I am looking to buy a full suspension but I am in two mind I love these 2 bikes Mondraker fory R or Canyon Strive AL 6 race but I am not sure which to go for. For info I am 6ft1 so the top tube length is longer on the Mondraker. Is anyone ride or has been riding these bike? Thanks

    Love My Mondy vote there.

    Canyons I've tried have been IMO mediocre bikes at best with really nice finishing kit... tending to be a bit short and uninspiring but I guess its all a matter of personal preference.

    Thanks I am more inclined to the Foxy since I can try it.

    Mondraker would be my choice. Superb frame although some of the components could be better for the price.
    I agree with Thewaylander, I have found the Canyon's I have tried to be rather bland to ride. Despite the excellent kit you get on them they just don't ride great.
