Seb's being humble about taking the 4 Kings win this past weekend, but he's not at all humble about how much he's been enjoying the new S-Works Demo.

Doesn't look like they're making Enduros in XL for 2013. I guess tall people don't qualify for the dream.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Oh, my.

With the improved pedaling performance was any bump gobbling, chatter smoothing performance sacrificed?

What is the possibility of sticking a ti coil spring shock on the back there?

What the hell?
But that setup looks sick for sure. Those who didn't read the XX1 release article ought to - seeing a long-travel bike without a chainguide looks as odd as Hammerschmidts did a few years ago. (Me, I'd be running a bash guard given what that ring costs!)

RIde. Eat. Repeat.

Alex - they ARE making them, but they're not listed in the catalogue. I had this discussion with Specialized after the 2013 launch, and the CDN marketing manager said that they will be in stock.

You'll have to go through a Specialized dealer and place a special order.

So it's an extra-special dream. I guess that's ok then. Did they say why it's such a secret? I'd be ashamed of making really big bikes too I guess :???:

They are making a few XL's but I've been told, only a very limited quantity of them. Think ~ 10 of them

No Im legitimately interested in a new frame. But I doubt I'd shell out 4k for a frame
