Loving the color and ready finally order!
Are you going to order this new color ?
I'm afraid of being bored to this color so I'm hesitating with the white one... :noidea:
To be fair, as long as it's not offending (or a red hue) I'm open to most colors. So it's not critical to me. However I love pale blue/green/turquoise tones and this seems to be right up my alley. Of course I'd need to see to full bike first but right now it's the color I will order.

However it's not the color I was waiting for - it's the updated spec, which is much more important to me.

So I finally ws able to take my CFR out yesterday. First time having a road bike since the end of December. The bike just reminded me how there is no substitute for a fast road bike even though I have been getting PR's and KOMs on my gravel bike (with 28/30 tires on). It is so fun.

Then I almost immedietly crashed into a back of a van that had stopped on a blind corner because of an accident on a steep descent.

Everything seems to check out except for a scratched brake hood and pedal. However, as I was finishing my descent it seems like I couldn't control the bike and brake as well as before. Could this have to do with locking up the wheels hard (twice)?

Rotors don't appear glazed, but haven't checked the pads. Handlebar is straight. Wheels are spinning true and no broken spokes.

Maybe just my jitters?

I predicted a 500 euros price increase months ago. It became 800. djees.

I must say, the Aeroad CF SLX 7 Disc eTap at 5000 euro one is a steal (component wise).

But it must be the ugliest bike I have ever seen :lol: :lol: :lol:

I like the Pale Green. Unfortunately too heavy at 8,22 Kg.

I was talking about the Salsa. The green is not my cup of tea, but it's ok.

The salsa is just... yuck. :lol: :lol: :lol:

(of course this is my opinion, if anyone here likes that color scheme, please don't be offended)

the new Canyon Aeroad CF SL seems nice tough. Also nice colors.
Altough I am not sure if the ARC1600 is worth the 200 euros extra over the Reynolds AR58/62 wheelset (which I have and adore)

What do you guys think? are the ARC1600 worth the 200 euros extra?

Edit: there is a power meter included. I stand corrected. It is worth the 200 euros extra. absolute steal

Double edit: is there a power meter included? I don't see it in the component list of the Canyon Aeroad CF SL 8

800€ price increase for extra PM + new Shimano is pretty insane but whatever...
Ordered the white, the pale green is nice but I prefer a safe color.

Yeah, I'm sure that one will be available way longer than the other colors.

Boy, I'm beyond disappointed. A significant price increase and no availability at all in my size 2XS. The waiting continues.

I am disappointed by the price as well, I was expecting something around 6000-6200€. At least, it is now available and got the size I want.

Looking at pictures, the L is most certainly there.

I don't see the R one tough

All pictures are without the black plastic cap on teh seatpost clamping bolt... makes me wonder: did anything change in the clamping mechanism to prevent the creaking issue that some people (incl myself) are experiencing...?
Sorry to say for those waiting to order but I'm now even more happy with my 11 speed black CF SLX di2 at 5699euro...
