Nice bike you've got yourself! I love this duo-color paint scheme. BTW what was wrong with the customer service?
A light bike does replace good fitness.

Wow that Aeroad is nice!! I'd love a Canyon. Wish I was taller, they've got some good deals on bigger sized previous year models with Lightweights on the outlet section of the website.

@RRsport - I really like your Aeroad. What's the weight?

Looks like a 56cm based on where the seat-stays join the seat-tube in relation to the top-tube (if that makes any sense!).

Thanks! :thumbup:

I also think so, seeing other similar pics of Zabel riding it.

That is sick! Is that a Berner rear mech I spy? How do you get on with your Pro VT-1s? Do you get a slight bulge in the braking surface at the valve holes?

Nice bike :thumbup:

I called Canyon to order one on Monday, but they couldn't deliver it until mid March :cry:

When did you order yours ?

Wevergo2, nice to see that someone else has what appears to be a rubberband on the RH drop of the handlebar.

I ordered the frame set in the Netherlands. (Dutch Canyon site)
It is a discounted/outlet frame model, 2011.
Delivered within one week. :thumbup:
New models will be delivered later, you need a lot of patience :(
