Anyone changed their CF to Etap? Wondering where people have placed the blip box. Looking into purchasing one and installing Etap and the aeria stem and hydration unit.

Hopefully doing this over the weekend....provided my LBS gets the parts in tomorrow. Was thinking of mounting on top of the stem.

If I get it looking good will throw some pictures up after.

I did put the blipbox into the bento. I have an Alpha One, so I have the small Bento. Looks great, from my point of view.

My XS 2019 women's CF 8.0 is on its way and I'm already researching how to personalize it -- at least in terms of hydration. I love the look/function of the Aeria system, but I wonder if it will be too tall for the XS frame. Has anyone on an XS frame managed to get it to fit? I'd need the 70mm stem.

Received my bike, yesterday, yay! Discovered damage on the non-drive side...boo. We believe it's from the front wheel rubbing while in the shipping box. Cosmetic, but it’s still a bummer. My 9 year old road bike doesn’t even have scrapes like that, not even after a paceline crash. We’ve already swapped the crank to one with smaller arms, so it would be a massive hassle to return — and no guarantee that a replacement wouldn’t also have similar issues. Is it common to have scuffs and scratches on a mail-order bike?

You should contact Canyon. I have bought 3 bikes from them and received all 3 in perfect condition. They'll offer you a replacement or maybe a discount.

Swapping the crank does not make it a 'massive hassle' to return. Just put the old one back on; takes less than 5 minutes...

Looking at changing my front end to Sync Ergonomics extensions but don't think the current extension clamps will allow for this given the angled spacers and different arm cups. Does anyone know if it possible to purchase the stock extension clamps from the SLX model from Canyon?

Ha, it did turn out to be a semi-hassle, since the company's big cyber attack totally FUBAR'd their customer service email and phone. So I think I ended up sitting on that bike for about 10 days before I was able to talk to anyone. Since they only offered $200 for the damage, I decided to return it and order a 2nd bike, in hopes that it might be damage-free.

It just arrived yesterday, 1day shy of 5 weeks after I ordered the first bike. And it looks great -- phew! The box had damage (including a hole where a little skewer-end cover was poking through) like a slacker Ace Ventura had handled it, but the bike inside was free of any visible defects.

I just got my Speedmax Cf 8.0 and was wondering what you all do for tube storage since there isn't the integrated compartment? I have the rear bottle holders so not much room for a bag below the saddle...
