    Where in the world is Floyellow S-Works?

    Damn, I'm excited about this new addition. Unfortunatly I'm still unpatiently waiting. Sounds like February before it shows, and for the life of me, I can't get a straight answer or pic on the Floyellow color S-works. I'm mainly looking so that I can color match a few parts, but part of me also want's to know what the hell my new bike is going to look like. I did manage to stumble onto some video of one a month or so ago, but it looked like a demo and I know how the demos can sometimes differ in color from the final production.

    The floyellow in the lower end models is more of a lime greenish, but I've seen the Floyellow on other S-works and it's almost neon yellow.

    Help a brotha out...

    I'd be interested in the video if you can remember where you saw it.

    Yup that's the video, and yup, those are the glam pics, but what I'm looking for is the real deal raw photos. You never do know with Specialized. I've seen colors on the website that look way different in person.

    I was just looking through your shops pictures and damn that is one helluva shop. Makes my local shops look like a shack, I wish they'd stock any high end stuff.

    That looks way more yellow than green. Hmmm. Hope my choice was a good one and I don't regret it

    I think flow yellow is supposed to be the color of antifreeze
    my alloy epic frame said it is yellow and it looks like it is made out of prestone

    I could be wrong again

    Any idea whether they received one because they are a Specialized store or if they are shipping ? Been waiting patiently since I ordered in July.

    S-Works Epic 29er frameset in Flo Yellow. Ordered it in July, the day I saw it at the dealer event in Keystone CO.

    Cool! Any chance you could take off the fork, seatpost and rear hub and weight the frame for us? Thanks

    Picked up the frame/fork today....WOW! It's definitely more neon yellow than the photo above shows. VERY flashy looking. Frame (size M) weighs 5lbs. 2oz. This includes the seatpost clamp. Fork weighs 3lbs. 8oz. I'll post more pics on Sunday...installing my crankset/rings tonight.

    Ok, a few facts. The front derailleur needs to be a S3 derailleur mount. I kept the S1 XX derailleur from my Epic Marathon 29er and it didn't fit. Secondly, the rear hub appears to be the same as the one from the other Epic models. Doesn't appear to have any DT internals. Thirdly, the frame does not come with adapters to accommodate a 160mm rotor. This may only be the case for the medium frames. I'll post some pics in the next few days.
