Has anyone ridden the 08 Yeti AS-R (alum) with the XT build kit and the 08 Epic Marathon (Alum)? Both have a similar spec and price point ($3,995 for the Epic and $3,699 for the Yeti. Both have around 4" of travel front and rear and both weigh approx 25 # with pedals. I am most interested in how each bike climbs as well as in overall suspension performance and handling. Thanks for your feedback. TB

They are both great bikes.

But Yeti is lighter. I don't think I'd trust the Spesh Shock either.....:)

Personally I would go for the Yeti, mostly because of the shady reliability of the Spesh Shock....
