    Not that it matters at all, but why do you have an '08 fork on that bad boy?

    Yes. I agree with this statement 100%. And that's precisely why I bought a 2008 Enduro Comp rather than a 2009 Enduro Comp. However, the 2009 S-Works came with the e150, and it came in a badass black scheme! (See link: http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...7&menuItemId=0)

    So again, why the '08 e150 instead of the '09?

    (Either way, AWESOME looking bike!)

    2008 Comp

    Here's my 2008 Comp, with some minor upgrades (I'm working with a very limited budget). I usually run with CB Candy's, but these Kona Wah-Wah's happen to fit the color scheme perfectly!

    The frame was a warranty replacement. The rest of the bike is an '07.

    I originally planned on getting a matching gold seatpost but decided it was too wimpy for a clydesdale like me. I'll probably get a gold seatpost clamp or something to match the handlebars.

    just built itwed night. So far I like it pretty well. Lost that fancy tear-drop shapped nut out of the rocker though. About 30 miles this week and I think it is breaking in nicely. I prefer the single crown fork for x-ups myself



    Not much out there prettier than this.

    Built Fri. afternoon. Bought the frameset ('07 S-works SL) from my brother so he can get an '09 S-works Enduro SL tom.. I upgraded from an '07 Stumpy FSR Expert because I started bottoming out the suspension. I am impressed with the way the Enduro climbs and handle tight singletrack, great bike. If anyone is in a market for a great condition Stumpy FSR expert, still have the frame and Fox talas RL for sale .

    BTW, with the candy sl pedals mine came out of the box at 28 lb 11 oz. Not bad for 6 inches of travel, 2.3 tires w/tubes, and a remote adjustable seat post.

    Here is mine (an 08 Pro Carbon). Pretty much stock apart from the "TF Tuned Mick Modded" e150 and tubeless conversion. It is a large and weighed 29lbs before the tubeless conversion. Will replace the wheels the next time they go pop (already repaired them once). Thinking of fitting DMR V12's instead of SPDs too...



    I don't tend to ride it as much during the winter as the trails turn into the Somme around here I stick to the road bike instead.

    Specialized Enduro Pro 2004 model fully customized

    Hello and bonjour,

    I feel the need to fill the net with more smut so, here is a 2004 Specialized Enduro Pro that is fully customized if anyone cares... read on!

    Specs:

    Rock Shox Lyrik coil U-turn
    with high and low speed compression, rebound and flood gate with 160 mm. of travel
    2009 BETD aftermarket suspension link from the UK
    2009 Fox DHX air 5.0 eye to eye 200 mm. stroke 57 mm.
    Unlike the stock Fox float R 190 mm. by 50 mm. stroke
    (new rear wheel travel is 165 mm. in combination with the rear linkage)!!!
    Easton carbon fiber monkey lite CT2 DH bar (nice and wide for me that is...!)
    Woodman components four bolt short stem (super tight)
    Race Face Diablos seat post (super solid triple butted)
    Fi'zi:k Atlas saddle (ample!)
    Mavic 729 EX rims with a White Industries Chub hub with 20 mm. axle and a Hope Bulb rear hub, heavy gauge spokes with double butted spokes on the front wheel
    2.4 Maxxis Advantage tires for the moment (very nice tires) I probably get a second pair.
    Oury lock on grips
    Shimano XT shifters
    LX front and rear derailleurs... Waiting on a Saint medium cage contraption!
    Three chain rings up front (no joke it still climbs) Specialized and Truvativ Cranks 50/50
    XT cassette
    Avid Juicy 3 brakes 203 mm. front and rear (yeah, yeah their not very serviceable) but they work when dialed-in like no other!
    Custom rear wheel mud guard (one of a kind)
    Custom inclosed cable routings for engaged riding style (Snake carbon kevlar) I've had them since 2004 and they are still awesome even though having been exposed to very cold and harsh conditions nearly every day of the year!
    Flat pedals by wellgo
    Waiting on Specialized flat pedals in gold or some Penthouse flats in the Bad Leroy Brown finish

    The bottom line is this rig really rails and flies too, in the French Alpes or on any given local trail wherever they may be!

    If, you have nothing better to do please feel free to ask any questions about this Enduro. I have yet to see anything even close to it. I had to do some reading, measuring and tweaking to fit it all together. This is a budget boys dream! This is an attempt to have three bikes in one. (Enduro SX, Big Hit and Demo) Perhaps, you too know of another 2002-2004 Specialized Enduro Pro that is fully modified and ready to roll very fast! Take a gander at the photos!

    Ciao!

