    What would a 2013 Specialized Enduro Comp go for?

    It is a 2013 Specialized Enduro Comp 26r. Full Fox suspension x9 rear Deralieur, x7 front Deralieur, x9 shifters, brand new ground controll rear tire, front tire is in great shape. There is no dents at all in the frame just a few scrapes from the cables rubbing and a few nicks from rocks kicking up. The bike is cleaned after every ride, and when ever there is a problem it is brought to the shop and fixed by the pros. The rims are in great shape other then the rear one is bent so slightly you have to take it off and have it inspected to notice it. There is no rust on any of the components. Very well maintained. The bike shifts and rides like it is new. Everything is stock except the breaks, pedals, and seat post. For the brakes I had Avid Elixer 9s put on, the seat post is a specialized command backlight post, and the pedals are specialized platform pedals. The bike is very clean, and very well maintained. The rear shock is being rebuilt at the moment. Any ball park of a price would be apriciated, I am not selling it right now just want to see what I could get for it. Thanks.

    Not a definate to selling it, just wanna see what I could get for it, because I'm looking at the new enduros with the 29 inch tires. I ride my dad's 29er and fell in love with the tires. nvphatty, I'll check it out, but my bike is in really good condition, close to new, and idk if that will take the into account

    29ers are yesterdays news, why not hop on the 27.5 bandwagon? or better yet the tried and true 26ers since they aren't going anywhere soon.

    I'll check it out, but my bike is in really good condition, close to new, and idk if that will take the into account
    so is my 08 model like new condition but even if someone made me a killer offer i doubt i would sell it for sentimental reasons.

    I'm just thinking, not set in stone yet. I love the Enduros, and wouldn't want anything but one. I like the 29ers are a lot faster than the 26ers. Only reason why I was considering it. But the more I think, for the amount of time I would need a 29er, I don't think it's worth $1,000. I love my bike but in love the 29ers. I just need to keep thinking, thanks for the help

    This thread is going to explode into a 26 vs 29.

    That said, if you're not racing, you don't need the fastest bike. You only need the most fun bike. For me it's the 26er all mountain.

    That's why idk what to do, I race and I free ride. I have my dad's carbon 29er, really great fast bike, but the suspension is too stiff and kills my back in mid race, I have a aluminum all mountain bike that isn't as fast but is better for my back.

    No it won't. It's not like it's a completely mundane issue of personal preference that people blow up into passionate, ideological outrage or anything.

    I like 29er. I'll almost certainly never go to 26er/650b for anything outside of straight DH, and even then I don't see the point. That said, I could literally not give fewer shits about anyone else's riding preferences. I will never ever try to debate away anyone else's reasons for riding their size of choice, because whatever the choice and whatever the reason they are inherently right. Spin whatever size you want, just get out and ride.

    Well said, let's try to avoid the 26 vs 29 and even 27.5 argument. Everyone should ride whatever feels best to him. And remember, everyone is different!

    Working in a Specialized shop, I have time on a few E26 and I currently own a E29 Comp.. The 29" version of the Enduro is that much better than the 26". Better climbing, better cornering, and better descending. They adjusted the geometry to keep the bigger wheels still nimble.

    I will say that I have never liked the 26" Enduro and am not a huge FSR fan, but the 29" version is really that much better than the 26" version and its an absolutely great preforming bike..

    See what the God of bikes has to say about it..

    Similar to cars, the biggest decrease in value is the minute you leave the shop with the bike for the first time. Remember that the frame warranty wont transfer. I think bicyclebluebook.com isn't far off for their estimate.

    Well, the best option would be to have both bikes. One for freeride and one for racing. Although some of the newer carbon bikes like an Ibis Ripley I assume that can do both reasonably well.
    If you already like your Enduro, why not keep it and save for a small travel dual suspension 29er XC machine?

    What would a 2013 Specialized Enduro Comp go for?

    I'd ask $1700 for that bike.

    Best way to figure the value is save a search on eBay for your exact bike and look at past transactions as well and monitor the sales. Also search Craigslist and Pinkbike. These 3 areas will give you a real market value.

    I have bought 2 Enduro Experts a year old (2010 and 2012) and was able to buy them for 40-50% off of full retail. I have never quite understood Specialized, but their bikes fall almost 50% within a year, and then will hold that value for the next few years. You can buy one a year to a year and a half old, ride it for a few years, and sell it close to what you buy it for. Not a bad way to go if you are in to saving money.

    If you are looking for a value and bought your bike new, you probably won't like reading this.

    I'm a 26 inch guy, but the 29er Enduros are pretty sweet.
