Guys, so close to buying a 2013 epic comp as first full suspension bike. I do triathlon through mid summer on a spesh shiv and love the thing-- very happy with spesh service so far.

I am very conflicted regarding the brain and the maint required to keep it. I keep going back to the anthem as my LBS has both giant and spesh. I don't care much about price diff, just looking to get a bike I can ride and update for many years.

Since I don't race, is it worth the headache to own the brain tech in epic or should I roll with the anthem x2?

Any advice from epic owners would be much appreciated.
