    2018 Neuron or Spectral?

    Hi. I am looking to purchase a bike and I am considering either the neuron or the Spectral. Please can somebody tell me what the main differences between these bikes are. I am looking for something that is going to be better at climbing and more cross country focused. I was originally considering a hardtail but decided to get a full suspension instead. Which out of the Spectral or Neuron would most resemble a hardtail?

    Neither.
    Have you considered a Canyon Lux?

    Neurons are 29er trail bikes with 120mm of travel.
    Spectrals are 650b trail bikes with 150mm of travel.

    The Lux is Canyon's XC bike with 100mm of travel.

    I'm generalizing, but I would place the Lux in the same category as trek's top fuel or Specialized's Epic.

    I'd love the Lux but it doesn't have boost spacing...
