    We the people ... 2008 Specialized Enduro SL Expert 26 vs 2011 Specialized Epic Comp 26

    Hey guys so Im looking into buying my first real full suspension mountain bike and am currently looking between these 2. I know three are both different style bikes which is why Im asking here. I do really like downhill but overall Id like something I can do a little bit of everything with. And even if I do get into downhill I dont think Ill do any crazy big jumps off the get go so itd be more light stuff. The 2008 enduro is a Large frame and I can get for $600. The 2011 Epic I can get for $625 and its a medium frame. Im 510.5 tall and from what I read online a large would suit me better however Ive ridden a large and they seem a little too big for my liking so can I get some thoughts/opinions?Thank you in advance!

    large frame will allow you to run a shorter stem ( a good thing). Im 511 and I always find a better fit on L specialized frames over medium
    i have no personal experience on an epic so YMMV