    I'll get some pictures of it waiting on the library shelf developed soon and post them, but for now these crummy IMac photos will have to do.

    All the best,

    Finished this about three months ago and it rocks. Kudos to Specialized for this design; super versatile and super fun. It can handle a bit of everything - pedals very well too. Has a 7.875x2.25" RP23 out back so travel is almost 5" now. Outdated picture - since added 36 Talas RC2, XTR M970 kit all around, Schwalbe Big Betty 2.4's and Easton EC90 Zero Carbon post. Still have yet to weigh it, but I am suspecting around 30lbs. Nice bikes everyone!

    Hey DSG, how do you like the TF tuned e150? How much better does the fork perform? Thanks.

    Speedball,

    Nice raw boost valve bottom-out dial!

    Darkshadow,

    Nice KMC gold chain! I have the same kind on my enduro!

    Edray,

    Chris King! What? Pish posh! No really that's the real deal! There is serviceability beyond compare with their products.

    I can recommend the TF Tuned Mick Mod 100%. If your fork needs a service, the mick mod is a no brainer because TF Tuned made the mod for free as part of the service

    I occasionally ride along the canal toepath on my way to my local trails. The toepath primarily consists of small flint type stones embedded in the ground. The e150 previously didn't ever seem to react to the small, frequent stutter bumps (you felt the bumps through the handlebars). That was with the fork correctly setup for my weight, etc...

    The fork is now MUCH more active in the same conditions. It also helps on some downhill runs where the surface is covered in different sized stones and rocks. The fork tracks the terrain and eats the stones and rocks much better than before. The low speed compression adjustment still works as expected and there isn't any noticeable increase in fork diving under heavy braking either.

    For me, it makes a great fork perfect

    Can someone explain EXACTLY what this is, and how it affects the performance of the fork? From my understanding, it involves an cutting a port in the spike valve to allow more flow... or something.

    I'm terrified to dismantle the internals of my e150/AFR; is there anyone in the States who tunes these components?

    Kelstr? PB Matrix? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?

    You can also send in to Specialized to get your stuff tuned. They do the mick tune as well and apparently change other aspects of the fork behavior based on your requests (I asked for faster rebound in addition to the 2009 mick tune). I also told them I thought the AFR shock is not so great over chatter bumps >_>

    I did this recently through Specialized and will hopefully be posting ride impression soon.

    Thansk for the info. Ill look into it when my fork needs to be serviced. Im actually affraid to touch it cause its soo plush right now, lol. Im not sure if something went wrong but it has really loosened up. Love it.

    Here's my SL history: Top 07 SL Pro
    Middle 08 SL Expert
    Bottom 08 SL S-Works.

    This bike is brilliant, more than enough for all the ups and down in Brechfa. So much that there's no need to buy a new bike yet...

    I have been thinking of getting a night riding hardtail but I just haven't got round to it.

    My other history with the enduro's in an 05 S-Works and a 06 S-Works.

    It's the 200/57mm Version of the DHX ! The same size like the AFR. It works fantastic. Best shock for an agressive riding Enduro. It feels like more stroke but the shock works so soft and it allows more effective riding. It drives much more better than before ! And it allowes more settings by driving. Very good deal !!

    Oh this is the new Enduro thread, eh?

    ....'guess I'll cross-post this here:

    This is what my 2007 comp used to look like:


    and this is what it looks like now:




    New stuff:

    Velocity Blunt wheels (rear is an XT hub, front is Specializeds' own hub for the E-150. I bought a new one for this in black.)
    Alligator Wind Cutter rotors coated in titanium nitride for the golden look
    Saint/SLX rear cogset. saved a half pound over the old stock set.
    Sunline V1 handlebars in dark gray.
    Manitou Evolver ISX-6 rear shock
    Nokian Freddie's Revenz 2.3 inch studded tires with 336 studs
    Crank Bros. 5050 platforms in gold/black for snow riding.
    a new Sram chain
    E-150 has been custom valved/tuned by Specialized

    oh, and the ergo grips I've had for a long time, but they aren't in the old pic up top. Man they help so much
    I also swapped to a WTB Speed V Pro-gel since the old pic. So comfy I don't absolutely need a chamois.

    The Enduro Specialized manual says it's 222.3/63.5 mm ( 8.75" / 2.5" )

    Funny that yours works fine being much shorter.

    Yeah that's a missprint. 7.87x2.25 is the correct size. My Evolver ISX-6 bolted right on.

    I think that's the first Black/Red 2009 comp that I've seen posted on here. Nice find.

    How could the shock only be 2.875 long.

    cable clearance ?

