...Well then they sure as hell won't recommend (and WARRANTY) them on an Epi. Are you nuts? What the hell kind of XC do you ride?!natemirus said:
If the question were what is the burliest available 6 inch travel ICT Ellsworth, but my Moment has a front 8 inch rotor and I don't think it's too much for the bike. I've got a 6 inch in the back and it works fine, but a 7 inch in the back might balance the front a little better.SCUBAPRO said:Actually, the Rogue may be more appropriate.
5Spot?! The geometry of the Epiphany is closer to the Id than the Spot. 70 degree HA, 73.5 SA 14+" BB....How can it be like a 5Spot?Jayem said:Percusick directly compared it with a 5 spot.
You should put any components and parts that you'd put on a 5 spot on the epiphany, and you should also use it like a 5 spot.
Well, it's always better to ask for forgiveness than permission.natemirus said:
Extra weight? Like 5 pounds, heck maybe 10? C'mon. Brakes stop the bike AND the rider. For me gaining 5 pounds in bike weight (I'm 210, bike 35) would be a 2% increase in total weight. Not going to change my braking requirements.chad1433 said:Honestly, I think the 203mm I ran on my Isis was overkill. In some instances, it slowed me down too much, like going thru rock gardens and such. Only on long DH runs did I wish for a bigger rotor. But now, on my Moment, it's almost a requisite because of its extra weight.
