Specialized Epic

Bought off Craigslist as a cheap way to see if I still liked mountain biking, after basically not touching a mountain bike in 10 years. It was a good bike - light and nimble - and I rode it a lot for a few years, but after a while the fit issues being too much of an issue to ignore. Just too small.
