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?

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

If it's about stiffness, here are some values of roadbike.de tests

Alu frames
- Cannondale CAAD9 - http://www.roadbike.de/rennraeder/test- ... latt.9.htm
- Canyon Ultimate AL - http://www.roadbike.de/rennraeder/test- ... latt.9.htm
So, Canyon's alu frame is stiffer than a CAAD9!!!

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

Cannondale CAAD 9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Canyon Ultimate AL 7.0

Code:
Weight CAAD9  AL7.0
Frame: 1250g  1380g
Fork:   425g   315g
Total: 1675g  1695g

This is taken from a test of 18 Ultegra bikes. You can see test results for all 18 bikes here: http://www.roadbike.de/test/bikes/test- ... 8708.9.htm
