A good, stiff and light bike. It goes very well.
Yes, I wish I could say the wheels was mine, but I sometimes loan them from my brother. :oops:

Nice. Very sweet and sensible build. Nice brother, too.

What's up with the valve extender? Is it removable?

That canyon frame in that colour (or lack of) looks amazing. Looks live a very race orientated build? Maybe you could mattify your crank?

That's a slick build. All the components come together nicely and without clutter.

Nice!! The wheels look just right on the bike as well! What chainrings are those? I know the crankset is 7800, but the chainrings aren't, are they?

The valve extender was not supposed to be on the bike, but now its too late.

I ride U19/Juniors race in Denmark, so yes i am using the bike for racing.

The inner is some FSA 39, but the big ring is an old Shimano Biospace 52. Its not so agressive as an Q-ring or O-symmetric. But it is a little oval, and i think I get a little advance. And then it looks more normal.

nice bike! and i think it will do it´s work fine!
the biopace ring is locking special but good on that bike.
do you just put the valve extender on when you pump? cause i see no ventil in the frontwheel

Its a 58. I am 186 cm. When i am sitting on the bike I can clearely see the fronthub over the bar. Someone says that your sitting right when the bar is covering up the hub for your eyes. But I like having the bar sitting as low as possible and then sit more up(Bad english, i know :wink: )

@Extrasgrilli
Thanks :)

Well the bike is splittet right now, but when I look at the first picture in this topic, then I think that the DA crankset doesn't fit in at all. A Campanolo carbon crankset that is sanded and then some clearcoat, and a black set of chainrings.
But the is sold, and next year I am going back to my old alloy bike unless I get a contract with a team i am talking with at the moment. And then I will be Riding Kouta KOM :)

Hi there I'm interested in purchasing a Canyon bike either the CF SLX 8.0 or the model below which is pretty much the same. I don't know anyone that owns one so I'm really keen to hear from owners regards how the ride feels, how the bike has held up on rough roads (I live in Aberdeenshire Scotland and we suffer badly from potholes in the winter) and your general impression of Canyon. I appreciate the fact they can offer such good prices as they are purely on online retailer but there is something to be said for actually getting to see the product prior to committing. I'm up for buying one just looking for feedback. Hopefully I'll hear from you. Your bike looks fantastic by the way.
