Saw a '89 Epic on Marktplaats for sale. Seller wanted €50 for it. It wasn't nearby, so I had to find someone who could pick it up for me! Luckely there are some good guys on the Dutch forum! Hans just picked it up for me and will send it to me in January! Can't wait! :P
Needs another stem, shifters and tires. All the rest is original according to Hans. We will see!

Here is the pic from the seller!

Are you sure about the year? The paint scheme says 1989, but the U-brake beneath the chain stays are indicating 1988 iirc.

And were there Epic MTBs before 1990?

Yep! Pretty sure! http://mombat.org/Specialized_Specs.htm

The Epic's weren't in the '89 cataloge, but could be ordered on special delivery!

It's a mix of XT and DX! All XT except for rear mech, pedals, hubs and crank. Those are DX. Will replace them with XT once it arrives!

Nice find Bart!

Another one to send my way...?!

Definitely an '89 model too by the way, although be careful using mombat as a 'bible' for referencing - I have found plenty of inaccuracies and assumptions on there that serve only to spread errors...

Cheers,
BB.
