2009 Epic S-Works

This is the prototype raced by Christoph Sauser to the stars and stripes jersey in Italy over the weekend. Reportedly the frame itself is 1.5 lbs lighter than prior years. This was achieved by making rear triangle carbon, moving pivot and shock and by specing a sub 3 lb fork. I hope the housebrand suspension has been figured out and is dialed in. I may have to sell everything I own to get one of these.

I believe that's 22.5lbs. Nice! The new lefty scalpel from Cannondale is about that and so is that new all carbon scott. Both are full suspension with the rear under the top tube. That seems to be the lightest way!

Thanks for coming Thursday night!
