Location: Sydney
Frameset: Canyon Ultimate CF SLX
Groupset: Dura Ace 9000
Wheels: Fulcrum Racing Zero Nite
Bars: Deda Superlegerra
Saddle: Selle Italia Kit Carbonio SLR (custom kangaroo leather!)

Whilst I loved my previous all-Italian C59 setup (SR group), this new frame/groupset/wheel combo shows up every creak/flex/rattle that I was putting up with on the old machine - my new bike works perfectly in every way!

The wheels, for anyone considering them, are spectacular! Brakes are unreal but without the squeal of Ksyriums, hubs are super smooth, and coasting is super quiet, making it easy to fly under the radar or launch a sneaky move!

Enjoy...

As I've the same frame/wheel combo, I can only say that is't a lovely match! Rest of the bike is also up to spec to be a fantastic bike! Congrats. Can you give a short comparison with your previous c59 regarding (own thoughts on the CF SLX)

-stifness (BB perfectly stiff in a good way, I wish front end was a little stiffer)
-comfort (does a magic job in filtering vibrations and small irregularities)
-steering & handling (very, very direct, simetimes a little twitchy, that's where higher front end stiffness could help. Nevertheless, a real pleasure in twisty downhills)

If you want to save some weight, you could consider a Ritchey superlogic seatpost (145 gr vs 220gr), near perfect visual match 'cause really stealth and why not a lighter handlebar (suppose your's alu). See mine f.ex (http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=125560&start=30

Hey bfno - how did the mail forwarder work out for you so far? I would like to try the same though from up in Toronto Canada.

Any advice would be great!
