    Canyon Lux vs Scott Spark

    Hi, does anyone have experience with both bikes and willing to shed their insight for xc/marathon training? Thanks!

    I've never seen a Lux, but the one thing I've learned about Canyon is watch the weight. I've ridden the Spark and really liked it for an XC bike.

    The current Lux still has the old 142 rear hub spacing whereas the Spark has the new standard Boost (148) spacing. Some of the newer wheelsets don't even come with the old 142 spacing anymore.

    Just what I said watch the weight of the canyon bikes. They are not the lightest bikes on the market. If you are XC racing, it does matter. My current bike is a Cannondale Scalpel 2 and it comes in at 23lbs. That is with pedals. I'm selling it in a few months because I want something more all mountain-ish.

    My missus has a 2017 LUX 7, great value bike, hers comes in at 11.5kgs with a dropper & pedals, it is the small size.
    To say she loves it (possibly more than me) is an understatement

    This is a big deal. It really will limit the wheel sets you can use in the future.
