Was on the Cane Creek Lounge live chat with Specialized development bods Brandon Sloan and Jason Chamberlain and the good people of Crank Creek. I asked this question:

"Will there be a legacy option to fit a CCDB air or coil to the 2010-2012 Enduro? The people demand it! ;-)"

Cane Creek replied:
"Martin, this is something that we are looking into. We are still gauging the interest to do the custom parts required."

So basically we need to show some strong interest if we want this to happen.

Must say the chat was really good with many questions answered inlcuding the very valid reason for no small 29er enduro, no 650b bikes yet etc. Top job Big Grin

This would be awesome. I can't tell how shirty it is of specialized to use propriety parts on just about all of their bikes. I have been looking to replace my enduro s-works because I'm either stuck with the shitty rp23 or use the evo kit that I was lucky enough to gt my hands on.

Sorry if my question is a bit idiot, but what's the issue with the Enduro linkage ? I own a '11 Expert Evo by the way, and I am thinking of a CCDBa or a BOS Kirk

Instead of a rotating pivot in the shock eye, specialized uses a clevis that mounts to the shock, this way they can use cartridge bearings at the end of the clevis. The shock bushing wear that other bikes has is adressed this way by specialized. It is a neat feature, but it shouldnt be a need for a proprietary shock.

To use a standard shock you would have to mill out a notch in the shock eye to make it fit the clevis. Your EVO use a 2.5" stroke shock if i remember, and the non-evo use 2.125", so regular enduros need to shorten the stroke on a 2.5"/2.25" shock in addition to milling the shockeye.

I ended up getting my hands on the "evo kit" for my 2010 S-Works.

I saw a few people do that and when I asked specialized they said you have to go through a dealer. short story, no dealer had em

2011 Evo's are 2.125" as well...

This needs to happen. I'd love a Cane Creek coil on the rear!
