    How lite is your Epic Comp Alloy?

    I have mine down to 26 lbs, I replaced the wheelset with Roval SL, the shifters, derailleurs and drivetrain are now x0, the front fork is a Sid RL, the saddle is a phenom pro, the handlebar is a Specialized Carbon mini riser and the Seatpost is a Thomson Masterpiece, but the brakes are stock

    I have a 2013 Epic Comp that weighs 23.8 lbs. XX1, Enve bars, Enve seatpost, stock saddle. GC front and Fasttrack rear. If I swapped out the heavy stock saddle and put renegades front and back it would probably be under 23.

    I think low 24's/ high 23's is about as low as you can go. I've had a carbon comp at 24# with a power meter and all high end stuff while I was in between frames. My new WC S-Works weighs 22# with a power meter.
    Pretty good at everything, but not really good at anything!

    A Smart weld aluminum Epic would be very interesting. I have an Allez and it is on par with some of their best carbon.

    My large 2010 is 26.25. Currently has XX drivetrain, X-Max wheels w/ snakeskin Ralphs, Ritchey seatpost, Phenom Ti saddle, Syntace stem, Easton Haven Bars and Juicy 7 brakes.

    After the Ouachita Challenge next weekend it's getting X01 and Mavic SLR's w/ EVO Ralph's. Should be interesting to see how much it drops.

    How lite is your Epic Comp Alloy?

    I have heard that the alloy frame is only .6 lbs heavier than the carbon

    There is a 200g (0.44 lb) difference just between the Carbon Expert and Marathon due to the carbon seat stays on the Marathon vs all-alloy rear of the Expert.
    So I'd find 0.6 lb difference between carbon (even the 10m) and alloy difficult to believe.

    Update on my earlier post.

    I completed the X01 crank swap. Removed the shifter, housing, and front derailleur. Changed my C29ssmax's to new SLR's w/ EVO Ralph's which brought it from 26.26 to 24.84.
