"The Viathon's value is far and away the best"
Viathon M.1 vs. Specialized Epic
"The dropper post makes a huge difference for getting the seat out of the way and helps you navigate technical sections of trail without having you crash or slow down. You can just go full-throttle into stuff...Comparing price, the Viathon is way ahead in this field. At $3,000 less than the Epic, you can take a week or two off work, fly somewhere warm, have your own training camp, a vacation, whatever"
