Thanks. Does the Aeroad come with EW-SD300 cables or the older EW-SD50 cables? Need to know which tool to buy :-) Not that I'm in a rush, still no payment e-mail from Canyon...
EW-SD50 for 11 speed, and the hoods are indeed fitted with the buttons on top as standard. They are pretty well hidden, just on top of the shifter.
Great, thanks a lot!

If there is a connection in the headset you won't need to unwrap the tape just undo the head set and pop it in there

I dont know sorry.

From what ive heard the people in europe with other sizes will be waiting quite a bit longer. dont expect anything this month.
Customer Service in Belgium told me earlier this week that all Aeroads in all sizes should be shipped by end of November... fingers crossed!

I don't believe anything they say anymore. The chat guys don't have a clue what the factory is doing

I have little faith in the customer chat knowledge base as well. I'm just over here waiting on my refund to show up so I can get a check cut. Then wait for the new stuff to come out eventually.

Unfortunately, I saw on the FB group that there was a CFR delivered new and unridden with a couple of cracks on the underside where the Di2 battery mounts.

You guys are making each other crazy with these things all the time.

What percentage of the Canyon owners would actually be on Facebook? And what percentage that is on FB would actually post about their bike? Most likely the vasstttt minority.

Canyon can't afford another big manufacturing issue and if cracked frames would be a systematic issue, there would already long be a recall.

Either sit in for the ride and wait for your fabulous bike, or jump ship and go for a safe option (to only discover that all manufacturers can have problems (Tarmac SL7 is a nice example...).

This was my thinking all along until now. You are right

brusknl, did you get your bike back yet ?

get bike will collect mine today. They gave me a phone call in the morning to see if i was available PM ... :roll:

P.S. : I've ridden approx 8000Km with it, if the frame isn't cracked i guess it "should be ok"
Not yet. It was collected on Friday by Get Bike Service.

Received an email from Canyon on Monday, that my bike has arrived at the servicing workshop.

I've ridden approx 6000km.
Bike is still at GetBikeService. I've called them to ask for an update. They told me that the work is completed, but Canyon needs to approve the repair "after checking photos".

But Specialized fixed this issue quick and without (much) delay.....Canyon is really pushing it imo; I still haven't heard anything from them regarding changing the bars. But they probably don't care that Canyon owners complain on fora, their bikes will sell anyway :twisted:

Contact with canyon then. All I know is that there's kits based on bike size and started with bigger ones.
Mine is an XS scheduled for this week.

Has anyone waiting for an order heard anything in the past one or two weeks? It seems like there was a wave of bikes being delivered, and since then nothing :?
