2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
Had a ride last week where I put my foot into the front wheel (started to wash, unlocked foot, got tossed around bit) and heard a loud bing which abrupt slow down! I thought for sure I broke a bunch of (very thin) spokes. Nope. nada. good to go... whoa... those lightweight 24 spokes wheels are holding on for me...

2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
@Billjohn6: guess I'm lucky as so far 1 year of riding rough AM at 205# without gear and they are holding up surprisingly well for me (2015 carbon traverse SL). Previous owner who races had issues with Eve and picked the Roval and was very happy, so they have 2+ years on them. I did get a spare ALU Flow EX set for park riding as I'm worried about 24 spoke count (and too nice carbon wheel to trash) but only used those a few days so far. I did manage to crack a 26" derby carbon rim of my DH bike last year, but that was most likely a tire dismount issue...

2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
@Finn1234: I too run 2 sets of wheels on my 2014 Enduo 29, original carbon roval, and a standard 142 cheap Flow EX/Stans for park riding. so far I haven't even had to adjust the RD - surprising given the 2mm cassette offset spec number. Not happy with boost - carbon wheels are plenty stiff (no need for extra 3mm spoke angle) and just tired of ever changing 'standards' - would have been happy keeping 135/150mm 2 sizes and be done....

2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
I'm not getting what the issue is. The spec for the 17 enduro seat post is the same as my 2014 Enduro 29... did I miss something ? (Command Post IRcc, 12 position micro-height adjustable, alien head design, bottom mount cable routing, remote adjust SRL lever, 30.9mm, S: 100mm, M/L/XL: 125mm travel) SEAT BINDER 36.6mm vs 34.9mm for older model - why does it matter ? internal diameter same one (and length - I run a 150mm KS just fine on XL enduro 29)

@sevensixtwo: "Here's how you know press-fit sucks: You have to convert it back to threaded using a Praxis adapter to make it work" Bingo.I do have one for sale for shimano I was using on my Enduro 29 by the way... threaded is much better!

Is That A Five Inch Travel 29er - Video
@AirBud: thanks for the info. Been on sworks E29 for 9 months and love it, though I wish it maybe climbed a bit better (lock the Monarch+ - I am already running Nobbic nic for AM, and will order minion 2.5 for DH) and a slacker head option as I'm considering using it as my park bike and sell my dedicated DH bike (26" Glory). Will have to check the Wreckoning (ideal on paper and big fan of DW - had Iron horse then Ibis for years), but it sounds like the Following maybe isn't really a better climber to start with, and 120mm travel is too little for me (would pick an Ibis Ripley LS otherwise as I loved my Mojos over the years). I will never go back to 26 after riding a fun 29 like the E29 is. I'm 6'3" 205lbs so XL bike make more sense to me anyway...

Ibis Mojo HD XL 650b Pike 26.8lbs unique Black/Black

$2700 USD
This is the HD model (longer travel, slacker 67deg much better in descend, yet climbs better than carbon mojo I had). http://www.ibiscycles.com/bikes/past_models/mojo_hd/ XL but ibis sizes small so if you normally ride a large with other brands you'll be fine on this. This bike is the ONLY Ibis Mojo HD made with stealth Black/Black and was Ibis owner personal bike. I put a white Ibis logo when I got it. Sad to sell it as it's the best bike I've had but I got the 29" itch. While frame is older (Ibis never changed the geometry/frame) it has the latest lower bearing, and most main components (pike, monarch, shifter/derailer/Ring) have about a year on them when I went 1x hence listing as 2014. Some cable rub and scratches, but all cosmetic. I was in the process of going 650b/27 but ended up going 29" on a new bike instead. Pike already 650b and rear shock can easily be limited making the conversion simple (just wheels). But to be honest 27" is hardly noticeable (I rode a friend wheels on it back to back). * XL carbon frame with 160mm travel * 2015 650b Pike - buttery smooth replaces Fox36 * 2014 RockShock Monarch+ ($250 upgrade from Fox rp23 kashima - MUCH better shock) * Magura MT8 carbon brakes (the best but $$$), new 180/160mm Formula rotors (not shown) * Flow wheels/Ibis hubs, Conti Trail king 2.2 mounted tubeless * 1x10 setup with Raceface 30T front NW chain, 11-42T extended cassette with Type2 rear derailleur - no chain drop, no noisy rollers! (I still have the X0 2x setup if you prefer) * carbon cranks & seat post, 70mm bontrager stem, CB 740mm handlebars * no pedals Very light at 26.8 Lbs for a 160mm XL with big tires! ship & paypal extra. No trade. If listed, it's available. feel free to call me. Some cable rub ,scratches chips but all cosmetic.
