    Sounds like you've made up your mind already, and I can't think of anything mind-blowing to sway you to the EVO.

    The Elite has the nice XTR RD, and once you get it setup correctly the brain in the rear is handy. You also get a fair number of additional component upgrades.

    Maybe someone else will have a reason to question the Elite choice.

    thanks, I was more scared because of different stories abut problems with brain- expensive to service, not reliable etc.
    This will be my fors full suspension bike but I hope will make me very happy and brain will work fine for me:-)

    decided fro Elite:-)

    Looks like my response is a little late, but here it is for what it's worth. I have the 2014 Elite, which is almost identical except it has a Fox 34 fork rather than a Pike. I picked it over the Evo, because of the better components. The brain has worked just fine, but yes, it is more expensive to service. No bike shop (at least near me) can service a Brain shock. It has to be sent in to Specialized, which is more expensive and takes about a week. Other than that, I have been enjoying my Stumpy FSR Elite for a year and half now without any complaints.

    Brain service from Spesh is part of the deal - has to be factored in.

    I have a 2014 Stumpy FSR Elite also. Bought new two months ago and now have over 100 trail miles on it.
    I like this bike far more than I ever thought I would. Brain works as advertised.
    Haven't ridden my Giant Reign yet this year.

    I have had my '13 Elite for a year and a half. Have currently have 900 miles on it and am still lovin' it. I had the rear brain shock and the front fork serviced by Fox in January and just put a set of Flow wheels and Hadley hubs, XT cassette, SRAM Centerline rotors, Maxxis tires, and a KMC chain on it. I was not wild about the gold when I bought it, but it is growing on me so I got my new hubs in gold.

    And yes, the chain does now go through the guide. I had had a few too many bourbons before I installed it and took this pic. Ohh yeah the chain is gold as well.
