Hi,
because of the locked gallery threads I want to show you my Canyon-Family.

So I started cycling in 2011 with this bike:
Image
Canyon Roadlite 7.0 with complete Ultegra 10s groupset.

The bike is still in my garage and at the moment it looks like this:
Image

In 2013 I got my hands on a used carbon frameset:
Image
Canyon Ultimate CF F10
Stripped my Roadlite and mounted the Ultegra-Groupset on the carbon frame. I also got some new wheels: Mavic Ksyrium SLR WTS.

In 2014 I updated to Dura Ace 9000 groupset (6580 g):
Image

In 2015 I did some little upgrade to the CF frame with a new saddle (Fizik Arione) and some carbon wheelset:
Image
It is also still in my garage like this.

In 2016 i won the Canyon Instagram #mycanyon contest and got the new Ultimate CF SLX frame. So I decided to build my absolutely dreambike with SRAM eTap and Zipp 404. Here is the result (showed this on WW already):
Image

In 2017 I crashed the Ultimate and asked Canyon about crash replacement. Because of the process, shipping and waiting for the replacing Ultimate I ordered an Aeroad which was right available.

So here is my 2017 Aeroad with the parts from the Ultimate (eTap and Zipp 404):
Image
Well, I got some Quarq-PM, too.

These days I got my Ultimate back and built it as a climbing bike. Here is the Result: 2017 Aeroad next to the Ultimate:
Image

Some weights:
2017 Aeroad CF SLX with eTap and Zipp 404: 7250 g
2017 Ultimate CF SLX with eTap WiFLi and Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL T Haute Route: 6260 g

For now I am finished but what's next? :D
Will keep this thread updated...

do you think the aeroroad has significant aero gains over the ultimate on the flats? Im hoping to get one when they start selling in the states.

Very surprised about the 1kg difference between the two bikes what is the difference between the two frames and the two wheelsets?

Well on flats i would always prefer the Aeroad. It really feels like a machine. Im not able to ride as fast as the pros so cant really talk about enormous gains ;)

Main difference is between wheelsets because the zipps are clinchers. So the zipps weigh around 1.6 kg and the mavics are tubular and weigh about 1.190g i think (wheelset only)

i read narrowing your handlebars by 2cm has more aerodynamic effect than any aeroroad type frame improvements.

:slowclap Bravo, sir. Absolutely stunning. That Aeroad is absolutely gorgeous (not that the Ultimate isn't).

Would you mind posting a photo of how you store your bikes?

Correct. As will wearing properly fitting clothes, getting a decent position (elbows bent - not straight), wearing a helmet with decent drag coefficient, decently aerodynamic wheels, a well-tuned drive-train...

Gotta be doing 40km+ to notice any real gains too...
