    New Job = new bike

    I started a new job as a sales manager at bike shop that doesn't carry Rocky Mountain bikes so I sadly had to give up my ETSX 70. This new Epiphany helped to soften the blow I can't wait to ride her.

    I would love to know what some of you guys in the 170 to 180 range run for shock PSI.

    Here is the build
    Med Epiphany frame
    cross max SLR wheels with stans
    Pushed TALAS RLC
    Juicy carbon brakes
    Race Face Next sl carbon bars and post
    Race Face Dues stem 90mm
    FSA K Force carbon cranks
    Sram XO triggers and rear der
    Sram hollow pin chain

    I will weigh her tomorow at work anyone want to guess.

    Congrats on the new Epi. You will love the ride! I know I love mine. I'm about 175 lbs, but I don't remember how many PSI I'm running on the shock - usually whatever gets me about 25% sag. As for weight, I'll guess 26.5 lbs. Enjoy the bike.

    Nice build JHB and congrats - I am really curious on how much it weighs. My medium epi weighs in at 28.1 lbs - I have the pike 454 dual air and tubeless 2.1 kendas (that might be the wieght factor) - The damn thing still climbs badass tho. I rode my buddy's moots cinco ti and it was a pound lighter than my epi - can't really feel much of a difference in the weight or the climbs. [my scale could be busted] I I'll post some pictures after work so you fellas can see.

    Gracias

    I weighed her at work today and she's 25.72 pounds. I am going to grab some light rubber and see what that does.
