Hello,

As there is little of the 2021 models still available, I am wondering if there are any rumours circulating about which new frames/next gen of existing frames we might see for the 2022 season (I don't care that much about whether it has the new or old Shimano groups).

From what I heard so far, Scott is likely bringing the next gen of the Addict (non-RC, their endurance model), with Foil getting updated just for this year, I think it will remain unchanged (except for colours, which are really nice this year, hence I would take a Foil 10 medium frameset in a second if there was any stock left).

Cannondale seems to be testing a new TT bike (there were photos on the forum already).

But what else can we expect in terms of new and updated frames?

Best

Konstantin

2022 means Colnago 68th year in business if I'm correct -> Colnago C68 !

Canyon have a new model of the Endurace in the works (the seatpost patent from last summer that everyone was talking about for some reason a few weeks ago was confirmed to be for the Endurace), and given the similarities between the two currently that might mean a new Ultimate

Id expect Canyon to release a new Endurace model for 2022 for several reasons
1. Its their oldest model currently on sale
2. The s shaped seat post is apparently for the new Endurace, not the Aeroad
3. When I tried to look at stock for a friend their website said the model was sold out and being replaced
4. I bought one late last year for a training bike which means that it will be guaranteed to be updated and knowing my luck the new model wil be available as a CFR and will be nice and aero too....probably too good for a training bike though

My god, Canyon is really going for the odd complex over-engineered solutions instead of simple designs (e.g. use Merida Reacto's design instead of the Aeroad solution). As if it hasn't bitten them in the bum by now. I really liked them and was seriously considering to get a Canyon, but I really don't want to be a beta tester for something that one of their engineers came up with, without thinking it through.

That's the thing Canyon's Aeroad and proposed Endurace seatpost designs aren't overengineered for what they are...they're neither here nor there.

Simple would be a traditional seatpost.

Overengineered would be Trek's IsoSpeed with an additional structural member elastomers, pivots, sizeable clamps/wedges, etc. There's a reason why the Madone seatpost clamp uses two bolts instead of one.

Either works, just don't compromise.

Time might have a new frame to compliment Alpe D'Huez. My guess is an updated Skylon with lower drag.

Pinarello F14?
Pinarello K10 successor?
Bianche Oltre XR5
Giant Trinity Disc?
Trek Speedconcept Disc?
Pinarello Bolide TT Disc?
Colnago Kone Disxc?
Cube Aeriun Disc?

Can't really see these age old rimbrake bikes be made for another year. Don't know if Pinarello will release a K10 successor with Paris Roubaix still questionable, but that bike is outdated as well.
Open WI.DE (2019) - 8.5kg
Specialized Shiv TT Disc (2020) - 7.9kg
Specialized SW Æthos (2021) 6.4kg
Trek Émonda SLR9 (2021) 6.9kg

*all weights include pedals, computer mounts, speed sensor, and bottle cages.
Sold: SW Venge, S5 Disc, Roubaix Team

Trek have said that they arent going to bother to release a "new" SC just for the sake of releasing a new bike unless it is a substantial improvement on the current bike and seeing as how the current version is still competitive with the current crop of "superbikes" we may be waiting a while for a new SC

With Trek apparently releasing a 75mm version of their RSL wheels, that are Disc only, I really see them on a speed concept...

R5 on dropped stays.

Will be interesting to see if anyone follows Spesh’s lead and consolidates the road bike range. I’m thinking maybe not because there are new design changes possible with the UCI update recently, so some more features to squeeze a stray watt or two out of there and keep the pure aero category open, for now at least.

I think we are at the point now though where you can tell if a road bike is being gimped to not cannibalise its aero flagship. Just looks cynical if a road bike doesn’t have a strong aero feature set.

That would be both super and terrible since I only just got my 2021 C64 this past December. :lol:
