More on the Enduro EVO

The Enduro EVO arrived from Cali on Friday.  I put it together and got to looking forward to ripping it up this weekend.  Man this thing shreds!  Easily the most "all around" bike I've ridden.  It's got 170mm of travel in the front, with 160mm in the rear.  It's all coil sprung (which is seriously underrated on All Mountain Bikes.  The plushness of coil springs is amazing.  They might not be the most efficient way to get up the mountain, but man, they definitely don't disappoint when things get rocky and gnarly. 

The way this thing pedals is simply mind boggling.  For a bike with such long legs, it is just as efficient as my 5 inch trail bike.  Even out of the saddle there is very little pedal bob, and the 160mm of travel must hide somewhere because it feels an awful lot like my Stumpjumper FSR.  All said, I'm a very happy dude.  I can't say enough about how well Specialized does mountain bikes.  They're just the total package.  Most companies put together a good frame, but leave a lot to be desired with components.  Specialized really makes the not only a good frame, but a real solid complete bike.  Props to Specialized!!!
