Can anyone post photos of his own canyon ultimate AL slx?
I'm interested in buy one but there are not many photos from different angles.
I'm interested in seeing the bike from behind, tyre clearance, and from the non-drive side.
(better if it's recent, but I don't think the AL version changed much lately)

Thanks!

You'll probably find it somewhere in the thread below, 130 pages of Canyon photos. :D

My 2016 Ultimate AL SLX 9.0SL
A few adds and changes here and there.
Mavic wheels to Reynolds Assault/Strike Combo with XG1190 11-25
and change into Aerocockpit, cut steerer tube all the way down.
Its a small but a good 7.1kgs with HT pedals and bottle cage added.
:) :P

Here's my 2016 Ultimate AL SLX 9.0, size S. Swapped out the 90mm Canyon stem for 110mm Zipp Service Course SL OS.

Weight including bottle cages is 7.7kg.

Coming upgrades:

- Mavic Ksyrium Elite -> DT Swiss PR 1400 Dicut Oxic
- Fizik Antares R5 -> Fabric ALM Ultimate shallow saddle
- deciding if I want to keep steerer length to maintain flexibility

Any tips for shaving a few more grams?

@arnoldagdagan Beautiful! What components did you start with and how did you get the weight down? :)

The SL was originally 7.1 kgs small size without pedals out from the box.. today its 7kgs total, in order I started with;
- HT titanium pedals
- Wheelset Reynolds Assault/strike combo
- Tune lightweight skewers
- H11 aerocockpit, slammed and cut the steerer tube.
- ceramic bearings, pulley, BB, hubs
- finally the VCLS 2.0 seatpost
O and made my own lightweight garmin mount..

Awesome. But it seems we started off with very different components, so that may be why.

I'm on Ultegra 6800 (52/36, 11-28) and you're on SRAM Force, right?

I did start with the SForce, I'm pretty happy with the weight out of the box, the SRAM choice was because of the weight difference between the model with Ultegra..
