Nice bike.

Where did you get the 3mm dust cap for the headset?

Thanks!

Ordered the dustcap directly from Canyon.

Amazing red, 1000x better than their common black/ stealth decor.

For those who wanted black saddle and bar tape:

with Zipps

with Vision Metron 40 clinchers and Conti GP4000 II 25mm

Had to return the white saddle, due to warranty issue, and since I'm not running unmatched bar tape and saddle it will stay black for at least a month (or forever...).

Looks great with the ZIPPS and white bar tape! Best looking Canyon I have seen in a long time.

I'm normally not a fan of white tape and saddles, but your bike looks better (as in fully sick) with the white accessories.

Like.

How is 50/36 running with Etap? Currently running 52/36 on my Ultimate SLX with etap, and i am considering going 50/36 due to the terrain in Denmark. Congratulations on your nice bike.

50/36 is working fine. Having used 50/38 Rotor and 50/36 Praxis before it wasn't until I received the SRAM rings that I realised it is an "unfofficial" combo. But no issues with front shifting.

Keep the black bar tape and sadle and black wheels. The bike looks perfect like this.
White accesoires and gumwalls is too much.

Yes +1 for black but I would take the gumwall.

.... and my up-to-date signature, easily readable under all my posts puts this bike under the retired category. But i’ll pass all the advise along to the new owner ;-)

Are you selling the frame by any chance? :-)
