I was hoping to get it under 25 lbs., but alas the cost is too much.

Better for racing than my Enduro SL which sits at exactly 31 lbs., before the Command Post gets put on even...

are you sure? Those may be carbon rims.....

And you know as well as I do - it's only as fast as the motor.

Does the EVO have more travel than the regular epic? I rode the EVO enduro and I think it had .5" more or somthing like that and a slightly slacker head angle than the regular enduro.

3.9" front and rear. With this model Epic, they just spec'd burlier parts on the EVO version. This model came with a Command Post which I am putting on my Enduro SL.
