Official Canyon Speedmax CF Owners Thread
Quote | Reply
I see there is a big FELT owners thread here but none for the Canyon. Just wondering, as I have just purchased a Speedmax.

TIA

Change the title to this one and there will be one.
I’ll add to it.
I saw a couple Canyons at Oceanside and at least three of us at Honu.

Ya, that is how I lucked into my Speedmax SLX 9.0.
No real complaints and am very pleased. I do hope the US gets some of the options available elsewhere.

what options do you mean? i want a good between the bars hydration similar to what the slx 8.0 will have but i figured the slx would be very hard to come by after talking with the sales rep.

The Canyon Speedmax CF SLX only come in one crank length. My Medium is a fairly long 175mm. Also the stem length is what ever your frame size dictates.
On the European site you can order different wheels sets or bar shapes. These are not yet available in the US.
They build a really cool rear bottle mount, but they are always out of stock.

I have an old speedmax, an older ultimate and a strive

Value for money they are amazing

I have bought all three as old stock. I think the discounts used to be bigger before their popularity rose

I had been meaning to start one for the SLX, but haven't got around to it. If one isn't created by later today will do so. It just goes to show how North America centric ST is, Canyon hasn't been in NA, so their hasn't been an "official owners thread" like you see for the other brands. Now that they are starting to take off in NA, think it is time to start the thread.

 Either did I but I’ve been checking the website daily. I got a medium then 30 minutes later it said coming soon again. When I spoke to them they said not until the third week of June so maybe this was just the first batch

I second Brad's request!

I may be biased, but the CF is our little secret model. It's the bike with the a true real-world geometry (slightly taller stack and shorter reach than the SLX), and with a standard 1 1/8" steerer, can adjust (and pack/travel to races) with typical ease, allows you to install the cockpit of your choice, and with direct-mount brakes, is easy to wrench. The SLX is the bike we may want, but the CF is the bike a lot of us need... whether it's due to cost, fit, etc. For most of us, the CF is the right bike.

We still have a few CFs in stock right now in various builds. As a point, we may run out and with long lead times, may experience a gap in availability. And with the end of the 2018s coming soon, we'll gird up for the 2019s (which ought to be different only in colorways). So... if you're thinking about a CF and your size is in stock, don't think too long. It won't be on the challenge level of the SLX models in terms of availability... but it's getting there as word gets out about how rad a bike the CF is.

Ping me with any questions as they relate to the CF.... or SLX, or Aeroad or any of our bikes. I'll be chiming in on the Speedmax SLX Owners thread as well every so often.

The CF is the bike to buy for sure, seems very similar in spec and price to the Felt IA 10-16

I purchased the CF two weeks ago and I'm very happy with the bike. My previous bike was undersized for me so I don't know my "true" fit but this bike has allowed me to dial in my fit. I'm more of DIY type person so it will take me a couple weeks to get it right. I changed to the Tri rig stim inorder to clean up the front and the bare brake cable just looks sleek. I only wish the CF came with storage next to seat post then this bike would be perfect (too good for the price). My only grip is the unavailability of the rear bottle mount.....I mean come on. I hope ya'll shipping enough over in July to account for all the US speedmax purchases.

Speedmax owners. Curious as to how many spacers you have on bars? (From basebar to extensions)

I have 2x2cm + 2x0.5cm and the tilt spacer. In total it's 6cm from the basebar to the start of the extension mounts.
