As far as I can see Spec only covers workmanship and not accidents.

Update, Carbon repair guy says it's just a scratch Big Grin


That’s good news! But yeah, maybe a stronger rock guard is a good investment.

Might just sell it and get a Raaw JIB, good beefy frame with a long shock stroke.

Stumpies are for normal size people Smile

How do you like the bike so far ? I haven't heard any reviews on the LTD yet. My bike is still somewhere in a plane / truck, can't wait lol

Really happy with it, really inspires confidence- the coil (super deluxe select plus) works well - I'm unsure of the rationale for the switch other than some comment that air is "more reliable & robust". I've not tried the altering the head angle, bike shop lost the flipchip, but specialized has sourced one, so when it comes, I'll have a go.
I've not worked out how to post a photo, but its a great looking bike - enjoy!

I have Evo Ltd 2021
It came with Zeb Select+ fork and Ultimate Select+ shock.

I changed the fork to Fox 36 Factory, because Zeb is too heavy for my rides, don't need such a bulky fork. And I had a fork ready as a spare part. Sold the Zeb.

The bike is now more poppy and the front end is easier to lift.

Even the rear shock is working fine, I have ordered Fox Float X Performance Elite.

Did you grab another CC Link or are you back on the stock link with the x2?

Still on the CC link. Cant sell an Orange CC link for love or money, lol!

I'm "watching" if but can't bring myself to put the orange on my bike. lol

I have Fox 36 Factory 170 on my Evo Ltd. Works fine and you don’t notice much difference.

Front medium and rear high. Just measure bottom bracket height, it's 341 mm, bike size is S3

What are peoples thoughts on bar height. My s4 came with a ton of spacers under the headset. Felt good but wonder about lowering the front a bit. I already have a lower rise bar, should have measured twice haha.

I find it’s best to go on back-to-back rides with the spacers stacked at each extreme (low / high) to really get a feel for how it changes your body positioning, tire weighting, etc. That way you avoid theoreticals and placebo. Once you feel out both heights, fine tune back to the middle.

Just keep in mind, raising the stem shortens the reach and vice versa. Also, with a really slack head angle and short stem, you can’t raise it super high or you’ll move the bars behind the steering axis and get some off handling characteristics. So ideally you’d want something like a 50mm stem for the high stack and a 40mm stem for the low stack. Not totally necessary to just feel out the bar height though.

Sounds good. Likely in the ball park but some trail and error sounds like the way to go. Thanks.

I have it posted to Pinkbike buy/sell, but I’ve got an s5 frame I’m looking to trade for an s4. Bought it too big. Hoping someone bought too small.

Specialized did for 2022 models. I'd have to think it works better, but I haven't had a chance to ride one yet.

I changed to Performance Elite and tune id is D94Q. Just rode a test ride with it, but not sure which is better Rockshox Super Deluxe or Fox Float X
