I have had this bike on order since November, and it has an ETA of March. However, Canyon keep changing the listed weight on the site.

https://www.canyon.com/en/road/ultimate ... 0-di2.html


When I ordered it, it was listed as 7.0kg. After I ordered it, it went to 7.8kg a few days later, so I contacted them and have an email from them which assures me the site was mistaken and the actual weight is 7.0kg, +/- a few grams, for a medium frame.

I checked again this week and it is listed now at 7.5kgs, with all the same components. I have tried contacting them again twice, to get clarification, but no response.

I knew when I ordered a Canyon to not expect much in terms of promised ETAs or customer service, so I'm rolling with it, but I would love to know the actual weight of this bike, delivered, in a Medium frame. With/without pedals, I don't expect you to take them off :D

I have a nice 2016 Defy that weighs in at 8.0kg, so if the Canyon is similar weight I'll be disappointed. The top end TCR comes with Duraace power meter and is sub 7kg, thinking to cancel the canyon and go that route if it is near 8.

Thanks!

I've had one for about a month.
With the stock DT Swiss wheels it was about 7.2-3ish I think

I bought a 8.0 Ultegra Di2 recently. It was listed at 7.8 with the ridiculous magic wheels. With Speedplay pedals, garmin mount, bottle cages, it actually weights 7.5KG.

I'm sure yours will be pretty close to 7kg, with the lighter wheels and groupset.

What is the ETA of the top end TCT with DA powermeter?

Thanks mate! How have you found it? Did you do anything to lighten it?

Unsure, I haven't enquired. I have been looking for other options, because, well I am finding the Canyon experience a little frustrating and my 4 month delay has given me plenty of time to window shop.

It's about 2k dearer than the Canyon here but when you consider I want to add a power meter to the Canyon, and sub 7kg it's looking like a reasonable alternate.

The availability of the DA powermeter though seems non existent, so unless there's a stock pile in our country's distributor warehouse, i imagine not soon.

Absolutely loving it!
Ive changed the wheelset to the Roval CLX50 Discs - amazing and way lighter than stock (1450ish grams)
Also running them tubeless with Schwalbe Pro Ones
I think with the wheel swap, adding cages pedals etc its 7.2kg

If you went with a lighter seatpost, bar/stem you could definitely get it below 7
