Into the mist sounds like nice build :thumbup: looking forward for pictures

you should name it Kuiper

put it on the places where Canyon supposed to stand, also on front fork, and rear fork ooh wait don't forget to put "L'Alpe d'Huez" on the top tube.

btw don't put a clamp on the top tube it's very thin.

"Kuiper the Canyon"

Build finished at 2215 UK time... its been a long afternoon! Chain length was the hardest thing to get spot on, I think I need to take a couple more links out . I promise to post pics tomorrow, but I still haven't test ridden due to rubbish weather here in London :cry:

But...It looks great :D

OK, here are some pics of the finished bike, I got carried away and forgot to take some pics before attaching the CS200 computer... Weight is 7320g (ex computer) from adding all the parts together (yes I did take pics of scales but they are not the most accurate) and 7.6 KG according to the digital bathroom scales (inc computer)

The SW London weather broke for an hour or so this morning and I managed to put a test ride in. First impressions are excellent- as many have said this offers a very stiff ride, accelerates beautifully and feels very solid and stable compared to my Giant TCR alu. You do feel the rough roads, but no more than the TCR so OK for me! The main thing is it feels fast, and with me being an 84KG ex-rower the stiffness is most welcome 8)

And most importantly, no bits fell off.

Steve

Congratulations on a nice ride. What size is the frame? Looks like you got the Thompson Elite post and not the Masterpiece.

Craigagogo- Yes the post is an Elite, I thought when I saw the invoice it said masterpiece but clearly it is the elite, but it was still a good deal at an extra 50euros on top of the rest! Frame is a 58

EURO
- cost including Frame, forks, headset, Syntace stem and the extra Thomson seatpost was £752.48, and that includes the racing license discount. Bargain!!

Kuiper
- thanks for the clamp tip, I'm guessing thats where you had problems :hmm:

Well, mine was cracked after cobble-"line" for 2-3cm exactly in the middle then 2 days later crash and cracked more the top tube is very thin,
when I came at the distributor they told me that the Top Tube is very thin and they prefer not to clamp it, there was also another bike tested by Fiets Magazine (dutch) and it was cracked on some place during transport in box (not putted back in the right way in the box back)

I am getting a new frame from Canyon will post pic's on arrive

It is a very nice F10! Congratulations! :D

And your choice is excellent to use this frame with Campagnolo-equipment.

But be aware! The German "Tour-Magazin" reported that there are problems with the Smolik-fork while using Campagnolo wheels!

Next time mount your tires to the same corresponding location on both of the wheels. Most often I see the inner tube valve centered in relation to the tire decals.

Otherwise...Nice build.
