2021 Specialized Enduro Frame Build

Quite the labor of love, well done! QQ: where did you get those custom bolts for the Enduro linkage? Have done extensive color-tuning of hardware on my Enduro build, but gave up on the proprietary pivot bolts.

It's a cool idea but with long travel droppers what exactly is the downside to running a bit of negative tilt? 180-200mm+ you aren't going to ever have the saddle in the way. Assuming you ride somewhere that is climb then descend and not rolling/flat, no...more

Trail Labs just did an excellent job on my DPX2 for $135 including return shipping. And that covered a re-valve of the rebound stack. You book your day of service in advance so they have a 24-36hr turn around.

This is good news and hopefully they keep shock services near $100. Then you don’t have the philosophical dilemma of whether to pay $220 dollars to service a $500 shock, or just buy a new one.

(*Never mind…. They want $200 for shock services on just about everything. I’d rather just...more

Endcaps? Hard pass. Haven't had to worry about losing those in decades. Dual-clamp grips died because it sucks to have something rigid dig into the outside of your palm when you grab the end of the bars. Why rewind the clock back to both of those headaches?

Uhm, if Orbea doesn't make a downhill bike, why are they talking about DH in this press release?

so, no x2 float option like their team is riding?
edit: ok, on their webside they‘re listing a x2 float option smile
too bad they’re still using superboost (only buy frames), gorgeous bike!

Chapeau! In this MTB world where "parts can be any color, as long as it's black," you opting to go silver is huge breath of fresh air. Very well done.

Nice work w/ the gold/copper tones! QQ tho: how is this an Izzo Blaze when that model was a straight Rock Shox / GX build?
