Does anyone know when Canyon advertise a bike in the outlet section and they say "Bike with slight, but visible signs of wear and tear" are they worth buying or have they had too much hammer ?
Has anyone of you bought a bike from the outlet section, and how was the experience of buying from there ?
Is it worth going to Germany to see the bikes for sale in the outlet ?

    To be honest it's probably nothing more than scratched paint or paint defects. Equally they may have been bikes used as a demo bike at a show - not much wear and tear going on there. They wouldn't sell them if they were structurally 'compromised'. You could always enquire as to the exact nature of the 'wear and tear' for a given frame/bike.
