Hub spacing and dish offset for 2007 Enduro
Hi, I have a Specialized Enduro SL Pro from 2007. I am thinking of replacing the wheels, but can’t find what the hub spacing is. Also, I heard something about Specialized off setting the drop outs. Did they do this with the Enduro as well?
Plus: An obscure punk rock reference.
Great bike. I’ve rocked mine on a wide range of terrain from smooth flow to DH gnar. Here’s some smooth flow:
Hub spacing: Your mighty 2007 Enduro uses standard MTB rear spacing, which is 135mm. Any “normal” QR hub will work — especially if it’s purple.
Rear dish: Some Specialized mountain bikes do have asymmetrical rear ends. This lets you build a wheel with zero dish, which is stronger and more punk rock than a standard dished rear wheel. However, according to this article — Specialized asymmetrical rear ends — your Enduro has a standard rear end.
How to tell for sure: Slap a wheel in there. If the rim/tire are 6mm too far to the drive side, get a spoke wrench and pull them back to center.
Anarchy burger. Hold the government please.
Know more. Have more fun!

The mention of an ‘obscure punk rock reference’ caught my attention. Nice. I haven’t listened to the Vandals in a loong time. “The grass is never greener on the other side, I’ll sit right here and frolic in the dirt and gravel… Let the bad times roll.”
