My Next Race Bike

2014-s-works-epic You all may have seen the 2014 launch from Specialized last week, which includes mountain and road bikes, but this beauty has all of my attention. The new S-Works Epic has been redesigned with a new frame and Brain tweaks, and introduces the S.W.A.T. kit (storage, water, air and tools). There are two versions of the Epic, the Marathon and World Cup. The main differences of the World Cup (pictured above) is that it can only run a 1x drivetrain, has slightly short chain stays, which are mega fat, a slightly longer top tube and steep head tube angle. This makes a really tight handling bike suited to my style of riding/racing. I have yet to throw my leg over one to see for myself, but I have seen and even touched this stunner. Can't wait to get one.
