Bike Check: Cody Kelley's Specialized Enduro SX - Sea Otter 2014
I tried the 29er stumpjumper expert evo and the 29er enduro expert carbon and I know it seems cliche but genuinely did find the wheels flexy. didn't get on with the stumpy at all (the large was too big and I'm 6'2"!), and while the enduro was way more playful, still seemed less so than I'd like! Which is a shame cos I quite like specialized bikes! The lapierre zesty 650B I tried, again, kinda like the stumpy. just felt too long! again, a shame cos while I've always thought of 29ers as flexy wagon wheels (suspicion confirmed haha) I like the idea of 650B - was just disappointed!

Bike Check: Cody Kelley's Specialized Enduro SX - Sea Otter 2014
I can attest to the fact that this bike is amazing as I've got one, and that's not even being bias! 120mm fork, 10speed road cassette and it's taken everything from fast flowy local trails, full on DH at revolution bike park, jumps, xc jaunts and everything between. Light, low slung, accelerates like a demon and the MOST FUN bike ever. Especially compared to the bevy of 650B and 29ers I tried today at a demo day. They were c*** and made me really appreciate my 26" SX!!!

To The Point: Understanding Bottom Brackets
I took out my BB and put a small branch through. Decided pedalling was outdated.

Mojo Pro Bike Clinic, Clips VS Flats with Neil Donoghue
Always used to ride a good set of flats with a good set of mtb shoes (started with shimano shoes, moved on to 5.10's). This was on both my Demo and specialized enduro. I then changed to clips on my enduro as I was using it more as a go anywhere bike (XC loops etc) and having the clips was defo an advantage for putting the power down and being precise - made me a (slightly) less sloppy rider. The downside though was that when I would take it DHing, I found that no matter how tight I made them, or messed around with cleat angle, I'd always end up unclipping in corners as I apparently twist my feet while cornering. So I thought 'bollocks to this' and went back to flats. Also, the whole "with flats your foot doesn't always sit in the right place" thing is silly. A good pair of shoes with a stiffish sole and grippy pedals and I regularly do sections of runs with my feet in a not perfect position, and it doesn't really affect me. I trust my feet to grip, and they do. Win.

I like what you've done with the stealth cable routing! I had a reverb on my Enduro SX but the moving cable was going to ruin my paint so I took it off... How did you make the hole? and any ideas if this is recommended against by Specialized? cheers

Yeah same! If it's build to ride, am happy to dig!
