    Canyon CF SL 6.9 vs CF SL 7.9

    Hi everyone,
    I would like to know your opinions on whether the difference in components is worth the price difference between these two bikes (400 euro):
    CF SL 6.9 (1799 euro): Canyon | Mountain Bike | Grand Canyon CF SL 29 6.9
    CF SL 7.9 (2199 euro): Canyon | Mountain Bike | Grand Canyon CF SL 29 7.9 S.E.

    The differences can be seen in the following screenshot.Canyon CF SL 6.9 vs CF SL 7.9-6.9-vs-7.9.jpg

    The 9.6 has a carbon frame especially engineered for compliance that the aluminum won't match.
    I would go 9.6 and upgrade as needed for the better riding bike.

    I would get the 6.9 and add a FIT damper cartridge upgrade for about $250/210 euro. I'm not a fan of Terralogic.
    Use the rest towards wide wheels and carbon bars, etc.
    I'd still go SF 9.6 with SID RCT3 damper upgrade($150) over this bike.
    If possible demo a 9.6-9.8 bike to get the frame compliance experience.
