Hi weenies, I rode BH G6 almost 5 years and I was happy :) But there is a time for new bike. First I wanted disc, but then I realized that I care more about weight than downhill speed.
I bought Canyon (second hand, from France) with Ultegra Di2, without wheels. I am not sure about exact weight, but it is somewhere about 7.5 kg (heavy handlebars and seatpost). My plan is to swap the groupsets (I have Dura Ace Di2 on my BH G6), upgrade components and then sell BH.
I rode 100km and first feeling is - very comfortable. Frame triangle is much bigger than BH (I have Canyon in size S, BH was XXS) and top tube is 2 cm longer, but I have 1 cm shorter stem. I tried to make the same setup.
I originally wanted XS Canyon (I am 168 cm), but the seller made a mistake (he thought it is XS, but it is S).
And I won S-Phyre RC9 shoes on ebay today, things are going well :)
If anybod knows where to buy RD hanger (cheaper than 30 euro) or grommet for seatpost screw, let me know.

No sure about weight, but my previous bike was 7,2 kg, this one is lighter - around 7 kg. I want to change the seatpost and then I will post total weight.
I stripped Ultegra down (is for sale :) ) and get Dura Ace on.

Looks like the 2016 model. The 2017 silver frames have an orange detail on the top tube.

Sorry, what is your chainrings problem?
I ordered fishing scale, I will post the weight later.

And I ordered carbon seatpost from ebay, should be at 135g. Waiting for the package.
I bought KTM prime stem (102g in 80mm), but it is not compatible with fork :(

I'm looking for a lightweight seatpost and don't want to spend too much
