Last week the 2018 CF SLX 9.0 SL became available in my frame size in the morning, bought it, and 2 hours later showed as sold out. People are hawking the website, quite like I was. Oh my goodness this bike is a bullet. All smiles with my new Canyon :)

Sorry... that was to say, five "copies" of the XS bike that person was interested in. Five XS bikes in this shipment, that is.

Sorry, I misread that....wishful thinking perhaps! Do you have a rough estimate on when you think the US site will have CF SLX9.0 small bikes available?

Is there any update on when the 2019 CF8.0 Di2 will be available in the US? The new blue and black styles are available on the international site and are sweet! I see that frame is in the US for the LTD model but not the standard yet. Will that be coming?

Also,
If anyone is looking for the seat post water bottle cage mount in North America, they have it available on the backend, not on the website yet. Just ordered one.

it looks like https://www.canyon.com/...ccessories/?id=60142

Here are some photos of my cockpit. Sorry about the quality, lightning isn’t the best in my pain cave in the basement.









Haven’t had time to trim the rubber “thing” hugging the frame, currently there is some extra overlapping with the head tube.

Was it a fairly straightforward process to switch over to the PD setup? Been considering this but wasn’t sure how simple of a change it was considering the cable routing

Very straightforward, at least with the di2 wires. I just unplugged the wires from the junction box and routed cables trough the stem and reconnected. The front brake was easy also, the cover of the cable just a bit too short but I got it to work (didn’t have time to tinker with it and put a new cover). The rear brake cable doesn’t go trough the stem.

hrm wonder how bad it would be for mechanical setup. Might have to do a bit more investigating because the finished product does look clean.

Can anyone show me what this team switch plate is?
I apologize if this has been covered already

The teams switch plate looks like the standard switch plate, but has more length in it, allowing it to be flipped fore or aft to provide not only more width adjust (as the standard switch plate does) but also that added fore/aft pad placement. Photo attached. As with a few accessories (including our rear bottle holder for the Speedmax SLX and CF), it's not on the website, but we do have them in stock. Just call our guys here in Carlsbad on our toll free line (833.226.9661) and you can order it. The Team Switchplate is $20 a set.

Does not affect the tilt at all.

I have been using the Premiere Tactical Bike Box since getting my SLX, bit pricey but has been a great case thus far.

As far as a "bag", I would look into the EVOC, even though it is "soft" it is a great bag, very well constructed and I had no issues with it over the 4 years that I owned it and probably into the ~100 flights with it.

What's the max tilt you can get out of the bar?

Are you talking about the CF or the CF SLX? From what I know the CF is more of a "standard" Tri bar/stem and you can adjust the tilt really easily at the extension clamps, no additional hardware is needed.

If you are talking CF SLX (integrated bar/system), then you do need additional hardware and it is a set tilt of 9*, see pg 57 top right (https://media.canyon.com/...479096960.1502819710).

Brad's exactly right. The Angled Spacer Kit is totally separate piece that provides aerobar pad and extension on the SLX angling. And indeed, if you're on a CF, it's a standard 31.8 basebar and stem interface, in which case the Profile Design T4+ clip-ons can pivot on the basebar as you like.

On the other speedmax thread the Op said that I can get to a reach of 580 with the team switch plate in the slx. I cannot find actual stack and reach numbers or charts for this bike. Am I missing something here

If you go to and click any of the models, scroll to the bottom of the page. There, you'll find the stack/reach numbers for a given size. That said, those numbers are with stock pieces. Per usual, I don't have a switch plate on hand to measure against, but having seen one, I can say with some accuracy that it, installed in its "fore" position, will provide those extra 3cm of fore positioning to get your reach to 580.
