Well as a long time Cannondale guy I kind of felt like I was cheating on my girlfriend but after my first ride I can't imagine going back.

She's just in mock up form in the photo. Tune parts will shortly take over the build. Even the new Tune crank when they become available.
I haven't weighed it yet but I plan to when the build is complete.
Parts list as seen in photo:
2015 Epic (Med.) Blurple
World Cup w/ brain (I have fixed the stroke from the photo)
Roval SL 29 wheels
Enve sweep 700mm bar
XTR race brakes
Sram XX1 Shifter and RD
Next SL crank (tentatively runnint a 32 until the oval 34 is installed)
Ashima 160 rotors
Tune cage
Kalloy Uno Stealth Stem 110x-17
Specialized seat post
Specialized full carbon Toupe (90g's)
Fast Trak 2.2 front and 2.0 rear (What I had at the house)
ESI Chunky grips
CB Ti eggbeaters

Uh, it looks like your fork might be suffering some air seal problems in that picture.

It looks like you have 50mm of travel, if that.

Like I said above, I'm going to weigh it when the build is complete (when the Tune parts come in).

I don't like Specialized, but that one... wow! That colour reminds me of Klein.

Looking good so far! Should be one heck of a ride when finished. Please, please, please tell me those grips aren't staying :D

No. They aren't. That's just something I had at the house to use until the new parts come in. Black FitGrips are going to be on the final build.

Very nice :) Generally I'm not really a fan of the Epic's suspension design, but your bike looks great.

Get some other wheels too, and it'll be even greater (e.g., AX Lightness' wide XC clinchers with Tune Hubs to match the other Tune parts).

That looks great....(although in the spirit of weightweenies, how much weight did it add?)

It is a reference for an automobile.
