Specialized Epic HT Pro Carbon WC 29

$4800 USD
Selling a very nice 2017 Specialized Epic HT Pro Carbon World Cup 29er with the in GLOSS GALLARDO ORANGE/BLACK. It's a slight spec variation of the original bike, shown here: I built the frameset up with a mix of new parts and some parts that I had on an Epic FSR. Where (new) is indicated, this means NEVER RIDDEN, aside from a 100-yard spin down a paved street to make sure everything worked. After that it's been hanging in the garage, waiting for you to buy it. This is a very nice XC race bike, but you can also get sideways on smooth rolling singletrack at that neighborhood park near your house; the trails don't have many crazy features, but enough berminess to make you smile. This bike will you get you to the top faster than all the others, and if you're on your game, will help you get down almost as quickly. The frame's bright orange color is fading in some areas, but in consistent manner, not splotchy. It's mostly pronounced on the corners of the top tube, from the head tube to the seat tube. It almost looks like a feature, not a bug, sort of like the heat-sensitive paint Specialized used on the Olympic road bikes a few years back (this paint is NOT heat-sensitive). WHEELS: Roval Control Carbon 29 (new) ( CHAIN: Shimano 11-speed (new) BOTTOM BRACKET: Wheels Mfg PF30 Threaded Angular Contact BB CRANKSET: Specialized S-Works "Lightning"-style cranks with custom graphic.

Video: Passionately Advocating for Mountain Bike Access in Marin County, California
I think there's a correlation between population density and land use policies. The people that complain about mountain biking in the Bay Area live in areas where land is aplenty. Yes, it's the politics, but it's a result of a lot of people vying for little resources, simple as that. That's not politics--that's humans. In Marin County, you then have a highly educated populace with access to time and money, a great combination if you want things to lean your way (i.e., hire Jacoby & Myers to keep those pesky kids from interrupting your cognac tasting party in your 10 acre estate). A mountain lion's habitat is about 30 square miles. Encroach on that and people start getting attacked. Imagine that.

First Ride: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Pro Carbon
I have the 2019 regular Stumpjumper S-Works. The frame is black and S-Works is written under the down tube in what is possibly the darkest shade of almost-black that I've ever seen.

Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves [Update: Thieves Arrested]
You mean, who on Pinkbike would ever want an Epic?! It's made even more strange because the thieves were definitely SoCal bros, flatbill hats and all, so weird that they didn't go to an employee first and ask, "Yo, you got anything with a super-slack head tube, Renthal bars and at least 2.6 inch tires, brah? Oh, if there's a TLD version of it, even better, thanks brah! Wait, what? No, it's cool, I have my own set of Monster Energy stickers at home I can throw it on it!"

Video: SRAM's Wireless Eagle AXS Drivetrain Explained
This all sucks ... until it ends up on MY bike, in which case it'll be awesome. On a similar note, all the whining on here reminds me of the infamous customer-feedback quote (incorrectly) attributed to Henry Ford: "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses." "If I asked cheapskate Pinkbike forum denizens they wanted, they would have said cushier saddles."

Review: Roval Traverse Carbon Wheels
People that break rims and wheels all the time are a) lying online about how many wheels they break to "keep it real" (i never see people post photos of their broken wheelsets, hmmmm?), b) weigh 300 pounds and get shuttled to the top by their parents, or c) never read the manual and installed their wheels onto the bottom bracket. Most, if not all, products are designed for riders in the hump of the bell curve, not the outliers.
