Hi Lone Wheeler,

Happy with your aluminium frame ?

How's the ride ?

Did you experience BB creaking finally ?

Thanks for sharing

Yesterday UPS came earlier than expected... 8)

It took me about 20 minutes to find out where to charge the Di2 battery. As the SLX comes with the battery mounted inside seat tube, and this way of mounting is rather "new" there was nothing mentioned in the manuals, so a little online searching helped me out:

Hi,

I love the bike, it rides like a dream. Very stiff and direct, a real race day bike. Thankfully no BB issues although on it's maiden ride a creak did appear but it was the skewers in the end.

Nice to see happy Canyon users!

I am still not able to take my bike for a ride.... it's raining for 2 days now, and the forecast is not looking good either. Where is the Spanish sun??? :noidea: :noidea:

I did some adjustments of the gears, saddle height/angle, cleats swap (old ones to older shoes, and new ones on my newer shoes), handlebar angle etc. on my rollers. I noticed by the way that using rollers with a road bike is much more difficult than with a track bike 8)

Today the weather cleared and I could take my bike for a test ride after work.
The bike felt really good light (7,4Kg without bottle and saddlebag) and I am very satisfied about the VCLS seatpost in combination with my San Marco Zoncolan.
Ultegra Di2 is really nice, and shifts perfect.

Here a "crappy" picture, better pictures will follow :P
