Product description

Right, so I'm selling my much loved Epic 29r as I've just bought a Stumpy (better Geo's for the type of trails I do now) and need to balance the books. Upgraded the seat post to a Specialized Command Dropper (£250) which comes with the bike because I'm nice like that. This bike was £2600 new. Recently serviced. I've upgraded the tyres to Maxxis Cross-Marks but can supply the original tyres if you really want. There are the usual marks from a second hand bike. Super ride, very very fast and forgiving!

The M5 aluminium Epic Comp 29 has 100mm of travel and 29-inch wheels to smooth any cross-country terrain.

M5 alloy Competitive XC frame with 100mm of efficient FSR suspension features 29er-specific geometry with short chainstays, low BB, and roomy top tube for confident all-day riding and racing

Specialized and Fox put their heads together to develop the FlowControl Mini Brain shock with Brain Fade inertia valve, air spring, and adjustable rebound for the ultimate in racing and trail riding performance; new 2012 tune

RockShox Reba RL 29 fork with 100mm travel, lockout and rebound adjust, allows this 29er to charge technical terrain

Specialized Hi Lo disc hub has a higher flange on the disc side, which stiffens the 29er wheel in this high-stress area. Combined with 142+ spacing and sealed cartridge bearings, this wheelset punches well above its weight

S-Works Fast Trak 2.0” front and Renegade Control 2.0” rear 2Bliss ready, dual-compound tyres deliver exceptional speed and traction, while minimizing rotating weight

SRAM X9 long cage, 10-speed rear derailleur is super-tough and light, yet delivers pinpoint shifts
