    Also is $2000 a good price for a 2-month old 2017 Enduro Comp with normal upgrades? (Grips pedals etc.)

    It's a 165mm DH lite bike. So if you can climb through rock gardens with enough speed it will be fine... I think the Enduro has generally been designed to descend, and climbing as a bonus rather than pushing. I read fully like the green comp. Plus it comes with a dropper and Monarch Plus unlike my 14 comp which had no dropper and A CTD shock.

    I come from a Specialized Pitch Pro 2011. The Enduro Comp 2017 climb better in medium slopes, but when the trail is very steep the front wheel tends to loose contact with the ground.

    Quick question for those who have changed their wheels from the 142+ hubs to standard 142's.
    I've upgraded to some lovely carbon rims, but now the chainline appears off. In first gear on the back pedal the chain keeps slipping, is this normal due to the change or is there a fix?
    I don't appear to have any adjustment in the bb30 crankset to adjust the chainline in towards the bike.
    Any advice on this would be much appreciated.

    I think you just need to adjust your derailleur high and low limits. And maybe just adjust the cable. That's all I did. The cassette is slightly now more outboard than the stock wheelset position.

    Thanks mate. I have adjusted the high position which is where I am having the issues. The cassette seems more towards the hub now, which is why I think I'm having the issue.
    I have been thinking about spacers between the chainring and crank, but this will push the chain/chainring into the chain guide, which doesn't appear to be laterally adjustable.
    I have also contemplated a spacer behind the cassette, but I don't think this will do the engagement of the XD driver much good and could cause premature failure or wear.
    I will have more of a play later today with the tension and stops and see if I can adjust myself out of the issue.
    Thanks for your reply.

    Finally got a picture of my bike I can be proud of. Really enjoying this bike even though I stiiiill don't have it dialed in yet. Took it on a 23 mile ride with 4600' of elevation gain (and descent ) Lots of fun to be had.

    Hello! I have a 09 enduro pro (carbon, campy style headset)
    Iím looking to upgrade my fork and am having an extremely difficult time finding a fork with the right travel to fit the 1-1/8 straight head tube.

    My question is if anyone has had success with installing a tapered fork using a 1.5 external lower cup on a carbon enduro?
    Or is there any other options besides holding out until I come across someone selling an old straight tub long travel fork?

    Specialized has opened up their "Make it yours" custom program to Enduros now. I did the custom Stumpjumper from earlier this year and am loving it. https://www.specialized.com/us/en/custom-bikes

    Smile S-Works Enduro Carbon

    Decided to sell my 2008 S-Works Enduro Carbon, in superb condition for its age and has always been maintained regardless of cost. I still have the documentation that came with it when new. Never ridden in anger, only light casual stuff. Never crashed or probably ever even dropped. It still has the little hidden toolkit under the carbon bottle cage!
    Not sure what to ask for it...sensible ideas?

    I bought a used 2014 S-Works Enduro that was in excellent conditions for $3,000 in December, 2016. I'd be surprised if you find someone willing to pay over $1,800 for it. It might be in excellent shape, but I think the market currently has many Value For Money options that would make better sense for anyone investing more than $2,000, unless that person is a collector looking for this bike.

    Good luck, man!

    Start at $1200. Accept $1000.
    Just random guess based off its age.

    I am interested in buying the rear triangle for a 2013-2016 Enduro 29'er.
    I need the seat stay the most but would like the whole thing.

    If anyone has one laying around from an otherwise decrepit frame, or you have a frame for sale that for some reason wouldn't normally command full market price, PM me please.

    I haven't posted here in a long time... But here is the current state of my Enduro, bought it new in 2009 and have changed just about everything on it.

    I'm starting to toy with the idea of getting a 2015 Enduro Evo, buy it used, but I just can't seem to part ways with this bike. It's either that or I send the suspension to Fox and Push for some service to get them back to new. Not sure whether to do that or put the money into a new bike.

    I've owned it for 9 years and over 5k miles according to my odometer, including 4 seasons worth of races. It's hard to part ways. But I figured id share this with everyone.

    Love it. About the only thing newer bikes have on that is weight. Tapered steerers and less burly builds have dropped the weight. Ride it into the ground.

    2012 Specialized Enduro Comp

    Hi! I'm new here on mtbr but not new to mountain biking.

    So I've been thinking about getting back into riding after a 5 year hiatus.

    For the past week or so I've been looking at bikes and there's one particular bike that has caught my attention. It's a used 2012 Specialized Enduro Comp.

    Why this particular bike has caught my eye is because; 1) I really love the design of the frame, 2) The current owner has taken really good care of the bike, 3) He has done some decent upgrades to the bike, and 4) the price is reasonable (MYR 3,500 which is about $870USD)..and also it happens to be in my size (Small) which is a bonus.

    Now, my concern is should I get this bike due to the fact that it's over 5 years old and it's still on 26" wheels? Would I be missing out a lot by not getting the newer bikes with 27.5 and above sized wheels? For the record I've never ridden a 27.5/29er bikes.

