Powering your fitness goals matter. Motivation doesn’t happen by accident. Sure, warmer temps and the calling of seasonal races beckon us, but it is going for BIG that really gets the blood flowing. How BIG are you thinking this cycling season? “If your dreams don’t scare you they’re not big enough.” There is magic in thinking big: it moves us past limitations, sparks expansion, and delivers on new results. As cyclist, most are gunning for improvement so thinking BIG can serve us well.
How do you think big? At BikeParts.com we think of BIG in terms of bikes, bike parts, and epic rides. One of our favorite bikes, the Specialized EPIC, sets the standard for thinking BIG. It’s a powerhouse and because it’s a bona fide winner, you ride like a champ whether you are one or not.
Here is why you want it: A three-time XC World Championship winner, the EPIC was the first full-suspension XC bike to capture the coveted Rainbow Jersey. Available in both carbon fiber and alloy models, the Epic features Specialize’s proven 29er geometry, 100mm of FSR suspension, and is equipped with the unique Brain suspension which reads the terrain to provide the perfect ride—whether sprinting uphill or descending at speed on rocky trails. It offers unrivaled control, speed, and efficiency. We find one of its best features to be an all carbon wheelset. And….it’s hot!
Here is where you want to ride it: Epic rides are the ones that push the limits. They take a monumental effort to complete.
