- 8 Year Old Enduro 'v' New Zesty 214? … or similar
1st post. I have a well spec'ed 2002 Enduro FSR, it's XT/HOPE/Easton with Pace RC41 XCAM's. Set up as long travel and shock etc all serviced and working well so in theory a 130mm travel bike.
Only issue is it looks a bit rough and all my mates have shiny new toys and I feel that a new toy will revive my love of MTBing.
So the question split into 2 halves!
Part 1: Is a well spec old bike as good as a new bottom end all mountain machine say Zesty 214 or similar?
Part 2. Riding has flagged as I'm now dad to 2 great kids and need to get back into MTB but am I kidding myself that the old rig is the problem?

If you are at brookscycles.co.uk that's a very nice looking holder page. Like it very much. Take your point re: geometry etc but polished turb is paid for and means savings stay put … forgot to factor that in. Have found Zesty 214 with £400 off though so very tempting.

There is really nowt wrong with your enduro. But then again there was nowt wrong with my 2005 S-Works FSR either but I bought a Blur LT anyway!
Undoubtedly suspension has moved on though, it was the main difference I noticed when moving from an older full sus to a new one EDIT by suspension I really mean shock technology an FSR is still an FSR etcPosted 8 years agoSinglespeed_ShepMember
If its riding that makes you happy, any bike will do.
I very reluctantly had to sell an IndyFab a year or go. I now ride an inbred which is no way near the same league of bike, But i still spend all week looking forward to my next ride and smiling all the way round the trail.Posted 8 years ago
