Up for Auction is my sons 2016 Specialized Epic Expert Carbon World Cup, full suspension mountain bike. This bike has brought him many spots on the podium, and is ready to do the same for you! This is a 29er wheel, and medium mens carbon frame. This is the expert model so carbon front and aluminum swingarm. It is in good condition and was at all times maintained as if it needed to be ready to race! We did swap out the sid brain fork for a lighter stepcast Fox fork with the upgraded Fit 4 damper so you get a Climb/Trail/Descend mode as well as slow speed compression and rebound adjustments. The rear shock was just sent in to specialized a couple of months ago so it’s also in great shape. The wheels have been upgraded to Specialized’s best Carbon Keep an eye on SL with Full DTSwiss hubs , front and rear. XTR 9000 brakes, and XX1 shifter, derailleur, and cassette are also on the upgrade list. We made up our minds whilst doing the fork to put Cane Creeks 110 headset on this bike with full american made bearings and much higher quality than the stockers. Lastly we installed a Praxis works Bottom bracket and Race Face Next SL carbon cranks to drop the weight even further and kill a creak we were hearing. As you’ll see by the picture showing weight this bike comes in at less than 23.00 pounds and thats including the multi tool that sits above the shock in the frame, and 2.3″ tires! This bike is in very solid condition but it does have wear and tear. My son kept the bars very low and more than once if the bike fell over the shifters scratched the top tube ( pictured ), as well as some paint being rubbed of inside the chain stays. Of course the wheels have the usual nicks from going fast over rocky terrain but they are totally true and show no sign of giving you any troubles, and of course with the dtswiss internals the hubs must last a long , long time! Please feel free to ask any question you’ll think of , and maybe wait to bid until i answer. Also please look at my feedback and bid with confidence knowing i do good business. Free local pick up is welcomed, but my packaging will be done with extreme care and will come the usage of fedex ground with insurance.
