    The Moment is heavier and has upto 6" of travel. The Epi is lighter and has steeper angles.
    "[SIZE="3"][SIZE="2"]but I do not see anything in the world of suspension methods that is superior to the 4 Bar.

    IMO, intended purpose is the big difference btwn. these frames. The Epi seems like a long-legged XC bike. The Moment is more all mtn. and will take more abuse.

    Same frame geometry. The Epiphany uses a thinner wall tubing to shed weight and uses a magnesium rocker in the back for the same reason. and yes then the 5.25" vs 6" rear travel.

    very different rides

    Along with the comments above, search my earlier postings on the ride differences with various shocks. I had both bikes all of last year. I'm sticking with the Moment with a DHXair.
    But the bottom line is to chose the bike and setup for what and where you ride.
