    2010 vs 2011 epic rear end

    Anyone ridden both?

    I understand that there are a few changes--gearing, pivot locations, 10mm travel, etc. but what I really want to know is is the new hub and seat stay brace that much stiffer?

    I think I can live without the other changes, but really appreciate a solid rear end.


    edit: obviously refering to 29er

    I haven't ridden a 2011 but all the reports I've read say the 142+ rear end is significantly stiffer.

    I'm interested in hearing of those that have time on both too. Maybe we can get mtroy to chime in!
