Classic Specialized Epic Carbon Frame Road Bike, circa '91
Nickname: "Iron Man" per my 6 yr old grandson, due to the color (burgundy/gold).
Carbon frame, lugged, aluminum dropouts. Has a Co Mo fork, at that time they couldn't make an economical and light CF fork strong enough. Full 105 SIS gruppo (down tube shifters.)
Still in great condition, no corrosion. All joints tight. Rides sweet, smooth and fast. Pretty clean, with a few cosmetic scratches. Original BG seat, pretty comfortable. Indexed down tube shifters work perfect despite all the years and miles. Dam, I wish this baby was 2 cm bigger. Alas, after many months and sweet miles, I'll be parting with it. Too small for me, couldn't make enough adjustments to fit it. After I rode this though, I was convinced carbon frame is the way to go.
