    Worth upgrading to the epic Comp?

    I'm considering purchasing an 06 epic. Are the upgraded Comp components worth the money (increase of $600 over epic Disc)?

    Upgraded parts over the epic disc:
    ---------------------------------
    Shimano M-765 hydralic brakes (instead of avid BB-7 mechanical)
    Shimano M-760 XT hollowtech II cranks & BB (instead of Truvatic)
    Shimano M-952 XTR rear derailleur (instead of XT)

    same fork, same shock, same frame, same rims.

    The only difference is hydralic brakes as oposed to avid bb7's and xtr rear derailer as oposed to XT and a different crank.

    I say no except for the fact that the red color on the comp look so much beter then the white on the disc model.

    Ditto, except there is the option of black instead of white for the disc model.

    In a perfect world you could get black anodized throughout the line.

    So the change in cranks and BB don't really make a difference? Are they just a weight savings?
