So here is my main crit bike. I initially had some fitting issues that couple with a challenging DA7900 setup really made me think twice about this bike but now that everything is dialled in Im in love. To be honest I wasnt a big fan of the looks of the Canyon Frame at first. I just bought it because I couldnt resist the bargain. But I have to say performance wise its the best frame I have ever ridden and the looks are growing on me. Here’s the spec:

Frame: Canyon CF
Fork: Canyon One One Four
Wheelset: Reynolds DV46 UL (2009) (sometimes 7850-C50 T’s)
Skewers: KCNC
Tyres: Veloflex Carbon
Shifters: DA7900
FD: DA7900
RD: DA7900
Crankset: DA7900
BB: DA7900
Cassette: DA7900
Pedals: DA7900
Chain: DA7900
Saddle: Fizik Arione
Bars: 3T Ergonova Pro
Stem: Ritchey 4-Axis WCS
Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece
Brakes: DA7900
Cables: Aligator I-link

Final Weight:
With Reynolds - 6.9kg
With Shimano C50’s – 7.24kg

ohhh Im in love. Beutiful build!

Final touch could be to get a silver Thomson stem, but it's also nice as it is.

I really like the look of the bike- but I think it could use a silver thompson stem to match real nice.

On a side note, it looks like the shimano DA hoods fit like an old pair of socks, is this normal. I would expect more.

@Zak & Captain Fuzz- Thompson don't make stems for 1 1/4 steerers

Thanks for the nice replies! I'm a proud daddy! :)

Murphs great to see you've got your bike after such a long struggle. As long as it fits you the bike is totally worth it. I have now 1.5cm less drop on the canyon compared to my other bikes. The longer reach of the 7900 hoods kind compensates for this. Its beginning to grow on me :)

It should be fine, i have longish lower legs so I don't run large saddle - bar drop. Might not even need to have the stem slammed

Really nice bike! What is the main reason that Cervelo has DA 7800 and Canyon 7900?

I would like to see 7900 groupset in Soloist 8)

From the SLC thread...

I'd go with the Ritchey WCS 4-Axis white stem. It'd match well with the overall scheme of the bike!

A light bike does replace good fitness.
