This Epic Evo is the perfect Missoula bike and has a full carbon frame and carbon Roval wheels. As it sits it’s 25.7 pounds. It is light and efficient and climbs like an XC race bike, but it has progressive geometry and a little extra suspension travel (120mm up front, 100mm in the back) so it descends like a trail bike. I bought it at the end of the season in 2019 and while I ride a lot, that riding is spread out over lots different bikes (road, cross, mountain, townie). This Epic Evo is mechanic-owned and has been impeccably maintained and upgraded regularly.

It comes with a side-loader bottle cage and the attached storage box for a tube and C02 cartridges.

Current highlights:

Brand new, never ridden:

Rotors, brake pads, chain, bottom bracket, tires and grips. (March 2024)

Major fork service including oil, seals and damper (March 2024)

Parts and labor from the above total over $1000 worth of work and replaces nearly everything subject to wear and tear.

Nearly New: chainring, rear hub bearings

Warranty rear shock replacement, July 2022. This was fortuitous, as the warranty on the shock was close to expiring and the existing shock was due for routine service anyway. No problems since.

Major drivetrain update in May 2023. I replaced the entire drivetrain with the electronic GX AXS, which is about a $600 upgrade and included a new shifter, rear derailleur and cassette.

I've got test ride pedals on it now, but you'll want to bring your own pedals for real rides. I have several different saddles as well.

$2800
