Canyon Ultimate CF SL owners (in the NW?)
I’m in the same boat. I think I’ve almost decided on one for my next bike.
I contacted Canyon Uk who told me to keep an eye out of facebook etc as they might be having some UK Demo days on various models.
Would also be interested in any reviews etc. From what I’ve found on the web they all seem pretty good.Posted 3 years agoCrellMember
Got the SLX and Im really impressed with it. Have you seen the endurace? They look great and a bargain to boot. Canyon however were the worst company Ive ever dealt with.
Im 5 10, it’s M and pretty stretched with the std stem. SL is a little shorter IIRC, but not much.Posted 3 years agosteviousMember
Have had one for a few months now. Compared to my previous bike (a ribble alloy/carbon monstrosity) it’s incredibly light, stiff and responsive. Just go and read any bike mag review of a good road bike and all the clichés they use are true.
The main difference it’s made to me is that it’s so much more comfortable than my old bike. I’d be feeling pretty uncomfortable after about 100kms on the Ribble but am feeling much fresher by the end of long rides.
EDIT: I’m on the SLX, if that makes any difference.Posted 3 years ago
Thanks, I’m shorter than you Crell but have a longish body. I’d be surprised if a medium was too big for me.
I saw the Endurace yeah. The extra tyre clearance would be nice, but I’d prefer Mavic Ksyrium wheels and I reckon 25mm tyres will make the SL comfy enough for me.
The CF SL will be back in October apparently, and I’m happy to wait for the right bike.Posted 3 years ago
New bikes are up on site, delivery estimated mid-Sep to early Oct.
Motherflippers have put £100 on the price though.
Hmmm, grey or black?Posted 3 years agocbrsydMember
Had one for about a month now.
Can only compare it with an old Ribble alloy winter trainer and a two year old steel framed Charge Juicer.
It’s so much stiffer and more responsive than either. Looks good, handles and brakes better and is faster everywhere. I spec’d it with the VCLS 2 seatpost and it’s also more comfortable than either of the other two bikes (much more so than the Ribble).
Still like the Juicer and will keep it as a winter bike but the Canyon is better in every way. It did cost twice as much but money well spent and provided it fits you I would recommend it to anyone.Posted 3 years ago
