That is of course very subjective but I think Intense still has lots of mystique, makes great bikes and has big respect on the circuit. YT is more of a party brand to me although Gwin and Mulally did a lot to legitimize it.

Well I'd say most on this site prioritize descending prowess over anything else and are willing to make compromises to reach that goal. Long chain stays actually make for a good climbing bike with a nice steep seat tube. 445mm chain stays on one of my ... more »

Except that Ebikes are really awesome as a trail building and maintenance tool.

Maybe people will just learn to accept them because once people put some time in on ebikes they will realize that both non and assist bikes are good.

They sure aren't going away.

Seeing him send a Sentinel down Gnar EWS courses would be ace.

Sounds like he's still going to be racing. Good luck in '19

In addition to saying he 'lost fitness' at the DH races and didn't like how little he got to ride, Martin also mentioned that he felt enduro racing made him a better bike rider. I can see how for some the semi-blind, fully-pinned nature of EWS racing might actually translate into a...more

I'd say Maes proved he can do it. Hill and Maes and Rude for that matter have all shown they can throw down similar fully pinned times on some gnar EWS stages and be close to each other. Properly motivated and correctly trained he could be competitive.

CushCore in the front, which let him ride the flat but also makes throwing in a tube more complicated. Must have been big tire damage to not allow fixing with a plug though.

Bturman, what are your overall thoughts on 29er fork offset? Was the 44 vs 51 noticeable when switching between bikes?

Thanks for the reply. Happy to hear you are going to be looking at the 2018 soon. Keep us posted!

I thought that the ELEVENSIX was not available for either the '17 or '18 Specialized Enduro. Is this not the case? I have a '18 Enduro Pro 29 that I would love to put an ELEVENSIX on.

Great, well thought out review, thanks.
Do you have any time on a '17 or '18 Spec Enduro 29? I am currently on a Large Yeti SB5.5c and it's been an excellent bike but after a week in Whistler on a '17 Norco C9.2 Range (29) that had 20mm more reach I've been wanting a longer bike. I'm 72.5" tall but have an arm span of 74.5. The '18 Enduro has the same reach as the Large Range I enjoyed and of a XL 5.5 @462mm. Any comments on sizing when arm span is greater then height. A XL Enduro has a reach of 483 and I've been considering up-sizing to that as well and using a 33mm stem. I might possible go to.shorter offset fork and maybe at 170mm which would both reduce reach as you commented about above as well. Appreciate any thoughts on sizing and or the Enduro 29. I have considered a Trek slash as well but the deal is better on a Enduro . Bike will be intended to be a enduro race bike in CO.
