Canyon, Commencal or Nukeproof

First time post here, and am in need of some advice. I am in the fortunate position where I have a decent budget to buy a very decently specced Enduro focused MTB.

For a long time now I've had my eye on the Canyon Strive CF 9.0 team, but have seen both the Commencal Meta AM team 29 and the new 2019 Nukeproof Mega 275 C RS.

I just wanted to ask for some opinions on which one offers the best bang for its buck (around £4,500) and whether anyone had positive/negative experiences with any of the above manufacturers?

In terms of riding, this will largely be used daily for commute purposes in the week and then up at the local trails in chicksands, Bedfordshire at weekends.

    Can you post links to the bikes, please?
    Most people don't memorise bike specs.

    Sure thing. They are below (the Nukeproof i was looking at was in fact the factory version, not the race series (RS)

    They are probably all a bit overspecced for a commuter bike unless you’ve got a seriously gnarly commute. :D

    My personal preference would be on the commercal or strive as I prefer a SRAM drivetrain. My instinct says the strive as I’ve heard great things.

    Ultimately, they are all going to be a weapon on the trails.

    Enjoy!
