Haha, thank god you didn't! You only see half my collection on the photos, but I promise there's no Celine Dion between Dexy's Midnight Runners and The Doors.

Hi Rasmusic!

Loving the Canyon! Great selection of parts too to make a great looking bike. How are you liking the new Antares? Im trying one for the first time and its feeling pretty awesome. Almost on the verge of replacing my entire crew of ariones.

And that stem? -17 with the 1 and 1/4th steerer. Its the first time Im seeing one in the flesh. How much did it cost to order it from Canyon? I need one my self.

PS: I used to live in Norway and might be on my way back. Great country!

Please tell me that you are going to sand down the post to finish off the killer build. It sort of stands out now.

And even cooler would be to just sand the FSA part off, leaving the VCLS by Canyon bit, could be done with some masking and careful sanding?

@aerozy: I love the Antares. I've actually already replaced my own "crew of ariones", and waved good bye to all saddle sores. I think the stem was €75.

Btw: :welcome: to Norway if you decide to move back :D

@BmanX & Murphs: I've actually considered it, but then also sanding down the graphics on the handlebar, and maybe the pedals ... Perhaps I'll do it someday I'm bored :)

Nice looking ride! :D
Almost wish i'd gone for the matt black.
Have to try to get one of those -17 deg stems too

Anyone with any Kinks in their collection has gotta be ok in my book :lol:
