Thought the QR is gone and 15mm is coming...
Seems I was mistaken... ?!?
What's odd to me is Epic comps come with 9mm RWS Thru bolt but the Expert model only comes with a standard 5mm quick release. Seems like a downgrade on the more expensive model.
I believe that their reasoning is that the standard QR with the Specialized OS28mm end caps is lighter and just as stiff as 15mm thru. Whether or not that is actually the case is open to others to decide...
I have 2 epics, one with Fox 15mm and one with Specialized's OS28mm caps on a RS Sid and notice no real difference.
S-Works all the bikes!
