While I sit here and wait - since october - for my new Canyon CF Speedmax Evo, I have started preparing some of the things I am going to change on it.

The Shimano Ultegra crankset is first thing up - need to replace that with something lighter, and more bling.

For the project, I have bought a Sram Red 2011 GXP crankset (BCD 130) with Sram (53T) og Shimano (42T) chainrings.

Image

After some sanding I have added this stuff:

- Black Sram Powerglide 39T chainring
- Black TI chainring bolts

The scale is out of batteries, so an updated weight will have to wait.

And then I just need my new Fibre-Lyte "total aero" 54T chainring - it should fit like a glove. Similar style as the one Tillquist used with his old Dura Ace 7800 crankset.

Exactly... :)

Where you satisfied with it? And will you confirm, that your chainring is 2 x 2 weave...

I ran single ring and it was a 2X weave. The ring was very stiff and with zero fact behind it the carbon to steel chain seemed like less friction. Also carbon on metal chain runs very quiet. I ran mine for two seasons, approximately 3,000 miles, with no perceptible wear.

One last thing... what is (was?) the weight on that 54T aero ring of yours?

I had one too just like Juanmoretime fitted to an FSA SLk crankset. Mine was 48T and it was absolutely perfect. Can't recommend Fibre-lyte enough! I just ran a single at the front so I had the larger tooth profile. It worked a treat and I never had a chain off and I didn't even run a derailleur or chain guide at the front.

The total aero chainring from Fibre-Lyte arrived today - thanks, Stephen... it looks (and feels) awesome.

The final result: 659 grams of aero crankset with 54/39 tooth chainrings and TI-bolts.

Looks very, very good! But will the Speedmax Evo cranks not be good enough? I want that bike as well but it won't be sold as a separate frame :-(! I have bought the same cranks for my "old" Speedmax to combine them with the Sram Stage Power crank. Sanding them looks a very good option but as for the blade I prefer the Rotor aero's :D !

Wow... you have got a nice collection of Canyon's... :thumbup:

I have bought the entry-level model - Di2 Ultegra will do the job just fine for me. Going to upgrade the wheels, and - as you can see - the crankset. I find the Ultegra crankset heavy - and a bit too ordinary to look at. And on top of that, it is not particularly aero.

Thx :mrgreen: ! Like you I'm a big Canyon fan and as we speak my CF and the Speedmax is drilled for internal Di2 and brake cables. The Speedmax Evo is stunning and the Ultegra cranks are indeed not very aero :? . Bizarre that Canyon has still no delivery dates on the Speedmax Evo....hopefully it will come soon!
