    i got tired of waiting and opted for the 29er epic comp (same price as the marathon f/f for complete bike) and swapped out all of the parts. had it a few weeks now. love the ride! 29er is the way to go!

    I have a large 2010 marathon, the brain recall was not for the 29er's...I have been riding it for near 2 months and love it. 25.0 lbs tubeless w pedals and a few other small things I kept from my 2009 Epic

    My Epic Comp 29 size XL just came in last week-

    Just under 29 lbs stock, which seems like a lot. But getting down to Marathon weight costs about $50 per ounce!

    Jimmy-What wheels are you riding?

    What wheels are the rest of you riding? What combos have you found to weigh less than the stock marathon Roval wheelsets?

    I've got a set of the Industry Nine XC wheels. The are a little lighter than the Rovals, a whole lot stiffer, much quicker engagement, and a whole lot sexier. The Ultralights are a bit lighter still with the Stans 355 rims.

    I'm with you Jimmy, they should be shipping very soon. Can't wait to here some reviews or post my own. With a few mods I should be able to get it down close to S-WORKS weight for alot less money.I have heard they are about 24lbs stock.I am thinking the S-WORKS 2 by crank will fit right in.

    The S-Works crank is sick. I had one last year...amazingly stiff, and I love the double. Think I'm going with the XX this year though just for availability issues.

    '09 marathon

    I've got an '09 aluminum marathon. straight out of the box it was 25.2 lbs. I would imagine the '10's would be comparable or lighter.

    Just built my '10 Carbon Marathon up yesterday. 24.9lbs out of the box with XT pedals. Not quite as light as I was hoping, but getting my XX crank in shortly, switching to I9's and tubeless, and then we'll see how it looks.
    Also, generally speaking, going to a compact means that the derailleur is going to be a little high with the direct mount, so going to a compact front d can help a lot (like the XX). Other than that, direct mount compact front ds are hard to find.

    speaking with a specialized re-- looks like no 26x42 even thu it is listed on the web page. I was told that they for 2010 the opted to roll with the sram spider and chain sets -- mine has been b/o for some time 28/42 the other option is 26/39.. but I would be silly not to mention that this is what I have been told -- it may not be a fact --
