|Has anyone ridden one of these EPX carbon bikes? I've seen the adds on here and was curious about how good of ride they are. And what are the prices?

|I rode one briefly. Certainly not long enough to pass judgement... I did notice that the geometry simply did not work for me. Another thing that turned me off was that on the two occasions I tried to get in touch with someone at epx via email, They either didn't respond or took a really long time. |
There was a guy on here (MXL02?) who bought one and eventually gave a report...You might be able to find it...I remember that overall it wasn't too favourable.

|Below is a old post of mine about the EPX Carbon 303. It was around $800-$900 w/ Tiagra groupo and ITM posts, stem, bars and was sold as a complete bike:
From my research there will be the new model.
I now that have logged some miles on my EPX 303. I do like it more and more. First what I have changed. I did not like the shifting quaility compared to my s-works. I replaced all the cables, big improvement. I replaced the shifters and derailers to 105.....this is more a personal preference. The Tiagra stuff feels cheap and I had the 105's laying around. Syncros seat post, again laying around and cut a weight a little and it is black. I also changed wheelsets to Rolf vectors off my KHS steel bike. KHS is now a rain/beater bike. Finally I went to wider bars 46cm with a shorter drop.
Now that I have logged hundreds of miles on it.......
They run a tad small. If you are buying one online, get actual measurements. I have had zero problems with the bike and would purchase again......at the blow out/sale price. I am very happy for the small investment I made.
