Finally got around to "XC-Pro-ing" my Epic (carbon tubes, steel lugs). Still have to replace headset with GG Suntour XC Pro and put a proper front brake cable hanger but pretty much "there".

I'll add a few. Only one is technically an "Epic" but they all fit the genre IMO.

Sorry to rehash a old thread but I'm doing some research. The Epic at the top of the page with the logo Specialized on the top and down tubes. What year is this frame and any other info. Help appreciated.

It seems there were two versions (or a graphics change as the year progressed).

1990 had the straight chain stays, red script.
Best I can tell, early 1991 had the 'S' bend chain stays, yellow script with 'Stumpjumper' written out.
At some point in 1991, that changed to the block 'SPECIALIZED' at all points on the frame. I've seen variations of this with and without the Ned Overend 1990 World Champ decal.
