Afternoon all,

My new PX Pro Cartbon finally arrived last weekend. Went for the bling white look!

One decent ride (45 miles) and a couple of half hour tripettes so far and after moving up from the MTB with slicks it feels amazing!

    Looks great. Did you make any changes to the set up?

    Is it the sram rival set up?
    N2 - SW1

    Canyon Endurace 9.0

    Looks like shimano judging by the shifters

    IT is with the Ultegra set up.

    I upgraded the saddle to Fizik and tyres to gatorskins. I had it fitted at Triathalon Zone in St Albans so made sure i got the right bar widths / stem length etc and the right set up.

    Love it so far!
  • Enjoy the bike, and try to keep it clean this time of year please haha!

    I have the same frame - love it. I spend a lot of time cleaning it post ride!

    How are you finding it? Was thinking about one of these but was put off by comments about the Ribble frame (which I think is the same) being too flexy? I'm a fat git, and used to ride a Cannondale, so wanted something that could put up with my lard stomping on the pedals

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    I have one and a friend of mine has one, I am very light and he is 95kg, no flex issues on his frame or mine, the flex comment is garbage IMO. :)

    I am 15stone and it fdeels great. No undue flex so far so would agree that it shouldnt be an issue.

    I will reccomend it to anyone who will listen!!!

    It does flex - but not unduly. Hasn't put me off. New wheels have helped!

    I ordered mine on a saturday and it was delivered to the retailer two weeks later. No problems at all.

    apparently they are putting together around 150 bikes every week at the moment!!!!
