Just bought a 1989/1990? Epic (CRO MO lugs) with a U brake under the chainstays, anyone who can supply me with more info (Will pick it up on Monday, and will post pics later). The bike is partly blue (respray?) and probably bought as a Frame kit (no matching parts according to Firstflight specs...). All info appreciated :roll:

Voila this is it, the paint looks like it's original, the "hologram" on the carbon fibre is also blue-ish.Lugs are definate Cro-mo The parts mainly suck :?
But please hand me some info guys :!:
Think it's '89 (ultimate with cro-mo lugs, check on Firstflightbikes???)
http://www.firstflightbikes.com/specialized_specs.htm
Can't find a frame nr, any clue's :?:
Have a contempary Stumpjumper, so might swap the parts as the stumpy is too small for me anyway.
Will make better pics soon
