I tried sending a PM, but RRsport wasn't online since July. I'm interested in the size of this frame. Looks like an 58, but I'm not sure.

They don't come in "cm" - only in S, M, L and XL. This one looks like it could be size "L" like mine - or maybe size "M".

If you lived i CPH, you could stop by my place, and try mine - but I think "Fyn" is a little to far away for that :)

@majklnajt
I'm sorry but thats just never going to happen :) I'm too much in love with it.

@Juggler
Well, when I'm looking at Canyons Geo-sheet, it's says that M is similar to 56, and L is to 58.
My parents went to Copenhagen this weekend, but I chosed to stay at home. What a shame :) I've seen your Canyon also. (Great looking bike) I would believe that RRsport is a small size L user (182-186) While you probably are around 195. Correct me if I'm wrong.
The headtube looks a bit longer than the bikes featured at Canyons website. Which I believe is size M.

@munk93

When looking at the picture, it appears his saddle is around 5 cm lower than mine. Anyways, I am 187 cm with an inseam of 88 cm, and the size "L" fits me just perfect.

Feel free to let me know anytime you are in Copenhagen - then you can stop by and have a look.

@Juggler

Well, I missed your height pretty good there. Could you tell me the length from the top of the seattube to center of the rails, on your bike? I'm 187 too.

Length from the top of the seat tube to the center of the rails is 23,5 cm (and 25,5 cm from the top of the top tube). I doesn't look like that on the photo - but that is because of the angle of the camera :)

The seat post is constructed to give you quite a lot of adjustment possibilities regarding setback.

My stem is 110 mm by the way.

Ok, thanks for your help. If I'm going Canyon, I will probably replace the Canyon seatpost with the Enve 25 setback.

I am not sure you can fit the Enve seat post in the frame - it has an oval shape; and I guess it only takes the OEM seat post.

So if that is a show stopper for you - well the show is over :)
