I thought I saw option for 172.5 somewhere...

172.5 comes as standard on the small frame.
You could probably convince them to switch it onto a larger frame for you.

I feel that they're ignoring the want/need for 165mm etc on large frames though.

Yeah, I just interviewed Rob Gray, the guy that won Ultraman Florida, and he's riding 165s. They obviously work! I guess just not enough demand for them yet?

This is so dumb. So how does somebody in the U.S. get one? Get a friend to receive it and then ship it here? Will the warranty be any good then?

I went from 175mm to 165mm and it certainly helped my position/fit.
Still ride 175mm on the road bike.

Considering all the R&D that goes in to saving their customers a few extra Watts, you'd think that they'd go the last 1% to make relatively large gains for Canyon riders.

My guess is that would be an issue. If you're willing to gamble $5000 to $9000 go for it. My guess is Canyon would not honor the warranty outside their sales zone for a bike bought by a straw buyer and then immediately shipped to someone in the States.

I think there's no holes drilled for mechanical shifting, but could be wrong.

The guys at the Kona Expo said the top of the line all tweaked out option would be around 7K. I asked him two more times to make sure I heard him right. He said by going direct they can get really competitive with their pricing and said they will be in the U.S very soon but couldn't give me a firm timetable. The bike looks awesome in person even more so than how it looks on their website.

Canyon has always been reasonable on price, even at the high end. When they begin to sell in the U.S., I think end of this year, it will make a dent in the high end bike market. I am betting in the next two or three years at least a few of the big brands will be direct to consumer. By allowing online sells BMC, pina, Argon, Ridley are already increasing in popularity locally at road and cross races. The interesting thing is that this will hardly hurt the lbs who makes most of their money off low end bikes, accessories, and labor.

Wasn't there a quote/comment from Canyon that they would not enter the US market this year and it was maybe something for 2017.

Didn't sound promising.

Problem is that you are buying without taking a test drive. Worries me a bit.
I know, most lbs can not stock high end bikes anyway.
I, too, am hoping for the end of the year

I could be wrong but I think it was on weight weenies a thread said this winter was their goal and the problem was production levels.

The thing is, if you're buying a high end bike, you likely already know your fit anyway, or else can work with a bike fitter to get your coordinates and figure out which size and model works for you. So no real need to test drive it for fit. My experience with Canyon has also been really good on this front - I have one on order (3 month lead time in UK by the way, which doesn't bode well for their ability to scale up and get into the US this year), I had a RETUL fit done a few years ago so just sent them the numbers from that and have had good discussions about sizing so I'm very comfortable that the bike will fit when it arrives.

So if you're not test driving for fit, you're test driving for other factors like stiffness, ride quality, etc. I've been riding road and tri bikes for nearly 25 years, and I can honestly say that I don't think it's possible to make a meaningful judgement of these things on a test ride. If I had the opportunity to get a Canyon, set it up exactly like my current bike (fit, bar tape, saddle, pedals, tires, wheels, etc), and then ride both bikes back to back on the same road, then it's just possible I could make a meaningful comparison. But even then I suspect there would be things I maybe didn't like on the first ride which grew on me with time. If you're test riding a bike that is set up even a little bit differently to your current bike, then IMHO the test is largely meaningless.
