    Help! Thoughts on 2001 Specialized Enduro Pro

    I'm riding mostly moderate xc/trail on weekends and a deal for a used 2001 Specialized Enduro Pro has come to my attention w/ the following components. Would say for my riding style and price this is a good deal? I was actually looking into the Stumpy but this seems like a hard deal to pass up. I've heard that the stumpy is better than an enduro for moderate xc/trails. Thoughts?

    2001 Specialized Enduro Pro - $700
    -Fork: ROCK SHOX Psylo 4.8" travel
    -Shock: FOX FloatRC 4" travel
    -Wheels: Mavic X317 Disc with custom black spokes
    -Hubs: Specialized Stout
    -Brakes: Front and Rear Hayes Hydraulic Disc brakes (Hayes 6" rotors)
    -Frame: Specialized Enduro Pro FSR '01, size M, lightweight
    -Cranks: Specialized Strong Arm II
    -Derailleur(front): Shimano XT
    -Derailleur(rear): Shimano XTR
    -27 Speed

    custom black spokes is quite the selling point but i would opt for the stumpy. if you really want to save som cash, look for a used stumpy hardtail. Hardtail technology doesnt change as rapidly as full squish so you know. you could get a cheap 01 and put some nicer components on it or something. happy trails!

    Ain't that the truth! Or, to put it another way, as suspension designs continue to evolve and improve, hardtails remain as archaic and outdated as some peoples' thinking.

    Mike09, I owned a 98 FSR Pro (essentially the first generation Enduro), got many years of use and pleasure out of it, and it still remains one of my favorite tralbikes ever. If it's comfortable and suits you, I say go for it.

    I already owned a hardtail so I'm moving onto a full suspension. My main concern is when it comes to climbing, would the enduro and stumpy be about the same? Is the enduro typically heavier since it's all mountain?
