Another Canyon. My canyon.

My new Canyenero, which is an 8.0x model.

Pleased as punch with it. Especially the XO gearing, smooth light and noise free action. Beautiful.
So far changed the grips to some Superstars i had in the parts bin and put some Kevlar pads on it.

Not sure on the dropper, never had one and never needed one. Might get rid to make a quick buck.
At full extension the seats a tiny fraction to high, the cable routing gets in the way of the rear rocker arm when the seat drops and the switch on the handlebars is a matchmaker so i cant turn the bike over to work on it without removing the brake lever and shifter. Irritating.

Ordered and then delivered all in 5 days when i was told to expect a two week delivery. Perfect.

:D

    That is a truly bad censored looking bike! I was thinking of a Canyon, that colourway has made my mind up!

    That looks great.

    I ordered an 8.0X in the "raw" finish on Monday after having my Norco nicked a couple of weeks ago. I actually ordered the green first cos the raw wasn't available in medium for a few weeks, then the following day the website had updated saying both colours were available immediately so I changed my mind cos I thought the raw would be better to add colour to in future!

    The email confirmation said I can expect it in calender week 20 (week after next) - so I'm hopeful mine's quicker arriving too cos I've got quite a few days off work in the next couple of weeks and want to get out on it! :mrgreen:

    I got myself a Nerve XC 8.0 a couple of months ago. Cracking bike - just wish I had more time to ride it. I'm 6ft 2in and a large fits me perfectly. Can't recommend them highly enough - 5 days from ordering to my front door. They're also cheap at the moment because of the exchange rate (the Nerve XC 8 is £40 less than when I bought mine).

    Let me know how it feels, im about the same size and the online measuring guide says i should get a small, not sure if i should trust it or not before i order.

    It arrived today - fits like a glove. Glad I didn't order the small. Took me a while to get the cockpit set up (seat, bars, shifters, suspension) but it's spot on now that it's done. Buy it!
