Aren't some of the new models already on sale now? Probably depends on which model you are after?

Just found out that for some reason (must be something with registered brands), Canyon sells it's bikes with special paint schemes (model name decals instead of Canyon decals) in Suisse: if you want a unique Canyon.
They have some outlet bikes with this paint schemes available in Belgium too.

Anyway, 2 days after I received my Aeroad frame, it's now 100euro cheaper...

Honestly from experience it's good to have something like as it tends to be the only thing wrong. Often if you try changing you will get something else that might well be worse than before! :D

Saw an Aeroad in real life and it's almost spooky as to how thin its cross section is!

one of the best bike i've ridden in my life...climbing is springs to life once u slammed on the pedal....very stiff on the BB but yet comfortable.

better than S-Works SL3 in my opinion that i had 3 years ago until recently.

6.32 kg....
Saddle change from Selle SLS to Specialized Romin Evo Pro
Wheelset Ksyrium Elite S to LW Meilenstein.

Photos were taken in the same route of Tour De Langkawi climbing stages called Bentong, Malaysia.

Tall Canyonists, hear hear!

Are there any fellow giants who are currently riding a 3XL Canyon Ultimate CF SLX who could post some images?

I am considering switching to one (currently riding a CAAD10), but as Canyon's policy is by-order-only, I have never seen how the CF SLX looks like in such a large size. Therefore, would like to see how one looks like before purchasing..

I just got myself a Canyon Ultimate CF. I built it up with titanium Campagnolo Super Record.
It's a nice bike to ride, much smoother than the Felt F4 I had before it.
I'm chasing a -17 degree stem for it

Here's a crappy pic

Here's a better pic of it with Fulcrum Racing Speed tubs. It weighs 6.6kg(measured with bathroom scales) with the tubs, bottle cages and Garmin mount as it is in the pictures.

Handlebars are 3T Ergosum pro, saddle is a Bontrager Paradigm RXXXL, Garmin Vector power meter, Ritchey 120mm stem -6 degree (I'm looking for a -17 degree).


Edit: for those who have PM'd me, sorry I can't reply for some reason

Posted this in the Gallery so i thought it may as well be here too. I upgraded a few parts from my original build to improve it, which i think i have managed to do....i think its near perfect for me.

* Sram Red to 9070 Di2. Had to be a retro fit as the frame was not set up for Di2. I cut, soldered and heat shrunk the wires then hid them in the BB. I thought this would be the hardest part of the build but it turned out to be very simple
* Easton EC90SL clinchers/Continental to Reynolds 46/Vittoria Corsa
* Easton EC90SL stem +/-10 to Easton EC90SL 0 degree
* Custom Paint with new Canyon decals
* Nokon Cables for the brakes
