[quote="maquisard"]I was at Eurobike Weds and Thurs. Have to say nothing really stood out that made me go wow. A few thoughts


- I tried to talk to someone on the Rotor stand about the fact that I have broken two of their cranks (3DF and 3D+) but was ignored!

quote]

I'm curious how these failed, hadn't heard of them having such high failure rates. I've switched over to Rotor somewhat recently due to them offering short cranks that alleviate some of my knee issues.

To bad they just didn't keep their first original R1 and R3. By far the most comfortable shoes I ever fitted.

September is way way too later for the show, needs to be in June, July is better. Most of the 2018 bikes have already been announced for months by the time Eurobike rolls around and it too late in the season if you are a buyer.

Industry is changing, if you are a big brand and want to launch a product, you invite journalists and distributors to a bespoke event. Much cheaper than blowing €200-300k on a stand at Eurobike!

Do they have much of a US distribution channel? I would definitely be into those when I go to a disc road.

Did you read the maximum tyre pressure on these? 2.5 bar = 36psi. This seems impossibly low to me, it's what I run my 35mm tubeless tyres at and I am a fairly light rider at 60kg / 132 lbs.

Also: 19.1mm internal width, not 20mm as claimed above.

Any got the 2018 canyon catalog yet? Someone usually posts it up at Eurobike time


that should be interesting


I have been told Canyon doesn't use model years anymore. They release bike models, new updates and new groupset combinations as it comes.


Strange they are advertising the cx models as 2018

That's a typo :wink: Should be 8,5 bar. See here, from the french rim distributer himself : http://www.jpracingbike1.com/accessoires/2522-jante-duke-baccara-35c-sls-disc-ud-mat-acros-decal.html#/type_de_jante-24_trous_asymetrique

Then you are by far in the minority, I'm afraid!

Fizik's initial shoe range did little more than tick over. Since the relaunch 2 years ago they have absolutely exploded. The new platform (both fit and aesthetic) has been incredibly successful.

That's typically me ;-)

But how about the soles they used in the earlier models, made by Sidas. They were better than the new...?

The wahoo climber isn't backwards compatible even with old "new" KICKR, so not going to work with other trainers. Has to with the dropouts and not damaging anything with the rotation. D.C. Rainmaker has a better explanation.

Kind of expensive anyway, but more so if I need a new trainer to use it.

yeah I figure it won't be either... but some other trainers already have rotating dropouts, so one could dream.

Yeah I couldn't believe it's not compatable with the new / old Kickr, I only bought one 4 weeks ago, wish I had of known this was coming out. Hopefully they can supply new parts to make it work on older models so they don't alienate the market. By looking at DC Rainmaker video there's two small parts he inserts before the skewer so it can rotate to make the bike lift.
Could always give the Kickr to the wife and buy the newer model. :D
