Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

  • A lot of bike for the money, quite like those new Canyon stems and ignore those squeaky brakes on the Mavics for a few miles
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
  • Good looking bike........great photo's!
  • Super bike and great picture. The 4th picture gives a lot of Cervelo Squoval idea. Great bike,really,I'll move to Canyon aswell for my future road bikes needs .

    It's funny. they actually clashed 4-5 years ago over the whole seat tube arrangement. Canyon said it was theirs, Cervelo said they thought of it. They hired lawyers. What did the clever folks do who run the 2 companies? Canyon 'let' Cervelo borrow the round to square ST and for that Cervelo let Canyon use one of their ideas.

    If only the world was run by cyclists eh?

    I like the new stem cover. I have a 2014 frame and it only came with the Arcos c0ckring which I don't like the look of, unless I want to fill my steerer with Marguerita, and straw and play some Jimmy Buffet.
    The titifers have sung their song.

    Now it's time for sleep.

    That is a beautiful looking bike and exceptional value for money, had they been in my lbs I would possibly have bought one over a recent Tarmac purchase. Enjoy.
