    Spearfish 2 Vs 3

    I've found a good deal on a 2015 Spearfish 3 and a great deal on a 2014 Spearfish 2. The 2 would require quite a drive and even though it is only a little more money I don't think it would be worth it. There seems to be just small upgrades, but on the other hand upgrades almost everywhere. But my main problem with the 2 is it comes with avid elixir 5 brakes and they seem like nothing but trouble.

    What do you Spearfish riders think?

    In my opinion, the advantages the 2 has over the 3 are:

    - 1lb lighter
    - Tubeless ready
    - Rear shock with boost valve
    - slightly better drive train

    The elixir 5's are so-so, but I think the other advantages outweigh the brakes and you can pickup a set of deore or slx brakes for fairly cheap especially if you sell the elixirs...
