Arrived yesterday. It is the stock SL model, the only changes being the wheels (ENVE Classic 25 rims on Tune hubs), tyres (Vittoria tubs), saddle (AX Lightness Phoenix) and skewers.

Haven't weighed her yet, but on the basis that Canyon's quoted weight for this model is 6.2kg, and the changes save around 600g, then I guess she's probably at around 5.75kg with pedals. She certainly 'feels' in that ballpark (my Storck is around 5.4kg, and there doesn't seem to be too much difference).

Nice one. I'm sure you've got yourself a great bike their. I considered this one myself, but I want the geo to fit 100 percent, and the headtube makes it kind a hard for me.

It is a small. Perfect fit for me (I'm 5'9"). Medium would have been wrong, largely because of the high headtube. Will try and post some better pics over next few days.

Beautiful looking bike, get us some more photos asap!! I'm itching to pull the trigger on one of these framesets. What's the paint finish like? It appears that type of matte which might be difficult to keep clean. How have you found it? Cheers.

The finish is probably the least impressive part of the bike. There are quite a few areas that look like either scratches (they aren't, it is just the carbon) or patches of carbon. You have to be close to notice them, but it's certainly not a perfect finish. I don't think it will be difficult to keep clean however, it doesn't attract fingerprints.

That is intended, not flaws in the finish

Really? It doesn't look very intentional to me. I appreciate that it might be a function of how the frame is made, and I'm not suggesting it is a quality / durability issue, but to my eyes it doesn't look very attractive as a 'finish'

Those are ripples in the carbon fibre plys. They could cover them with paint, or add cosmetic layers but these would only make the frame heavier.

Specifying a perfect cosmetic finish to the raw moulded item would drive the price up considerably.

All that said, can we get some better pics, that one is tiny!

Probably well founded legal concerns. Selling to the US opens up a can of litigious worms ;-)
