I only race the tubulars, so only inflate them once or twice a week.
They seem to hold the pressure pretty well...

There is something cool about low profile tubulars. Very nice bike you've got there, enjoy it as much as you can :thumbup:

i had to tighten the cassette (11speed) with a 10 speed lockring (campa), otherwise the wheel wouldn't fit... Perfect now!

You also need to adjust your shifters position.

Hi Carl

Love the bike especially the low stack height. Can you tell me more about the bits you need for this? Have looked on the canyon website and google smolik wedge but haven't found anything. Thanks. Dave

I'll PM you with the part numbers :thumbup: Then you let Canyon know which parts you need, they'll take care of you


Hi!

I wondered if you still know what the part numbers are. I am looking to get lower on my Canyon Ultimate CF, but the Acros I-Lock headset makes it rather difficult for me to do so. It would be really helpful :)
