Burry “The Kid” Stander will always be remembered in the mountain bike world as a world-class competitor and wonderful person. He left this world far too soon, during a training ride on January 3, 2013. Burry never had the chance to see his new Epic World Cup in completion, but for 2014, Specialized released 150 of these Specialized Edition Bikes. In his memory, Specialized will donate up to $50,000 from the sales of the Specialized Edition Burry Stander Epic to Burry’s beloved charity, www.songo.info.
Just like Burry, this bike is all about going fast. With a single front chainring and the more aggressive geometry of the Epic World Cup frame, This bike is made for racing. The paint and graphics feature an African theme, while the South African flag and Stander’s personality are a permanent element of the design.
The great news is that we have one of these Specialized Edition Burry Stander bikes in stock! We are very excited to have been able to get a hold of one out of only 150 of these beauties.
