Guys it's time to upgrade my bike from the rose granite chief to something new.

I've narrowed it down to two bikes

The yt jeffsy and the canyon spectral.

What are your guys thoughts ??
I'm leaning more towards the jeffsy I think ....
And do I look at the jeffsy 29er or stick with the 650b

I mostly so trial/single track sort of stuff

    Considering the hassle my friend has had with Canyon I'd steer clear. I've got a 29" Jeffsy CF Pro and love it, their customer service was very good aswell. All YT bikes are currently discounted :-)
  • The only problem is all the large frames are sold out and I had a email from yt saying they won't be bringing out anymore for 2017. So I'll have to wait for jan/feb for the 2018 versions

    I've been looking at Canyon recently and noticed they've got limited sizes of the Spectral and Strive models, the later especially.

    They've started adding 2018 bikes to the website in other models, so I would assume that the Spectral and Strive can't be too far away from having new bikes available.

    To be fair both are excellent bikes so it really only comes down to price and avaibility.
  • Thanks guys

    Canyons customer service is legendarily bad.
