Goes to show you can't go wrong with an understated bike. Well done!

PS: I'm surprised how low the weight is - I'm planning a build and am struggling to get to the 6kg mark. Can you post weights for inspiration?


here's some individual weights
frame weight 978g with 2 press fit headset bearings
Image

fork weight 346g
Image

saddle with the gloss coat
Image

seatpost with the gloss coat

zg's

stem

hbar

crankset

50mms before i swapped the campy freehub body to shimano.

quite impressive. i like canyon, first of all. it's smth like a work machine, no myth around it, no must-have factor, it's a pure machine.

i must say, i like your bike with the deep-v wheels. i don't like it at all with the lighter rims. the frame is way too fat for such skinny rims... but in the deep-v trim it looks pretty cool. however, there's 2 things i'd change:

1. seatpost: it may be light, but the clamping section on the saddle rails already show that you should use a seatpost with setback. get yourself a bontrager xxx lite seatpost and have it sanded and custom-painted with with a matte clear coat, no decals on in. mine weighs 130g in 27,2mm and 250mm. not bad for a setback seatpost, and i would call that a bargain too!

2. stem: i don't know why, but the ritchey stem is nothing that i fancy. i'd prefer a syntace stem, either an f119 (for 1.5" steerers) or an f109 (for 1.25"). your choice. the naked silver clamp looks a little too naked to me...

apart from that i would definitely ride that bike! ;)

daddy yo-yo thanks for the ideas.
yeah the 50mms are its wheelset, just weighed it with the 20mms to see how low it can go an tried it out for a some rides then put the 50mms back on.
1. will consider the xxxlite seatpost
2. stem came with the frame. and since i would be 'unbadging' it anyway, i stuck with it instead of a syntace. i can actually use a 119 (1.25 without the shim) but since lazer etched graphics are hard to remove, decided againts ordering one.

Great build. Looks like a lot of thought has gone into it to achieve a very light weight without breaking the bank?

I'm picking up my SLX tomorrow ... but it's more of a pro build and will be more like 6.3/6.4kg with Record and 202s.

Is it wrong that I get aroused when I look at this bike?

nice build. I often wish I had ordered a Canyon instead of my Guru while I was in Europe. I totally missed out on that sale.
