Strengths:    Very strong and light frame, comes with good mount of Fox shocks front and rear, builds confidence on steep descents and climbs great. The design and look of the frame is just amazing. Pure high-tech engineering.

Weaknesses:    The original set-up was just lame. Got everything replaced for good parts, from headset to wheels and QRs. Not so sure about the FSR link. Had some issues at first but I'm still getting used to it, I used to be single-pivot guy, but it seems just fine, though.

Bottom Line:   
Bought the bike at a sale offer, it is an 05 model, but I got brand new. The frame is just beautiful, and in my opinion, the best looking Specialized frame EVER. Since I'm a singletrack freak, so I built it to last, but built it to be fast too. It's light, about 27,7lbs/12,6kg. The Nevegals do most of the job uphill, they tractor like crazy, and have a stunning grip downhill. The geometry served me well, it has a very confortable position. The suspensions work fine, they are very plush and still can hold some jumps. Just perfect for descents, can do it seated most of the times, but you have to put your weight forward when climbing steep trails, here's where I miss travel adjustment. With the upgrade, it just turned out to be a perfect do-it-all/all-day trail bike. No excuses, it handles pretty much everything and get the job done.

Strengths:    Very smooth for all mountain terrain. Good component mix for the price.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Bought it new and went to Moab, last ride I rode my S-Works and ruined the Marzocchi fork (beat it to pieces). Went down Porcupine Rim was like cruising in a Caddie. The bike does a great job for what it was designed for. I even raced in on a rough course that had a lot of baby heads and it allowed me to win.

Strengths:    Frame geometry is spot on for aggressive trail riding. The tires have been great for the riding I do. The suspension works great though I do bottom out the rear from time to time. I can't believe there are so many comments on the seatpost and clamp, does that really affect how it rides, no I have had zero problems with mine.

Weaknesses:    I have had problems with the rear spokes breaking but the rim has stayed true.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is excellent for the riding it was designed for. Yeah it does not climb great but it will get you there and the way down is well worth the extra effort. To all the people who wrote negative reviews maybe you should get a bike more specific for jumping or climbing if thats what your into. This bike is a great all-mountain performer.

Strengths:    Frame is solid, geometry well balanced, great fit for me I feel very comfortable on this frame. It handles well, just lean with the bike. Does well at abosrbing rock hits and rolls over obstacles well.

Weaknesses:    Some of the components seem a bit lower on quality. Wheels are low end. You lsoe alot of the plushness of the travel if you set the rear shock up properly, trade-off I guess. Seat post clamp was difficult to use with gloves on. Not a strong climber

Bottom Line:   
It's a good bike, especially for your first FS bike. Handles well, very comfortable and can keep you from getting tired. Does not climb well but it gets there, wheels are low end, busted my rear wheel and blew the seals on the shock. Avid Juicy 5 need too much adjusting. After 15 months on this rig I'm ready for a custom frame.

Strengths:    The frame is great great welds holds my 250lb just fine. Fox floats forks are good.

Weaknesses:    The rear shock jus has to go as they did for this year. had to void the warrenty to upgrade the shock because its a special order from specialized through fox measuring 7.625 X 2.0 the seat and seatpost also a must go jus to weak. the rear wheel is good but i break spokes alot.

Bottom Line:   
The bike was good for '05. but as we have seen specialized knew the problems with the model and pimped out the '06 version. So it was a win lose bike.

Strengths:    Great all mountain bike. I like the tires, plenty of grip. Fork is best part of the bike.

Weaknesses:    This bike has givin me so many problems. As a high school kid i dont have money to be thrown around. However in my short time of having the bike the rear shock went out (hitech took care of it, these guys rock!), I broke the fork, chain, and have problems with the seat post clamp all the time. I have to threadlock the screw so it doesnt back out. I never feel totally supported by the rear shock. It always feels on the verge of bottom out even after adjustment. Brakes have good braking power but the self adjust thing on the avids suck. Sometimes they'll automatically retract to the rotor causing a lot of rub. Stock pedals are kind of lame.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike with view of having a solid all mountain bike that I can cross country for miles and then bang around with my friends. For the most part thats what it is. Though not much in either direction. It seems heavy on the trail(good for getting in shape) and then it seems like theres not enough bike when it comes to jumping and drops. Im way disappointed w/ as many problems as ive had w/ it. All together though it is a great bike and im happy to own it.
3 for the problems 4 for over all

Submitted by matt a Weekend Warrior from desert, california, usa

Date Reviewed: April 1, 2006

Strengths:    frame is beautiful, linkage that can change geometry (though not much), front 8 inch rotor, fairly light,

Weaknesses:    suspension front and back are not good, tires are not really great, the handlebar has to be replaced immediately

