It can go 28cm outside-to-outside to outside with the pads in their innermost setting, 31cm when bolted down in the center position, and 34cm in their widest. So you definitely a get narrower pad position with the new setup. (and lower).

You're awesome, thanks! Still might change to ergo armpads or so to get even narrower. But the option of getting lower than before is great!

Edit: now that I think of it, 28cm outside-to-outside is actually pretty narrow already for a non-pro. That makes the CF 2019 even cooler. Figure out a matching hydration system and it's a go

Thanks for the response Jay.

I noted the change on the 2019 model. For now I've moved both the pads and the extensions inboard. This creates enough clearance to ride on the bullhorns unobstructed. It feels a heap better than having to bow your wrists around the pads.

Obviously that creates a narrower aero position which I'll have to see how it works out. I've completed a couple of trainer sessions (up to 1hr) and haven't noticed a major difference when aero. Looking forward to getting outside once we emerge from winter here in the North of Scotland.

Cheers. Paul

Jay, can you confirm that the switch plate (and even team switch plate) will work on the CF model, and not only the SLX?

The switch plate is specific to the integrated aerobar (and cup affixment) on the SLX . Because the CF uses standard aerobars and stem (Profile Design as spec’d, but can fit any standard 31.8 aerobar), each of which have their own bolt sizes/locations, you’re beholden to that, and their pad adjust capabilities.

So in short, the switch plates only work for the integrated bar on the SLX.

A question concerning the 25mm spacer on the front between frame and stem. The manual and the website say that the spacer can be removed in order to get lower. I keep on reading here about having to cut the steerer. Is this true? When this spacer is removed the steerer would stick out?

Here is an image of the spacer removed:

Hey! Can you maybe describe in some detail how you got to this nice setup? You replaced the stem with the PD aeris ultimate stem I presume. Did you remove the spacer as well (can't see it on the pic) and bought the flat bento box from canyon? How did you get your armpads narrow like this? Did you swap the pads for the PD F-40? Thanks, appreciate!


I removed the spacer and cut the steerer tube, replaced the stem and added a really thin spacer under the stem. After that ordered the smaller bento box from Canyon. I also swapped the pads for F40, which make the look so narrow. However, F40 pads are really wide and I have a hard time finding a proper position with them and I’m planning on changing them for the race cups.

Do you mean the 25mm spacer between the stem and the frame? Isn't it intended to be removable without cutting the steerer like on this image here? https://goo.gl/images/jPQDXo
Or does cutting the steerer have something to to with specifically mounting the Aeria Hydration system?

Yes, the 25mm spacer between the stem and the frame. You have to cut the steerer tube to make it fit flush. Otherwise you would have to put the spacer above the stem (if I understood correctly the spacer doesn’t fit above the stem without minor modification. In the picture you posted the steerer tube is cut and smaller bento box is used.

Hmm.. interesting that this is never mentioned anywhere by canyon. They keep mentioning that the spacer is intended to be removed in order to switch between time trial and triathlon setup (as they call it) but the smaller bento box has to be used to to make it fit.
But concerning the Aeria Hydration system the installation is quite easy apart from that? Just reroute cables through the new stem I guess

Yes, you can only switch the mode once, you cannot go back to the taller setup with larger bento box.

Apart from cutting the tube the installation is very easy. Just put the new stem in place and reroute the cables. I have Di2 so rerouting was really simple (Di2 cables and front brake cable, rear brake doesn’t go trough the stem.

Okay, thanks! And how satisfied are you with the aeria system? It's sold out everywhere so can't be that bad I guess :)

Jay:

Any update on the availability of the seat post bottle mount and the integrated garmin mount in the US?

Also, any idea how I might be able to secure a longer drinking tube, or modify mine? I need a few more inches.

Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine have 2018 CF and his fitter drilled new holes in the armrests to get more narrow. Looks real nice, it almost looks like you are supposed to drill your own holes to get that narrow. His fitter is very well known, espacially here in sweden and he works for a world tour team that last year rode cervelo...
I own a 2018 CF to and needed to get longer so i just removed the original stem and spacer and replaced them with a 100mm stem and a couple of ordinary spacers, doesnt look to good but funcionality before looks...

That's also an option. Don't know about the new armrests on the 2019 though, they're different. They also can get narrower, 28 cm outside-to-outside according to Jay here I think. Which is nice but still not narrow.

Another option for the stem would be a Profile Design Aeria Ultimate stem. Think it also has100mm. Then you could even combine it with the Aeria Ultimate Bottle and you got an integrated Hydration System as on the SLX

Ordered a 2019 Canyon Speedmax CF 7.0 (Stealth, Medium) this morning. I wanted only the frameset but unfortunately Canyon doesnt sell it alone. Will be building up a custom bike over the next few weeks with SRAM Etap, TriRig aero bar, TriRig Omega X brakes, and Reynolds aero wheels.

Excited!

Hi all - new 2019 Speedmax 8.0 CF owner here. It's my second TT bike after a couple years with a slightly-undersized 51cm P2. Just arrived this past Friday and I'm working on transferring fit from the P2, and adjusting from there. I used the PPS tool and it sized me at a Medium.

I am struggling with the extensions, which are super long. I am 5'9, and while I can get pad/saddle in the same height/fore/aft/stack/reach positions, the extension soar out several inches past my grip - and that is as far as I can possibly bring them in, due to the design. I took the bike to my LBS to cut them down, but not sure how much I can cut exactly. LBS suggested cutting 2 inches but I am almost positive that's not going to be enough. I'd like to give them some guidance.

I feel like I need almost 3 full inches to get a match between my prior arm pad-to-grip length. Is that crazy? I never had to cut anything on the P2 (unless the LBS did it before putting the bike on the floor) so this feels drastic. I'm not mechanically inclined enough to fully remove the 35a extensions and measure them...and overall having a hard time judging this since the base of the extension is enclosed in the subsonic bracket. I can see a "cut" mark but not sure what the length between the base of the extensions and the cut mark is. Is a 3 inch / ~75mm cut normal for these?

Thanks!

Hi Iam similar height to you but was well into a small not really close to a medium but my extensions are on max extention and fit fine.

Interesting what you other measurements are...it was a small for me.
