I'm considering a Canyon Ultimate AL 9.0, with the Force Groupset and Ksyrium Equipe wheels. Canyon has it listed at 7.55kg, which sounds a bit optimistic to me. Does anyone have one of the Ultimate AL bikes that they've weighed? How does actual weight compare to Canyon's listed weight?

My 2006 F8 is 1271g in size 51, without the headset.
I never did weigh the replacement fork.

Yes one of the stiffest lightweight alloy frames out there. Here's weight and stiffness comparisons with the well know Cannondale CAAD 9 alloy frameset: viewtopic.php?p=502521#p502521

Alu frames

So, Canyon's alu frame is stiffer than a CAAD9!!!

"tretlager" is BB
"lenkkopf" is headtube
("laufrad" is wheel)
