It originally had a Rockshox coil spring fork at 100mm and I swapped this out with a Rockshox SID 120mm Dual air. This was professionally fitted by Worcester Cycles from whom I bought the bike originally.

Schwalbe Nobby Nic Evo Snakeskin 29 x 2.25 pair RRP£120. Raceface NEXT 35 carbon riser handlebars£110. Currently running tubeless, but have provided inner tubes to convert back. A very reluctant sale: i dont get time to ride the bike due to a demanding job, even more demanding wife and 2 little rugrats.
Specialized epic carbon fibre medium sized frame with carbon main frame and alloy rear swing arm. The bike has some cosmetic markings expected of a bike of this age but in good condition, rides perfectly (discs and pads have plenty of life left, all bearings smooth, wheels are straight and true, no cracks or dents).
Frame Size: Large 19". The end result is a bike the looks superb and has been tastefully upgraded in the spec department with period upgrades such as the Rolf Wheels, Judy XLC forks and Raceface cranks.
Do not confuse this bike with the current rockhopper comps as my bike has a far superior specification. The frame on this bike is made out of M4 aluminium which is the same frame on the specialized fuse bikes.
Used Specialized FSR XC Comp. Medium size frame (17.5").27 speed Brakes are minimal mileage Shimano BL/BR M-575 Forks are RockShox Tora 302. Front rim is a 36 spoke mavic 521 with a Hope hub. Rear shock is a fully working Fox Triad.
This gives you more floatation (cushioning) which acts as extra suspension. This is why 6Fatties are much smoother than other hardtails on rough and tough terrain. Running at lower pressure further increases grip.
All gears working smoothly and b rakes are very effective. Always kept in garage when not in use and free of rust. Has the odd marks as you can see on the comprehensive photos I have taken in all angles.
