Glad to see this thread is back on form. That 24 hours of non-activity really scared me
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?
Given you run shorter stem on grizl. Looks like S would be close to the caad. This assumes fit on the cadd is good.
@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
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"
Stonks? Buy Grails now. If you own Grail: hodl.
Hoverbar Canyons will join Lefty Cannondales as prestige, collected models. Absolute Deloreans.
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.
was consider one myself at one point https://www.lfgss.com/comments/15846733/
Urban champagne gravel on my new commute
glad to see canyon follow the thread
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
