For sale is a 2017 Specialized Epic FSR Expert Carbon World Cup 29er in an XL size. Very clean and has almost zero knicks or scratches in the frame. Works flawlessly and has the brain on the front and rear shock. Only selling because I decided to try a different hardtail and have another full suspension bike. Below are things to note about the bike -Entire rear shock was rebuilt at the beginning of this season including the brain -Chain wear is within limits and does not need to be replaced -Replaced both sests of pads and rotors mid season due to contamination/ noise -Wheels are straight and true -Maintained religiously and needs nothing- always went above and beyond what was necessary for service -Does not include pedals or cage, and original stem will be put back on Frame-Specialized FACT 9m, carbon front triangle, M5 alloy rear end, XC Geometry, MFS chainstay, PF30 BB, carbon headset cups, 12x142mm rear spacing, internal cable routing, 95mm of travel, SWAT tool cradle Fork-RockShox SID w/Brain, Position Sensitive damper, top-mount Brain Fade adjust, rebound adjust, Solo Air spring, tapered alloy crown/steerer, 15x100mm Maxle Stealth thru-axle, 100mm of travel, 46mm offset Rims/Wheels-Roval Control, hookless alloy, 21mm inner width Hubs-Roval ControlSpokesDT Swiss Revolution Crankset-RaceFace Aeffect, 6000-series alloy, 24mm spindle, 49mm chainline Chainrings-32T Bottom Bracket-PF30 Rear Derailleur-SRAM X1 Rear Cogs-SRAM XG-1150, 11-speed, 10-42t Shifters-SRAM X1 Handlebars-Specialized Mini-rise, 7050 alloy Tape/Grips-Specialized Sip Grip Stem-Specialized, 3D-forged alloy Brakes-Shimano Deore SLX M7000, hydraulic disc, Front: 180/160mm; Rear: 160mm Saddle-Specialized Body Geometry Phenom Comp Seatpost-Specialized aluminum Factory Description Turn your go-fast dreams into reality! Specialized's Epic Expert Carbon World Cup is the machine to make it happen. It rocks 95mm of Brain-controlled FSR rear suspension and a RockShox 100mm SID fork for unprecedented climbing and confident descending. The state-of-the-art FACT 9M-carbon front-triangle is not only light, it's also super stiff for lightning-fast accelerations and pinpoint handling. Plus, this XC-rocket is equipped with a stellar component package: a full SRAM 1x11 drivetrain for flawless, lightning-fast shifting, Roval Control aluminum wheels and a set of wonderfully powerful Shimano Deore SLX hydraulic disc brakes.

November 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
Not sure why Niner filing Chapter 11 is a bad thing. They were proactive about it before the lack of capital affected their ability to fullfill orders, develop good products, support customers, and keep employees. Good for them for seeking this as a viable solution so they could get an injection of capital

Banned in the USA: Part 1
Living in Colorado, nothing makes me more frustrated that seeing how much of the beautiful high country we are not allowed to ride in. There are miles and miles of land that we are not allowed in- 1st world problems I know, but its still a shame to not be allowed in in some of the most remote places in and around areas like crested butte, aspen, vail, winter park etc. These articles expose the errancy of the division between groups.
