    Ultegra and RS80s as a winter ride?

    What is the world coming too!? :mrgreen: (although relative to your C59 its an entirely appropriate winter bike :wink: )

  • nice. Just ordered a frame and fork this weekend in team white, going to look like great with the lightweights that are on the way too. Just need to order the Campag SR11 now. Should be a great bike to ride and looking forward to getting back onto Alu.

  • Hi Markyone,

    Great looking winter bike!
    Lusting for a Canyon myself too, especially the new 2013 range.

    Just out of interest & if you don't mind me asking, what height are you?
    I'm trying to see what size would be best for me if I do buy one. :-)

    Cheers
  • I bought one last week, they have a sizing guide on the site. You put In all your measurements and it tells you what size, it's not just down to height :)

    How tall are you? Happy with how it fits?
  • Thanks Taylorhawkins,

    I actually know what size I need, all my rides have always been with a 535mm top tube, so I would take a Canyon small in size.
    I have put in all my measurement into the size chart but it suggested a different size than I thought fitted me. So I'm just trying to gather some extra info. from those who have experience in Canyons, that's all!

    Dread to think all my rides have been the wrong size for me. :-(

    Cheers
  • Sorry didn't mean it in a bad way, I'm about 181cm in height with 88cm on inseam, they told me a large if that helps you at all?...

  • No worries, Taylorhawkins!

    Thanks for your sizing info. I just wish all bike brand have uniform sizes!

    By the way, I like your ride too. The Roadlite Al is one of my list of considerations.

    Cheers
  • Done 260km on mine this week, which ever one you get you will not regret it! I love mine!
