Nice find! However, the Enduro was a little more exciting when the first pics came out since it was a complete re-design. This makes it apparent that I'll be sticking with my '04, as trading for an extra 20mm doesn't seem worth it.

Well Done!!!

Cool, thanks for sharing that.

I looked all over this morning for some pics. Now I'm staring at them trying to justify buying another frame.

I agree that the Enduro was an exciting find since it was a total redesign, but I was much more interested in the new Stumpy stuff since I just bought one a few months ago. My intent was to find out what was new on the 05's and compare to the 04's.

I spoke to a little birdie today...

'05 info was the subject...of course!

Enduro Models:

The base Enduro and Enduro Comp still use a '04 style frame.

The Expert (Fox 36 R Talas100-150 with a 5th Element shock, Avid Juicy 7 8"/6" brakes) is blue

The Pro (Fox 36 RC2 with the same 5th Elemnet, XT 8"/6" hydro brakes) is Charcoal gray.

The SX has 4.2" rear trave and is red/black (Fox 36 R Talas100-150 w/20mm thru axle and a 5th Element shock, Hayes HFX Mag 6" brakes).

The SX Trail has 6" rear travel and is brown/black (Marzocchi 66R single crown w/20mm thru axle and 5th Element Coil shock, Hayes HFX-9 hydro disc with 8" rotors)

Stumpjumper Models:

The Stumpjumper Pro 120 Disc (Manitou Minute 1 and Fox Setune adjustable ProPedal shock, XT Hydro brakes) is silver.

The Stumpjumper Expert 120 Disc (Fox Talas RL and Fox Setune adjustable ProPedal shock, Avid Juicy 7 disc brakes) is black.

The Expert Disc is a bit darker red and uses full XT hydro brakes. It has a Fox F100RL fork.

Whew...I'm on info overload! :)

little more each day...

nice find on the pictures. too bad its not english. you can make out some of the specs though. the fsr xc pro has a triad rear shock. it seems that all of the fsr bikes are getting upgraded in some way. 2005 looks like it's gunna be a nice year for the big S.
