Beautiful bike and nicely set up.

The shifting lever is a bit too bulky though.

Very nice, my first CF was white but I sold it and missed it immediately and got me the another one 2012 black.
What size is your frame and what's your height if I'm allowed to ask?
Looking at your seat post it looks like you maybe could have gotten one size smaller.
My first one was a 56 and looked like yours but for my current frame I choose one size smaller and the 54cm fits perfect and looks better with more post showing and a slammed stem.
Still, great ride!

Enjoy :thumbup:

Out of interest what do your wheels weigh as my build is nearly identical except for those and with a 58 frame so just interested to know the weight difference between the 2 frames. (Never weighed my frame from new unfortunately)

It looked bigger on the pictures. I'm 5.8 with an 33in inseam and this is how my 54 looks.
With you being 5.7 on a 50 it looks like your inseam is a little shorter.
Have fun riding your beautiful Canyon.....I know I do!

It does look bigger in the pic for some strange reason, I can assure you it is a 50 ;p Yeah my inseam is quite short!
