Well after riding an Intense Spider 29 for 2yrs, Iam on Epic now and it rocks. I have it setup as 1x9 now but know by how fast the bike is, 2x9 or 2x10 in near future. Its a very stiff frame and very stable. I took it out today on a snowride and it was amazing i was using specialized buroughs 1.9's. I went with a large frame and the added stablity is noticed instantly for me. This is the first phase for my Endruance/Trail beast.:thumbsup:

You are the 5th or 6th person (the others are friends/riding buddies, 2 of which are nearly pro fast) that I have heard has switched from an Intense Spider 29 to an Epic 29 and been very happy with their decision. And, all of them liked their Intense, so the Epic must be pretty sick.

Man I loved my spider but the epic is just a crazy fast bike u push and it blast off. I was going to stay 1x9 but after a couple of rides its beggin me to put a 44t on the front as sell. It loves togo fast faster the better for him.

J-bar Setup

Ludeatude said:
can you explain your bar set up?
Its a J-bar Tictecs version of Jones H-bar wrapped with bar taped. I have run my handle bars this way for 2 yrs now. I couldn't imagine not using my handlebar setup, having so many hand postion is key to being comfortable at all times.

anyone know how running X9 shifters would work? is that why you run 1x9?
I have X9 shifter with XO rear derailer, Iam about to go 2x9 or 2x10 haven't yet decided, the bike beggs to be ridden faster. I knew after ridding the bike 1x9 would be for a feel of the bike,before going on to the other upgrades commin in the future.
