Say hello to my little friend. New Enduro SX at last...PICS

Rejoice at last.

SX frame
NorthShoreDH cranks with rings
EvolveFR bb
RF Deus Stem
XT discs
XT mech
Deore Shifters
Time Z Control FR pedals
Marzo Z1 Dropoff 2003 fork
Goodridge Hydro hoses
Thomson Seatpost
SelleItalia Flite Transalp

Awesome ride (on the road for starters) I am so happy that the bike feels just like my previous ride in terms of sizing and riding position....its not a 4x only bike... FR/DH (medium) and Trailriding specific . Because of a veeery small dent on an exterior edge of the headtube (no deformation of the tube) the guy gave me a free red hope headset which is next only to ChrisKing.

I think you need a longer seatpost! That one looks WAY to short!


Nice ride man, about damn time you got it!

Thanks Klein and congrats on the bigger brother of my bike...the D9.... Actually the headtube on the SX looks like a miniature version of the externally butted/forged Demo9 headtube...4mmthick!!!

The demo 9 is more like the grandpa or great grandpa of the enduro sx I thought the head tube was the same on the SX as the other enduro bikes? Something that I was a little afraid of.

Nope. The headtube on the SX is taken from the Sworks BMX frame and was beefed up. Same story with the rest of the frame...it just looks like an enduro...different grade of alloy and different gauge throughout. Only the basic shape looks like a normal enduro.
