Hardtail MTB Choice

New bike time :grin:

I fancy a Carbon hardtail and have narrowed the choice down to either Cannondale FSI or a Canyon Exceed.

Obviously they are light and fast but has anyone had experience of both and can comment on the vertical compliance. (comfort)

What made you narrow it down to those?

Nothing really scientific…

FSI -always wanted a lefty since they arrived 20yrs ago as they look like voodoo.
Exceed - currently have another Canyon and it’s been awesome.

Have test risen the FSI and was impressed, not ridden the Exceed (have also test rode a few others but were way too harsh)

Can’t comment on those BUT I love my Scott Scale.


Also can’t comment on those, but have a Felt Nine 1. She goes.
