Take a look at this one http://www.bikester.nl/fietsonderdelen/fietsstuur-handvatten/handvat-accessoires/232881.html

They are available in most bike shops or they should at least be able to order them for you .

By the way a very nice bike :thumbup: . But i would also chanche the stem for something like a 3t arx ltd or a 3t arx pro stealth . Also a zipp sl speed stem would look nice .

Thanks for the link. I found a similar product through a WW forum discussion and I have ordered it. Re the stem, I wanted to keep the stem and bars the same make so given I bought the Easton bars had to go with the Easton stem as well. Perhaps the photos don't do it justice...it's a great piece of kit, nice and light too.

could you measure the bar clamp width on that stem for me. I'm giving it some thought of getting one for my TT project.

Love the effort you put into the wheels. Job well done!

The clamp is around 33mm. Thats the width of it when you are looking at the clamp from front on. Hope that helps.

Great looking bike. Very stealth.

Got this new mount for my Garmin 500 today. Sure looks better than mounting it with those rubber bands in the middle of the stem. Its a racewaredirect mount....very light, fits the bar and computer perfectly and it cost around €30.

I have a question about sanding your wheels.
Did you strip them down to the rim only or leave as a complete wheel when you sanded them?
Did you have to mask off the brake track/spokes etc. when you painted them and did you spray them or use a brush?
Half way thru sanding some EC90SLX wheels and it very time consuming.
They came out excelllant on your build :thumbup:

I left the wheels complete. Sanding them was already lots of work and i didnt want to create more by pulling the wheels apart. I didnt put tape on the spokes, although i should have because there are a few areas where i have taken paint of them (cant really notice it though). I also didnt tape the break track, i just avoided sanding that area. When i put a clear lacquer on i sprayed it on. I found a product that is used on cars but you could also go to a model shop and get a small can (its all the same stuff). I did tape the break track and spokes when i sprayed the lacquer on. I gave each wheel 4 coats, maybe it was too much. But the wheels came up a treat and i am very happy with them.

It is time consuming. After 1/2 hour of using very light wet and dry paper i went and got more course paper and that seems to work heaps better for the top coat of paint. When i reached the carbon then i used a light paper to get all the little pieces of paint and lacquer. Hope that helps

are you just using regular steerer spacers onto of the supplied cone spacer and what height are they?
I've considered getting an aeroroad but I'd need about 20mm + the cone spacer and am worried it might look naff. your set up looks nice

The setup is how it came from Canyon. The steerer spacers are around 15mm above the cone spacer and with everything (cone and steerer spacers) they add up to 30mm from the top of the frame to the bottom of the stem.

Get an Aeroad, you will not be disappointed! 20mm of spacers will look fine....besides people will be focusing on your fantastic bike, not the spacers :thumbup:
