Hopefully Santa will be in time then!

Please post pictures when you've received it. I am contemplating the same frame but need some real world pictures to fully convince me.

I've just ordered the same AL frame, size xs in team white. Expected delivery in Jan 2013. Should build into a nice bike with lightweights and Campag SR11.

Still waiting for the final delivery date on my Speedmax... :(

Just received a letter from Canyon today. They are very sorry about the delay... so they offered me a T-shirt as compensation... :D

The groupset is full Dura Ace, using Fulcrum RS torque crankset.

It has been completely faultless, and got me a win in my local club hill-climb back in October!

Looks like my Ultimate AL has landed here in Dubai and i should receive it very soon. It has the press fit BB and i'll need to order the correct adapter for the BB. I've read some reviews about them and a lot mention that they have issues with 'creaking'. Is this the norm? and what should i do to prevent it?

Finished this a couple of weeks ago. Frameset and cranks are new. Rest is from my Cervelo R3SL except for some parts. Winter and snow means that test ride will have to wait. Will get some better pics with other wheels some day.
Specs in short:
Canyon ultimate CF frameset sz 54
Campy record 10 speed, except shifters that are Chorus.
Sram Red crank w Stronglight Ct2 rings 50/39
Specialized Romin w carbon rails
3t ergonova team bars
Zipp 303 w Continental Sprinters
