Long time ago since I posted one of my builds in here, so thought I would show my latest.
It's a 2012 Specialize Epic Evo R which I have built up from the bare frame.
This particular frame was stolen (when it was still a complete bike) in a major theft at several stores around Denmark. It was recovered disasembled and the insurance auctioned off the frame. I bought it since I've always wanted wanted an 2012 Evo R (love the paintscheme), and I have been working on building it up as I want it.

It doesen't really belong here, as I am not so concerned about the weight, but I am pretty proud and really fond of it, so thought I would share some pictures with you guys.

Buildlist:
Frame: Specialized Epic Evo R - size L
Fork: Rock Shox Sid Brain
Brakes: Avid XX World Cup
Rotors: Shimano XTR RT-97 Ø160
Tyres:
Dry: Specialized Fast Track Control 29*2.2
Mud: Schwalbe Nobby Nick 2.25
Wheelset: Enve 29 XC 32H rims on XTR M985(front) and M988(rear) hubs and DT Swiss spokes
Triggers: XTR M-980
FD: Sram X.0
RD: XTR M-980
Crankset: Specialized S-Works - Sram XX spyder - Sram X.0 39/26 klinger
Casette: XT M-771 11-36
Chain: KMC X10
Handlebar: Specialized S-Works Prowess Carbon 680mm
Stem: Specialized S-Works CLP 110mm
Saddle: Specialized Phenom Pro 143mm
Seatpost: New Ultimate Evo 30,9/410
Barends: Specialized S-Works Overendz Carbon
Grips: KCNC Eva
Cables: Jagwire
Pedals: Crankbrothers Eggbeater 4Ti

Weight with Specialized tyres: 11.15kg

The goal is to get it down to 10kg total, but I don't think it will get much below 10,5 as I do not wish to compromise the use of the bike to save the last bit of weight.

Plans for future upgrades include:
- Eclipse tubes (-200g)
- S-Works SL stem (-50g)
- Rotor Q-Rings
- XX or XTR casette (-150g)
- KMC X10 SL kæde (-~20g)
- Tune rear axle (-~10g)
- Carbon seatpostclamp (-~10g)
- XTR RT-98 rotors or adaptors and a set of New Ultimate rotors
- Schwalbe Rocket Ron DD (as soon as Schwalbe puts then in to production...)
- Complet alu/titan boltkit all-round (- 30-50g)
- Possible 1x10 convertion for summeruse (- 200-300g)
(- and shorter cables -20g)

CarlP: great choise ;) I would love to get out on mine again this year, but it's starting to get really cold and muddy around Scandinavia, so I may save it till spring and build a winter mtb instead.

I had a set of Avid from an Epic Comp alloy on previously, but I got a good offer on the XX WC brakes, so got those instead. They were cheaper and IMO better looking than XTR brakes, so that is why I didn't get a set of those.
