    If the Big S is up to the same old crap, shame on them!!

    Please post up the letter so we know that this is a legit issue and not just a ploy to try to drum up hype for your business, Epix.

    Can't these businesses counter suit on account of this being a frivolous case?

    How many posts about this are you going to make Doc?? I really don't think we need one in every forum especially since it's unconfirmed at this point.

    Hey everyone, grab your pitchforks and jump on the hater bandwagon!!!

    Is anyone else getting tired of weaponized social media? Pretty soon it's going to turn into the boy who cried wolf and no one will listen.

    Maybe people should focus more on the fact that lawyers are making a lot of money for themselves with all of this. Seems to me specialized's lawyers are looking for job security in the wrong ways... and this isn't limited to only specialized, they're just in the limelight right now.

    Sure, they could, but it takes $$$ to afford the legal fees, and that is how the megacorps win. They just drag out the legal proceedings until the little guy is drained of money, then win by default.
    If more people rode more bikes, more places, more often, the world would be a more better place!

    Sorry about the multiple posts in various threads, but I'm just so frustrated with corporate bullies, that I felt the need to get this and the previous story about Café Roubaix out to as wide an audience as possible.

    I have absolutely NO affiliation with Epix, and am now starting to be quite curious myself about seeing a copy of the actual letter.

    Epix says that they will be releasing more info on this situation this evening... and given SpecialEd's history of bullying, I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to Epix over the "S" Holes until proven differently...

    Epix says on their facebook page that they will be releasing more info on this situation sometime this evening. I'm looking forward to the details, myself.

    Jarek Barc That's nice. And TODAY I get a letter from Specialized lawyers saying my family-owned apparel brand, Epix (Epix Cycling & Triathlon Gear) is too similar in their eyes to Specialized "Epic" MTB frames. Come on guys. The wording is DIFFERENT. The stylization on the wording is DIFFERENT. We are not competing for the same clients (bike frames vs apparel). I invested my life in this, just like Dan did. I'm not saying you shouldn't defend what is rightfully yours. I'm saying you are over-reaching. You did so with Dan, you are doing so with me, and I think the vast majority of people will agree.

    FUKK YOU SPECIALIZED!!! IN THE A$$!!! WITH A RUSTED CROWBAR!!! AND NO LUBE!!!
    So the rusty crowbar statement is you or epix saying that?

    Sorry about the confusion, I merely cut and pasted a post by someone at Epix, and then added my own comment to the bottom of it and then pasted it here. It was late last night and I was tired, and I didn't notice that it appeared to read as if I was part of Epix. My apologies to everybody at Epix, if my extreme displeasure at SpecialEd and my even more extreme way of stating such has been interpreted to be from Epix. The opinions stated and the words used are mine and NOT theirs.
