    My new 2013 Epic Expert

    I Had a 2012 Comp Carbon Epic and Loved the frame and geometry but wasn't a fan of the color (orange) and components . So for this year I went for the the Expert (white) My New bike weighted (medium) 25.88 out the box. (no pedals) I swapped out the saddle (same only carbon rail I had) and seat-post (thomson Masterpiece) and tires (had a 2.2 s-works fast track for front and moved the 2.0 to the rear) and converted the tires to Tubeless. Now it weights 24.99 w/ spd pedals, and garmin mount installed. I had everything from my last epic so extra cost so far is zero.

    I plan on getting some ESI grips (red), carbon S-works bar (Last years red one), and XTR shifters. (on the way) I think it will weight about 1lb less. I'll update in a few weeks when I get it all together.
    And maybe in the far future some Roval SL wheels ..

    Very very beautiful bike. I have one on order for my wife. We will pick it up on 8th of april.

    First changes here will be XX fd, xtr chain, X.0 rd and twister, tubeless, phenom pro and x.0 disc brakes. Most likely the post will be a kcnc ti pro lite but it will be after her body geometry measurements.

    Please post more pics

    Nice! Is the black/red carbon bar still available? Looking out for it as well. Do you have a link?

    I've been trying to find one, but no such luck. I bet there is a local shop somewhere that has them. Anyway I went a head and ordered this years (white) one.
