There's so little between them.
Canyon's got a slightly higher spec saddle, better tyres. It's this year's frameset, as opposed to last years. Oh, and it's got an easier low gear to push.... but these are all little things.

As I said before I had Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL's (£800 wheelset) I'm now riding a £40 unbranded crappy wheelset. I can't notice a difference.
TBH at 1720g those Mavic's aren't particularly light -and weight is the subject of your post - so, aerodynamics aside, this is my experience over past few years.
FSA RD-60 - 1980g upgraded to campag Zonda -1555g: Big difference in climbing ability and acceleration. Better under power and no flex
Campag Zonda upgraded to Reynolds 46T - 1180g: a further increase in ability to sprint up hills, faster to accelerate on the flat and to hold speed.+1 mph on my recent average speeds recorded on my usual 10 mile commute.
Of course the more expensive wheels have come with better hubs but I am certain that reduction in rotating weight has been a significant factor.
- Two thirds of cyclist injuries following collisions with motor vehicle due to driver, says City of Westminster1 year 10 weeks agopmanc wrote:

In this country if we say a certain activity is "dangerous" (or "unsafe", etc), we might mean it causes danger (perhaps for some third party), or we might mean it is risky for the participant, perhaps through no fault of their own. The two are quite different things and it's a quirk of language which often muddies the water.
What I am saying is, that while this kind of reporting is seen as activism to promote the creation of more cycling infrastructure, it also serves to put people off.
It does make some people believe that when they go out on their bike some idiot is just going to run them over.
And I do sincerely believe that more people cycling would make cycling safer. I can tell such a big difference between London, where I used to live and Canterbury, where I live now. In London people are much more used to sharing the road with bikes than here and it does make cycling feel safer.
Now cycling isn't that dangerous an activity and neither is driving. But you can make a statistic sound almost any way you want with a bit of subtle reporting.
For example what are the chances that you are at fault as a driver in a collision with another driver? Presuming you are both average drivers it will be around 50%.
So in 50% of cases the collision is not your fault! Sounds a bit alarming to me even though it isn't. Now insert the word 'fatal' before collision in the last sentence and it will sound even worse.

For the sake of being a pedant, its an SRM and the arms and spider are DA 9000. I feel like a git just for pointing that out. Ah well, it was going to happen eventually.
More pics here
You're confident those are DA 9000 crank arms on his bike? They're 7800 arms, the same as he rode last year, just with the new 9000 four-arm spider and rings fitted, which SRM is calling their new SRM 9000 system. More info here http://scientific-coaching.com/deposit-for-da9000-srm.html

I think im now set on the following two bikes as they appear the best value and available in my size (52)

Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Di2 __ 7.05kg __ Ksyrium Elites __ £2900