    Newb to Enduro here ... what about the cable routing underneath the Bottom Bracket. Sure looks like they are prone to damage or getting snagged on a foreign object. What's your experience ?

    Have been running My SL for almost 2 years and have never had one problem with the cable routing. I ride it aggressively. Banging over large rocks and logs and have never caught it on anything. As long as you keep the slack of the cables under your largest ring or in my case a bash guard, it is fine.

    Old School. 2001 Enduro Pro still going strong. Of course there have been some upgrades...

    I'm on my second enduro now. Decided a little over a year ago to jump up from my '03 pro to a '07 expert. Friggen love this line of bikes.

    The new enduro's are so sexy but of course i'm gonna have to wait three years before i can ever afford one, and by then they will probably have released a new design!

    Anyways, im at school now (and away from my bike ) so ill have to take some pics when i get home again.

    The cable routing has been trouble free after over two years and hundreds of hours of BC singletrack along with Whistler and Mount Washington bike parks. I am perplexed by peoples' concern.

    it sets the head angle to either 67 degrees or 67.9 degrees. also raises and lowers the bottom bracket height as well.

    as for the cable routing, i've just set mine up so that it runs across the top tube and down the seatstays

    My 2007 Enduro. Only components that are stock are the brakes, seatpost, derailleurs and handlebars. Running 160mm front, 164mm rear and loving it.

    Jeenyus-Nice looking ride! Is that a Fox 36 Talas? If it is, how do you like it? What type of riding do you do with the bike? Height of jumps? Thinking of ditching the E150 on my '07 Enduro SL for the Talas. Thanks .

    Thanks! It is a 2010 Talas 36 III RC2. I honestly think the small-bumps could feel better than it does right now. I need to go in and check the oil levels and replace the seals. There are some reports of forks coming from the factory with too little oil in them. I originally had a 2006 Talas 36 R that felt much better.

    I mostly do 'all mountain'. If you're familiar with Northern California, I ride places like Soquel Demonstration forest and Skeggs, with the occasional trip to Northstar and Downieville.

    If you don't think you need travel adjust I'd recommend looking into a coil fork like the 36 Van RC2. If you're one of the lucky ones with a reliable E-150, there isn't too much to be offered by going to a Talas besides more options for hubs and a quick release axle

    Jeenyus-Thank you for your objective input . I just had my E150 replaced by Spec, however, I just don't have the confidence with reliability and consistent performance of the E150. There seems to be a lack of consistency with performance between the E150 I have on my '07 S-works and the E150's of my 2 brothers who has an '08 carbon pro, and '09 S-works respectively. Theirs have a much smoother stroke travel compared to the suspension on mine. I do like how the E150 tracks riding hard through roots and rocks and after a jump.

    Thanks again for the input . Take care of that ride, and ride safe.

    Ahh i see. The boxxers would probably be schweet if you're doing a lot of shuttle/push up type stuff, but it seems like they would be too heavy and plush for a lot of rolling hills or climbing. Just my two cents tho, If you do put some on i'd love to hear what u think of them.

    I've got the lyrik soloair's on my '07 enduro expert. They are under 5 lbs and when the work they are my favorite fork ever, but they have had to be repaired twice so alas i will be switching back to fox when it comes time to rebuild.

    My biggest concern if i was putting boxxers on my enduro would be the fact that it is a fairly plush fork, which doesnt allow for very efficient pedaling. I guess the new ones have the compression knob up top, which is my favorite feature of the lyrik, which makes it much stiffer for climbs. If u can pick one up with the compression option i say go for it

    it's an air fork. it can be as plush or as firm as i make it and it has similar compression to the lyrik.

    Because Boxxer WC seems to be THE fork in professional DH racing scene, it must be possible to tune it just to way you like it.

    but it's adjustable. that's what i don't understand. if it is too plush, you bump up the air pressure a few psi.

    my new '09 Comp...not ridden yet. Nothing too exciting - all stock, except i put a WTB Timberwolf 2.4 on the front, and a Maxxis Highroller 2.35 on the back for a little more beefiness than the stock tires. Oh and I put my Shimano DX M647 pedals on it..

    I'm loving the ISX vs. the AFR. The ISX has really good mid-stroke support, combined with the volume adjustment, it gives the shock a really positive feel. It doesn't overcompensate like many air shocks are known to do and therefore avoids the "flat tire" effect and become more predictable across the board. Its nicely sensitive and even though it doesn't have any of the normal bob fighting things like a platform or instant compression switch, its really well behaved and pedals as well as a modestly set Swinger SPV and rides high in its travel. The only time I might miss the 4 way switch from the AFR would be on paved road or long sections of smooth gravel road.

