    What say you? Another VS

    I am looking for a new ride. I want a XC hard-tail and think I have it narrowed down to the Niner Air 9RDO 3 star build or Canyon Exceed CL SL 8. Both are around the $4200.00 mark.

    I am coming from the roadie world and leaning toward a HT for easier maintenance. It seems the Canyon has a better group set on it.

    Any recommendations between the two or something else?

    I'm considering both bikes, too. I like that the niner is boost and, but the spec on the canyon is a bit better, though I prefer the step cast fork on the niner over the rockshox on the canyon. I'm waiting to see which bike gets updated first before I pull the trigger; my guess is that the exceed gets updated first as I think it's been since 2015 since it was updated and only 2016 for the niner.
