Thanks! I think this is going to be my next road frame and in size 52 as well. Good to know how it looks, shame the top tupe is slightly sloping compared to the other, bigger sizes.

Your bike is very lovely, looks 95% perfect. The only thing I don't like is silver seatpost. Otherwise it's perfect build!
A light bike does replace good fitness.

nice bike. but in contrast to other posts in this thread, i do not like the silver parts. i'd definitely go for a black seatpost (maybe even a black seatpost collar) and probably also black bar tape and saddle. this would highlight the frame much more! and please, get rid of the golden skewers on the shimano wheels! try to get orange tune dc14 to match the orange decals on your frame!

I think the silver (seatpost & stem) looks really classy and would stand out in a crowd.
If you want the bike to look more "mean", then the black seatpost and stem and tape are the way to go, IMO.

Either way, great build. I like it. One of my favorites.

Nice ride. How difficult was it removing the decals from the 7850-C50 T's?

Beautiful build and a great result. Canyons are SO under-rated by some readers however it is kind of good they don't know what they are missing.

I love mine ...
