I've been eyeing up a Canyon road bike (CF SL 7.0, bottom of the range but still a step up from anything I've had before,) for a long time. My current bike is getting quite worn and refuses to index into the lowest gear 39/25 is best I can do. With the Canyon I can get 36/32 and can finally tackle some hills, my Kryptonite.)
However their own size calculator is confused by my body. I have a long body and heavyish for my height at 90kg. My inseam is 32" and it said I had very short legs! I am 181 (5'11" and a smidge)
I've had 56cm top tube bikes for my last three without trouble, though the handling one each was slightly different, (Cannondale was very smart and lively, seemed smaller than the 56cm Ribble,) and was going to buy a Canyon L 566mm, but having used their calculator to be sure it now makes me doubt myself. The medium top tube is M 549mm, so not a massive difference.
Unfortunately Canyon are not the kind of bike that you can take for a test ride with their selling model, and I sure don't want to have to send one back.
Has anyone got any experience with Canyon sizing? If you fell inbetween, did you go up or down?
