I'm narrowing my choices regarding a new bike, but have a dilemma. Two of those on the shortlist are a Trek Madone 4.7 and a Canyon Ultimate CF 9.0. Extremely similar geometry (58 in the Trek = 60 in the Canyon), both full carbon good quality frames, both with Shimano Ultegra. However, the Trek has Bontrager Race Tubeless Ready wheels, which the LBS tell me are "pretty much equivalent to Ksyrium Elites". Is this about right? The Canyon actually has Ksyrium Elites.
Hi all, wondering if anyone here could give me a hand? About to purchase a Canyon ultimate CF SLX and having a dilemma over sizing. Given my height I think I am roughly in between the small and the medium frame. I had a bike fitting done a few months ago and was given some optimum size charts - struggling to marry this data up with Canyon's geometry charts.
I was wondering if anyone with some experience in these matters could take a look at my charts and help advise me on the correct frame size to order?
Following on from my previous post asking about Cube Agree frames I have more questions relating to german bikes. I quiet like the look of Ghost bikes and Canyon Ultimate cf or al, but don't know much about them. Anyone got any experience? My concern with buying from the internet is that I am new to road bikes and don't want to make a stupid and expensive mistake going for one of them when I could just go the easy route and buy a Specialized or Cannondale?
