 This is a fantastic all around bike. I have the 2007 with the e150 front fork. This bike absolutely kicked ass at Mammoth Mtn, and is a perfect bike for an aggressive single track rider who likes to push the limits. I have not had ANY issues with this bike since I bought it in 2009. Currently, I have custom Roval traverse wheels/hubs, 2.4" wide Kenda Telonix tires, Answer (wider) bars, fizik saddle, Raceface bash guard, blackspire chain guide, crankbros eggbeater pedals.

 I have this frame but all my own components. Amazing bike. Spot on geometry for riding and climbing the shore. I can rail the DH and still climb like a racer. Feels almost as fast as my DH bike on the way down. Front derailler is incredible, better than any other I have owned becaused it is mounted on the chain stay and therefore works all the time.

 absolutly love it! i have the 2008 (with the triples) so not exactly the same as the one in the photo but not far off as the components on the most part are the same.
i have however found one problem, and its not the obvious one! the handle bars are useless! no less then that! i have had the bike now for roughly 4 months, and already they are creaking as if they are going to snap! (annoyingly i have some EA70s on my old bike but standard size, but thats no help to you)
the suspension is nice and plush and am particularly impressed with the rear shock, due to the 4 (5 unofficially) settings changing it from soft to firm, the 5th being putting the rebound past the slowest setting and compression on 4, locking out the rear
The drive train is lovly, and tempted to say perfect. ive come from an all XT set up to X9/X0 and the difference is amazing, really have been impressed
brakes are fairly limpwristed aswell though this is to be expected from a bike with such a low weight

 I have the 2010 version. It is Stealth Black with Spesh Lo Pro Mag pedals in White. It also has a RS Lyrik Solo Air tapered Fork. It is f'ing awesome, super smooth and can really go anywhere.

 This is a very light mountain bike with six inches of travel. Comes with the best brakes money can but avid Elixir carbon and brilliant forks. Yet it as strong rims made by Dt Swiss.

 I love the Enduro, might not pedal up as fast as a road bike or a XC, but you can pedal up with no issues.. Once you get to the TOP, it's a mighty downhill, the Enduro shreds!!!

 Have over a hundred days this year and with standard maintenance it has been a dream to ride. Has not had any major mechanicals that have left me stranded or unable to deal with and continue to ride like a rock star.

 I have a 2003 and really like it. I wish there were more shops that were familiar with it though. Not sure which components are compatible is frustrating.

Specialized Enduro SL Expert (MSRP $3900) — THE ENDURO┬« SL'S welterweight chassis, pedaling efficiency and six inches of travel let you climb without crying and rail in the technical terrain. If you want to ride the whole mountain and really own it, the Enduro SL is your best bike.

The Fox 32 Talas RL fork gets the job done with 150, 130 and 110mm of proven adjustable travel with compression/rebound adjust for efficient climbing and descending.

Custom Avid Elixir R Carbon SL brakes feature full hydraulic calipers, organic pads for enhanced modulation and a big 203 mm rotor in front and 185mm in back for awesome control in fast and steep situations. Elixir R SL levers feature tool-free reach adjustment for enhanced comfort and control.

Our custom DT Swiss wheels don't cut corners when it comes to quality: sealed cartridge bearings, a DT Swiss rear hub with star ratchet and alloy freehub and DT Swiss Competition stainless spokes with alloy nipples. Up front is a Specialized Hi-Lo thru-axle front hub with variable sized flanges for perfect tension and a 25mm axle for percicion steering.

S-Works Eskar 26 x 2.3" tires feature large volume casing and dual-compound tread for awesome traction. 2Bliss technology enhances control and durability without adding weight.

Specialized AFR Shock provides 150mm of air-sprung travel. Damping curve and spring rate perfectly match the telemetry of the suspension, ensuring optimal bump force management and maximum control.

Geo based on Low BB setting.
