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.

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)
