    Epic Expert Carbon Evo R 2011 (updated)

    Been looking at one of these in a 2011 model, moving from a Stumpy PRO Carbon(2009) never been happy with the saggy rear on it and always had an issue with the geomtetry when climbing seated or out of the seat.

    Having not ridden one I have an old epic works 2004 which I come back to a lot for my XC solo rides over my stumpy, anyone else riding the Epic Expert Carbon Evo R (2011 model) offer some opinions? Are you happy with it, or what have you changed? I was hoping this would be the freeride xc bike ive hoped for!

    Now what baffled me most was the following:


    Epic Expert EVO
    Forks RockShox Sid 120mm RLT
    Head angle low setting 69deg

    Epic Expert Carbon EVO R
    Forks Custom RockShox SID 100mm <---- only 100mm
    Head angle 70deg

    Now im deliberating a Carbon EVO R, thing is for a moment my ideal bike was this until i found out it was only 100mm on the front. What if i upgraded to 120mm what would i end up doing to the head angle with the extra travel /
