i think all that is, that the canyons came to light earlier with the reviews they got in the mags over here, clever marketing from canyon, the radons look just as good vfm wise

I know,vfm is bang on,just need to make my mind up as to what way to go,Radon,Canyon or something closer to home,i could find a Canyon to sit on and ride but not the Radon,it might just be a case of go for it and see what comes of it,needless to say the first few who bought Canyons were taking a gamble and it payed off.my only other worry is someone has mentioned the geometry of the bike,which i have no understanding of,