    Below are the current specs of the Enduro Comp and a photo of the bike:

    Size: S
    Handlebar: Sunline 20mm riser
    Stem: Thomson 50mm
    Rotor: Avid F 203mm / R 180mm
    Fork: Rockshox Lyrik 160mm
    Rear Shock: Fox RP2
    Cassette: 10 speed SRAM XO
    Shifter: SRAM XO
    RD: SRAM XO
    Crank: Raceface
    Rim: ZTR Flow EX
    Tyre: Front Specialized Butcher 2.3" / Rear Specialized Purgatory 2.2"
    Chainring: Praxisworks NW 32t
    Saddle post: Thomson
    Hub: Hope pro evo 2
    Brakes: Shimano XT



    So to repeat my question..is a used 2012 Specialized Enduro Comp with the above mentioned specs worth buying at its' asking price of around $870USD?

    In my opinion, yes it is.

    This is a great bike and more of an all rounder than the enduro is these days. I had the 2011 S Works version in XL, which is the same frame design. It served me well but eventually cracked at the BB/Seat tube junction after a hard life being treated like a DH bike at times. I doubt the Ali framed Comp version will suffer from the same issue. A good thing about these bikes is that the geo is more up to date than some of the later iterations. My XL had decent reach of 477mm and the HTA of 66.5 struck a good balance with ample front end grip without having to move around the bike too much. As long as the shock and fork are up to scratch, I don't think you can go wrong.

    Thank you for your feedback, really appreciate it. Yeah i agree with what u said, the bikeís geometry is another big plus as it is very similar to the current ďall mountainĒ bikes/framesetsí geometry. I also think that these older generations of enduroís look better than the current ones hehe.

    Since I will be using it mainly for weekend rides on singletrack, trail parks and some DH..I guess the 26Ē wheels will be good enough? I donít really care for the 3-5 seconds faster times the 27.5/29Ē wheels will provide.

    Again really apreciate your feedback..although I could use a few more opinions from current and former owners of these bikes before I make the purchase.

    Real Enduro

    You guys and your fancy schmanzy new bikes... here's a REAL Enduro! :-)
    Had this bike since new in 2001 and loved it. Saddle, crankset, wheels and forks were still original, which I think is cool. But alas, a Super D I entered last fall '17 was in really cold weather, and that finally killed the old forks and rear shock. Neither are very servicable any more as far as replacement seals, etc., so it's finally retired. It's been a great bike!

    Finally got my shock link from Specialized. Install super easy and set it up in the low setting, and now all I need is the temperature outside to go down so I get in a ride see how it rides and if I can feel the difference or not. Now a 1/2 a degree doesn't sound like much, but is set up properly, it can be. The lowering of the bottom bracket by 8mm should lower the center of gravity for a better feel on corners. Anyone using one have any feed back?

    Stunned me seeing how close its front wheel was to the cranks. That's a big turn off in my book, for anything gravity worthy. Guess they really didn't become "ahead of their time" with geo until the SX models.

    It'll fit no problem. The 2016 link can be mounted up or down. The 2017 can only be mounted one way.

    As far as torque specs. Go to spec's site and then click the bike archive and you should be able to get your owners manual with all the torque specs.

    I don't think that's completely correct. The rear end of the 17/18 shocks are the same as before (where you connect the yoke), but the front mounting reducers have changed. 17/18 is 19mm wide, prior is 22mm wide I believe (same ID). So with an '18 shock you'll need different reducers up front to put it on a '16 bike. Or the ghetto fix, add some nylon washers from the HW store...

    Iíll definitely check into that. I see that fox has many different shock hardware packages so if thatís the case Iíd just pick up the 22mm one correct? Iíve always wrenched on all my bikes but this is the first time tackling rear shocks and linkages etc so Thanks so much for the help!

    You are correct the shock hardware has changed I forgot. But is readily available for less than 10.00 bucks. Check worldwidecyclery, Art's or ebay.

    How would a 2016 S-Works compare to the most recent models?

    Reviews make it seem like they are super outdated. Is it really that big of a difference?

    Going on Ebay it looks like they are going about $2700 but I have one lined up for a little less. Would a be better served spending an extra grand for modern geometry?

    Their a nice all all arounder, I had a 2015 and now a 2017. The 15 was a better daily driver. My 17 is for sale if interested

    I had the Gen 1 enduro with a pike and DB inline IL. It's a great all rounder. I have an 18' enduro with a Fox 36 and X2. It's a much more capable descender but is not as lively on rolling terrain as the original. I also have the 19' stumpy ST which is almost as capable as the original enduro.

    Surprised no one responded to your request months ago. Those L Enduros must be keepers, though I'm not surprised. They're very well dialed. Figured with all the new bikes coming out, someone might've gotten an itch and wanted to appease the curiosity, considering the E29 beat them to the game years ago.

    Wouldn't be surprised if people try offering you mediums though, considering they're not as dialed in the smaller sizes.

    Reviews make it seem like they are super outdated. Is it really that big of a difference?

    Going on Ebay it looks like they are going about $2700 but I have one lined up for a little less. Would a be better served spending an extra grand for modern geometry?
    Geo and fit is completely different. The 2018 is way longer reach than 2016. 2017 was inbetweener year where size didnt change much but angles did.
