My Canyon Ultimate AL (linked in signature) had to be replaced after I was hit by a car.

I didn't do the build myself but instead ordered a complete Ultimate AL with Ultegra Di2. I have made some minor modifications/additions myself and will make a few more as time passes :-)

Details coming.

That's awesome! Love the black with the gumwalls and the classic, low-profile wheels.

Sweet ride! Would be really badass with a -17 stem and a SRM Powercontrol! The low profile wheels and the "Porn-tubs" really fits the bike!

Thanks btompkins and Bregnhoj!

Bregnhoj: Send me a PC and I will use it! ;-) I'm waiting for the PCVIII/8 which is supposed to have GPS capabilities. Might be a long wait?

Thanks TP, the wheels are Ambrosio Nemesis rims, Sapim Cx-ray, DT Swiss 240S hubs. Fitted w Vittoria SC tubulars, 23mm.

I had them on a set of 27mm FMB Paris-Roubaix tires, which came into conflict with my chainstay mounted Di2 battery and had to go. I am a little surprised at how harsh these wheels ride. I might have to lower the pressure in the tires just a tad. 100 should be sudficient but is 15 psi below Vittoria's recommendation.

Sweet build but the fork looks kind of weedy?

What does "weedy" mean?

"Of a scrawny build; spindly or gawky"

bencolem: I can see what you mean, but the fork feels pretty darn good :) I would say it is one of the more comfortable forks I've ridden, and there's no problem descending at high speed with it, nor with braking, I feel very confident on it. (Well, except for that accident three weeks ago when I was wiped out by some sand in a hairpin and suffered a decent concussion, but I'm not blaming the bike! ;-) )
