    Epic Rear Triangle Linkage

    I have a 2008 Epic with the alloy linkage. I am trying to figure out if I can upgrade to a Carbon linkage (pictured below).

    Depends on what year your frame is. You can call Specialized direct. I tried to do the same thing with my 2003 epic using a 2004+ carbon linkage but they said it wouldn't fit. I guess the travel increased from 90mm to 100mm the following year. It would have been cool though and an easy swap.

    I am thinking of doing that on my 08 as well. As long as you get one from an 08 it will work. In fact in 08 all the rear triangles were M5 even on the S-works except for that linkage changing to carbon on the higher end they were all identical.
    Character trumps Charisma every time.

    looking at their site the comp models were the only ones not to have the carbon linkage. The pic above is from an 07, it was the best one I could find of that part.
