It Really Does Exist! Introducing the 2013 Specialized Enduro 29er

The Enduro S-Works 29 does exist… relief!

The Enduro S-Works 29 does exist… relief!

March 14, 2013

Check out a recent post our friends at NSMB.com did for the launch of the much anticipated Specialized Enduro 29er. This bike could be a game changer!

Specialized had a hard time keeping the Enduro 29er under wraps. Rumours had been tossed around for a while, with the general consensus being that the Big S would not delve into 650B and it was inevitable that we’d see a big wheeler bigger than the capable 130mm Stumpy Evo 29. Photos had surfaced over the past month and it was clear that we’d soon find out what was happening behind closed doors.

This morning, the internet caught fire with some imagery that preceded Specialized’s offical release. We jumped at the chance, but now we’ve got some more official data. The raw numbers: 155mm rear travel, 67.5º head angle, 430mm chainstay, three sizes in both aluminum and carbon. Under 28 pounds for an S-Works model.

A closer look at the seat tube and linkage. 75º effective seat tube, 69º actual seat post, making room for that 155mm of travel. On the right, the new Command Post IR.

The aluminum Enduro Comp 29 will be the first model available in the near future, with carbon models slated for arrival in late summer.

Enduro 29 geometry. Very slight differences in spec on the aluminum versions, no actual geo changes. Interesting to see the chainstay comparisons.

NSMBA Trail Day Update: Expresso on Mt. Fromme

November 26, 2012

Sunday, November 18th marked the last TAP trail day of the 2012 season for the NSMB crew supported by RockShox. Over the season, we double-TAPped Expresso, laying down a total of 12 trail days with MEC doing their own share on the new alignment.

Digger’s vision led the way for Expresso’s new alignment, a more sustainable take on a classic line down Fromme. Even with two solid crews working on Expresso, however, Digger has spent countless hours working on the trail on his own time, making sure every last rock is perfectly placed and covered in solid gold.

Under Digger and Jerry Willows’ guidance, we regularly headed up the hill with 25-30 willing workers for our TAP days, and completed huge sections in a short time. It’s amazing what a focused crew can accomplish, and we really would like to thank each and every one of you who came out to one of our trail days this year.

Thanks for joining us on the ride – here’s to another great year in 2013.
