  1. I think the Spot is sitting about middle on each of the rigs mentioned. Tallboy is 120mm/130mm & the Epic Evo is 110/120. Although I have not tried the others yet, I do know that the Living Link leaf spring has some magic at play. It felt so dialed in on a variety of terrain, and it’s light!

    Something else to look at are the head tube angles:
    Tallboy: 65.7°
    Ryte 115: 67.4°
    Epic Evo: 66.5°

    All things equal, that will also play into their handling a bit on the downhill… and uphill. I never felt like I need anything slacker to have a proper rip though. You have you Spectral for that!
