I've got a new Specialized bike coming my way very soon. I've patiently been waiting for the new Epics to arrive, which are currently in production, but I've managed, through good graces of working for the company, to hold one for myself. It should be arriving in the next week or so, and I'm pretty excited to throw my leg over it. My Open will soon begin to see less and less miles as I transition over to the new bike, especially since I'll be racing with the Specialized Muscle Milk team next season. I went with an Epic Expert World Cup instead of the S-Works model. The graphics are more subdued and more my taste, and the weight difference isn't too bad for a bike that roughly half the cost. Great value if you ask me.
