I realize this is the Scott forum so I expect there to be a bias, but I'm wondering if anyone has compared these bikes head to head. There are several similarities, both are carbon XC style 29ers. I suspect the Epic's rear suspension is more sophisticated (the Brain), but the Scott has the TwinLoc which can adjust or even lock out the suspension. The Scott may be 1-2 pounds lighter off the shelf -- I'm not sure about this -- and I believe it's a bit less expensive compared to the Epic. I would appreciate any input re real world comparison. Thanks.
