    Canyon spectral 2021 changes

    I have been eyeing 7 and 9. For 2021 there seem to be some downgrades (with few upgrades?) and updates to components

    Spectral 5:
    Fork: Pike Select 160mm travel -> Pike Select 150mm travel
    Rear shock: SUPER DELUXE SELECT+ -> DELUXE SELECT+
    Rear tire: MAXXIS Aggressor 2.5" -> MAXXIS Dissector 2.4"
    Saddle: SDG Fly MTN -> Ergon SM10 Enduro Comp
    Color options: Stealth/Red (Black/Red) -> Stealth/Trail Teal(Black/Teal)

    Spectral 7:
    Fork: Pike Select 160mm travel -> Pike Select 150mm travel
    Rear shock: SUPER DELUXE SELECT+ -> DELUXE SELECT+
    Crank: Truvativ Descendant 7K 32T -> SRAM GX Eagle DUB 3T
    Brakes: SRAM Guide R -> SRAM G2 R
    Rear tire: MAXXIS Aggressor 2.5" -> MAXXIS Dissector 2.4"
    Stem and Handlebar: Race Face Aeffect -> Canyon G5
    Saddle: SDG Fly MTN -> Ergon SM10 Enduro Comp
    Color options: Stealth/Polar (Black/Teal) -> Stealth/Non Forest (Black/Beige)

    I am mostly happy except for Rear shock. I wish they had used Pike select+ instead of select on 7. I liked the old color.

    Spectral 9:
    Fork: Pike Ultimate 160mm travel -> Pike Ultimate 150mm travel
    Wheels: Reynolds TR 307 -> DT Swiss XMC 1501
    Rear tire: MAXXIS Aggressor 2.5" -> MAXXIS Dissector 2.4"
    Saddle: SDG Fly MTN -> Ergon SM10 Enduro Comp
    Seatpost: RockShox Reverb Stealth 1X -> OneUp Components V2

    Thoughts?
