Anyone own a Canyon ultimate slx
How tall are you to be considering a medium?
I’m 6 foot and keep trying not to look at the Ultimate CF SL frame set. Right between medium and large on their calculator but the medium is 4mm longer than my current bike, which fits well. So I’d put 6′ at the top end of medium. Interested in feedback too.Posted 3 years agopinder318Member
Im 6’2 and have a large frame as said previously the top tube is longer than most. The bike is spot on for stiffness and comfort and you wont find many lighter. Be careful with getting the right size as you cant just swap stems round to fit as its got a 11/4 steerer. Which leaves ritchey and giant overdrive2 stems. You wont regret getting one.

In Majorca airport as we speak, just done 300mls in 4 days on my slx. I’m 6ft with a 33″ inside leg. Large for me with a 120mm stem. The size guide said medium but that wouldn’t have been right for me. Not unless I was racing with a 140mm stem.Posted 3 years ago
Bike was great by the way, couldn’t have been happier with it.
SLX in majorca you lucky person .
what’s it like on the long climbs?
Bikes great on the climbs, its me who’s a bit $%£& going up. Descends like a rocket as well 😀 Sure footed, responsive but still feels stable and holds a line really well. Pretty comfy on some of the rougher lanes to.Posted 3 years agopoppersMember
Also fingers crossed nothing goes wrong with it – my other half having a nightmare with his (different canyon bike to the one you’re interested in) Bike is 4 months old and has been ridable for 2 following 3 major faults including frame failure. Canyon have had the bike 6 weeks and still can’t tell us when it will be fixed/replaced etc. apparently their mechanics are too busy. FFS.Posted 3 years ago
