Strengths:    This bike weighs the same as the pro model as my neighbour owns one. Yu are definately getting value for money as it has a really good build on it with a superb adjustable bounce. You can not beat riding next to a show off in the night on a track as it the black paint job gives this the ultimate diamond finish. Overall excellent, no problems with it so far.

Weaknesses:    to much envy from other riders

Bottom Line:   
This bike kicks a## and thold Sez SO!

Strengths:    Great spec for the money. Frame is beautifully made for the price. X9 rear mech. It's easier to clean than my full sussers

Weaknesses:    Only sold in UK Halfords/Bikehut stores - deserves better!
Saddle a bit thin for my 44 year old fat ass :-)

Bottom Line:   
I bought this as it was very cheap for a bike of this spec and was too good to pass over. Cost me £300 for a slightly (mostly road) used pre-owned model. Going UK price was £600 new.(newer version has air fork but lower spec gearing).
Always puts a smile on my face as it's so damn light compred to my Giant. Very nice spec for the money and i'd recommend it to anyone as a great 1st hardtail to start off your biking love affair

Impressions on this 2005 Specialized Enduro Comp?

I'm in the market for a all mountain FS bike. I'm new to suspension, ride my bike daily, but don't have a large budget (family, time constraints, etc). I'm about 5"8" and 210 lbs. I realize the xl frame may be too large but I do have fairly long arms, at least I find that with shirts. I'd love t ... Read More »

I'm new to mountain biking but live in a great area for trail riding straight from my door. I'm not going to be racing or doing jumps/tricks etc. I can get a deal tax free deal at work which significantly reduces the price of a bike. I want to get the most advanced I can afford so as not to have to ... Read More »

Replace Trek 9.6 superbly with Specialized stump jumper comp?

Hello I am relatively new to biking (last 6 months or so). I originally decided on a Trek 9.6 carbon Superfly which I purchased. However, assuming I can get a decent price for this through re-sale what would you guys think if I was to replace it with a specialised stump jumper comp. I won't go i ... Read More »
