The frame looks unchanged? You better have a second look!
I don't think you have many frames in the market that come close to the ride quality and performance of the Canyon in the same price range.
I think I will get me another one here to the US.
I love my Ultimate CF and use it as my primary ride.

Um, what is new here? :noidea:

That seatpost has been floating around in the design and proto phase for a long time and the frame seems unchanged, except for paint scheme.
:shock: You're joking right? Please have a second,third,forth look :thumbup:

yea, that's what I like about Canyon's, great high-end bikes but not astronomical prices.

This bike seems great and from the past and the new updates it looks to be
-looks great
-stiff....it's a Canyon!
-comfortable
-and practical...love the extra detail to the hanger

Looks better than the current model and has some nice features. But I wish they would move away from proprietry headset bearings.

Interesting that the model shows full internal routing with a mechanical groupset. Wonder what the shifting is like?

Love it. And it will have the new geometry which is awesome as well. But even if that seatpost works like a charm, I would replace it. Looks hideous and it will accumulate a lot of dirt.

I wonder though if they will have a regular, non-SLX version of the frame as well. Else I'll just stick with the AL version.

So, I am seeing changes as:
- Shapely seatstay that split the seattube with a smooth transition to the top tube. Perhaps more compliant.
- The gusset at the bottom of the headtube seems smoother and the chain stays are thinner.
- The shape of the fork from the Aeroad has been adopted in some form.
- Apparently the frame is lighter this year.
What is this a comfort bike? In all honesty, I am not initially liking these developments.

^ Interesting engineering and elegant moldings. The chainstays still look pretty beefy--looks like a *sweet* bike for the mountains. Would love to try one out.

those rumors have been around for years. they are a straight to customer type of company, why would they go through a distributer? middle man would mean higher prices.

Wouldnt it be problematic in rainy/dirty roads getting dirt inside there?
