    Canyon Strive vs YT Capra

    Hey everyone I'm looking to get my next enduro rig and I'm having a hard time choosing between these two bikes. I want to have a one bike to fit all needs but I know i'm going to have to make some compromises.

    I managed to snag one of the Capra AL LTD's but i'm worried about how it will climb when not on fire roads.

    And then for the Strive I'm worried that the shapeshifter will require too much maintenance down the line but I really like the spec and it has really good reviews for pretty much any terrain.

    What would you guys pick?

    here are the links to the bikes i'm looking at.

    I looked at both when I was shopping for a new bike. Reading between the lines on the Capra kinds of indicates that it doesn't really climb that well. I ended up ordering a strive 8.0 which seemed to be the best value in the range. I wont get it for a couple more days though so I don't have any first hand info.

    I just got my Strive 8.0 and I'm loving it. I was looking more at the Jeffsy than the Capra but Canyon pulled me in with the component package regardless. The shapeshifter is pretty simple and if it fails it fails in the aggressive mode and I can confirm that climbs decently.

    Did you ever end up making a decision? Just curious how it turned out for you.
