    Those bikes are not even comparable. The Canyon is way nicer:

    Mastodon pro is better than Bluto.
    12 speed 1x vs 10 speed 2x.
    Adjustable chainstay
    Carbon vs Aluminum

    I'm in the US so we don't get front suspension from the factory. I have the Canyon 8 and added a Mastodon Pro. Love the bike with the factory JJ 4.0s. Just added Bud and Lou 4.8s and extended the rear. Looking for a first ride in this config.

    It was light until the Mastodon.

    The Canyon is a better spec but it's also a lot more expensive, unless you find one in the factory clearance offers.
    What a perfect waste of time

    Ok thanks, I see I am comparing two different price classes so what about canyon dude cf 8.0 trail and the Cube Nutrail...Are those similar, except the frame?

    No, one has a suspension fork and 2x10 gearing while the other has a rigid fork and 1x11 gearing. What's "best" is subjective. Only you can decide.

    What type of trails are you riding? Are you a trail shredder or comparatively new?

    I would say get a bike that fits and go ride, then figure out what you need based on your skills and local trails. There is no law that says the bike you buy is the last one you ever can get, or that you canít upgrade later.

    I ride a fully rigid fat bike and it is good. There are times front suspension would be good, but The simplicity and low cost is a plus because this is my only bike and I put a lot of single track miles on it. I do my own maintenance because I travel a lot for work and often fix it where I am. I can ride all my local trails and have a good time. Either way, get a bike and ride.
