I am trying to compare a Yeti 575 to an Ellsworth Epiphany. I have a chance at getting either. I know the Epiphany costs more but which is the best bike?

  • Can't tell you which is best as I've not ridden the Epiphany but the 575 is a great all day epic trail bike. Mrs B has had one for a year. They're very light and although she has ridden DH trails on it I wouldn't commit it to them at pace. It's a trail bike and a bloody lovely one. In the same vein, I'd also consider the Ibis Mojo which is as light but climbs better IMO (it has the DW link, similar to a VPP design, where the yeti is faux bar link/ Single pivot)

    If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,

    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day

    The 575 to ride. The Ellsworth to have framed and hang on a wall.
