First Ride: 2016 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR
One year too late, Specialized. If you had come out with this bike last year, it would be sitting my garage. But instead, the space belongs to Giant's Trance SX.

Specialized S-Works Enduro 650B - Review
Of course. You buy a car for the chassis and the engine. Not the upholstery or wheels. Even with a cloth interior and steel wheels, the veyron's price isn't going to be cut in half. Again, cars are a terrible comparison. It's hard to find a car where you can double or triple the base price through purchasing options from the factory. I would much rather have PinkBike them review the top end model then the bottom end model. That way the components are less of an issue for the reviewer and they can focus on how the frame and it's geometry performs. You can easily find reviews of the components that come with the price point model you're looking at.

Specialized S-Works Enduro 650B - Review
If you want to understand how committed a company is to a product, look at what they spend on it. The Stumpy Evo 650 uses stumpy 29er front triangle and the Enduro 650b uses the old 26" Enduro front triangle. Clearly they were given the directive to get a 650b product into production as soon as possible. Coming from a 26" Enduro (2010), I was recently in the market for a 650b trail/enduro bike and went with Giant for the reasons above. If Specialized put in the time, money and effort they did with the Enduro 29er, I think this would be getting much better reviews and accolades. Oh, and they would have kept me as a customer.
