Hi, I recently received my Canyon Aeroad model 2015 with Reynolds wheels, I have a 23mm tyre/tires on the front and 25mm on the back! I thought they came with 25mm both front and rear, after all the Reynolds Strike SLG is a somewhat wider rim.. Can someone please confirm what their bike came supplied with? I wanted to cancel my order after initially ordering in Feb 2015 with March delivery, but I used the Canyons online sizing program and the frame was too unfortunately too small. I drove a 1300 km round trip to pick it up and I cannot recall or noticing the different tyre sized tyres/tires which I immediately noticed on my new bike, I did ask Canyon but I want confirmation from another owner as my bike was I believe rushed together, see the continuing text..
I re-ordered the same day in the Factory shop with early May delivery, then there was a 5 weeks further delay, as that deadline also passed and I had heard nothing from Canyon I said OK I cancel, after all the 2016 models will be introduced in what 7-8 weeks time at Eurobike, but after telephoning they must have rushed up a bike somehow and eventually 6 weeks and 3 days after the planned termin (They ignored my email stating that I cancel the order and the reason why) I got my bike, but with different sized tyres and not the cassette 12-15 which I also pre-ordered, sold out I was told, well please order one from Shimano?? Anyhow my girlfriend signed for the bike from the postman and I had to have look at it!
Have ridden it once and well can't give it back now! Most impressive bike, the aero effect is certainly noticeable and smooths out the bums almost like a bike with suspension, no annoying vibrations on changing worn out tarmac etc also..
I find it annoying that Canyon decided this year to go the 52-36T route on the cranks and offer no other options, I like compact and now have to buy a new crank (separate chain wheels virtually the same price) it's annoying, particularly when what I consider to be an expensive bike, their argument is that by pedaling you cover more ground per revolution, some what 2.3 meters (don't quote me on that!) OK but when you don't have the fitness and I am quite fit.. Then it does not help! Also the terrain I ride my chain suffers as I'm in the lowers gears at the rear and on the big cog up front.. Compact 50-34 T option please, I did explain myself to a member of Canyon staff but I believe my words fell on deaf ears! They ask you for your thoughts and want you to fill out forms at their factory showroom, perhaps next year it will change?
Anyhow great bike, should now go riding now and not boring you all.. Thx
