Anyone had any experience with the new specialized enduro? 2017?

Hey guys,
After my sunday ride, I clean my bike and then was worried about a bearing near the bottom bracket.
Is it normal?
Or should I go to my bike shop ?

Doesn't look normal to me. Have a pro take a look so nothing gets broken.

It looks the same as mine and I know because I had the exact same question. Of course feel free to check it.

2017 Enduro 29 Comp. Had it for just over a month now. Also got a pair of 27.5+ wheels so I can do some experimenting come spring. So far, love it.

I intend on buying either the elite or the pro enduro, tell me about it, how does it ride? Any complaints? Handling? Could you downhill on one?
Cheers bud

Its phenomenal, because of the timing of the arrival I haven't taken it to a bike park. I rarely ride bike park anyways because of proximity, mostly just steep, natural trails here in Colorado. Initial impression, it would take anything you throw at it. I've hit 5ft drops and it soaks them up with ease, also spent a weekend in Moab and it was exceptional.

I've spent the past year on a short travel 29, so the 29er wasn't an adjustment for me. It's just plain fast, I've been setting KOM/PR on my regular descents and feel much more in control. I feel I can attack a descent and have a ton of confidence going into it. It also hides my poor line choices, this weekend I got off line going into a rock garden and tensed up, but barely even noticed my poor line choice. I need to learn to trust the bike to handle anything I put in front of it and stay more relaxed.

Also, I haven't spent much time on plus tires, but I look forward to trying out some 27.5x2.8 tires in the spring. I already grabbed a used 27.5+ boost wheelset from a friend. I generally like experimenting and the two wheelsize option was appealing.

Build wise, the large came with a 60mm stem, which I swapped to a 40mm Chromag, much better. I also disliked the grips and swapped them for some Ergon AM grips. Otherwise I don't see the need to make any changes, its a solid build kit. The carbon models would be awesome, and my other bike (Camber Carbon 29) has the SWAT tube and I legitimately love it.

It makes me want to ride more than I ever have. So that in and of itself is a positive for me. I've also never owned a longer travel bike, I've ridden them before and had a DH bike briefly but didn't go to the parks enough to warrant owning one.

Its exciting to ride, I find myself looking for drops and gaps and getting down with a smile. And with the quality and similarity of bikes nowadays, where they have all gravitated to the mean and we are left to nitpick minute differences that's all I can ask for. It makes me want to ride non-stop and find new lines and new trails. So I'm happy with it, and that the best review I can give a bike.
