    Epic Expert vs Scott Scale 30

    I am having a difficult time deciding on a new bike to replace my current Jamis HT. I have not had the chance to ride a modern FS. My previous FS experience was on a 2000 FSRXC, which was not a good race bike for me. Most of the trails I ride are dry and hardpacked fast singletrack, full of switchbacks, and I tend to climb out-of-the saddle. I ride 2 days a week and enter a few XC races a year.

    The carbon Scott would definitely give me what I've been missing out of my aluminum HT, a little bit of flex or "give". The epic reads to be a very capable FS XC bike. I am not too concerned with the weight difference, my biggest issues would be surreounded by climbing and tracking in turns.

    I've been through some of the HT vs FS threads on this forum, just looking for some additional feedback between the two bikes.

    Go with Scott they take care of their customers. If your just looking for a opinion of HT vs FS I would say go FS. A FS when set up properly will give you a smoother ride through the rough & climbing over roots N rocks a breeze. For the stand up & hammer just two words Lock Out.

    I'm going with the Epic. I spoke to some riders at a few LBS today. I've decided to start with a frame and build it with the components I want.

    Sounds like your on your way to a sweet bike. Post some porn up when you get the frame.
