I am just in the middle of buying a Canyon Speedmax and we are trying to figure out the size, M or L. I am a pretty tall guy with a smaller torso, here are my measurements:
Arm length: 64cm
I currently have a size M Merida Warp Tri 2015 (has sizes S M and L as well). I look a little bit big on the bike but seems to fit ok, I have posted a photo of myself as a reference, taken at IM African champs 2 weeks ago. I see points of improvement in position though, going for a more aggressive posiition.
My stack and reach are the following:
Armpad Stack: 647
Armpad Reach: 445
My reach is a little low, but I might be sitting a little bit too back on the bike. I see you might need a pad x and y. I am unfortunately away from my bike for like a week, but I can provide how I measured it, that might help:
My bike was standjng in front of the wall, facimg backwards to it. ( not touching, just close).
For the armpad stack that is irrelavant, but needed for the reach. the measuerements:
Stack: pady from floor - Bb y from floor = 95cm - 29.3cm = 647mm
Reach: padx from wall - bbx from wall= 127.5cm - 83.3cm= 442mm
Hope this helps
Inititally they wanted to give me an L but after all of the discussions and providing them my current stack and reach they changed their opinion to M. Based on the numbers it looks ok, itâ€™s just weird that M would be my choice.
Would be happy for any input on my case.
Thanks and have a great day,
