What a change! how does the canyon compare to the giant. (which has an awesome paint job.)

Canyon frameset weight less 325gr than Giant frameset , but more stiffer .It is like a stone . It is very quickly pick up speed. Handling is to absolutely different . Very glad to buyed this frameset. It cost for me about 600$ or 580 Euro.

You've done an awesome job on all the changes, well done. Canyon looks great, but could you go for a 0 offset post and longer stem, that would really finish it off nicely. !!

Never ever, my friend! Have you seen that saddle position??? :smartass: If that is his ride position, how could you suggest a 0 offset post??? :noidea:

Btw, to see the Giant evolve was nice. But the Canyon is a whole lot more a race machine and more tech! :thumbup: In German forums, many people (enviers, in my opinion) complained about the trumpet-like downtube of the F10. I believe they simply couldn't believe the amount of tech for the bang and were looking for some justification why they had paid much more on their bikes compared to a Canyon. I always liked the brand and the design of Canyons, this one is no exception! :beerchug:

Two things I would change:
1) the wheels, but only for cosmetic reasons (I never liked the are-like spokes and the cut-outs in the rims), and
2) the bottle cage which looks too cheap/massive. I can recommend Tacx Tao. Depending on your budget, Arundel Mandible are an (UD) option too, and there are plenty of others from Bontrager, Elite, and so on...
My contribution to more beautiful roads: - old - / - new -
