Well never have I ever consider an Santa Cruz till I seen picture of the new Blur LT2. Im still unsure which bike as Im not the agressive rider I once was. My choices are between the Ellsworth Epiphany, Santa Cruz Blur LT2, or the Yetti 575. Now for more agressive riding it may be the Santa Cruz Nomad or the Ellsworth Moment. I would like to know what other riders out there who ridden these bikes & which one did they chose & why? I waiting till later this spring but as of right now I leaning towards the Epiphany. Right around 4 grand is all I plan on spending as Im sure this will get me my dream bike. I know this is an Santa Cruz board but all honesty I need to know where my hard earned money should go when it comes to one of these bikes listed. No Im not trolling here either so don't go there as I just want to have a bike that I will feel good about spending my hard earned dollars on.
