Troy Brosnan is off the 650b Specialized Enduro and on the Demo 8 at the Fort William BDS round. It's an aluminum frame (not an S-Works carbon) and the fork tells us it's a 650b-equipped machine. Should do well in the big holes of Fort William.

We knew Mitch Ropelato was on one of these in Cairns and are pretty certain that Gwin was on one at World Champs last year. Look at slide 22 in our World Champs qualifying slideshow and note the tires. Specialized doesn't make the Slaughter in in 26-inch.

    I was hoping Specialized would be the last to run 650b on their demos. Is the Enduro Evo a 650b?

    The "big holes" in Fort William are now 650b sized

    Wow, and I thought they would change the suspension design. Hope they have a patent on the proprietary shock crushing technology...

    last year at whistler i saw they where testing a new dh bike. Im guessing this is more just to see how the 650B wheels work. I bet next year we will see an all new demo.

    Just as I said weeks ago. I'm rarely right so I'll just rub it in now…
