I'm trying to find what kind of brand/year my bike is so I can find more information about it. It might help me determine if I should buy a new bike or just wait. The only information I got now is this: Epic Comp Specialized, but I don't know the year and so onepic comp specialized (but I still need the year and so on

  • Why should the year effect your decision when to buy a new bike? The component level is the component level. The condition of the bike is the condition of the bike. It could be a 6 year old bike in pristine condition and a trashed out bike 6 month old bike. Looks like a nice bike. Any components, sizing, or geometry you are not happy with? Any known defect(s)?

    Then ASK that. You state "I have" like you own it. And the answer is base it on the condition and components and not age. On a blue book just base it on latest year with those components.

    The title of this question made it sound like it was a general-purpose "How do I identify a bike?" question, and it's had more than 20,000 hits from people who presumably expected just that. I've edited the title to match the actual question; hopefully, there will be fewer disappointed visitors in future. Commented Jun 19, 2019 at 17:35

The nice people at specialized.com have a archive section with pictures of all the models produced since 2008. Go to the web site and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There's a Support section with Bike Archive as the last item.

Answer shamelessly stolen from here.


Likely to be the 2011 model. Both the 2010 and 2012 have significantly different front triangles.
