So i am narrowing down by bike choice and have got to between two Canyons (cheap(er) hey) however not being able to try the bike i am not sure which one i should go for. I am used to a steepish head angle (69 degrees) so i figure the nerve will be the bike i am most used to. But i am tempted by the Spectral because i am wondering if a slacker head angle and slightly shorter top tube will be more fun.
Can i get some opinions? What will the cons be of the Spectral, will it be hideous going up hill and on tight twisty? Does it make a big difference on decents? Can both bikes be classed as all day riding bikes?
I ride in the Forest of Dean mostly and am generally quite chicken about steep downhills, have never had full susser before
