Cockpit integration might be the only thing. It already had really good tire clearance for its generation. Easily fits 31-32mm measured tires. Everything else would be minor like adding tabs around disc calipers, a deeper seatpost/seattube, etc.

What's wrong with the current generation? Lighter than most other aero bikes, rides great, and looks awesome! Only seems dated to some because it's been here a while. People would applaud it if it were new... Why change for the sake of changing?
Still tests well and its not like a ton of aero bikes has put in down further on the test results list either.

Plus, let's milk the old moulds for every penny they are worth!

Others say at the end of this year, which I totally agree its about due. 5 years is along time. Sort of reminds me of Tarmac SL frame geometry lifecycle... that was a long stretch with that design and to only just make an internal seat post change and call it "rider first engineering" was boring.

It wouldn't surprise me if Canyon waited until later this summer to release the new Aeroad with MvdP when he races the World Championships.

They might, but it would be rather stupid. TdF lasts three weeks, is widely followed, and they'd have a lot of team bikes on display. The Worlds would give nowhere near the same media/marketing impact.

Tdf would make sense, but they do a yearly big sale then. But by the time of the worlds they can have MVDP winning on the new bike!

If nothing else, they need to add cockpit integration or it will fall by the wayside. People expect this on their gravel bikes these days, on an Aero bike it will be mandatory going forward

How do people travel with all these integrated cables on bikes now? I'm thankful that my Aeroad has external brake hoses, as I would otherwise have to look for quick-connect fittings to be able to undo them...

I was wondering the same, could be a PITA with some bikes with completely hidden cables/hoses/wires...

I travelled with Propel Disc by Scicon Aerocomfort 3.0. Yep there's a risk but I did it many times without issue. YMMV.

Just leave enough slack in the hoses when cutting them down and unclamp your bars/stem as you normally would? The only issue would be if you want to travel with something like an Orucase Ninja which requires complete removal of the fork.

Same. Well, only travelled once with the new disc brake bike so far but no issues. I do take the extra few minutes to remove the rotors though to make it less likely they take a hit and go out of true.

Pretty sure it's coming soon, many bikes are getting soldout without adding a date on when they will be coming back!!

Doubt they will release this summer given they've missed the traditional TDF launch window. Probably lining up for next year, sales on the Aeroroad must be pretty low now given the time it's been on the market

I'm not so sure, I know a few people have picked one up recently and they have not long released the "cheaper" lower grade carbon model.

Only thing I can really think of improving on it is the cockpit - they don't need to go fully integrated but they could do with doing something with the disc brake cables especially.
