Hi
About to buy a new bike and not sure if it will be an Epic Expert(not the EVO version) or the s-works. I have heard about some Brain mishaps, but thats all I have heard.

Any experience with the Expert? are the Roval wheelset okay? The Brain fork? Is it worth the extra money to go S-Works?
best regards

You can google every model and brand of something and will have find reported problems. I just received the EXPERT, about 200km on it.. Everything looks and works fine to me so far. Roval wheels are quite stiff, in a good way !Brain fork seems toned down from previous version and I have set near the middle to firm.

I just added a carbon bar and will add an SWorks or PRO Phenom saddle, but I had it at 22.9 pounds (I'll double check) with cage and tool.

I think the S-WORKS is worth the extra especially if your looking to keep it a long time as it won't need little upgrades and it's got the best wheelset brakes etc. Brain is a great system all around!
