I'm looking to buy a Canyon Ultimate AL in either 58/60cm.
Save me travelling to Koblenz has anyone within the M25 got one I could try.

185cm (6'1") 87cm inseam.

I can provide bike related references.

I had heard that the UK distributor has bikes you can test ride?

I have a 58 cm CF SLX that you could have a blast on if it is only sizing that you are worried about, it obviously won't be much good if you are interested in how the aluminium frame is.

I'm after a test ride as well but I'm 6'6" so doubt I will find anyone with a frame to fit me...60 or 62cm.

I contacted uk [at] canyon.com and they kindly told me to hop on a flight to Germany for my test ride. They informed me it would cost me £150 for the flight and transfer from the airport to their factory. I was gobsmacked.

Anyway, I'm not quite sure what to do. It's a lot of money to fork out only to find that you don't like the ride.

Aparently you can return it within 30 days as long as you've ridden it on a clean dry surface.

I would prefer to test out the ride of a carbon and aluminium frame so that I can see which suites me.
