You know what else doesn’t exist? ANY 2012 S-Works Epics. Specialized just isn’t making any more, and we just got rid of the last one available. In the country. Until 2013. Yup. We know.
But don’t worry, we’ve got the Epic Comp 29 (1/3 the price of the S-Works) in stock, in your size. Check out more info after the jump.
