The default seat post for ordered bike is:
Canyon VCLS Post (25 mm Setback).

I have 3 alternatives for changing:
Canyon VCLS Post (15 - 35mm Setback)
Canyon VCLS Post 2.0
Canyon VCLS Post 2.0 (25 / 13 mm Setback)

I m considering just the first one, as the others are quite expensive, about 130E.

So, what are your thoughts? Many thanks!

It like the looks of the total package, and I prefer it over the stock Ultegra and FSA cranks :P

Hi everyone, i have followed this thread for almost a year, hoping to have some info about Canyon, which has been great.
Finally in December I ordered my bike, an Aeroad ultegra Di2 2013, and arrived without any delay to my country Honduras, CentralAmerica.
By mistake of me I ordered a Medium size, thinking it was 54cm, but noticed at unpacking it was a 56cm, so imagine my dissaponting.
I immediately contacted Canyon, and see what option I have, and they were very positive as agree to send frame to them for replacement. Here comes to negative issue. Since I live in Honduras, contacted UPS here and there fee to Germany was almost usd $900.00 just one way. I was shocked. Contacted again Canyon and offered to me they will arrange all shippings at their cost. At this moment my frame is on the way to Canyon, and expecting to arrive next week.
Love Canyon bikes, and at first I was risking a lot because the lack of LBS for the brand in my country, I thought all my chances were gone. Very impressed with the attitude taken by Canyon, especially Mr. Marc Patmuss, who is taking care of my case.
Hope this experience can give some idea to all readers of good service at Canyon.

Is the stack/reach on their geometry chart accurate?
Picture seems to show that the stack includes the 16mm top cap, but if included that would make for a silly low axle to crown on fork?

Would like to see how far from the crank that saddle is. Must be a short one. :)

I thought they were able to hide the battery also. Are the tubes too small?

Hi guys, wondering if anyone has fitted open pave 27mm on 2012 canyon cf road bike? I have 25s and they are a lot narrower than other 25s like Durano for example.
