Head tube lengths are without i-lock. So 150mm for size M. The picture looks like a size L at least.

I agree that it looks like an L.

Has anybody ridden it or can compared it to other "aero" frames?
My only concern is the front end stiffness. It is strange that it hasn't bothered PRO riders to win big races and even more strange that Canyon hasn't addressed the (alleged) issue for next model year.

do pro rides always choose the stiffest frame?
seems a lot of the bmc team are choosing the slr01 over the stiffer impec

It would seem not to be the case since Gilbert chose the Aeroad over the CF Ult.


Any word on when CC will start selling Canyon?

Currently riding one in a size small, have to say I find it stiff enough, front is not soft . Using alloy bars/stem and training wheel (old helium high pressure with 25mm tyre) and had no problems when galloping on it. Seems like good value to me so far.

Pro riding involves sitting in a bunch for 6 hours a day, I would say keeping fresh and fatigue to a minimum is the key to winning big races, at the end of the day it's the guy who is least stuffed that usually takes the win.

I think the whole stiffness aspect is overblown and really just driven by bike frame makers to justify the upsell of a new frame.
