 The 2010 Enduro Comp is probably the best bang for your buck all rounder bike as it climbs pretty well, but still does a pretty decent job of shredding downhill. The avid elixir brakes are a good match for the bike and the stock fork is actually pretty well tuned. For those who want a do it all bike and aren't riding strictly free ride, this is a bike worth taking a look at.

 All around gravity biased trail bike. Drop the travel and it climbs extremely well. Then turn its' descent loving snout downhill and the geometry gobbles rock gardens, while the low bottom bracket keeps it stable at high speed through turns and chutes.

Speccing X-9 is perfectly adequate given MTB's propensity to shave a derailleur or two off with a rock. Brakes are excellent.

Given the travel and the descent hungry bias you should swap out the big ring for a bash guard. Despite being light for its' ride the weight is one of the few downsides. However you take the downs for the downs if you get my drift.

 Awesome bike. I just bought the 2012 model and i love it. It climbs amazing for a bigger travel bike but can also take the beating of some downhill and freeride. It is a great do it all bike. If you have to climb to get to the trail head for some downhill...this is the perfect bike for you. I love my bike.

 Haven't ridden the new '09's (pictured here), but the fork on the '08's are awesome! Feels super plush and bottomless. Also, at 30 lbs, this bike is great for shredding it up or down. Definitely test ride anything you're looking at buying though.

 a great, do-everything bike. will get you up and let you have fun down. i built this up from the frame, so i would say that the stock parts are...okay. definitely not good enough for the frame. i have the E150 fork found on the 2008 model with 2009 internals, and it is wonderful. the fork truly was fixed in 2008/2009. the adjustable geometry with the lower-able fork and the 2 shock mounts is needed for a bike which will see so much. would i get this bike again? no.
would i buy the frame again and build it up again? i would buy this frame for twice the price and be completely happy.

bottom line: insanely amazingly wonderful bike, held back by "okay" stock components

 Pretty solid XC/AM bike for the price. The standard issue is not to bad but there are a few things your going to need to watch out for. First if you run it on the AM side and use all 6" watch the lower linkage and more importantly the Specialized Brain. Waiting to get mine back from a re-build right now. I might replace that with a Fox shock. The Crank & front ring are pretty cheap to, so that is another down side to the bike. The upside is that it is light and handles pretty well. I personally don't care for the 15mm front hub, It just seems silly not to go for the full 20mm but that's more of a pain when it comes to picking wheel sets. The DT wheels are nice since they bend back on the trail, but after alot of riding you might have laffy taffy looking wheels.

 Great Bike for XC and trail riding. A REAL AM Bike. You can find the flow and uphill even w/o Talas is not a problem.Eskar tires under dry condition excellent. No chance to test it wet.(yet). The rear shock keeps the track. Smooth riding with flow possible. Everything is sound on this bike !

 Does me good on every kind of trail. Rips the trails like a DH bike and goes up the hills like a XC bike. Perfect amount of travel for all mountain riding on rocky, gnarly trails with some jumps and jibs

 Dont bother. The eye of rear shock develops play at the yoke and there is no du bushing to replace the play is in the eye of the shock. Pain in the ass...

Aside from that not bad, but really wtf.

 I love the geometry of this bike! It climbs great. Nice and stable on descents. Quite light. As good on a 35km xc ride as a straight up-and-down steep trail.
