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...

Speedmax owners what crank based power meters are you are you running? I am happy with my Quark but now, with a Speedmax on the horizon, I wish I had bought the GXP and not the BB30. I am a Speedplay fan hence the crank based request. I have been advised on here before to avoid Shimano based pm's due to the inaccuracies with the non symmetrical crank. I already use DC Rainmaker for reviews but I am just interested to see what is working well for folks, specifically 24mm. Thanks!

I was very impressed with my Power2Max pm a couple of years ago. Which cranks did you choose?

It's still my old crank from 6-7 years ago that was on my previous TT bike. Rotor 3D with praxis chainrings, with the Classic P2M. The set has worked flawlessly over the years so while the bike is gone, i'm still using the crank and powermeter.

Thanks for the input. It's great to hear that your P2M is still going strong. I only hear good things about them.

Did you manage to get an answer to this question around fitting the HSF Aeria system to your XS? Keen to do the same if it ill fit.

Has anyone experience getting the rear bottle holder to work with an ISM saddle? Due to the drop down at the rear of the saddle, there isn't enough space to mount a cage and fit a bottle. Photo below shows a gap to the seat post and bottle still doesn't fit. Might need to custom print a wedge to get this to work??

Not sure I follow. I have the Canyon water bottle mount on both my Speedmax CF SLX and Speedmax CF with no issue (ISM and Cobb both used). I'm guessing your saddle is TOO FAR back which is what's happening.

FYI....your pic isn't attached.

Cheers, Ray

Hi,
I have developed a fully customizable hydration system for the Canyon Speedmax CF. With a total of 6 parameters, the system is specifically adapted to the individual needs of each athlete.
So it fits perfectly into the cockpit.
The system is mostly 3d printed.
The liquid is held inside in a bladder. The system is therefore completely safe to use and certified for use with food.
For more information and pictures, look at this Video:

Visit my website:
https://3ddesignstender.com/...r-canyon-speedmax-cf

or PM me.

I will adapt der Custom Hydro Kit to other bikes and cockpits soon.

Looking forward to your reactions.

Regards,
Tim

Does anyone have any views on which Speedmax to go for...i'm torn between the CF and CF SLX.

To me, it seems that the main difference between two bikes are the integrated brakes and the hydration unit?

Wondering if the difference in price between two models (assuming same wheels, gears etc) is justified?

As background, this is my first TT bike (previously using road bike with clip on bars) so I'm leaning towards the Speedmax CF model as I get the impression that it might be more adjustable and suited to me given that I will be working on TT position more over coming years.

Any thoughts/advice appreciated!
