    Actually, that's not so bad if you factor in the wheels. The US price for that frame with a SID fork is $6000, add $1800 for the Control SL wheels = $7800, so with the Spanish 'module' you get the RS1 fork for only $120 more. And no extra charge for that awesome paint job.

    If I could figure out a way to get one of these—short of traveling to Barcelona—I'd do it.

    I forgot the SW WC frame went up 10% this year! 2014 was listed at $5,500.00.

    Is this package available at other EU sites?

    I checked around. I didn't see it anywhere except España. On the bright side, it probably wouldn't be hard to get the wife to agree to a short vacation in Barcelona

    So I actually DID get the wife to agree to a short vacation in Barcelona, but here's the snag: Buy a frame in Europe, no warranty coverage in the US.

    I thought warranty was world wide.

    Well, I have never had an issue with my various Epics and Stumpjumpers over the years.
    Fork is covered by RockShox anyways. If you have an issue with shock and brain, just send that in and they probably won't check.

    You will have to find a shop that can get one in while you are there, otherwise they may have to ship it to you. May not be available until new year. US gets priority on new stuff.

    In Canada, my '14 SW Epic WC frame set wasn't delivered until March '14 and that was a Nov '13 order. ALL the Canadian SW frame sets were sold out by November '13.

    That all being said, check with your US dealer. Sometimes colours like that become available as the months go by. The module might be a popular choice and they'll make it available.

    What I was thinking of doing was having a Specialized Concept Store (there are 2 near Barcelona) order one for me in advance and hold it until our trip.

    Your points about availability and the possibility of that color/config coming to the US are well taken. Regarding warranty though, Specialized is very clear whenever it comes up on their support site that warranty service can only be done through the organization responsible in the region where the bike was purchased. Europe and North America are different regions. And I've had bike frames in the past that needed warranty service, so it's a real issue for me.

    It turns out, though, that all this is academic for me now. After a day on the trails yesterday (on my 2012 Epic Expert) paying close attention to what my bike was doing and how it would be different on a WC, I've decided that the standard Epic geometry is probably better suited to the trails I ride and my riding patterns. So now I'm considering a non-WC 2015 frameset, for which there are no special colors available in far-off lands... that I know of.
