Thanks for the tips.
Done a small 30km ride today with 4 and 5 hex keys on the back pocket for adjustments on the go :)

Small corrections on saddle position and tilt about 10mm up and forward, and handlebar tilt.
The bike feels more comfortable now, but the handlebar still feels too narrow with 400mm wide... hmmm na I don't like it...

yes it's an awesome bike very light and very stiff it's impressive, you cant bend the seat stays 1mm with all your strength! :shock:
And looks cool too :D

PPS only takes inseam into account? Thats not very good prediction for frame size.. found that out the bad way. Pay attention if you're going to buy a new canyon! ;)
PPS info:
height: 171
inseam: 81
weight: 71kg now 72...
Shoulders: 45
arms: 59
torso: 63

I think you're on the right size frame. I ride a M(56) in this geo. Talk to Canyon about swapping the stem/bar. My PPS info for comparison.

Body height: 178
Inseam: 86
Body weight: 64
Shoulder width: 40
Arm length: 67
Torso length: 61

Hi cula_ru, what is your saddle height?

hi,

I didn't have the opportunity to measure it yet but from the top of the saddle to the pedal should be 82 or 83cm (my leg is stretched)


Now finally I have a response from lady Canyon! what kind of internet based company takes at least an entire day to answer to a simple email?? canyon!....
And the previous time they took 4 days! how ridiculous!...

They say they have the bike in stock and can change it for the size M or change the handlebar + stem, which I have to send to them anyway.
Now I don't really know what should I do because anyway I'll be without bike for 1 week or two! :evil:
Then the bike has some 200km now, I don't really know if they'll be asking me for money for the change because of the wear the bike has already. It's still new but used...
Or just keep it and spend more money on bigger parts

best decision needed :)

Haha ONLY 4 days from Canyon is more like it, you should count yourself lucky.

Seriously, you need to get yourself fitted before you swap for a whole new bike.

To me, it just looks like you need a longer stem and wider bars (which is not really Canyon's problem).

That's bad news. What happened here? Elaborate!

Any bigger riders have stiffness issue (bb or headtube) with the Aeroad? I'm 88kg.

Can't say personally but that seems to be one of the issues you read in magazine reviews, seems the Aeroad lags behind other aero bikes in terms of stiffness.

Follow up question on the Aeroad. I used the sizing guide on the canyon website and it put me on a 60/XL sized bikes. Right now I ride a XXL/61 scott cr1(pre addict one) with a 130mm -17 degree stem with 5mm of spacers under it. My fit feels good right now. I am 192cm tall, cycling inseam of 91cm, saddle height at ~83cm. The aeroad head tube is shorter geometry wise than on the cr1 I think - haven't checked yet.

What would you say about sizing?

I have Bianchi pista which I use on the open road to practice cadence/endurance. On my Bianchi I have mounted a front brake as I do not dare to go without. As I got my SLX some weeks ago I started looking at the Canyon V-drome, but I cannot find if the carbon fork is prepared for a front brake (like on the Cinelli Mash track bikes there is a hole, but on the front you have to pinch it).
Does anybody knows this?

I have sent an email to Canyon but I did not get a convincing answer to put my Bianchi for sale and get me a V-drome :-)

I did a very quick Google search (search Images for "Canyon V-Drome") and quickly found an answer for you: NO.
