I tried sending a PM, but RRsport wasn't online since July. I'm interested in the size of this frame. Looks like an 58, but I'm not sure.



Hi munk93, here I am, tride to reply to your pm, but seems that you are not alowing to receive pm's!
anyway, my bike is an L, same as 58, I am 1,88m and it fitts very good, great bike, but dont expect to much from the costumer service.

Thanks. I had a SLX before, so I know about their service.

I found their services pretty reasonable. I've been asking a lot of questions/ordering little parts here and there and once or twice I waited a few days but mostly the reply is 1-2 working days and what they do/say is within reason too I'd say.

I have only good experience with their service.

Twice I have ordered (and paid) a bike just prior to them lowering the price on the exact model. Both times I received a refund equivalent to the discount. Furthermore they once charged my creditcard too much, and when I contacted them, they returned the full payment, so I got the two geardrops for free.

Can any Canyon owners confirm that the seatpost allows the saddle to be tilted forward below horizontal?

I like to point the nose of my saddle down.

Many thanks.

Ushnikov - yes it allows tilt adjustment as you describe, in addition there is setback adjustment.

After being a lurker on WW for some time I thought I'd share my Canyon Ultimate CF SLX 9.0, as this was the thread that inspired me to buy one - that is after months of drooling :lol:

Mine is nothing out of the ordinary, just standard parts as purchased. I don't have any real plans for it, other than ride it lots :D Today's ride taken it over 1,000 miles since purchasing so she got treated to a nice clean and a photo.

This is one of my favourites :thumbup: what's the groupset? Thanks.

Looks like Dura Ace with a Fulcrum crankset... even though it's kind of like mixing up Shimano and Campa... :)

Looks like a shim so you can use the stem on a standard 1 1/8” steerer?

no, i dont think so.
Stack height of the wcs stem is 40mm and this is only around 15-20mm long and has no split to allow clamping.
so im pretty sure its not a shim....

I think it's just for transportation... somehow. I can't see any use for it at all though, cos as you say - it's too short to use as a shim and maybe even too thick.

I also got that strange shim in my wcs stem from Canyon. No idea what it is for but I just removed it and fit the stem as usual.
