I have a Cannondale Topstone 6 gravel bike. The Cannondale has a longer wheelbase, but I'm not sure I could tell you how it feels different from the Canyon, from a geometry perspective. I do benefit (in comfort, not speed) from running lower tire pressures -- around 50 psi, vs. 80 psi on the Canyon's 700x28 tires. The Cannondale is about a pound heavier, and not that this matters but I'm about 1 mph slower on the Cannondale. The Canyon was light and and fast and responsive.

What I found after more than a year of tracking every ride was that I rode the Canyon only about 15% of the time, everything else was on the Cannondale. Why? Who knows? Probably multiple factors in play.

How do you find the 1x10 setup for the 2023 FX 3 ? Do you think it's suitable for mixed roads?

I find the gearing on this bike adequate. The lowest gear lets me climb the hills I need to without much difficulty, and I haven't encountered a downhill yet that required a higher gear than the setup gives me. However, I'm not crazy about the 1x10 setup -- I find that if I'm using any cog too far off the center of the cassette, there is increased drivetrain noise, and presumably increased wear. I'd rather have had a 2x10.

I've joined your ranks with my FX 3 in the garage. Thanks to all who have posted here. I wasn't originally thinking of a Trek for my next bike, but after a test ride and reading this site, I had a lot more confidence in my choice.

I know I'm still in the honeymoon phase, but, holy buckets, is this bike zippy!
