Has anyone ridden / compared the 2014 camber expert carbon with the Evo version? Is the regular expert noticeably faster uphill and on the flats? Any other thoughts from riding both bikes?
I'm being influenced by the stellar reviews I've read for the Evo, but the regular expert might suit my style better. I'm relatively new to mountain biking, but have a strong road background. So I like to ride fast on flowy trails. And I ride in the Northwest with lots of hills.
Technical steeps are beyond my skill set right now, so generally avoid them. But my one test ride on a 29er had me riding with more confidence, and now I am motivated to upsize! So may end up riding more techy stuff in the future, or at least not bail when I see it.
The epic is also a possibility. Although, I don't race and think the camber might be a little better for the roots and rocks we have here and more stable downhill if I get into tricky terrain. But feel free to share your thoughts on the epic, too, as compared to the camber.
