Specialized Eipc


Within 24 hours of purchase Nik went off the road into a concrete block, breaking his frame and his hand.

This frame is a 15yo collectors item, no wonder it broke!

Bummer to hear about the broken hand.

I have to say though that it was not wise to buy that old of a carbon bonded alum frame and actually think it safe to ride everyday. That frame is from the early days of bonding. Other frames at the time include the Giant Cadex Carbon and similar Vitus frames.

"Ive a few of Treks early bonded dealies from the early 90s and they are super tuff!"... That is for now they are. I would say time to retire them bikes. Nothing has happened... yet.
