I never noticed how boxed in/boxy the headtube/downtube junction was.

What size is that?

Any heavier riders found BB/headtube stiffness a problem with the Aeroad? I'm about 88kg.

I'm 76 kgs and it has posed no problems for me. Sure, if I yank and pull at the frame at standstill I can see that the headtube is softer than on the Ultimate AL, but it poses no real problem to me on the road. It feels great.

The only review I've seen that mentions a negative is that the top tube seemed flexy, and that the front and rear felt separate.
What they were comparing to, I don't know.
I'm sure it's no worse than the other aero road bikes out there and certainly stiffer than what we were riding five years ago anyway...

Is that just a force crank set with a red chain ring? Looks ace! :thumbup:

If I have to choose between spending the little free time I have between riding outside with a little hair on the legs or inside in the bathroom taking off those hairs, the choice for me is very clear :roll:

Anyway, some more pics:

I were to buy my second Canyon. I ordered the Aeroad CF 9.0 Team when it was on discount few weeks ago. Estimated delivery was last week. Sent email to them week ago monday. No reply. Sent second email friday. No reply. Called them Friday afternoon. Guy on the line told me:"Looks like there is a delay of five weeks. I can't see why." I said:"Well that doesn't sound good?" Guy on the line:"*silence* *types on keyboard* and after while hangs up on me.

I called again yesterday asking what is the status of my order. Woman on the line just told me that estimated delivery is at week 30 and there is no delay. I was like WTF??!! I told that I have order confirmation with week 25 on it. ... She said that she will send me another order confirmation with week 30 in it as estimated delivery time.

I sent them email saying they can keep their bike which they can't deliver.

I ordered Look 695 with Dura-Ace Di2 9070. I already have Mavic CCU's so I would have sold the wheels from that Canyon anyway.
