I just got a epic 03 with 04 brain its being built at my LBS got Lucky and got the frame for $650. That gave me the cash to build the bike the way i wanted to just waiting for my 05 fox fork 100x to come in. I will post a picture when its all done here are some of the parts that are on it. I have demoed the bike in the parking lot and it didn't have any of the parts below that are on my bike Iam pumped to give it a ride when its done. Did me research for over a 1yr was going to get a Intense 5.5 but got such a killer deal on the epic frame couldnt pass it up. I ive in So Cal and cant wait to hit the trails, all the great people on this website have help me put me bike of dreams into reality.

Not quite what I would choose but that is going to be a really sweet ride. The biggest problem you will have with that setup is getting off the bike. :D :D

Very nice build. By the way, what bike shop did you get the frame from? Do they have any more? I live near you and I have an 03 now, but would like the 04 brain.

I got my frame from Competitive Edge in Upland they have a red Lg fram with 04 brain left.
Yep, thats where I bought my Epic last year. I'll have to talk to Mark over there (I went to high school with him). Maybe he can get an XL, or maybe he has one at his RC store.