    I also got it really cheap, which makes it that much more worth it.

    The only negatives I can say at this point is that you do need to check the air pressure once or twice per week. This may just be because I'm riding in the Alaskan winter right now. Though even if that doesn't change in warmer weather, I can deal with topping the air off once a week or so, considering all the positives.

    The other negative is that the main chamber schrader valve is on a "stem" that is threaded into the body. It comes unthreaded pretty easily, which can make filling it up a little annoying.

    Chameleoneel,
    thanx for your reply. I am not shure wheter to buy an Fox DHX Air 5.0 or the ISX-6. Maybe I also would miss the pro pedal riding the ISX, but the price is much better. With my AFR I love using the platform when climbing steep terrain...


    edit:
    is it possible to mount the ISX in the "low" position (maybe the blue rebound (?) knob would not fit any more ?)

    By the way, this is my bike:

    I think the way I have it mounted is the best for the Enduro SL. The rebound knob is usable right there and after a few rides it tends to not be something you mess with a lot. I'm not sure if the shock would fit with the piggyback on the bottom. It is possible to let the air out and twist the shock so that all of the knobs/controls are on the same side, but then the main air valve would be on the right side of the bike obscured by the chainrings which would make it difficult to put air in.

    This is not what i was trying to ask, sorry for my english.

    The Enduro SL comes with two possible ways to mount the damper, "high" and "low". Your ISX seems to be mounted in the "high" position. So i was wondering if its because you like it like that, or if its because of the rebound knob, which would maybe get in contact with the frame when mounted in the low position...

    OH! Yeah I misunderstood.

    Yes I like it in the high position for all around riding. On relatively flat ground, I don't like the way the bike feels while turning in the low/slack position. If I were to plan ahead a mostly downhill run, then I'd try running the low/slack position.

    2008 enduro comp

    I guess you can call it a comp. There are very few parts left that are original. it is spec'd as follows:

    Dt swiss 5.1d rims with Hadley rear hub, xt cassette. 185mm g3 rotors
    xt m775 crank with cb candy c pedals
    Avid elixir cr brakes
    Thomson elite seatpost
    Specialized henge sl saddle
    X9 shifters and der
    Specialized enduro carbon fiber bar 2010

    I have managed to get my large m5 enduro comp to just over 29 lbs
    Not as fancy as some but gets the job done.
    Trying to add pictures but i think the file size is to big.

    Ha! That's my old frame! Still has the Vienna Bike Shop sticker on the seat tube and the grind king sticker on the down tube. Did you buy it off of ebay a few years ago?

    DUDE! How do you have the front hub set up on those 2200s? Been thinking about a set of those for my SL but wasnt sure if I wanted to lace it to my Specialized hub or go another way. Looks like you still have the stock axel on there.

    when i got the wheels it was an impulse buy because they were on sale at jensonusa, i had it planned to lace them up on the stock specialized front hub, but when they came in i took some measurements with my digital caliper and it all added up to the fact that i would be able to use the hubs with no issues.

    Its pretty easy, yes its using the stock 25mm thru axle and mounting hardware, all i did when i got the wheel is take out the bearings it came with and replaced it with the the bearings and spacers plus inner tube from the stock 420sl wheel the enduro came with. Its a perfect fit. I did experience an offset issue with the hub being off center by .60mm +/- ( very minor) on the brake side, but i believe shimming the hub or dishing the wheel should fix the problem. Other than that, its a perfect fit

    mnm awesome setup. Does your stock 420sl wheelset use the 'stout' hub? I'm asking becasue I have said 'stout' hub and wonder if the bearings will swap into 2200s hub and allow use of the axle...Thanks!

    what do you mean by stout hub? the bearings from the specialized 25mm thru axle hub fit in just fine in the e2200 front hub with no problems.

    Well I bought an e150 and it came w/ a 25mm hub, I thought it was called the 'Specialized Stout' hub. Not sure if it's what comes on the 420 sl wheelset or not, so I was trying to figure that out. Eitherway, just pulled the trigger on those 2200's, sounds like it should be straightforward.

    Downhill AND uphill performance is a night and day difference for me compared to the DHX air that was on it. I really like the way the bike rides as it sits now. The only thing I would consider changing is putting a Ti spring and a beefier set of breaks.

    It's a Fox DHX Coil 5.0 with a 400 lb spring. 2.75 by 8.75 (.25inches more stroke than stock). Just fits in there without frame contact on my large frame. Make sure if you are getting a shock that the reservoir is short enough to fit.
