    Specialized Enduro 29 at Sea Otter?

    Will Specialized be at Sea Otter with some Enduro 29er?
    I am looking for a picture and riding reports of the Enduro Expert model.

    We were just talking on the italian mtb forum about how much marketing money Specialized dropped for that event. Have you seen the video ? Is that a true DH trail ? Hell no. That is pure flowy and fluffy stuff perfectly suited for a 29er imho.
    Still,nothing wrong with that,more power to Specialized.

    That still prove that a 29er have it's place un gravity events, especially enduro.

    We will see how things unfold at the world championships, because in sud africa the track is also a bit like sea otter !

    Agree plus I don't really see a true advantage against 26ers when the win was 100th of a second. A win is a win, can't deny that.

    Specialized headquarters is right over the hill from Sea Otter, they can easily bring all their resources there.

    29ers were not even part of the Sea Otter DH discussion a year or two ago.

    Tho Sea Otter DH is panned as not being manly enough, it still has huge jumps and dusty blown out corners, all at mach-stupid speeds.

    29ers have come a long way.

    And I am not a 29er fan.
