- Canyon spectral 9.9 vs stumpy evo c
Has anyone got or ridden a Canyon Spectral ex 9.9.Posted 4 years ago
I’m after a new bike in the 29 variety and have ridden a couple of demos
the latest being a Stumpy 29 evo carbon next Sunday from Biketreks in Ambleside.
I know the canyons much better value for money, significantly cheaper than the Specialized, but just
wonder how it’s rides in comparison.
Obviously I can’t demo a canyon.
Anyone out there got one and what do you think.
And if you live anywhere near Ambleside, do you fancy a ride on Sunday ?
Little steeper HA on the Canyon, slightly lower (boarderline too low!) BB on the Specialized, everything else really close. The Canyon has a 32 which is a pile of crap but everything else is great. The Stumpy frame is lovely and it has a Pike but there is also a load of guff on it.
I bet the suspension is a little more supple on the Stumpy. Still, tough call.Posted 4 years ago
No I probably posted it twice being slightly computer illiterate.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve also tested a Whyte T-129 which was awesome but the colour scheme didn’t grab me at all.
Last week I ride a 5 29er which was very fast but I’m not a fan of oranges
rear suspension design / feel.
The canyon I’m looking at has a Fox 34 on the front. I’m sure the pikes are better but I’m not
buying a bike just based on the forkstrustySubscriber
ejaskew – Rear brake vibration here on a Stumpy Evo 29er. Dirt and MBR mentioned it in the last mags, but only on the large frames it appears as the MBR review of the medium doesn’t mention it. Mine is a large as well… changed rotors and pads which helped, but it’s still there.Posted 4 years agohonourablegeorgeMember

Avid brakes, by any chance?Posted 4 years ago
