    New question here. Canyon Spectral al 6.0 ex vs YT Jeffsy al Two 27.5

    Looking for my next bike, these two made it to the final round:

    YT Jeffsy al Two 27.5

    Canyon Spectral al 6.0 ex


    My riding style usually involves rough-techy singletracks, some jumps & drops, and some XC.

    Both bikes costs pretty much the same, and have quite similar specs with the Canyon's slightly better (wheels, rear shock).

    The Canyon is almost 2 kg lighter and has less 10mm in rear travel.
    To my eyes the YT looks a lot nicer

    Which would you choose? any experience on either of them? would you recommend any other bikes in this price point?

    Thanks a lot!

    Both are seriously nice bikes.. If you look at the specs there really is VERY LITTLE difference between the two (both have nice DT Swiss rims and both are pawl systems, not ratchet).

    Only real difference I can see that might make or break the deal is that the Jeffsy comes with an 150mm RS Reverb Stealth on the M/L/XL sizes where as the Canyon only states a 125mm RS Reverb Stealth.

    Other bikes is really going to depend on where you are located and how quickly you want the bike. If you are in the US, I dont believe the Jeffsy 27.5 is available until September and Canyon isn't supposed to start selling in the US until August, and I think at that point it is only pre-sales?..
