It's a FSA MegaExo BSA BB. The CF frame has no fancy BB standard.

Always a slightly uneasy feeling on that descent knowing the pain that's to come!

Hi Canyon Lovers.

Anybody could explain why Team Kathusa, especially Rodriguez prefer the AeRoad CF compare to CF SLX? I though that base on built, the CF SLX is more suitable for climbing than the AeRoad?

Thanks.
Andreas W.

I'm not sure, but I believe the reason to why the didn't use the old SLX, was that it was to stiff for the long races. And then something about better handling. But as said, I'm not sure at all. I've ridden the old SLX for one season, and it's a great bike. But at the moment I'm saving up for the Aeroad. Gilbert and Rodriquez are the reason for that. ;) And then there is a UCI weightlimit I have to pay attention to.

The SLX and Aeroad have different geos. The Aeroad being lower and longer, with a shorter wheelbase. The Aeroad also has a narrower headset/steerer tube diameter.

I have an AL which has the oversized tube like the SLX. It is very stiff. I can imagine the kind of hours pros ride the feedback coming up through the front of the bike could be fatiguing.

Dear Canyon-heads.

Time for a rookie question: is it possible to test ride Canyons anywhere? I do know that their business model is based on cutting out the middle man. Nonetheless, I'm still not sure as to which one (Ultimate CF vs. Aeroad) to buy and in which size (2XL vs. 3XL). Putting 3 grand on the table feels like a risky deal without knowing exactly which one fits best.

Well one thing is for sure. Don't trust their sizing guide 100 %. I've seen and heard a few people who got oversized bikes.

I was recommended a smaller bike on their sizing guide. In the end I compared the geo to a bike I already had and went with the closest I could get to that. If I had gone with the sizing guide (which is based only on inside leg I think) I would have ended up with a tiny bike
