    Hello EPX owners!

    No doubt everyone has been wondering about EPX and the EPXBikes.com website. I'm unsure of the details, but the short of it is that our EPX bikes are now even rarer collectables! Evan now runs his own specialist bike shop Cyclic Bicycles in Melbourne and as far as I'm aware, EPMB - the mother company of EPX in Malaysia no longer has anything to do with manufacturing the frames or any other parts.

    I myself have been running the EPX website in various guises for many years now and am also an EPX owner. There are around 150 members of the forum at the time of writing and so my plans are to keep the website up and running, albeit without any of the retail and support content - as this no longer exists.

    I'll be sending this out in an email to all members and I'd like to hear from anyone who would like to comment, what you'd like to see on the site.

    At this point, the forum will of course remain running. I'm considering adding a forum for parts so that people can hook up with any sources, or even get together and have the odd piece made up from scratch - I know my Speedster frame already needs the plastic/rubber bump-stop replaced.

    I will likely also add a gallery page where I'll post any photos and other information I still have about EPX.

    One tweak I've made already is to upgrade and reconfigure the forum editor so that Safari and Google Chrome can now be used for editing posts. I have also greatly increased the number of image attachments that can be added to posts.

    I'm all ears for further suggestions - please add comments to this post.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks Robert for the update, as I had been wondering...
    So are there no more part left in the bin, or is Evan still sitting on some bits and pieces? Will the next major part that breaks render the bike unusable for lack of a replacement? Will we have to employ specialist machine shops to turn out a 'one-off'?!?!?

     Hi Robert and Tony Edmonds, if you would like to contact Anthony Avidon in Johannesburg, he has a small stock of parts , including the plastic/rubber elastomer you are looking for Robert, and derailleur hangers for Terrasharks. He can be contacted on email avidon@iafrica.com. 

    He was the agent for EPX in South Africa, and supplied me various bits to build up my Terrashark.

    And regarding the EPX site here... it's been a bit of a downer. 150+ emails went out and just one reply. One odd thing is that there have been one or two new sign-ups every day for the last few weeks, but only one or two of them have actually posted anything. I'm fairly convinced it's a robot creating accounts in preparation for a pile of spamming, so I'm going to turn on captcha security to see if that has any affect.
