Whether you're out on the race course or on a fast-paced ride with your buddies, Specialized's Epic Comp 29er excels whenever the action heats up. Its M5-aluminum frame descends and climbs superbly thanks to 100mm of Specialized's legendary Brain-controlled FSR suspension that delivers unparalleled pedal power and control.

I have had countless Specialized bikes for the family but my Personal bikes 06' Epic, 10' Epic and my newest 2013 EPIC Comp with Carbon Control wheels! Specialized just keeps getting better and better! Each one of my Epics has been problem free and just when you think you can't get better than this I am proven wrong! The autosag is great and the ride is even better. My New Years resolution this year was to become a better rider. At 48 I just did thanks to to the EPIC!
After the first 5 minutes I said "Wow" out loud to myself. By the end of that first ride (some 1.5 hours later) the smile was etched into my face. This bike is that good! It does everything amazing well and has no weaknesses at all. I rode an Enduro for the past 4 years and still have it. I recently purchased a 29 Stumpy hardtail and really like it, but wanted more rear end comfort. The Epic 29 is truely the best of both worlds. I love to climb and this bike works so well that you'd think a motor was attached. I also race motocross, so going downhill fast is something that comes very easily. The Epic handles the decents surprising well. The bottom-line is that this bike will make you a better rider if you so desire and makes training way more fun!
I picked up the Epic 29'er to upgrade from a 26" bike and wanted something with a good suspension design. Vertually no pedal bob when climbing and handles corners very well. For the money its a fairly light bike and fast. My only complaint is the roval wheelset. I've only had the bike for a few months and the rear wheel has broke twice. Cassette body once and now the axle bearings. For this price you think Specialized would give you descent wheels.
