Very nice! Can you already provide some feedback on how it rides? Also interested in your opinion to the wheels

Wheels are stiff and light with loud freehub sound, the bike ist very fast on my first rides. It is my first carbon frame so i have no comparison to others than my aluminium-frame.

Looks like a Canyon Aeroad with a Pinarello Onda fork. Aero test in next number of Tour Magazine (Irony).

Yes, that's why I call it Canyarello :D

Very nice bike! Looks good and you put a lot of work in it. Good job!! There is just a little weird contrast between some rather heavy parts (frame, stem combo, crankset) and then a lot a WW details on screws and other small parts. Usually those are used when all the other parts are already rather light and the owner wants to chasr those last extra grams. But in the end, those small parts make for a good final weight for an aero and solid bike :thumbup:

I have a feeling this thing makes a satisfying sound when you lay down the power.

how do you like the wheels? what kind of braketrack is that?

Yeah, the sound is very bad and loud :) The wheels are very nice and light but they have a little bearing play. Braketrack is carbon with a thin fleece layer.

Very nice.

Did you add the chain stay protection or did it come that way?

So my frame showed up. Looks great. Just a have question if anyone knows of the OP knows.

In regards to the headset that was supplied, what are the thin metal washers for? Every headset I've installed is simple...fork race, lower bearing, top bearing, centering ring, and then the headset cap. Are the metal washers/spacers needed in this set up?

Edit...Nevermind... They are just small spacers.
