Last year. I was reading through my Cycle Sport last night and found this gem. They are the first pro team to be sponsored by Lightweight.

It would be like that movie with an overrated comedian. I'll hide the bike, then when I get out of jail in 20 years, I will go collect it only to find out that the ratty old place has been turned into a police station.

Comical events will ensue, racial innuendos will happen in abundance, then in the long run I will give up my life of crime and retire in Mexico.

Most affordable bike that comes with bling wheels. $6999E for the top of the line SRM/Lightweight equipped unit:

http://www.canyon.com/_en/roadbikes/index.html?b=76

Exclude the VAT, figure the SRM and wheels into it, and you're getting the bike for dang near free. It's just a shame it's SRAM and not Record.

The position/size configurator on the Canyon site is pretty cool too. It lets you choose between sport and comfort fit, and chooses the size accordingly.

Just out of curiosity, what is VAT? And that bike is probably one of the best looking I have ever seen!

Whoa there big fella, no need to take your bad day out on everyone else.

REMEBER, Cypress is from Montana or some other God foresaken mid-west State. News doens't arrive to him except by pony express. So please excuse his late post.


Now say you're sorry and go have a beer!

That's a cool bike and wheel set up. There's been a lot of talk about this bike on the Weight Weenies forum. The Canyon is similar to the R3 in weight and tested stiffness and is a favorite of the weight weenie forum. Lightweight wheels speak for themselves. Dig the Riddler jerseys.

F10/Ultimate Carbon has a higher stiffness to weight ratio than the R3.
