Canyon bikes in Germany uses only the web (direct) for sales, and they seem quite successful (and are sponsors on the UCI tour - Movistar and Katusha). Unfortunately they do not have a dealer/distributor network set up on North America; I imagine that their business model for repair/warranty work (shipping to the factory) would make the costs too prohibitive for the buyer. One of the guys I ride with (currently l live in Hungary) bought one (very experienced rider) is quite happy with it, purchased with high end components and ended up less expensive than had he bought a Trek or Specialized with the same components.
These bikes do look really nice. I hope they're as nice as they look.
