I went out for a short road ride after work and when I got back a 09 Specialized Epic Expert Carbon frameset was hanging on my repair stand with a note that said "Happy father's day/birthday" ….

Unfortunately, that was on a Thursday and the next day we were heading to the 24hrs of Big Bear so I didn't have time to build it up for the big race. But once I got home I started robbing parts of my old ride and built it up.

Right now it is at 24.2lbs. Once I swap out a few of the heaver parts it will be under the 24lbs mark. :thumbsup:
I just can't wait to get out of work today so I can take it out for a spin.

Looks very nice; I'm guessing the hints helped!
Yea, after drooling over the one in the LBS I think she got the hint. I kept telling her I'm glad that's a XL frame so I am not tempted to buy it. Then one day I come home and a medium frame is hanging there waiting to be built up :D Only bad thing is now she is going to hold it against me forever now. I can just hear it now "....remember I bought you that epic frame......."

Yea, I am lucky to have her and I do whatever I try to keep her happy. It works both ways.
So therefore no pics of the wife!

Yea, Lucky I am! Lucky I have a woman that enjoys and understands this the sport. This is by far the best present I have ever recieved.
Finally got to take it out for a spin the other day and man, it rides as good as it looks. Now the true test will be this Sunday's race ;)
