Ah the price of coolness... I found these water bottle cages from PDW and just had to have them for our Roadlites. The price was not in $$ but in weight. The carbon ones currently on the bikes were 15 grams, these are 65 grams. But at our ages and how we ride... Anyway here are a few pics. BTW the bikes currently have a little over 3,000 miles on them as of this cleaning session. Everything is holding up well. Still on the original set of tires with very little wear on my wife's tires and my front one. The rear is getting near to end of life. The chains still are within spec too.

I have been following your updates since you bought the CoMax's These new bikes are gorgeous and, you mentioned it in another thread, they seem to be the best bang for your buck for "high end" carbon hybrid bikes. Now I want one

OK, it’s been 6 months since the purchase of the Roadlites so time for a little update. They currently have a little over 4500 miles on them and no problems in fact not even needing any repair/adjustment other than the flat tire on my bike’s rear. I have been waiting for the tires to wear out so I can replace them with tubeless Schwalbe Pro Ones. But the G-One Speeds are wearing well. The only tire showing it’s mileage being the rear one on my bike (might have something to due to my weight…..). You can see it in one of the pictures below. Other than wiping them down, clean and Lub the chains and airing the tires the past 6 months have been every uneventful. I would recommend Canyon to anybody looking for high quality at a very reasonable price. I used to think that position belonged to Giant.




Anyway here are a few pictures of the bikes as they stand today 6 months 4500 miles of use.

And drivetrain



My back tire with over 4500 miles



Ready for the next 6 months!!!

Very cool thread! I am actually going down to visit a friend in SD soon and will be stopping by Canyon in Carlsbad to ride some of their bikes. Unfortunately they told me over the phone (super friendly CSR by the way) that they don't have any fitness bikes for testing, but they have almost all of their MTBs for test riding and also the Aeroad and Endurace models. The CSR said to swing by, test those out and they'd measure me for Fitness bike fit even though they didn't have one for test riding. Using their online fit calculator I'm between an XS and an S for Roadlites.

Well, never having ridden a Canyon before, I couldn't pass up this offer! And who knows, I may end up with a road bike out of this as well (while waiting for my Trek FX S6 to arrive). It would be ironic if I had a Canyon bike in hand before my Trek which I ordered from my LBS in late May. If they let me, I'll try to take some pics of the place to share with the forum.
