Completely stock, save for an SRAM Quickview out-front Garmin mount and Look Keo Blade pedals. And a nametag decal, I suppose.

I got it on sale in the Fall, when the 2015 models began hitting the website. Added the VLCS 2.0 seatpost for the comfort.

Tips the scale at 6,1 kg - it really is a featherweight.

Haven't really ridden it yet, save a 3 km test-run, but the geometry is the same as my old bike. Hopefully, it'll see me through La Marmotte this summer in style.

  • It's a Large in Canyon terms - the geometry is essentially identical to my Focus Cayo size 56.
  • Great frame, great specification, great bike - enjoy!
  • Man,that is one stunning bike. Just bought a Canyon Spectral 29 and boy I'm getting hitched to this brand.

    Please tell me more : size L you've said, how tall are you ?

  • I'm 185 cm - so just around 6 feet.

    It's a full SRAM Red 22 Gruppo, with the VCLS seatpost which is supposed to act a bit like a leaf spring, reducing road buzz. I haven't ridden it very much yet, so the jury's still out there. The R-SYS SLR wheels are unbeliably zippy though. Not a lot mass to get moving when setting off, at least compared to my Cosmic Carbone SLs. I have a Garmin 500 I'll stick on there when I begin riding it (black and red, of course :) ).

    I get to giggle like a little girl on occasion, whenever I need to move it around the apartment. It's just so damn light.

    I really ought to get a 100 mm stem (it comes with an 110 mm), but I want to see if I can't get used to being slightly more extended - I've trained a lot more since I got fitted for my old bike, including a lot of core work.
