Great pricing on the new eTap :-) Need new bike suggestions.

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

So happy with the new SRAM groupset pricing. Much easier to justify a 4000 dollar bike when a new groupset costs 4000 dollars right?

Imagine the line to the wife. "I am getting a full bike, with group, wheels, saddle, stem, bar etc for the price of a new groupset alone. Great deal ;-) "

Di2 disc it is. Looking at the Canyon. Any suggestions? Any good deals available that you guys know of? I live in India, but any good deal in the US or Europe would work.

Ultegra Di2, endurance geometry, disc brakes are the requirements.

Canyon has some very appealing offerings IMO. If I had to buy another carbon bike, Canyon would definitely be considered.
Although you're in India, word on the street is Canyon is gearing up to delve deeper into the US market for 2019.

I've got nothing for you on bike selection, but I've been running Ultegra Di2 with discs for two years (so the previous generation) and it works fantastically. You're in for a treat.

As far as Canyons go, they look like a great value. I see people riding them and looking happy. I personally wouldn't buy it with Cosmic Carbanes.
