    Epic vs Stumpjumper

    Hereís my dilemma:
    I can get a 07 stumpjumper for $2100
    Or I can get an 06 epic for $2100 (tag says itís usually $2800)

    I ride something between XC and All mountain. Would the epic be able to handle all mountain? It seems like I would be getting a great deal, but is it a great deal on the wrong bike for me?

    Is the brain shock good? I have no experience with it. Does it work really well or is it just another thing that could break?

    If you want to do all-mountain get the Stumpjumper FSR. The Epic is Specialized racing full suspension. The geometry of the Epic is meant to be nimble and agile while the Stumpy FSR has relax angles and higher bottom bracket. The brain is not meant for all mountain 3-4 foot jumps.
