    07 EXP EPIC

    T-bike- 1 ride
    110 spec stem
    Easton Monkeylite HR carbon
    CK headset
    ~26-27#'s




    I'm all about efficient pedal strokes and love to climb. My '00 stumpjumper HT was beating me up on the downhills and I was due for a FS upgrade. 4" of travel, smart shock, powerful d-brakes great geometry,climbs well, rides like its on rails and its in my fav color. I'd like to lighten it up w/ a new wheelset. Any suggestions???

    But still sweet. Frame is a 04... the stock parts are the brakes, stem, headset, fork, and seat. I am in the process of changing to a SRAM X0 w/ twisters... should be sick

    "05 S-Works Epic Singlespeed

    My 05 S-works Epic SS, I have posted photos of my bike on other forums in previous builds, this is my Epic's current build:

    05 S-works Epic Md
    Fox F100X 100mm fork
    Avid SD SL v-brakes, koolstop red pads
    Nokon cables
    FSA 140 stem
    FSA XC-190 bar
    Pauls v-brake levers
    king headset
    DT-Swiss 1480 wheelset
    Torelli tubes
    Spec Roll-X D2 tires
    Thomson masterpiece seatpost
    Spec Rival SL seat
    Phil Wood TI bottom bracket, SS cups
    Middlburn 7 Cranks w/ uno 32 ring
    Time TI/Carbon pedals
    Endless spacer kit/ rear cog 20t (will change to 18 during summer)

    The Brain shock is well suited for the SS setup, the FSR suspension is not based around chain tension so it is fully active. The bike rides amazingly well, better actually since the SS conversion.

    One of the many reasons I chose to go with the Carbon Marathon instead of the S-Works one. (The major one was price )

    I originally started off with an FSA carbon seatpost and a Ritchey Carbon WCS stem just to see if the weight loss was worth it; but the bike ended feeling...'off'; if you get what I mean. Thomson all the way!

    Hey jut8,

    I was just wondering, how long is the battery run time on the Garmin Edge computer?

    Cheers,

    Victor

    I have yet to wear it out on a ride. I did the 2 day MS150 ride with it on my Tarmac, and it never needed charging. It was on from 7:30-3:30 the first day, and from 7:30 to 12:30 the second day without a having to be charged. It seems to be a pretty long lasting battery. I just make sure i charge it up the day before a long ride. Its been on my trainer also to use the heart rate feature, im on it ever day for an hour, and i havent charged it in the past 3 weeks. Its a great tool, I just wished it interfaced with my Mac Powerbook......i take into school with me and put the info on a PC there, but it would be nice to have that all at home.

    Alfred, yours is def my favorite! That blue frame is my favorite by far! I almost bought a stumpy in that color a couple years ago, but I didn't know they made it in the epic too! Very cool, all the epics, very cool...
