    Replacement bar for 2013 Epic

    So I decided the bars were a little too wide, cut some off and put on a new set of grips. Love the new grips but they moved my hands in and the bars were too short. I ordered a replacement from big S, same size as original put on the new grips and have happy hands. However the original bars had white accents which really tied the whole look together the new ones are grey and don't look that great.

    I've been riding it since summer with the grey bars and I know it's petty but the lack of continuity just doesn't jive with my obsessive nature. How do I go about getting another bar with the white accents? Seems to be a convoluted path getting a message to Specialized. I'm too embarrassed to go to my LBS and ask.

    I had the exact opposite feelings about the graphics, haha. The bars felt pretty good once I hacked them down a bit (wide bars never really worked for me) but the graphics had too much going on for my taste and I wanted another carbon bar, so I replaced it with an Enve. If your wanting to stay with an S bar in that color, I'd check ebay.

    Heres one (I don't know why its labeled downhill)

    Yep, that's the one. I have the green and black color scheme and I just thought white on the bar kind of balances things out a bit.

    Really? Took me 10 seconds to find this. They're very responsive on Twitter.
