    Mountain Bike Action Epic Review

    In the mbaction of March, they did a review of the Epic S-Works.
    "74-degree seat angle seems a bit forward on the flats" What do they mean by the feel of the forward position. Is it a strech out position or your just sitting more over the front wheel.
    Can somebody explain that to me Thanks.

    I just bought a S-Works Epic, it's still in the box at my LBS. I should have it by the end of this week. Can't wait for the snow to melt.

    First off, mbaction sucks! Do not trust their reviews. To answer your question a 74 degree angle will put you closer to the handle bars than say a bike with a 70 degree seat tube. If you test rode the bike and liked the way it feels then I would not worry about those numbers. Nice bike, have fun!

    Curious it would feel that way considering the bike comes with a lay-back seatpost that's got to compensate for at least a couple degrees.

    I wonder if they really rode the bike.
