Canyon SLX Di2

Postby jsprbcn » Fri May 17, 2013 12:56 pm

This week arrived my Canyon CF SLX Di2.

Ultimate CF SLX Di2 2013
Ultegra 6700 Di2
Ultegra SH PD-670 carbon pedals
Mavic Ksyrium Elite black
Ritchey WCS EvoCurve carbon matte black handlebars
San Marco Zoncolan carbon FX saddle
Elite Custom race matte black bottle cages

First photos, and more to follow once I am able to take it out for a ride!

Due to the rain I could not take it out, so I did the first adjustments with my rollers.

I took my SLX out for a ride yesterday and it felt really good. The VCLS seatpost in combination with my San Marco Zoncolan is really comfortable. The bike is stif while riding out of the saddle and during climbs.
The Di2 shifts very nice and smooth, butit costed my quite a while to figure out where the charging point was (in the junction box there is now an charging point as the battery is mounted in the frame).

Here a "crappy" picture, better pictures will follow as hopefully this weekend I am able to make a bigger ride with some more photos (without saddlebag) :P

I am 193cm tall with 93cm inside leg. I have ordered XL with following changes:
stem 110mm-->120mm
bars 42cm --> 44 cm

I am riding 180mm cranks, which are already waiting 4 months in my home for the new CF SLX. :shock:

I still have to make a long ride to make the final "miniature" adjustments (seat height, seat angle and setback), but even for now copying the "settings" of my Bianchi track bike the SLX is very it's comfortable.
