    Be nice to have something like that for a townie/trail cruiser. Always have my eye on 1 or 2 but i just cant pull the trigger. Looking at an old fillet brazed mt tam ad now that ive saved for a year. Its not unrealistically priced but it is for me

    Swank rig and the head tube mod is a must from what I hear these days. Gone are the days of practice and learning to ride better.

    I finally rode the new Enduro today, my sis got a S3. With my neighbor being one of the guys who helped engineer it, I should have gotten on it hyper early, but didn't till just now cuz covid. So good, I need one. F, I can't afford shit right now.

    Rode it back to back with a 2019 stumpy ST in need of a minor tune, and the Enduro pedaled better. Enduro pedals better than my 2021 Fuse 27+. Made my 2020 Commencal Clash seem like a fridge and I'd say the Enduro pedals as well or slightly better than my Ripmo AF did.

    Didn't do much downhill, but got the feels, and it's so burly yet so nimble. Definitely the sizing, but I suspect the S4 would feel nimble too. I want sooo bad

    Yeah, but how was the carbon weld?

    Last week it was established that the Ripmo is the greatest bike ever because of Dave Weagle and the Enduro is essentially unridable because of Horst Leitner.

    And endorsing a Specialized on TGR is almost the same as endorsing a child molester

    I did not like my Ripmo AF that much. Had it for a month before selling. Felt too middle of the road for me, nothing felt inspiring. Got the Clash right after, and although a porker, it was way more fun on even mellow descents.

    I love the Enduro, will be buying as soon as I can figure out how to afford

    I use to avoid Specialized. For years I did. But I started realizing I love how all their bikes feel, personal preference.

    I still donít like some of the shit they do. Like my 2021 Fuse 27+ comes with a slightly worse frame, even at $1500. I didnít even realize til after I brought it home. My fault, but still some cheapout bullshit. They made a separate frame for their slightly cheaper, but still burly, hardtail? At $1500, I want the better frame. Maybe Iím just used to Commencal having the same frame across price points, but this really ticked me off on buying another Specialized.

    Until I tried the Enduro yesterday.

    With a name like Leitner you'd think that system would rip up the hill at 8m/second

    Damn, not much wrong with that Ranger. I've got a green one on the way (hopefully in the next two weeks) that I'm building up similarly, with a SID Ultimate up front and Nobl TR33 wheels.

    They were sold out of the Ultimate when I ordered but adjusted the price for the select. Ended up at 27.5#, thought it would be lighter. I think tires are about the only place I could really shave weight and I have a Barzo/Mezcal set to try so maybe that'll get it under 27

    Echoing this.
    Had a Ripmo, we disagreed on how to get down the hill. Broke a rim (Ibis crabon) warrantied and sold it for about the same cost.
    Purchased a used '19 Spesh Enduro as an "interim bike", and bought some new skis and my years pass with the difference in cost.

    Still have the Enduro, and it still rips. Just threw a deposit down on the '22 EVO in cast battleship. She's purty.
    Their mid range products have a great price point, and the bikes ride fantastic.

    My shorts are tight, and that's all that matters.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    I didn’t think the Ripmo was that fast or that fun. It kinda skirted the line, and I don’t gel with that. I never timed it, but the feels.

    Good bike, put together well and good price, just not for me.

    Finally have a few rides in with the Izzo Pro Race and shorts are still tight. Agility and pedal response is incredible; so happy to be back on a 29er.

    Built up a new full-Revved Trail Pistol a few weeks ago, this is the perfect trail bike for my riding. I've already taken it on a 35-mile XC ride at Buffalo Creek, and hit some of the rowdiest stuff on the Front Range (no, I'm not talking about Heil Ranch)... it does it all.

    Thread drift…the redesigned conti trail king 2.4 got decent reviews but I never tried it (maybe I was too scarred from the suckage of the previous version). Thoughts on it as a front tire for my hei hei CR? The protection version is 945 g per mfger.
