Did you happen to record just the weight of the S-Work Stumpy frame?Stumpy Swork, mediums 27.5 - XX1, Guide Ultimate brakes 8 front - 7 rear, Roval Carbon Fatties set up tubeless , Butcher Front, Slaughter rear, Next SL with 30 tooth, Race Face 35 next 760 bars with Atlas stem, Henge seat, sip xl grips, Command Post, Pike Solo 150, Candie tie pedals with all SWAT stock tools and cage. 26.05 pounds
The dealer event is apparently this week. I would wait to pull the trigger if I were you.Any weights and specs out yet on the 2016 Epic line? Looking at the Comp Carbon 2015, tempted to wait with the new bikes coming out in the next month. Wondering if they changed the seat post size.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll fight the temptation and hold out. I really hope they go to a 30.9 or 31.6 size seat post. 27.2 is a little limiting. I will also post weight if I get the 2016.The dealer event is apparently this week. I would wait to pull the trigger if I were you.
You can atleast see what's coming and then make your decision.
My guess is slightly educated, but more 1x11 and more WC models.
Truthfully, it will probably not end up being an issue, as I don't plan on running a dropper, I just happen to have one already for 30.9 in case I there was a course that it would help me on. Sorry to highjack the thread.I'm curious, why would a larger seat post be better for the Epic? This is intended to be (and is) an excellent cross-country race machine, and slightly narrower seat posts are lighter, I think. The "intended use" of this bike does not contemplate a heavy dropper post.
Maybe it would make sense on the XL frame. For larger guys (6' 4" and above) the seat post on the Epic seems to be too long. It looks ridiculous. And I know one fellow who has warrantied two frames because they cracked due to normal use leverage at the long seat post. Regardless, changing the seat post diameter would require a frame re-design, so I'm not sure how likely it is.
That issue aside, I have to say the Epic is a pretty well-dialed bike right now.
