--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been riding an 04 Enduro Expert for the last 2 seasons. Love it. However, I originally lusted for an 04 S-Works Enduro but couldn't buy one at the time because it was well beyond my price range. There have been quite a few of these frames popping up these day in MTB classifieds and ebay. I'm considering on upgrading and selling my Expert frame.

Questions for those who've ridden a 04 Enduro and the 04 S-Works Enduro.
1. Is there any noticable performance advantage between the Enduro Brain w/ Trail Tune over a Fox Float with Pro Pedal?
2. I've heard that the S-Works can feel a bit "constipated" in its reactions to sharp bumps especially when you hit one on a smooth trail. True?

Any other information is greatly appreciated. Thanks

T.J.

Anyone know the marketprice (NOT the MSRP) of an S-Works enduro? A friend of mine is interested.

When I was looking at the 04 S-Works Enduro, a used one could be had for $550 off of ebay. There were a couple frames in mint shape that the sellers were asking for $700.
