    2018 Spectral 5.0 or Neuron 2019

    Hello everyone , I am in a bit of pickle. Wanna buy my first FS bike and I love canyons plus they are on sale. For my type of riding it seems like Neuron is better. I bike mostly in woods, more uphill, cardio workouts, light trails, in city Problem is that there are no Neurons on sale for my size(S) but there is spectral 5.0 which AFAIK is really good climber but its more on downhill side and its def overkill for my careful ride, although I guess its generally bit safer even for slower rides.

    Should I wait for next year neuron or get Spectral on discount so I would probably get bike with better parts? I have no idea if Neuron geometry and lower weight or Spectral parts will be more beneficial to me, plus we don't know how next year Neuron will look like. Both are great bikes.

    Btw just to be clear given that I would be buying Neuron in full price I would be buying Neuron in full price I would pay same for next year 6.0 as I would pay for 5.0 spectral if prices remain the same.

    Ask Canyon Tech Support if the 2019 Neuron will be Boost 148 rear hub and 15x110 Boost front hub and fork. This will give you the ability to run 2.6 tires, most likely. I'd wait for that. Look at the 2019 Scott Sparks for a comparison.
