Like I said in my other post, I am looking for a second bike (I have a 06 Epic Comp) for more all mountain riding (i.e. Auburn, Downieville, Mammoth, Tahoe) and for the occasional Super D race. I have eliminated the Commencal (I may regret not getting this sweet bike) and Giant from my list, due to lack of dealers (or good dealers with a supply of parts and accessories) where I live. With 5 Specialized dealers within 20 minutes drive, I can quickly test ride/get parts from these guys (besides Specialized make pretty decent bikes IMHO).
I have narrowed it down to 3 Specialized bikes: 07 Stumpy FSR Elite ($2499), 07 Stumpy FSR Expert w/ Brain Fade ($2999), or the 07 Enduro SL ($2499).
My questions are: Is the Brain Fade as important or necessary on the Stumpy as my Epic? Is it worth upgrading to the Expert from the Elite just for the Brain Fade? Or should I go with the new Enduro SL, which is a beefier version (with 6" of travel and dual crown forks) of the Stumpy, for Super D type racing and riding?
The Enduro SL is supposed to be about the same weight as the Stumpy FSR (28-29 lbs.).
