    Exciting stuff. I predict the Epiphany will be another home run like the Moment has been.
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    Well don't hold out on us dude - we want to see some pictures of all these Epi's you're selling! Built, unbuilt, low lighting...anything is better than the same old 5 pictures from Interbike I keep looking at.

    Was just over at Tree Fort and they should hopefully have one of the first midwest epi's built by the end of next week. Is there a build anybody is looking for? I can relay the info. I have heard talks of a X.O trigger build with juicy carbon 185's

    that's sweet- I like the crank bros colbalt crank it's very nice. I got the carbon juicys and sram trigger shift sitting here waiting for my frame to be shipped to OZ which should be priority!! typical yanks always trying to take first bite on the cherry, shouldn't you be spending your money on guns and ammo or something?

    Damn!

    That is light, add another lb for decent tires and some pedals and it'll still be under 25lbs, damn that's light!

    Ciao,
    Thats a great weight. Makes me smile.

    I thought that build would have been a little heavier. Not sure why, just sorta thought...
    Trev!

    Yeah me too...

    Not that far off though.

    The finish is still ano, it is just no longer shot peened or bead blasted, it is more of an old school ano look.

    Some of the colors are a two tone ano. These will each be unique, as the colors will not run together the same way twice. We had two that were the same blue and black mix. One looked like blue splattered on black, and one looked like wisps of blue smoke. These are extremely difficult to get a feel for in a picture. They both looked great.

    i meant shot penned finish... very clean and classy...

    i am sure new finish will be as good looking as anything, but it won't have the class of the shot penned finish...

    i may change my opinion when i see one of the new frames in the next little while...

    I believe the Epiphany frame weighs only a 1/4 pound more than the Truth.

    but that is about it...

    my large truth with decent wheels and 5th element was in 25.5 pounds range... this was with XTR, Next LP cranks and handlebar, Thomson seatpost and stem etc... pretty light build...

    Pretty light parts on board by the looks not sure of the weight of that crank
    but 06 XO Ds shifters carbon seatpost!

    Weight is saved in the wheels so what hubs ya running rims etc!

    Do like that new look myself, wieght scares me a bit for a 5inch bike! so hopefully if the weight is accurate she'll hold up!

    My only concern with light builds!

    my build is not much heavier than his... and my frame should be lighter than his...

    i'll wait to hear more user data and then make up my mind...

    Do I want one? YES! Can I afford one? NO! I just bought the Moment from you guys about a month ago.

    My friends tell me you have green one hanging on the wall right now.

    Hmm...Id Rider. I know a guy at Path that rides an Id but soon to be replaced by a Rogue.

    Speaking of financing... you guys offered my friend financing on a Fox 36. Mountain biking certainly has changed over the years that now there's need to finance a fork. It won't be long before a top shelve bike hits $10K
