Anybody knows the head tube lenght in 07 epic frames in large size? Head tube lenght in large size for 2008 is 140 mm according to bike metrics on the web, could be a mistake? Thanks

why a mistake... it sounds "in line" with other Large frames from other brands..maybe they are trying to reduce the spacer stack and reduce leverage on the headtube/headset.....

and saddle to handlebar drop? I suppose you like a big drop...

anyhow.. what I try to say..is that usually somebody on a large will have longer legs..with a higher position, which could work with a longer headtube.... as always it is a personal choice... as you say..it could be just a typo... or they changed the frame a bit..

BTW.. I used to ride a 03 Large Epic.. and I used about 20mm of spacers... so it would have worked great for me...
