I know a bit about the company but only as a new owner of one of their bikes - the Roadlite 6.0

I started riding again, after a long period away from bikes (merely recreational), last year to lose some weight and get a bit fitter. My initial purchase was a Giant CRS4 and after deciding to get a road bike I searched the web for months (it seemed like years
) and I finally came upon the Canyon site. I was hesitant about purchasing a bike on-line without a 'professional fit' from a LBS but I finally bit the bullet just before last Christmas, I entered my measurements ln their size calculator and it recommended a 66cm frame. That caused a bit of panic as I'm not an expert on bike geometry and this seemed a rather large frame to me - more days of research (including these forums) and it seemed like this really was the correct size for me (I'm 190cm & 96cm inseam) with their frame geometry. An order was placed and the bike arrived in 6 days from Koblenz (in Germany, as mentioned above), it's an excellent bike very responsive and a stiff frame that's also comfortable on moderately long (for me) rides of 60-80km.
You don't say where you're located but if you're in the USA you may be out of luck, I think they've suspended their distribution in the USA until they sort out future plans for distribution there - I believe I saw that on their web-site but can't find it now. Other than that, most countries are covered (especially in Europe, I'm in France BTW). The pricing is also on their web site although it's on the individual bike page rather than as a single price list, there's also complete specifications and geometry details on those pages.
I did have to contact the Customer Services department a with a few novice question and their response was prompt, courteous and answered professionally. I can certainly recommend the company and the bike itself is a pleasure to ride.
