Canyon XC – need to try one for size
Hi, Would anyone in Berkshire/Surrey area be willing to let me have a quick go on a Canyon XC. I’m not sure whether I need a Small or Medium. I have ridden Medium on Cube AMS, and that was comfortable, but sizing guide on Canyon’s site is recommending Small. I’ve seen a few forums where people have got the wrong size, and I don’t want to make an expensive mistake 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Hi CSW (if I can call you that?). I’m 5′ 9.5. No real oddities – inside leg is 32inches. online Canyon site recommended Small. I tried varying some of the sizes (everything except height) and it pretty much stayed with Small. I would be nervous about just going on that recommendation as I have ridden medium bikes before.Posted 5 years agokeefusMember
jamtart…..you is the same hight as me with the same inside leg measurement. I have a Canyon Nerve X9 in a medium and its perfect. I would willingly let you have a go on mine but live just a likkle bit too far away in Dorset. Sorry. Anyways buy one, they are bloody awesome bikes with kit you just wouldnt believe for the price.Posted 5 years agolucienMember
I ride a Canyon Nerve XC – in a large size. It is 19.5″ and I’m 5’11” tall – it’s quite large as well and good for XC riding – I’m in Southampton if you want to venture a bit further and have a ride although I would think the medium would be good if you like a “stretched” position and ride mainly XC or race XC, the small would be good if you want a bit more bouncy fun?
They do come up bigPosted 5 years ago
Thank you all for your comments.
Keefus, shame you’re not closer. Would have been ideal, and may also have got me spending more 🙂 currently thinking about the 7.0
Lucien, I do get the impression that they come up big. Think large will definitely be big for me. However, I do venture to So’ton on occasion. Might take you up on a meet if I havent’t made my mind up (if still ok with you) just to see the bike in the flesh.
Gribs and Karl1824 – my mind’s tellin me Medium, just need to be sure though b4 mailing the financial commitment…Posted 5 years agocouldashouldawouldaMember
Jamtart – you’re so close in dimensions to me I’d bet £1 of my own money that you are a actually a MEDIUM!
If its the wrong size / shade of black or whatever – Canyon do a 30 day refund thing. tbf I’ve never heard of anyone doing this but to me I took it as a 30 day test ride – no questions asked.
Also it comes with a longish stem as standard- if I had a shorter height / upper there’s at least an inch of change right there.Posted 5 years ago
