Where did you hear about Fox 36 fork on the 09 SL? I wonder if they will swap out my shoty 08 e150 for free...TLL said:I can't think of a better fork to put on the Enduro than a Fox 36. Marz, no way.
FWIW, all 09 Enduros (with the exception of the S-Works model) will come with Fox forks.
DHX over RP23 - do you now how well the bike pedal with the coil?nickgto said:A friend of mine changed the rear shock of his Enduro SL to a DHX 5.0 coil and he was very happy with it's performance over the stock shock. He is also contemplating in replacing the fork with a Fox Van RC2.
I think either a 36 TALAS RC2 / DHX 5 air or 36 Van RC2 / DHX 5 titanium coil would be the best fork / shock combo for the Enduro SL.
He preferred the way it pedaled over the stock rear shock. He did dial in the pro-pedal 2/3rd's i think from fully open. I never really bothered to try his bike myself cuz he is a skinny 140 lbs dude while I'm a fat 210 lbs clyde.LncNuvue said:DHX over RP23 - do you now how well the bike pedal with the coil?
Mine is an 07 upgraded to 08 internals. Funny how the e150 is promoted as such a great piece of equipment then dropped after two years. Just validates all of the flaws with the design. I guess marketing can only get you so far.MPauB1386 said:Its in the 2009 spec catalogue. All Sl are losing the spec. fork.
It seems very strange and If I bought one in with the spec fork in 08 I dont really know how I would feel about that.
Please note that I did not say Enduros were coming with 36's in 09. They are coming with a 150mm Fox 32mm with 15mm QR.LncNuvue said:Where did you hear about Fox 36 fork on the 09 SL? I wonder if they will swap out my shoty 08 e150 for free...
Not talking about the travel, I'm talking about the riders position on the bike. The bike already has a steep seat tube with the e150. Drop the front end 25mm with the Fox 150and it's going to be very steep putting the rider even more over the handle bars. One big gripe about my Enduro SL was that the cockpit doesn't feel relaxed which makes it more XC biased. Luckily new enduro buyers will have the option to have risers under the stem, that may help. :thumbsup:tomsmoto said:you guys think a 150mm travel bike is too xc? what the hell kind of xc trails do you ride? :lol:
Very glade to hear it. I would never diss anything anyone rides. Espically such a good looking bike made by a great company. I rented an 08 enduro and loved it.SDK^ said:Very happy I got the 08 with an E150
