's a bit more beaten up now!

    05 Vanilla RLC
    XT Drivetrain
    Hope XC/Mavic XM321 (I'm pretty heavy)
    Thomson stem/post
    Hope Mono Mini brakes/Hope headset/post clamp
    Cinder tyres/Pure V seat
    Easton bars/ODI lock-on grips

    The bike rides really well. I picked up the frame in the sales over here for 800 and built it up over three months. I didn't really need it, but it had such a great rep and I enjoy a project.....I find myself riding it more than anything else now.

    I don't know what it weighs, but that doesn't bother me as I could easily lose the bikes' whole weight off myself and survive, if you see what I mean!

    Spend a bit of time setting it up correctly and you can't go wrong. You have got yourself a teriffic bike - enjoy it.

    Cheers,

    Tidybeard

    By the way....

    You're joining an exclusive club of good people. Murchman helped me out when I was putting mine together (sorry about your wheel, Murchman) with some info and reviews. Top guy!

    Also, nice quote from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. That's where my sig comes from. I'm sadly old enough to have watched it at the cinema when it first came out and it's still one of my favourite films.

    I can't wait to complete my build, but I have to wait (need more $$$ for some wheels and crankset ). Enjoy your bike!

    I'll put my S-Works on here as soon as my wheels come back.

    TidyBeard, Need info on wet weather riding!!!

    Tidy Beard...or anyone for that matter...

    I ride an '04 Enduor S-Works myself. I live in Germany and the weather will soon become wet and I think very similar to what you have in the UK. What would you recommend for fenders for the Enduro. I will be riding all winter so it will see wet, mud, snow, and probably some blood too and snot too. Also, what booties or shoe coverings do you recommend for warmth? Thanks...

    Hello....

    Hi Spine Shank,

    In the winter I use Crud Catchers on the downtube (you can see on in my pic) and on the seatpost (which isn't in the pic), which work very well. I have used them for years and they're very well designed.

    Here's what they look like if you're not familiar.

    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com//...x?ModelID=1767

    The shock protector is always on and again, does a great job.

    With regards to clothing, I use layering so something like a 100 weight fleece (it it's really cold perhaps a 200) and either a windproof jacket if it's dry or a medium weight waterproof if it's not (something like Gore-tex XCR, but you can get similar stuff cheaper).
    Down below I'll wear some lycra cycling shorts with some light fleece pants and again some waterproof overtrousers if it's wet.
    For shoes I'm not a fan of clipless pedals - I use flats so I wear some thick socks and some Gore-tex XCR trail shoes, which are certainly waterproof and warm enough.

    Of course, all the above depends on how hot you run and your budget. For what it's worth, I find that the crud catchers keep the majority of the crap off my clothes - I just need them to keep the rain off!

    Good luck, and enjoy your bike!

    Thanks Tiny Beard!

    Thanks for your quick get back. I have ordered from Chain Reaction before. Do you find it necessary to use a rear fender with the shock fender too? I guess what I mean is will the shock fender keep enough off you too?

    No, the shock fender just keeps stuff off the shock. if you want to keep your back from getting very dirty, you'll need the rear fender too.

    Good luck!
