I remember my canyon... i thought my teeth were going to fall off every time i rode the bike. D Germans like hard riding everything.

i wonder what this bike is like, how much it weighs, does it have pf30? not like i can get a canyon anymore, they dont sell to overweight suing americans. LOL

That seatpost :shock:

Constantly amazed by Canyon and their reluctance to either enter the US market or get back into the Australian one...

i think they will enter the market if they have incentive. though, if they are selling every bike they make, their is non. maybe if they want to expand production, they will.

is that seatpost available for sale individually?

Canyons were always somehow "ugly". This is even worst.

No, that's not what I meant. As I had no idea they were also available in the US.

Very strange they were there then pulled out...

Um, what is new here? :noidea:

That seatpost has been floating around in the design and proto phase for a long time and the frame seems unchanged, except for paint scheme.
