XC bike choices for Epic?

I'm having difficulty deciding which XC bike to buy. I'm riding the Epic next year so I'm looking for a FS in the range of R22 000.

I have a Scott Spark 35 at the moment but after the third time it broke I decided to get something reliable.

Pity you are in Stellenbosch, there's a AMS Pro elixer 2010 stock clearing on the floor at Grant's for R20K, 18". Centurion

Buy a Morewood Zula frame and build it up with your old components and then replace the components bit by bit as the cash flow allows. I am loving the ride comfort the Zula gives. Oh yes it also climbs like a demon on steroids.

 

Morewodd all the way and as they say local is lekker.

I've settled for the 2011 Merida Ninety-Six 1200D. It will hopefully be here next week before the Marrick MTB Challenge.

Ventana El Rey 29'er dual-susser. I rode 2010 Epic on it and what a blast - but you'll need to spend a little more than R22k B) See you at the '11 Epic

29er was great (did the 2010), especially on the railway line...

will battle with the R22k, but Specialised Epic is about R30k

Giant Anthem 29er will be here in a few weeks, full xt bike is @ 29k i believe.

Sure you can find a little more crown, you probably have 2 more paydays before they are in stock

I must go with Tarmac-SL3 - the Ghost RT Lector 7400 is the best money can buy with full XT 10spd carbon Dual suss - XT wheels etc...!! Awesome bike and good looking as well!!!
