Hi

I´m from Caneças - Portugal, and i´m planning to buy a new frame and fork.
I actually own an 04 S-works Epic with a Fox F100X fork.
My first choice would be the new carbon epic frame, but I think that 3.000,00 Euro for a frame is too much.
My other choice is the 06 S-works Stumpjumper FSR 120 frame with the Fox Talas XTT.
Can you guys give me your opinion.

Thanks

Paulo

First of all, you're looking at two different bikes. If you have an 04 Epic, why not go for the regular epic? 06 aluminum is definitely more refined than 04.

Do you officially race on regular basis? (frequently?) If so, Carbon Epic I think is worth it, if you have the money.

If not, don't spend that much, unless you're one of those "i gotta have the best of the best" type of person.
