    Should be soon since they are already sending out parts to the field. I would expect the bikes already in customers or shops hands would be fixed first and the bikes in the wharehouse being unboxed, retrofitted, and reboxed as quick as the techs can do it.

    I don't suppose anyone has heard when the replacement parts will make it down to Australia / New Zealand?

    For anyone else there from Australia / NZ - apparently the parts are still 2 weeks away from hitting the local distributors There was some issue with painting them the right color.

    Fingers crossed this is sorted before xmas ...

    Some have been sent to some shops. I am still waiting for my specific seat stay as of today. Your LBS should have sent a post card out to you, if not, I would be on the phone with them.

    I am sorted now.
    Birmingham Specialized Concept Store handled it all pretty well.
    I collected my Epic Marathon Carbon December 12th. It is neat.

    I was just told first part of january that all the bikes are still on the boat, so you must be the only one in the country to have one ?

    Epic Marathon Carbon - in UK

    Jimmylegs,
    My bike arrived in UK early November and was one of the ones impounded and not let out of the shop. The fresh rear triangle was flown to UK by air and retro-fitted at the shop. I was told that it was flown from the USA to UK. I suppose it was feasible to fly a component, but complete bikes will follow on a slow boat from Taiwan.
    Have managed to add lightness by removing about a dozen stupid stickers so far.
    Its a shame I can't plan to fit a Hope or Chris King ceramic bottom bracket. Recently I don't tend to get long life out of BB's and my last Ultegra road one lasted only 500miles. And this Epic is likely to have a much much filthier existence than that - the only option for the Epic carbon frame is the Shimano BB-91, which appears to have XT/Ultegra-quality bearings.
    Now I've just to remove the inner tubes and try the Specialized version of going tubeless

    Mutly, my bad. I just assumed you were in US and you got a new one off the floor. I was told all the bikes were here in the stated when the recall came out and had to back to Taiwan and now they are done and back on the boat. The last update was saying first part of january.

    worth the wait

    Jimmyleggss,
    Around here the winter weather has been horrific so I haven't missed any MTB riding with the delay. Just kept commuting, cross-country, on my old Fisher workhorse.
    Good luck. Hope your wait is that short.
    It will be worth the wait.

    I'm sorry to revive this thread but I just got aware of this issue after buying from ebay a Specialized Epic 2010 Expert frame.

    Can you notice from this pic is this is one of the affected lot?

    Warranty won't transfer from owner to owner. I'm pretty sure it's for the original owner only.

    Purchased my Marathon Carbon frame in August 2010. How can I find out if this one is affected?

    Btw, has anyone heard of problems with the seat stay getting wider over time so that the seat post has play?

    I guess this is why my LBS had 3 different 2010 epics on for hot prices last week, dodgy fackers!
