    this is not likely to go well…

    P.S. It’s not ENDURO if it’s not 650b

    πŸ˜€ legend. To be honest, it was prompted by the enduro thread. But other, main reasons are that I’m stuck on a long, boring train journey and I’m hoping to do the Mega next year. Enduro seemed the easiest way to describe it. Looking for ideas / inspiration….

    I’ve been riding Enduro for 30 years since MTBS were made up by marketing companies to con us out of our hard-earned. πŸ˜€

    ‘Bike that can be ridden up, along, and down, what like you’ve always done’ is a bit long winded IMO for the marketing department no?

    Well, my enduro bike is a surly crosscheck. It may be a 650b full susser for other folks, but i won’t be getting upset about it. πŸ˜€

    You have been swayed boy!

    ?? You’ve lost me. My point to you is why get upset over what others choose to buy? Enduro happens to be a handy tag for a certain type of riding/bike. You don’t have to buy one, as i have chosen not to. Your the one who started a thread to moan about it on here. Seems bizarre you care so much about other folks buying choices.

    All i’ve tried to point out to you is the bike industry needs to re invent certain things now and again to get more people into the sport or refine bikes for certain types of riding. likewise if we all just kept the bikes we’ve been riding for years maybe the knock on effect would be no advertising revenue, no magazines, no forums.

    Theres no need to look down your nose at the people that have been ‘sucked in’ to the 650b/enduro hype, so what? When you bought your first MTB the cross guys/roadies probably thought the same about you!

    Bikes for the Mega range from hardtails with DH tyres, right through all wheel sizes and travel up to WC spec DH bikes with 8″-10″ travel.

    Don’t think it’s been rigid raided yet if you fancy being niche πŸ™‚

    EDIT
    Northwind, have you cart wheeled that bike, saddle angle looks a tad off πŸ™‚

    Wow…the geometry on that bike Northwind all looks…well, just wrong! πŸ˜•

    Only had one dodgey encounter with the highlands this year. Hopefully rigid raid Glencoe again on disc brakes this time if MacAvalanche happens next year πŸ™‚ or take it serious and bring something with springs.

    Jeez. I don’t know why I expected any less…. Never mind, off the train now.

    No Macca next year πŸ™ Probably something else even stupider instead. Still waiting to hear if the Endurance is going ahead

    Mega on the Mega

    1200m climb up Grouse Mountain, North Vancouver, fast fireroad descent then dropping into some new school North Shore DH on Fromme and finishing with a section of techgnar XC. It doesn’t get much more ‘enduro’ than that πŸ™„

    The last bike I raced Enduro on, mods later on saw new Tech M4’s and a Marz 55 replacing the dying Marz AM SL Air.
    EX721’s with Maxxis Minnion 2.5″ was the main adaption along with a Hope Ti6 up front due to dislocating the tip of my braking finger and needing a lot of help with the front brake… Droped it into Race 2 despite the injury and finished top half which I was pleased about considering.

    For UK Enduro dropped back to 2.35 SP Minions.
    Bike weight was gravity suited.

    Current (if untested) version

    Rides better up and down than the Heckler, would be happy to throw it at the Mega and any UK/euro enduro races. Main changes from the heckler would be everything! Carbon frame, Lighter wheels, Wider (lighter) bars, 2×10 now sporting an e-13 2x device, Lev replaces the I900 and the whole thing comes in around 28-29lb depending on what I do with it.

Still want / need / have to changes tyres to high rollers, stick on my saint brakes, convert rear hub to bolt-thru and eventually new pedals n chainguide….
