    2012 SB 66 Enduro plus?

    Stopped by Bike Source to look at the SB66 today - they had an 'Enduro Plus' build for $400 over the Enduro. Near as I could tell by looking at it, it is the EXACT same build as the endure, just designed to make my bank account $400 lighter..

    Anyone else seen one of these or heard anything re Enduro plus?

    Thanks,

    Oh man, I wish I would have thought to ask them!

    Yeah, did that - they couldn't 'splain it.

    Isn't the plus with the fox 36 instead of the 32?

    The 2012 standard Enduro kit only has basic QR fork and rear end and also cheaper wheels. Going up to the Enduro Plus kits you gain upgraded wheels, 15mm or 20mm thru forks, and 12X142mm thru axle rear end. Huge upgrades if you ask me for only $400.

    i got the 2012 Enduro 36 build (a couple weeks before xmas), and it was pretty much the answer to the wishes I had in 2011 (i.e. through-axle and 36 fork). I put a bash ring on it, so it's a 2x10. Also swapped my dropper post from my old bike onto the 66.

    The only glitch in the build kit was that the bars are 680mm and I'd prefer 720-740, but fortunately that's a pretty inexpensive mod.

    I got a chance to ride a 66 in October, but needed to wait a couple months. Worth the wait, and now I'll wait even more until conditions allow riding. There's a couple feet of snow on the ground where I live, so it'll mostly sit in the garage until late March, i'm afraid.

    Agree!.
    I personally will stick to the 32 for now and if my pedals survive rocks, it stays......... . It is not a lower BB but rather longer wheel base that makes pedaling through rocks a bit tricky.

    Gracias - went back and looked at it tonite - did see the differences - sorry for besmirching the name of Bike Source... they couldn't tell me the difference though and it all 'looked' the same... :-)

    Pulled the trigger on a Race XT today - had a little shipping blemish on it so got a nice chunk off..just gotta wait for some FeeBay $$ to clear thru PainPal and I can pay it off without Momma seeing what she cost...

    The '12 model is a welcomed $200-300 cheaper than the '11 model according to JensonUSA. Which hopefully I will have a large Lime ordered from during the next couple of weeks.

    Anyone knows if there are differences between the '12 and '11 models?

    If you're referring to the SB66, we never produced an '11 model - it's only been a 2012 model since day 1.

    We'll probably be releasing a 2013 model around the end of the summer, but I don't have any info on what - if any - changes will be made to it. The '12 66A has been a great seller and even better performer on the trail, so any changes are likely to be minimal.

    FYI,

    Thanks John

    What's the deal with JensonUSA then? How and why are they marketing your bikes this way?

    The owners manual on the Yeti site says it is for an 11 as well.

    Guys-

    I only handle international sales, so I can't really speak to all the intricacies of domestic pricing, but here's what I think is going on:

    The "2011" 66 Jenson is showing off has the 2011 Enduro kit, which includes a thru-axle fork and a slightly up-specced wheel vs. the 2012 Enduro Kit. The 2012 Enduro kit is a QR front and rear; we did this to reduce the price of our entry-level packages.

    If you want thru-axles front and rear, you'll need to upgrade to the Enduro Plus kit. Enduro Plus includes most of the same parts as the Enduro kit but features thru axles front and rear and the wheels from our XT/Race kit.

    Attached below are our build kits for 2012 (some of these specs are subject to change).

    I see That The new Starter Enduro 575 does not have a 15mm QR , So lower the price point i bet !!!
