I guess it's the S-Works Epic with M5 tubing, because this is the only black anodized frame in the model line:

The submission is about a black anodized Epic S-Works FSR,
which is only available with M5 tubing.
The normal Epic with M4 tubing is painted in gloss black (or flo red).

Just saw your bike specs in your signature. Sounds pretty light.
Send me an email if you want to see your bike featured in our Light Weight Bikes section.

Merry Christmas to you and all other fellow Weight Weenies :D

It's fairly light... about 9,1-9,2 kg with a Rock Shox SID SL but at the moment I have a Rock Shox Judy XC (about 1900 grams) coz' my SID needs service!!! So the weight is about 9,6 kg.
Works great... just installed new X.0 shifters and an 9.0SL rear der. really smooooooth 8)

Claimed weight by Thomson is 252 g (if 30.9 mm is the correct diameter):
