In love with gloss abalone Epic Pro. MSRP, please? ;)

What are the prices for EVO Comp and Expert?
It seems that the prices are going up between 10 to 25%, but the component specs are getting better compared to previous models as well.

EVO Expert or Pro is looking so good. Just as was narrowing things down to the Top Fuel. Ugh, so many options for a 120mm ripper!

Err not for me. I want two bottles and the option to run a lockout in the future. This is a winner for me.

They were released last year, if I remember correctly.

Looks pretty sweet. I sure wish they would fix the consistent Brain issues us 2019 guys have suffered. I've replace my Brain twice in 350 miles. Others I know with the S-Works Epic of the same generation have also had multiple failures of the damping system.

This new Epic looks pretty sweet. One review I read said the inertia valve opening isn't very noticeable compared to the previous generations. It doesn't really bother me, but that would be pretty cool to have it feel less obvious. When it isn't broken, my 2019 S-Works is a pretty sweet bike. Very fast.

A seal in the Brain damping system keeps failing. You hear an audible squish as fluid fills your shock and then the shock eventually stops working. A know a handful of other riders with the same generation Epic. Multiple warranty replacements for them as well.

The Epic Evo looks very cool. 200g lighter than the Brain equiped Epic with 110mm travel, able to carry 2 bottles & running a conventional shock sounds like a winning combo. Finally an Epic frame without a Brain shock!

Also, I want to applaud Specialized for introducing some very cool colors. I was definitely getting tired of black/white. That red color looks amazing. And I love the mint green color on my 2019.

I rode my Epic Evo Comp for the first time last weekend, its a blast. My first mountain bike in a few years, first FS ever. Can't wait to get back out on it. I have a feeling its going to take away from my road riding quite a bit.
