    Lightbulb Trek Emonda ALR5 vs Canyon Endurace AL 8.0 .. First Road Bike

    Hello Guys
    this is my first road bike and I currently have 2 options


    1 Canyon Endurace AL 8.0 = 1300 USD
    comes with Shimano Ultegra R8000


    2 Trek Emonda ALR5 2019 = 1660 USD
    comes with Shimano 105 R7000

    Both specs

    I have no experience with road bikes
    I want the bike to last me 5 years with no upgrades if possible
    Currently live in Qatar and bike prices here are astronomical

    shipping the Canyon will cost me about extra 400 USD
    and the Trek about 300 USD
    plus 5% tax


    I appreciate your help
    and if you have other opinions please share it
    sorry for my weak English
    Thank you very much

    Get the Canyon. It's a very good bike and it will cost you less. Your English is fine. Have fun.

    Both good bikes. The Canyon looks like a better buy. Better groupset and $300 less.

    I believe the Trek has a more agressive (lower) rider position, the Canyon a more upright position if that makes a difference.

    The Trek has a 50/34 crankset and 11-28T cassette. The Canyon has a 52/36 crankset, but doesn't say what the cassette gearing is. Looking up where you live, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the terrain is mostly flat, so you won't need low, low gearing.

    Nothing wrong with your English. I'm sure it's way better than my Arabic, LOL!

    Good luck!

    Another vote for the canyon. Great deal on a bike with r8000.
