This frameset was acquired by me about 2012 direct from Canyon. The Silence Lotto bikes for 2009's edition of Paris Roubaix were one off's with slightly different geometry and race decals. This frameset was ridden to 5th place by future winner Johan Vansummeren.
Tail of the team in that race here...https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NWhcCjWvb50
I had the bike built up with full 10spd Ultegra a Fizik airone saddle and a hand built set of Ambrosio Nemesis rims on Hope hubs. Conti sprinter tubs
I've done a couple of hundred miles on the bike but spend more time looking at it than riding it as i don't want to damage it which is a ridiculous state of affairs.
If you genuinely want to stand out from the crowd this is the bike for you. £1400 plus paypal and postage
Previous rider... genuinely only raced once!
At that height you would stand out anywhere ;-)
...that frame...drool....very tempting...ride it!
Super photo and a great edition. If Hoste hadn't have binned it with about 18km to go the race may have turned out differently.
i like the traditional "Queen of the North" Nemesis rims as well. I think they look cool.
I still have one of these (same size too!) in the loft to bring back out as a crit bike when I re-grow some balls.
Great bike if you whack a proper set of wheels on it. GLWS.
Respect dude, that looks the mutts nuts!
