Thats iPhone cameras for you!
I bought it off the shelf - campagnolo athena and ksyrium elite wheels. ive taken them off and put a set of campagnolo zonda wheels that i had on there and will sell the ksyrium elite wheels to claw some money back.
just brilliant - stiff as a board which is my main requirement in a bike - will probably use it as a crit bike this summer for that reason

I think the difference is still the same - as in they have not just made 2012 slx into cf 2013.

The spec on 2013 CF is higher though - you get ksyrium elites where you would last year get ksyrium equippes.


Hi Valy, thx for ur information. But i just bought the frame set. So 2013 Ult Cf = 2012 Ult Cf slx ?


No. 2013 Ult CF = 2012 Ult CF. SLX was a different frame and is no longer sold.

What is the largest tyre size that will fit into an Ultimate AL frame and fork?

Has anyone tried them with 27mm Challenge Parigi Roubaix or Vittoria Pave?


Not tried but have an AL 2013 and checked that 27mm should not be a problem.


Schwalbe 28mm Ultremo fits in Ultimate SLX

I've got a set of Ambrosio Nemesis' and FMB Paris Roubaix tires, about 27 mms. They fit just nicely. These are tubulars and very high volume. The front is the tightest fit.

looks nice, I would change at least three things: paint the red stuf on the tires with a black permanent marker, use complete black bartape and change the white cables to black ones....

Nice! What kind of headset have you fitted Hoven, and did you replace both upper and lower bearings or just the upper?

Thanks hubert222 and I can assure you get really happy with it!

djm, I did just replace the upper bearingcover ordered directly from Canyon, send them an email and ask for the 4,5mm bearingcover and they send you one for about 150 NKR 8) Dina cyklar är riktigt fina med!

Nice bike Hoven. I've said it before but these Ultimate CFs really do hide their size well, really doesn't look like a 'big bike'.

Hoven: Sweet, takker! :-)

Will be replacing the Ultimate AL now as I was t-boned Friday and the frame took the brunt of the force from the car... hopefully the replacement will be just as nice :-)