Bottom Line:   
the fork really sucks, it comes with a Fox Float RL, the only adjustment is rebound which only works a couple clicks, the fork is way too soft, but if your stickly XC this might be a great fork; the stock bars are ridiculous, 24 inches!!, through those out when i got home and put on a 27 inch azonic DH, with a 60 mm freeride stem, 10 deg rise; the freaking shock tits up today, what fox refers to as 'stuck down', i'll send it in but who knows how long that will take, can i even find somehting else to replace it?; the rear juicy five caliper doesn't work well, it has some issue with where the pads contact the rotor, i've got it jury rigged but i need to call avid; when you see the bike, yeah it's pretty, the frame is beautiful, but because i have to buy all this sheet : fork, shock, brakes, handlebar...you might as well just buy the frame and build yourself

Because of all this junk within just three months, i can only give this thing 3 chilis, for what i paid not a good deal, my weyless xp was a way better deal

Submitted by CJ a Downhiller from Allentown, PA, USA

Date Reviewed: March 23, 2006

Strengths:    The bike is great on both rock gardens and moderate drops. Tough frame and linkages. Decent shocks

Weaknesses:    So far the following have been destroyed. Rear derailer, chain, multiple rear spokes, freewheel body, and now the seat post. Note none of these were from direct impacts! I had to change out the rear hub and relace the wheel. The seat post sucks! The connection between the post and the head just separated on me! It looks like it is glued.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is great but the wheel set is poorly laced and cheap hubs are used. The seatpost is definitely a hazard and should be recalled! Regardless, the bike geometry, shocks, and brakes are still pretty wicked.

Strengths:    For this price you get FSR, 5" Travel, Fox front and back, brakes that stop on a dime, great geometry, ~32lbs and awesome stock tires and rims. Who could resist?

Weaknesses:    The SEAT!! Swap out your seat as soon as you get this bike or your gooch will definitely be hurting after a long, rough ride. So so hubs and shifters. Paint rubs off the cranks easily, but who needs a good looking bike that you don't ride? Fox TALAS would be nice for those tough climbs, but if you truly need it, go for a higher model.

Bottom Line:   
This bike kicks butt and is durable as hell. You won't be winning any XC races or hucking off 5' drops, but that's not what this bike is designed to do. This bike is for All Mountain use, jack-of-all trades, master at none. If you're looking for a bike for "Aggressive XC", riding quickly through rough, jagged rocks and <3' drops, then this is the bike for you. As with all FS bikes, make sure you dial in your suspension or you'll be dealing with a bumpy ride or end up flying over the handlebars.

Bottom Line:   
I Bought this bike in hopes of a more freeride type bike. Coming off of my stumpy. fsr comp ,it wasn't as much of a difference as I had hoped. I have actually had more parts (wheel spokes,seatpost,chain,brakes -which Avid replaced) brake or fail than my stumpy. I'm still willing to check out specialized , mabey a more all mountain / freeride '06 enduro sx trail model. This was my first brand new mt. bike and for my $2200 ,was a little dissapointed in performance.

Date Reviewed: January 22, 2006

Strengths:    4 Bar linkage,relaxed geometry, good standover,good components including great tires, great price on closeout,looks cool!

Weaknesses:    bars are too narrow-64cm, stem is a little short at 85mm for size L, cable rout a little weird that goes by bottom bracket, rear hub is cheap Shimano, shifters are cheap. Handles well but the steering is a little whippy with short stem and narrow bars

Bottom Line:   
I was looking for a 5" travel bike and found this at 1/2 price.I'm happy with the bike! Its a lot of fun to ride.Handles great but the front end is too light for good climbing and you go side-to-side a lot. Hopefully this will change with longer bars and stem.
I've heard it takes a bit to set up longer travel bikes and I'm finding this is the case with the Enduro.Oh yeah the tires are great and although they say 2.2 they are more like 2.5 .Much more stable than XC bikes I had before.

This bike is a great deal for me and awesome to ride in the rocky Northeast

Date Reviewed: December 31, 2005

Strengths:    First of all, the possibility to switch the bb height and the headtube angle is great. You can, by just flipping the link, get a all-mountain ride or a light freeride bike. The kit that the bike come with is great, except for the 2003 model that came with a Psylo Xc fork that was bottoming out on every hit and i'm 120lbs... Finally, the Specialized product warranty worth the price. The bike is 30 lbs...And 36 Lbs mounted with a Dh kit...

Weaknesses:    Well, I was very dissapointed with the 2003 version. A rock shox fork bottoming out, Deore shifters that were always in the way of trees(I've broken it twice, recommand shifter like Sram hidden below the handlebar) and the rims that were not stiff at all(Mavic x223).

Bottom Line:   
Finally the frame got a crack on the shock linkage and I get it remplaced by Specialized for a 2005 version that is much stiffer that the 2003 version. But I don't recommand this bike for Fr ou DH for the fact that the bike isn't stiff enought and the headtube can't take more than a 130mm travel single crown fork(I'm running a 66RC 170mm fork for a year in DH courses and nothing happened but it's not a chance to take with this bike). Finally, the Fox Float Shock is solid enought to take big hits but be sure that the air pressure isn't too high, you might bust valving inside or simply crack your frame as I did...

So, GREAT product for AM or Light FR but, don't take the chance to push it over this limit or be ready to take time at the shop and money from your pocket...
