Hi folks,

My second bike build: took me 2 years of thinkwork, 1 year of gathering all the components, 8 hours of building (installing nokon for the first time is a real bitch! :wink: ) and a lot of euro's. I wanted kind of a WW bike, but not spending too much money on it. So I bought the frame in the canyon outlet (1069 euro), the wheels (750), handelbars (130), seatpost (70), a complete red group (700) and ) 0G-brakes (170) on ebay. All of it second hand, but in a new state. Very pleased withe the result! (check all those red details...)

specs:
Canyon ultimate CF frame -->1052 grams
One one four sl fork --> 377
Corima aero+ clinchers (incl conti 4000s + latex innertubes) -->2376
Sram red shifters -->292
Nokon -->170
sram red front derailleur -->70
sram red rear derailleur -->146
sram red cranks -->645
sram red cups -->123
chain KMC -->235
sram red cassette -->166
Zero gravity brakes -->179
Syntace P6 seatpost -->190
selle italia slr carbonio seat -->140
Acros headset -->91
syntace F119 stem --> 134
syntace racelite 2 handlebars --> 219
Tape pro --> 61
Bottleholder Zipp --> 21

Total: 6687gr

Nice Canyon Ultimate CF pro, I saw one last month and its a beautiful made frame. How does it ride? I think this is the 1st Canyon I have seen on this forum?

It's raining in the netherlands, so I wouldn't know... (only taking her out in dry conditions for a first testride) I'll report later on the first impressions.

That's sarcasm right?

Great build and some fantastic deals you've found. I can never find Corima's at a decent price.

Then he will probably have to get the stem painted.
The Canyon One One Four SL and One One Four SLX forks needs an oversise 1 1/4" stem, hence the names.
I think Syntace F119 is the only aftermarket stem that will fit a 1 1/4" fork.
FSA and Ritchey has also delivered black OEM 1 1/4" stems for Canyon.
http://syntace.com/index.cfm?pid=3&pk=1143
Quote:
If 31.8 mm ...
is being used for the handlebar clamping diameter then the rest of the stem should be made as stiff and strong. A thicker stem tube is used, this 31.8mm diameter is kept throughout the stem to the clamp area. We then leave the steerer tube clamp diameter 31.8 and use a alu bushing to bring it down to 28.6.
Additional benefit: Without reduction shim the Force 119 fit's on every 1 1/4" fork.


Maybe you should let The Stig from TopGear test ride it: http://www.topgear.com/uk/stig

Took the stormtroopah for a first spin today and it was HORRIBLE............
to see her get all dirty!

But the ride was FANTASTIC! I never thought I could feel a real difference between bikes, but this is unbelievable, a bigger improvement than my switch from steel to carbon (I never rode a alu bike). Now I know what lateral stiff, yet vertical compliant means... Every push on the pedals is right on spot, accelerating through corners is sharp like a knife through butter. Even on cobblestones it filters out the small bumps so you really can keep on putting force on the pedals. Overall the handling is superb, very agile but still not nervous! Holy crap what a bike!
