Sorted the torx out. Canyon sent me a small tool that should have come with the packaging. It arrived in just 2 days. For reference it's a T6.

The red one would look great with white saddle-tape.

Sadly, my only white Squadra Ti saddle is on the white Slingshot.
I mounted the red and white Extralite saddle (with the embroidered pin-up girl) and it looked fantastic, but not exactly suited to my rear end comfort.
Tried white bottle cages too and it ended up looking cheesy, so I went back to the black.
Sadly, still no test report. Itching to try it out.

@Stolichnaya how tall are you, if I may ask?
My measurements are close between 58 and 60. 1cm difference in inseam and trunk results Canyon's recommended size going from 58 to 60.
Regarding to competitive cyclist's calculator I should have 60. I'm 188cm.

Hope I'll add my Canyon's pics :soon: (in the excel looks promising just under 6kg finger crossed) :thumbup:

Too much red, IMO. Love the red frame, let it do the talking. Really like it.

Loving the look of both the Ultimate AL and the Ultimate CF framesets and may be tempted to pull the pin on a purchase in early summer.

Hoping owners could, however, confirm the seat tube centre to centre measurements of a 54 frame in both the alloy and carbon options to assist with sizing selection before buying please.

Many thanks

Andy

1415chris, I went with the 60 because I have shorter legs but a longer torso. I am only about 1 cm taller than you, but I prefer a larger/longer frame when faced with the 'inbetween sizes' decision. The fit will probably need a 120 stem and a lower stack headset cap eventually, but I will test the current set up first.

First post with pictures, hope this works

Sanding was done with blade instead off sanding paper.

No weight yet but frame with headset, fork, seatpostclamp and bottombracket was 1450 gr for size 60, i guess they put on a lot off clearcoat (frame was shiny-black)
