make / manufacturer: Specialized
model name / number: Epic Carbon Comp World Cup

~A RockShox Reba RL 29 fork offers up 100mm of smooth travel, while an easily accessible compression and rebound adjusts permit you to customize the feel according to the terrain at hand.

~Roval 29 alloy wheels feature a 21mm internal width, making them plenty stiff and lightweight for XC racing.

~Custom FOX/ Specialized remote Mini Brain rear shock features AUTOSAG for easy set up and 95mm of fine-tunable suspension. To maximize efficiency, the proprietary design allows the shock to differentiate rider input and trail bumps, so the suspension feels firm under effort and plush over rough terrain.

~By pairing a FACT 9m carbon fiber frame w/ a M5 alloy rear end with our World Cup XC 29 Geometry, this Epic places a focus on tight tube angles and light overall weight for explosive speed and nimble handling on the race circuit.

~The drivetrain is comprised of a mix of SRAM 1x11 components, hand-selected to provide maximum performance. Combine, the GX and S-1000 pieces deliver crisp shifting, stiff pedaling, and reliable precision--no matter what direction you're pointing the bike on the trail.

By far the FASTEST bike I have ever ridden. If your with your buddies on the trails or on the way to the trails your gonna smoke them, no one will be able to keep up with you.

The Fox Reba RL fork is a beast and probably the best fork to have in Texas imo and works perfectly with rear brain suspension. The SRAM drivetrain is amazing. If your not familiar with SRAM check them out. Smooth shifts every time and one of the most durable and highest quality drivetrains on the market. There is a reason the Epic has been dominant for so long and this world cup edition will show you why, it is loaded with very desirable components and needs absolute nothing. Specialized has been regarded as the best manufacturer in this industry and with superior quality, geometry, design, and attention to detail. you will no doubt enjoy every ride on this bike it will be very much missed! You will get loads of compliments and lots of stares!;)

It's really the ultimate weapon. The brain suspension keeps it really stiff on the road. When I run the 2.0 tires I have no problem keeping up with any road bike on long trips!

For a top-of-the-line bike, It's super low maintenance and frame is very natural feeling making it fun for a rider of any level. I got its tune up 20 miles ago in preparation for its sale. I'd be glad to coordinate a time to show the bike via email.

The only reason I am selling is because I will be traveling up north in terrain more suitable for a 27.5+. I am in no rush to sale and don't mind keeping it in my line up!
