Ian Murray here - fit instructor at both the Slowtwitch F.I.S.T. bike fit school and at the Guru Academy.
Iâ€™ve created this thread in a Canyon endorsed capacity to help prescribe the proper Speedmax for you: not just the size of bike, but the front-end configuration as well. That means the length of stem, shape of base bar, amount of arm pad pedestal, etc. to make the Canyon you buy the best it can be.
If you are looking to buy a Canyon Speedmax and you want to make sure you get the right size, touch base right here on this thread. Best practices are for you to post your Seat Height, Pad Y, Pad X (AKA Pad Stack, Pad Reach) and I will prescribe the proper Speedmax for you. If you donâ€™t know your Pad Y & Pad X then let me assist you in identifying those coordinates.
Happy to help, Ian
Amazing thread and thank you for the time giving feedback about sizing !
I would like to benefit from your expertise too (even if I know that nothing replace a proper fit).
Looking to buy the 2022 Canyon CF(8) so wondering which size would be better. Height is 185cm, inseam 86.5cm with saddle height on a road bike at 76.6mm for years on road bike without too much issue.
Don't have the Pad Y & Pad X as it will be my first Tri bike. Not sure that will help but I am riding (road bike) since 25 years (started at 16) and compete 12y from 16 to 28 so I think I have a "more aggressive" position compared to most people (like to be in the drops) while my flexibility could be better. I will use the tri bike for long events (half and Ironman)
Thanks in advance !
