DO IT ALL BIKE
Rating:
The Good
Climbs well, Descends even better. Slack geometry. durable. Looks great.
The Bad
The stock shock isnt my favorite but it is decent.
Overall Review:
I was looking for a bike that could both descend and climb. Little did I know that I was getting a bike that could both handle all the downhill I was capable of dishing out and more but I would also be able to give my XC friends a run for the money when out on XC rides. This bike really is the best of both worlds. Im not looking to replace this anytime in the near future.

Climbing, descending, jumping, everything
The Bad
None. This is a rad bike
Overall Review:
Rode this in Moab, UT. It is super confidence inspiring. I felt like I could do anything on this bike. Climbs amazingly well and is a blast coming down in any type of terrain. 5' drop to flat and lots of rocks with absolutely no complaints. This is an awesome bike. It is a little slower than my stumpy EVO on flats and long climbs, but one of the funnest bikes I have ever ridden

The cable routing and rear shock could be better at aggressive speeds.
Overall Review:
I got the s-works carbon 2011 and built with existing parts. Fox 36 RC2, Crossmax SX's etc. Tough and aggressive build but around 30lb. It NEEDS a Great fork as this bike is SO fast and encouraging and just Dangerous. Truly rides has a performance of a DH bike but doesn't feel slow and sluggish everywhere else.
Pedals like a madman, playful and stable. I have found my soulmate!

I would like to run my sag at 30+% as it feels incredible but when you sreally start to get aggressive (which is easy) it starts bottoming out. Would like more progression. Maybe an EVO install? So I run it at 25% and its all good.

Super tough, pedals amazing, super plush, goes ANYWHERE
The Bad
Talas up front might be cool
Overall Review:
Bike is perfect. It does everything it was intended for exactly as you expect it to. It pedals phenomenally with the RP23 pro pedal and 2x10. When you get to the top, it descends any line even the wrong one. Its the perfect balance for a do absolutely everything bike.

Strong, Stiff, Light (Relativley), Perfect Geometry, ISCG Tabs, Pedals Extremely well for a bike with such DH capability.

Have yet to find anything it can't handle. Blindfolded, you will think you are on your DH bike.
The Bad
The Fox RP23 Shock leaves something to be desired when pushed. QR & 135mm rear axle spacing.
Overall Review:
If you can only afford, or only want, one bike...make it an Enduro.

The Enduro is the definition of the "Do It All" bike. I am currently riding a 2010 Enduro which I built from the frame up. It is my 3rd Enduro after riding a 2007 Enduro SL and a 2008 Enduro SL Pro Carbon, I decided to go back to the aluminum version as I continue to ride progressivley more difficult (ie. Rocky) trails in the north east. If I had to do it again, I might go with the carbon frame though.

I currently have my bike set up with a Fox 36 Talas fork and it is the perfect fork for this bike. Dropping the travel for long extended climbs really makes it that much better. I added the Talas after a year of riding on Specialized's own E160 fork. Not that it was bad in any way, I just felt the Fox is a little bit better.

The great thing about the Enduro is you can set it up to do whatever you want it to do. I currently have mine set up with a short Sunline Stem and wide Sunline Bars. I am also currently running a 1x9 (soon to be 1x10) drivetrain with Stylo Cranks, E13 Guidering, MRP G2 Chainguide, an XO rear deraileur, and Easton Havoc AM Wheels.

Before pulling the trigger on the new Enduro, I rode the Trek Remedy & Scratch as well as the new Rocky Mtn. Slayer and for my money, the Spesh was where it's at. Specialized absolutley nailed the geometry on the new Enduro and it by far one of the best, if not the best handling bike I have ever ridden.

I am 6'3" tall and ride a size large frame.
