S-Works Enduro SL Carbon Frame size medium.
Arrived about a week ago - haven't had time to post pics until today.
Bargain from Certini, Plymouth (good service-took one and a half days to arrive by post after ordering by phone).

I was going to get a SantaCruz Heckler frame but this was around 500 notes cheaper!!!!!!!

I'll start buillding soon. It came with a Thomson Elite seatpost (with layback) and XTR front mech. I've also purchased XTR Rear Mech and Shifters.

I am going to weigh each component before adding - as yet I haven't weighed the frame.

I am hoping to get a Race Face Next SL Carbon chainset soon.

Fork, Wheels and Brakes to come from this;

This should build into my ultimate dream MTB!

    Cheers, same as on the Meta 5.5.2.

    How do you find the weight of them?

    Seem great. Went for a 2.5 hour ride on the pitch this morning in the Forest of Dean - they roll brilliantly. This is also helped by the tires and latex tubes.
    Haven't weighed the wheels as yet. I will do so before they go on the Enduro. Feel quite light though.

    Pitch will revert back to Its standard spec. As it's a cycle to work bike it's technically owned by my employer for another 8 or so months.
    I will use it to commute to work and use the Enduro for my weekend rides. :D

    I hope so. I hope the ride will be something special too - I've never had a ride on carbon!

    The bike is looking awesome. Make sure you find out the weight of that frame.
    Did you sell the E150 fork?

    Exactly what I do, except I use my FSR XC to ride to work and Enduro SL for weekends :)

    Thanks.

    No, I got the frame without the forks - couldn't afford it. I'm gonna put the Fox Float 140RLC that I got for the Pitch on this frame.

    I'm considering putting the Fox RP23 on this frame too. It's been awesome on the Pitch and has pro pedal - although the Spesh shock has a "brain".

    Just an update from specializedland!

    From this;

    and this;

    to this...........;

    3657042344_4ac60208e7.jpg

    The Specialized Pitch Comp now almost back to its original spec. It is now my hack bike - to be used for commuting and loaning to mates/family who want to take on the local trails with me. :)

    and this........;

    3657043324_b8f8fc2c5c.jpg

    My ongoing project. :D

    Now weighing in at 22lbs exactly............................without rear mech, chainset, chain, shifters, grips and saddle.

    I hope to keep it as lightweight as possible. Raceface Next SL or XTR chainset and maybe carbon bars and stem. I have no idea what the end weight will be. Looking forward to completing and getting out on it. The other bits will be on sooner rather than later..........I hope!

    My next bike will hopefully be a lightweight full susser.

    Bar width 685mm - with Yeti lock ons & plugs a whisker short of 700mm

    Goodridge gear cable with carbon finish (colour - not made of) as opposed to the other colours of white or silver.

    50mm stem, 25deg rise

    Picture doesn't do the cranks justice as they look the dog's bollx. Pedals are realy neat too - virtually the same width as the spindle, but with a slightly larger platform area than DMRs.

    i think i prefer the pimped pitch tbh. it looks great with the blue frame and white kit.

    would u sell it???

    You mean it did look great! Wheels, brakes and forks being used for new build which should be in a different league in terms of ride. Not really bothered with looks tbh - anyhow beauty is in the eye of the beholder :wink:

    PIitch is still a fabulous ride in standard guise though. I have to say I was really surprised how it handled when I put the original F+R shock back on - much better than i'd imagined.

    Sorry i'm not selling as I am still using it, with no plans to sell in the future. Plenty of Pitches go on the classified forum though - get one and pimp up yourself - It's great fun. :D

    censored :( but fair dos for keeping it. it is a great bike.i vastly prefer the look of the comp to the pro, the blue is magnificent compared to the pro's censored colour :lol:
  • SDK2007SDK2007 Posts: 782
    Any photos of the completed Enduro SL yet?
    What have you got the weight down to?

    Mine weighs approx 27.2lbs

    The bike is as you see in the last photo of it in the thread, although I have fitted the hope stem and carbon bars - so should be approx 1/2 lb lighter than the 22lbs quoted. I will fit all the bits in the next couple of weeks - hopefully.
    Manufacturers weights are;
    chainset and pedals 1kg - 2.2lbs
    shifters, rear mech, cassette, chain, saddle and cable outers 1.2kg - 2.7lbs
    Brings the total to 26.4lbs
    I know it probably doesn't work quite like this and could well work out heavier, so if i can get around your figure I will be pleased :D

    EDIT: Weight of 22lb was taken with XT cassette. I have also added XTR cassette above.
    If the XT is taken from the end weight, technically the bike may come in at under 26lbs! :D

    I totally agree - except for the anodized red suspension rocker!!!!!!! :shock:
    God only knows why Spesh come up with that combination.
