Levo
The bikes ship here in the next few days and we should be seeing the bikes as soon as Sept. 7th. The Levo Comp will come here in the USA in Storm Grey and Black. Can't wait to see them and pick mine out!~
Where did you hear that the bikes are shipping in the next few days, and should arrive by Sept 7?
Thanks

Wondering how they can ship in the next few days if they're not showing up on the dealer portal and the calls into Specialized reps keep saying late September?

Yeah. Dealers still can’t even order them. I suspect his dealer is misleading him.

Peeps,

2020 Kenevo - anyone seen any spy shots of this yet? I am thinking that this will have an almost identical frame to the new Enduro, along with 29" wheels... likely meaning that it will be 170mm travel, with a possibility of a 180mm up front. Slight chance that they may have a dual crown option too...

Anyone got any dirt on this girl yet?

Cheers
Ben

Just ordered a 2020 Levo Comp in matt black, comes with 700 battery and black Lyric fork. An exciting couple of weeks for it to arrive here in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Well done, i ordered the blue Comp. I wonder who will get it earlier ;-)

Great. Thanks for posting and congrats on the new bike.
Are these specs really for the base model? Based on a quick Google on these parts they do not seem "base" at all.

no, the original fork was a RS 35 gold, and the brakes were sram level T

So, 2020 Kenevo. Black or green, side brace like the levo. 27.5. Boxxers. Same levo motor

I heard from a journalist that the new Kenevo is definitely 27.5, and will have a dual crown option, though this was a few months ago so not sure how up to date his info was. He said Speech wanted to keep it at 27.5 to emphasise play-fullness over the more trail orientated 29'r Levo, and differentiate the two lines

Ah, sorry. Now, I understand your post.

These "improvements" of the base model do compare to the 2019 model but are customized and they improve upon the base 2020, right?
Because now I have found the specs for the 2020 base model (see attached). Why did you decide to go for the 2020 base and then invest all that money and why didn't you go for a higher-priced 2020 model in the first place?

Edit: had never heard of cushcore before. Sounds amazing. For me, this seems to be the most useful of all the upgrades you have mentioned (considering the prices).

I went for the base model, because at the end it's cheaper to upgrade and you can get better parts for the extra money you pay for a higher price 2020... I Pay like 2/3 of the money difference with the comp, for top of the line fork, brakes and cushcore, ..... I don't need a bigger battery
neither carbon frame, and I have read a lot of longterm reviews... and all the models have 2 weekness (except the sworks)... brakes and fork... Also because where I live in Chile is very rocky and loose so was imperative have good suspension (watch Andes Pacifico in youtube and here all the trails are like the first day of the race), next upgrade will be coil shock...
