You can't win if you don't finish. Never give up.
The inspiration was... drum roll please... basically a bottle of Stolichnaya
My crappy photos don't do it justice, so I'll get my "Better Half" on it with her real camera talent soon.
As pictured it comes in at just under 6.9 kg. Frame size is a 60
Basic build list:
Record 10 Ergos with Far and Near hoods
Record 10 RD and FD lightened up with bolts and pulleys. Chain catcher added up front.
Record 10 carbon square taper crank and BB
KMC 10X SL gold chain
Ciamillo ZG brakes
3T Ergosum Team bars
Lizard Skins 2.5 tape
Selcof MC00 Ti post
San Marco Squadra Ti saddle
Jagwire Switch housing with Campy shift cables and Jagwire Teflon brake cables
Speedplay Zero Track pedals
Arundel Dave-O cages
Campy Shamal Ultra wheels with Far and Near skewers
Veloflex Master 22 tires with Michelin latex tubes
I mounted the red and white Extralite saddle (with the embroidered pin-up girl) and it looked fantastic, but not exactly suited to my rear end comfort.
Tried white bottle cages too and it ended up looking cheesy, so I went back to the black.
Sadly, still no test report. Itching to try it out.
My measurements are close between 58 and 60. 1cm difference in inseam and trunk results Canyon's recommended size going from 58 to 60.
Regarding to competitive cyclist's calculator I should have 60. I'm 188cm.
Hope I'll add my Canyon's pics (in the excel looks promising just under 6kg finger crossed)
Hoping owners could, however, confirm the seat tube centre to centre measurements of a 54 frame in both the alloy and carbon options to assist with sizing selection before buying please.
