    Specialized Suspension??? How is it holding up?

    I have read most of the SL thread and researched as much as I can, but it's time for an update.

    How is you specialized suspension holding up? and how agressive a rider are you?(as in "I am the kind of rider who hits drops all the time" (but they are only 2' tall ))

    I am thinking about buying one... but I am leaning towards the SX... bcz I ride a lot of FR

    I haven't had any trouble with it. I pop off of every jump I run into on my rides. I wouldn't guess I am getting more than three feet, however. I weigh 170 pounds.

    I have heard of some problems with the Specialized suspension. Mechanics have told me the stuff is very serviceable and Specialzed sends parts out overnight so there is very little downtime.

    I'm not concerned about it at all. The E150 is a dream piece of equipment.

    6 rides

    I ride fairly aggressive. No big jumps just hits. LOTS of roots and large rocks.
    2 footers... yeeehah! Me too. Sorry I am 43, worried about MY suspension more than the bikes.

    The bike has been flawless.
