    Epiphany 275

    Just ordered a frame from them using the loyalty program. Great customer service by the way.

    Anyone have one of these/ride one of these?

    Can't seem to find anything on this bike. Wish it was in the shoot out. I'd like to hear some thoughts on this, maybe see some build pics. Ridden the 26" version and loved it so I have high hopes for this build.

    Ill post up some pics as soon as the frame arrives and I start the build.
    Going with that blue frame with green accents.

    I ordered a md. I'm about 5'11 and always go between md and lg. I know the newer Epi frames have a pretty long top tube so Im Hoping the md will be good.

    I haven't gotten a delivery date yet, they said they're waiting on the shock to come in from fox.

    I'm gettin real antsy, just finished up my wheels, flow ex hoops sapim race spokes blue nips to green king hubs. I have all the parts for this build but no frame I'm goin nuts lol

    Rear tire size is limited

    Like the post title implies - you can't just stick any 'ol tire back there. Initially I had Fox on the phone trying to find out why their shock was letting the tire hit the frame. I had a Hans Dampf 2.35" tire in back. The same tire I have on my Ellsworth Truth. A tight fit, but workable. Now, on the 275 Epiphany - a larger travel bike - I have tire rub. First on the rear derailleur cable and then even still on the drive side of the chain stay. Putting a narrower tire in back solved that problem but left me wanting for landing confidence on jumps. Jumping was the reason for the upgrade to the bigger travel bike. I'm sure the right tire will come along. Any ideas? I prefer a UST. Anyone having any luck with a Nevegal or other? Thanks.

    The ride is smooth. It delivers power when you need it. Excellent acceleration and is a super fast bike. Its only been 2 weeks since I got it assembled so no problems noticed so far.
    I got a medium size with sram xx groupset, I9 torch wheelset and Enve cockpit. Epiphany 275-407148_466242710117919_2143362414_n.jpg

    I have been waiting for mine to show up. Curious, did you all order just frames or full bikes? I am being told that there is a hold up on Fox end of things??

    In my case, I ordered just the frame since it was a Epiphany 650b. Good luck on your bike bro.

    i also ordered just the frame, I waited about a month and a half due to a delay on the shock and the anodizing on the rocker

    We are building one up next week as a demo for the Colorado Ellsworth rep. If it arrives in time it'll be at the go pro mountain games too.

    In any case, if anyone is in Co. and wants a demo ride on it pm me or contact Full Service Bicycle.

    I see that you are running XX1 on yours, as am I. I have the 156 Q cranks and they are within about 4 mm of each chainstay. Are yours this close, or am I just paranoid??

    156Q doesn't fit on my bike. Crank arms hit the chain stay. After speaking with SRAM, they stated that the bike cannot be a 156Q. I had to go with 168Q factor. Plenty of clearance.
