My Lux MR in white size medium

Weighs 2298,2 gram including seatpostclamp but without deraileur hanger

According to Canyon, frames with white paint adds around 200gram, compared to the clearcoated frames.

Finish is very good, and i mean VERY good :thumbsup:
Can't give any ride report yet, waiting for my Storm SL rotors to get here.

Does the seat stay arch sit directly in contact with the seat tube when the suspension is fully extended? I'm liking the look of this frameset.

It dosn't touch.
There is a gap of around 7mm.

The only "problem" i see with this frameset, is that it uses a internal headset with
36 x 36 degrees bearings.
The headset that comes with the frame, is a FSA Z-5, its ok, but i would like a more "bling"
headset ;)

But i can't seem to find one anywhere with 36x36 bearings :madman:

Yep! Bought it online, they had my size in their outlet shop (got it cheap:D
converted to dollars i got it for around 1600 dollars including shipping to Denmark
Saved almost 1000 dollars:thumbsup:

It was a nice and quick experience.
Payed online, got the frame 4 days later.
Only thing was that they forgot to ship the geardrop:nono: But one mail to the Danish importer, and i had a geardrop 2 days later :thumbsup:

My black clear, size M, weighs about 2150g including RP23. The frame is very stiff and aggressive. Recomended sag is between 10-15% which makes the bike pedal really well without any platform, especially out of the sadle. The high air pressure means full travel is hard to achieve, but for a race machine like this it doesn't really matter. Of course you may ride it with more sag, but then you would have to use the PP a lot more. I have ridden mine in everything from 10min trail TT's to 6 hour marathons and it works great. Complete bike weight was between 8,7 and 9,3kg in different race trims, pedals included. Added a picture in the training setup.
