I'd go with the Canyon by a mile, great spec for the money, it's also a tad lighter and looks much more fetching! 8)
Very funny Scotty, now beam me down my clothes.

thanx 4 quick reply and interests, thanx 4 putting links up too 'eyesinthesky'... need to hear your input supersonic! (Because it will be useful)... Looking at these models because~ my old spesh hardrock in 15.5 got less gears and travel forks, cause of size, there the only things wrong with good bike, now handed down... i'm open to other recommendations, but still want full range of gears and good travel in size small...

Not much in the specs - though I prefer the Shimano kit on the Canyon.

thanx sonic! Was thinking same thing, + the canyon comes in XS 15inch, which good for my tiny build, 100mm of travel should be ok too? There's no chance of test ride, and with more ppl interested with this model, can you guys ride and review it for us???
