I am intrigued that you went with an SL fork that requires a bit of retrofit (Canyon CF tapers from 1.25" to 1.5") just due to stiffness concerns.
The original Canyon fork combined with the frame is a stellar combination and is easily tuned with wheel and tire/pressure choice.
The SL seems like a downgrade that is not well mated to the (great) frame. The original frame and fork together produce absurdly razor sharp handling.
Having said that, the SL allows you a wider choice of stems and even the option to use a combo stem/bar... Hmmm, now you have me thinking.
Hi Stolichnaya, well if you have a Canyon with the one one four slx fork then you have to measure the two diameters-at the crown and at the top, you will be surprised that it's not a 1.25 to 1.5, at the crown it's a weird diameter (Canyon custom)-that's why you wont be able to source a ahead set yourself unless you get it from Canyon
She FK30 SL is also a tapered fork- 1.375 to 1.125, and has pretty much the same diametre at the crown-where it's more important in terms of stiffness.
I'm very happy with the ride and stiffness wise it's still the stiffest bike I've ever road but it feels more compliant. As I mentioned, I've done crits-, road and mountain races with the new set-up and wouldn't go back, and compared to the same crits with the orig. fork I can't tell a difference in handling it still cuts corners like before, maybe if I would swap forks during the same race
So, my Canyon fork is for sale but be aware-it only fits Canyon bikes
