    Specialized Enduro sl VS Cannondale rize 4

    Dear friends,

    Im a 1.93cm /92kg (Guess 6.33 / 204 lbs) biker. Since my canondale Prophet 2 got stolen, I'm now looking for a new all mountain bike (i do a bit of everything).

    I selected the 08 specialized enduro sl expert and the canondale rize 4 and I would really appreciate your suggestion on which one to buy. I love the XL frame of the enduro, aggressive and robust but I appreciate the apparent evolution of the new rize frame....

    Beyond price gap considerations, What shall I do?

    Tx a lot guys

    Mr Fox

    Welcome to bikeforums. You should try posting this over in the mountain bike sub-forum, as you probably won't get the info you want here.

    I'd probably look at the Rize 4, no propriatory parts where it matters(Suspension.)

    Depending on your deifnition of "do everything" I might look at the stumpjumper instead of the enduro. More travel than a wheenie XC racer, but still efficient and climbable. But maybe you don't do a ton of climbing and like to take your bike to the lifts now and then, in which case, forget everything I just said.

    I do know a couple of people who are very happy with their enduros (both 2007 models I beleive).

    I have tried today a Rize 4. Whilst it seems great more XC situations, i did not like it at all in downhill environment. Definitely too light. I hope I am wrong and it is just a matter of getting used to it...

    I'd probably choose the canondale rize 4. It fits for me at least
