- Which XC racing mtb out of these two?
Hi guys, out of these two bikes for XC racing next year, which one do you think i should go for :-)?
The weight is a big factor and the 26r wins here and the spec is also very nice!

It is difficult to recommend a bike with such little info on your preferences, personally if i were buying a new bike to race on there is no way i’d buy a 26er, the extra weight will feel nothing by the benefits gained with the bigger wheels, but its the age old argument….Personally i think the canyon’s look great for the money, the carbon version in particularPosted 5 years ago
Well, i bought a Cube Reaction GTC SL 29r earlier this year for racing and have just sold my Giant Trance X2 which i never used really.Posted 5 years ago
I now have some cash in me pocket and was thinking about either training on my Cube and buying a slightly better bike for racing on or buying a cheaper bike and training on that whilst i race on my Cube. 🙂seftonSubscriber
yup all my bikes have 0x gripshifts!
cheap, very light, easy to trim, never go wrong, can dump loads of gears in one turn.
my new xc race ht will be 3×9 with 0x gripshifts. I’m going deore braking too (also well regarded for racing)
dont race what you cant replace – you thrash race bikes and things get broken!Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Why would you train and race on different bikes?
I can see the appeal of a fresh bike, but you could get that with a spare set of wheels (with matching unworn chain to go with the cassette), and being a bit more regular with the gear cable changes and fork lowers services. With the added bonus that your training bike would be tip top too!Posted 5 years ago
