This year Specialized have reworked a legend. The Enduro has had a facelift and we love what we see! John has been lucky enough to see the bike up close and personal and there is a host of new features on both of the new chassis for each wheel size.
The Key features of the new bike are:
- 160/165mm travel on the 29er and 170mm on the 650B
- The SWAT Door that was introduced to great acclaim last year on the Stumpjumper and Camber is now a part of the Enduro.
- Lower bottom bracket
- Slacker head angle
- Roomier cockpit
- Shorter chain stays
- Boost hub spacing allowing 29 or 27+ wheels
- Updated sleek x-wing frame
- Threaded bottom bracket
- One size bearings across all FSR pivots
We love the bike so much that we have 5 coming for our test fleet. We will have the Enduro Elite Carbon 29 in medium and large and the Enduro Comp 650B in small, medium and large. We will let you know when these arrive in stock (probably early in the new year)
The bike will come in both 29 and 650B in four models
Pro Carbon $8.900
Elite Carbon $6,600
We have Comp, Elite and Pro models coming in to stock in October so call now for more details and a chance to preorder.
One of the highlights of the 2017 product launch for Specialized has been the introduction of a new range of “Bike Packing” (touring for the old folk like John) bags. The Burra Burra range offers some really well put together bags with excellent mounting systems to your bike. The picture below shows a range of the bags (others available) on the new 2017 Specialized Sequoia. click the link to read a great article about the range of bags. The prices are in US$ but should be close to the Australian prices. http://www.bikepacking.com/gear/specialized-burra-burra-bikepacking-bags/

The new 2016 Specialized S-Works Road shoes have arrived in store so we thought we would give you some feedback on how they have changed.
The new shoes offer the key Body Geometry features that have always made S-Works shoes the market leader in comfort and performance. The biggest plus of the new shoes for us is a newly designed toe box that offers more room for your toes which will provide a big improvement in long ride comfort. Mitch had the change to do some test rides of the new shoes in California early this year and this was the first thing he noticed about the shoes. So for those of you who found the previous generation of S-Works shoes a little narrow or “too racey” the new S-Works shoes will provide all the performance with even more comfort. At the moment we have black in stock with White due in early December and Red available to order on request.
This also means that for those of you who love the previous S-Works road shoe we have great prices to offer on our existing stock. Below is a picture of the colours still available in store in just about all sizes from 41-48. These are now only $250!
We will be closed this Saturday 3rd October to celebrate Brad and Kiri’s wedding. Besides this there is also a football match on and some great cycling events to take part in.
We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience and will be back to normal trading hours on Monday.

We are really pleased to announce that we are now the Western Australian dealer for Santa Cruz Bicycles.
Santa Cruz are one of the premier mountain bike manufacturers in the world and are one of the most sought after because of their fantastic attention to detail.

Santa Cruz also offer a lifetime frame warranty and the real kicker is the lifetime bearing replacement!

We thought it was time for some more info on our webpage so why not start with a review of one of the newest and most fun bikes in the shop!
Yeti has release a few great bikes over the past couple of months significantly reviewing their line up to continue bringing us incredible bikes. The three key bikes are the new and improved ASRc, the SB5 and the SB6. With the great success and ton of reviews surrounding the SB5 and SB6 we thought we would offer a view on the ASRc.
The ASRc offers 120mm front and 100mm rear suspension and with its full carbon frame it is a light weight race machine with a fun element. Weighing in at only 11kg without trying to make it lightweight it creates a fun bike with great acceleration.
Having ridden and raced a few S-Works Epics over the past three years I am use to great acceleration and awesome handling but the ASRc takes it to the next level! The 120mm forks creates a much more relaxed head angle of 69 degrees and while I may reduce the travel to 100mm for racing it does create versatility without creating compromise.
As with all the Yetis we sell there is the ability to customise every element of the build. On this occasion I have gone with a SRAM X01 1×11 build using the alloy X1 crank set. For braking it is the most reliable brake on the market the Shimano XT with 160 rotors front and back keeping weight down and still providing ample braking power. For the wheels I have put my old Mavic SLR wheels on. I love these and while I will upgrade to the new Mavic Crossmax SL the current wheels provide a great stiff option without breaking the bank on a set of carbon hoops.
To check out the new Yeti range come in and see us at Wembley Cycles to work out which bike suits you best. The SB5 is on the show floor and the SB6 will be in soon.
Here is a sneaky look at the cool stuff that came through our front door this week…
Limited Edition Saddles
We received three Specialized Edition saddles; a ‘red is faster’ Toupe, a ‘stay corked’ Romin and a ‘Belgian classic’ leather Chicane. All three are 143 width and come with matching tape.
Cavendish Limited Edition Run
Our limited run of Cavendish apparel and components arrived. This includes an S-Works Evade helmet, S-Works shoe and a Cavendish kit with matching gloves. Best of all, it matches our store colours beautifully!
Stumpjumper Evo 650B
Specialized have replaced the popular Stumpy Evo 26 (that so many of our staff own) with a 650B version.
Similar to the 26” Evo, it features 150mm of travel combined with a low bottom bracket and slack head angle, meaning it rips jumps and corners. By adding 650B wheels it rolls a touch quicker and ensures wheels and tyres to suit will be easy to come by in the future. Our staff are also very pleased that the bike now comes with Shimano brakes!
This is an ideal bike for those who ride trails of the Gunjin/Luvin Shovels style, and is the perfect steed for Gravity Enduro races.
