Why are you comparing the S-Works Enduro ($4880) to the RM ETSX 70 ($3299). The comparison to the ETSX 70 would be the Enduro Pro ($3040).Cynan said:Hey all,
I am thinking of purchasing a new FS bike and after riding several different models and makes I had almost decided on the Rocky Mountain ETS range. However I am now considering the Specialized S-Works Enduro (2004 model as I do not like the 2005 one - yes I can be very vain).
Has anyone ridden either or both of these models and could give me the benefit of their opinions? I am going to an LBS this weekend to ride an Enduro which will hopefully help me decide come the outcome of this thread.
I've spent some time on the Enduro and it's a great handling bike. I have not tried the ETSX. I'm a Horst link fan and the Enduro uses that type of suspension. I know quite a few riders that own Enduros and they're all very happy with the bikes. The lifetime warranty doesn't hurt.
I've heard good things about the ETSX, but can't give any opinion based on actually using the bike.
I guess I wasn't much help.
