a while ago you were talking about building up around an epx frame? How did it go? How does it perform?
I'm thinking about buying one that's sitting @ the lbs.
It's built.MXL02

So far I've only ridden it on the rollers. Still trying to get it set up correctly. So far very light and silky ride. Will take it for it's maiden REAL voyage this weekend. Report and photos to follow on monday....
Good to hear!jeph

I was wondering about your EPX too. Did you weigh the frame before you put it together? Their website doesn't mention a word about weight. How's the overall fit and finish of the frame? I haven't seen one in person - just curious. They look like a heckuva good deal, thinking about buying one myself. Look forward to the ride report.

I emailed a rep with an address I found on the epx website. My question went as follows...
How much does the frame and/or frame fork combo weigh?
His answer: "it weighs about 3 pounds"
HUH? what "it" is he referring to and what does "about 3 pounds" actually mean. I was a little bit unimpressed with the response as a whole. I asked a bunch of questions and got vague answers if any. I ended my e-mail with... "I have to admit I'm a little hesitant to buy a bike with no reputation, good or bad" so you think he might have been a little more willing to ease my mind.
Anyway a good report from mxl02 might be all i need to go ahead.
