Imagine creaking could be a real issue.

I see loads of differences. Down tube is squared vs previous rounded shape, headtube seems way more narrow and shorter, the seat/top tube junction has a totally different design. Generally the tube diameters seem smaller as well.

I was thinking the aeroad would be my next frame but this one has me thinking. Looks gorgeous!!! :beerchug:

That would be my concern as well. But gone are the days when Canyon was about no-compromise stiffness. Which is a bit of a shame.

Hmmm, was looking forward to the release of this as have been giving serious consideration to getting the current Ultimate CF SLX lately ( what a mouthful of a name! ). I personally think it looks really good, in a purposeful way. However do the improvements make it worth waiting for UK availability and the inevitable price hike now, ah decisions decisions...
