Specialized stem is not 1 1/4". Diameter of the steerer clamp is 1-2mm larger

Great build. Looks amazing and probably rides even better I would imagine.

So sweet. What handlebar tape is that? Is that original handlebar? Did you just paint over the graphics on the stem?

Hi,

Fizik microtex matt black for the bar tape, deda zero 100 handlebar (not the original, replace the original ritchey handlebars). Did not paint over the stem, i just used paint remover to remove the specialized graphics

Nice build!

Like the internal cabling and the internal BB is cleaner

BUT, although I'm sure it's a better frame - that's progress - the previous more horizontal top tube was far better looking. Shame Canyon have jumped on the Giant MTB look :roll:


+1. its such a nice Frame, but the degree of sloping is to much for my taste. not only in "xs", at least although in size "s".

of course you are right, the previous Frame`s top tube was more horizontal, in all sizes.

the geometry Chart in german does not say anything about the top tube angle, sorry.
every Frame has more horizontal top tube in bigger sizes, thats out of question.

but thats a matter of taste.

not, that its important, but: how much extrá-weight causes the Expander-plug shown above?
thanks,

micropox

As someone who owns both an aeroad and an ultimate cf slx do you rate one over the other?

I really rate the look of the aeroad but there isn't much in the way of reviews out there. The ultimate cf slx gets rave reviews in many places so i would be interested in hearing your point if view.

thanks,


indeed the slope of the XS top tube is quite dramatic

from S onwards things look more bearable though

however: this is a really nice bike, and the degree of sloping a pure matter ot taste. maybe to much for me, but quite right for someone else.
