Those wheels are now on eBay! They're nice, but using them would mean a new hub and spokes. I won a hub on eBay that I'll have to sell as I picked up cheap set of wheels this morning. Bolt through front hub, deore rear hub and mavic en321 rims. Busy busy!

New wheels landed and old wheels sold. Picked up a good deal on ebay on the new wheels, so really pleased with them.

Got most of the bike together now, just need to tweak a few bits so it's rideable.

Will hopefully get some pictures up tomorrow :)

Rode this to work and back yesterday. Such a change from the Giant! The two bikes couldn't be any more different. Still, quite like the Enduro. Lots of travel and it has quite a good riding position. May take it off-road on Sunday and see what its like dragging it up some hills (surely coming back down again will be worth it!) :)

Very nice!!

I own the '05 S-Works model and got 6.8" travel with a 8.75x2.75 shock. I put a 5th Element coil shock from a VP Free –Fox works too.
