• Glad to see this thread is back on form. That 24 hours of non-activity really scared me

  • Guys,

    i'm thinking of pulling the trigger on new Grizl, but i'm torn between sizes.
    I'm 178cm with 84cm inseam, and comfortably ride CAAD12 size "M" and Trek Procaliber size "M/L", however Canyon website says I should go for S. I never did own or was suggested an S bike from other manufacturers, it always was M or L.

    Please help while stock lasts. :)

  • I suggest getting the stack and reach of the caad12 and checking that against Grizl. M isn't a caad size so which frame?

    My mate was happy on a M at 180.

  • 54 is my frame size for CAAD12

  • that bike looks nice.

  • Can you Canyon buy two sizes and return the one you don’t like?

  • 54 caad
    S 551
    R 387

    S grizl
    S 556
    R 397

    M grizl
    S 579
    R 402

  • Given you run shorter stem on grizl. Looks like S would be close to the caad. This assumes fit on the cadd is good.

    • NB I assume no responsibility for a internet fit. This thread is a meme. Check for yourself.
  • @Kreddy Put your faith in the Canyon sizing tool.

    Their sizing and offroad geo is a bit nuts if you try and apply knowledge and learnings from other normal road builds. I'm 180cm tall, was recommended, bought and ride a 'small' size Inflite - despite being a solid medium 54 in every other bike I've owned, it's perfect.

  • Agree with @Jameo - use the proper sizing tool, not the simple height/inseam selector though. I bought a Grail one size down from expected (XS rather than S).

  • Like the grizzly

    Looks sexeh.

    My fav is pink colour way, but no big boy sizes :(

  • I like turtles

  • Depends on what you want to achieve. I like larger frames off-road.

  • we had a good run people, we'll never out parody this


  • this feels like something out of the smartphone wars when people would talk about Android's "platform fragmentation"

  • grizl?

  • Stonks? Buy Grails now. If you own Grail: hodl.

  • Anyone have a Stayer Groadinger here? Just wondering how you find it etc.

  • Nice! What is the headtube badge?

    I'm currently in the process of ordering a carbonda 1056 and looking at a similar paint job with a custom headbadge.

  • I own an endurace AND have an XC MTB as 'gravel' bike. What do I win for being ahead of the curve constantly?

  • Haha, it’s just the cable guides taped to the head tube! My friend thought I had fashioned a cat face from matches.

    Current plan is to put a sparkly PBAS sticker on it.

    In other news @amey - I can get the front mech low enough to retouch the 46t ring so I assume it will be fine. Although my 105 4iii just touches the seat stay on the nds.
    I’m going to try and add a bb spacer to make it clear. Not sure if it’s really stupid as there will be less engagement where the crank clamps the spindle.

  • Haha! I also thought it was some sort of cat
