    Question for the experts! Help!

    Hi all,

    I'm about to buy an Enduro Elite 2006 but I realize that there are 2 versions of the frame!!!! See the superior tube on the pictures (straight or curved). Can you tell me what the difference is? I'm lost (size? gender? ...).

    Thanks very much for helping me!!!!!!!!!

    I'm no expert....

    ...but it looks like a different frame size to me. The lower pic looks like a LG or XL, the top looks like a M.

    OK Rock, thanks for your help. I am not 100% convinced but you may be right!

    Any other opinion?

    I am pretty sure that Rock is right. I think that the large and the XL had straight tubes and the small had a curved (I am not too sure about the Med.)

    here is the archive website for the 06 enduros

    I assume you know that the bottom one is an S-Works and not an Elite

    and now that i think of it i am not convinced that the bottom one is an 06, were the 06 S-Works not brown in color?

    Hello! Thanks very much!

    Yes, it's an "S", which in my case, sucks ... , I sorted that out a minute ago. The M has the standard straight tube, only the S is different.

    Thanks again and good ride,
    Greg.

    You may be right but it was for illustration purpose only! I was looking at the other one i.e. the Elite.

    Many thanks!

    correct guys. Curved top tube = small frame. That Sworks model is probably '05, judging by the crap rear shock. Later models got Fox DHX's.

    ... and if we just ... Like I said...

    ...I'm no expert. Small, medium, whatever.
    I guess I was just saying different frame sizes, not sure about specifics. I'm glad you got it figured out.
