Hi folks. Got my eye on the new Canyon Endurance CF. It looks a beauty but i decided to spruce it up a bit with Photoshop.
I doubt i will be buying Aero wheels, i just grabbed the first bluish wheels of Google.

As you can see it looks a lot better..Well it does to me anyway

Tell me what you think

    The original one looks better, the other one looks like a bike from The Fast and the Furious.

    Hehe. it wasnt too serious a consideration. was just a bit bored and wondered what it would look like with a bit more blue in. i think the aero wheels are too much :lol:

    Now why did you go to the trouble of cutting the wheel out behind the chain but leaving it in front of the chainstay!* :lol:

    * I promise not to say anything about the calipers though!

    Good eye! it was a test to see who would notice first.

    you get first prize :mrgreen:

    But seriously, what does one think of the new canyon endurance? Has it tempted others like its tempting me 8)

    its tempting yes.

    The 105 one will be interesting as the new 105 is virtually Ultegra 6700 and looks better !
    Shame its missing the internal cable on the chainstay - like that.

    Its up against the German Rose Xeon CGF Endurance range however and they are lighter with better customisation options (and internals :lol: ).

    Is that a Matte white? I don't like Rose's shiny paint.

    At OP, I don't think it looks that bad, feel the rims are a bit overly deep though :)

    Supposed to be pretty similar to the Ultimate CF except for longer seatstays and headtube to give it more stable handling and less aggressive position. So, if the Ultimate CF bikes are anything to go by it should be very good.

    Think the Xeon GF and CGF Endurance bikes are all shiny paint apart from the Black Aluminium GF.

    Looking on the site they do have some matte options depending on the models.


    Personally like shiny paint - easy to clean !

    what does "custom" have to do with that? b/c you changed the bar tape?

    so if I remove 1 plastic valve cover off my otherwise stock bike, does that make it custom?

    no one knows what custom means any more.

    Surely you do?
    I'd like to think I do.
    I think you just mean the OP doesn't.
