I thought 2005 Zonda wheels are equipped with Record-quality hubs?

There is a reason for doing this too. When you puncture you can pop the tube out, find the hole. If you always line up the label and the valve, then you know where in the tyre to look for the thorn. You could perhaps just use the valve hole to do this, but sometimes the tyres will turn on the rims when there is no tube in them.

Good tip- I always do that when I puncture anyway but have to be careful about remembering where in relation to the tyre the tube was, using the label makes a lot of sense!

Rich- The bike is awesome! Did 5 laps of Richmond park in the sun this morning and it was begging me to go faster, very stable around the corners and sprints well out of the saddle. I bet you can't wait to get the "ghost of Canyon" up and running!

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


Woulds eurus 2005 be some of these wheels?

I have Eurus 06 and can't see quite what the problem might be?

The cap of the hubs that provides the hubs from dust etc. has contact to the dropouts of the fork (see the third picture).

Tour-Magazin says that this would damage the hub.

Looks like its the carbon hubs that are the problem? See my pic- no issues with Eurus 06!

Indeed!

But on third picture in the magazine you see no carbon hub.

They call the "problem-hubs" HPW-hubs. :?:

I think not there would be any problems with the new 06 eurus, because a different hub.

O.k., then it would by functional using 2006 Campagnolo wheels. I did not know that there are different hubs on 2005 and 2006 wheels.

I am riding with Mavic Ksyrium SL 2006. They are good enough... :D

Nice ride, i'm going to build up almost exactly the same bike. Can you tell me what's the weight of this beauty?

Is there a Canyon dist. in the US? Pricing for F&F as well as complete? Their site does not do english so I can't tell if/where they are available.
