Been a regular lurker on here for a while, thought it was probably about time I got some pictures posted of my Canyon. Its a 2012 SLX 9.0 Pro, had it since July now and its such a nice bike to ride. Fast and responsive, yet so comfortable at the same time. Not sure how much of that is down to the vcls seatpost, be interested to try it with something else fitted to find out but whatever it is, works.
Despite having it since July, i'm still tweaking the position. Had a bike fit in August, which I'm stil working around trying to find the best compromise.
Frameset: 2012 Canyon Ultimate SLX 9.0 Pro -58cm
Groupset: Campagnolo Record 11s
Handlebars: Ritchey WCS Evo Curve
Bar Tape: Prologo Double Touch
Stem: Ritchey WCS 110mm (logo's removed and ti bolts fitted)
Chain catcher: K Edge
Seat: Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow
Wheelset: Mavic Krysrium SLR WTS (logo / stickers removed)
Pedals: Look Keo Sprint
Weight is around 6.8kg as it stands although this was on an ebay scale so not sure how accurate that is
As said above still tweaking the position. Bars and hoods are set as the fitting, and drops are horizontal to the floor despite how it looks in the picture. No where as aesthically pleasing as most bikes on here due to the sizing (length of post exposed for a start which I don't like
next size up would be too big) but ride makes up for it imo.
Any glaringly obvious places and suggestions to save weight would be appreciated, pedals, bars and seatpost are possibilities at the minute.
