    Spec on the 7.0 looks to be significantly better, shimano brakes, fox performance elite fork which has a decent damper, more reliable pedals, etc. The 6.0 looks ok, but I'd expect more trouble from those parts in the long run and I might switch some of them out, the 7.0 would be the more complete machine that I'd be looking for.

    The 7.0 gives a better fork with Boost 15x110 hub and room for wider tires. Plus the wheel hubs use ratchets instead of the pawl hubs on the 6.0. The bike weighs 0.4kg less too. It would be beneficial if it had a Boost 148 rear and space for 2.6 or at least 2.4 tires. But no info. Ask about that and if a change is coming for the 2019 model. 2019 Scott Spark models except the top end race bikes come with wide rims and 2.6 tires front and rear.

    So, is best option the 7.0 than 6.0?. XT @ 11S is best than NX @ 12S? .

    Overall the 7 is the better performing bike. It would be nice to have GX 12s but I'd be happy with 11s XT to get the much better fork and wheels. But check into a 2019 Scott Spark 920. And make Canyon tell you whether the rear hub is 142 or 148. It should have been in their specs.

    Another option is to buy the 7.0 and when the group is worn out, put a GX or a XT of 12S .
