Hi all,

I purchased my Canyon Ultimate CF SLX last year and I didn't realise that it was possible to swap the integrated bar and stem for a different size.

I assume there is a time limit (which, I assume I'm well past now) to swap the bars with Canyon.

Anyone know?

Cheers  1

Yeah, I just spoke to them on live chat and it's only for the first 30 days. Wish I'd known when I bought the bike  2

So does anyone want a Canyon H36 aerocockpit with a 100mm stem and 410mm bar width for £250? haha...

They keep it very quiet, I think I will need to change the cockpit to 100/41 from the 90/39. Ideally I would want the one from the endurace which is wider as I am very broad.

Yeah, it is annoying that they don't make it clear...

I'm sort of doing the opposite, want narrow bars but with the longer stem!

I sold mine on eBay for a small fortune; they easily go for £300 or more which is more than Canyon sell them for (did a fixed price auction).

Be warned; there's a bunch fiddly things you need when replacing them with normal bars. For one, the steerer is 1-1/4" not 1-1/8 which limits your stem choice to basically Canyon and Giant. So... here's what you ought to order from Canyon:

- A Canyon stem or two ("ST Body V13-15 100 31,8 1 1/4 6 bk/gy" for 100mm). Definitely order a couple as not all bars have the same reach and they can take a fair while to deliver (although mine took less than a week)

- Stem frontplate ("ST PC frontplate for V13/V15 bk")

- 4x Frontplate screws and conical washers ("ST CAYN screw M5 for V13/V14/V15", "ST CAYN washer V13,V14,V15 inner D. 5mm")

- The top cap ("HSP ACRS top cover 1 1/4 bk")

- The top cover ("HSP ACRS top cover 1 1/4 bk")

-  A bunch of spacers of different sizes ("SPAC CAYN E246-15 1 1/4 2,5 bk" for 2.5mm one. I'd get 1x2.5mm, 1x5mm, 3x10mm... that should be more than enough for max or slammed)

Canyon are super helpful so do ask them if you're uncertain.

Thanks robot, I'll be selling mine on eBay, like you, I'll be doing fixed price £300.

I'm replacing it straight up with the same H36 aerocockpit from Canyon just with narrower bars!

You're aware that for each bar width for the aerocockpit there's only one stem length (despite what the site might make you think, it is only one)? If you want narrow with a long stem (which is what I wanted) it's not going to happen. I wanted 38cm wide which gives somehting like 80mm stem iirc.

The H36 I have also has a 390 width with 100mm stem option https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/accessories/?category=3204#id=61696

Unless the website is incorrect?

Sonnova! They must have added it recently! Well, that's good for you at least  1 I pestered them relentlessly during the mid of last year so I lay claim to that improvement  3 Also they didn't sell them separate at the time I think.... That said, I've changed my stem size twice since then so maybe I'm better off than I would have been.

This is why I'm rather peeved. When I purchased the bike, I my only other option was 390 width with 90mm stem - no good for my gangly arms.

Hi, Wellsprop,

 

Do you still have the cockpit, I could be interested.
