    What should I buy - Norco sight or canyon Spectral?

    What made you come to the conclusion that the Norco AL models we ahead of the Spectral ALs? The top Spec AL Spectral (AL6 $3649) is priced similarly to the entry level Sight (A3 $3600) and the components on the A3 are definitely lower than AL6. To be fair, Canyon charges $200 for delivery so...
