Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Road Bike Unboxing Assembly and Ride


(electronic music) Hello and welcome Some of you have actually asked me what bike I ride If you do watch the videos, watch the routes and the rides that i do you’ll notice, I ride the Ribble Gran Fondo its been an absolutely amazing bike this But with all bikes its time to upgrade Ive finally took the plunge Im sure many of you will agree that you can never have enough bikes so with their latest success and all the hype surrounding them Ive gone online and ordered a brand new Canyon direct from the company in Germany really good experience so far but the bike arrived this morning soo I’m really excited about this but I’m going to share with you the unpacking, the assembly and the ride of the bike so lets crack on and get the box open. I can not wait to get into this box Im already inspired by whats written on it check this out ‘made with passion, made for you’ welcome to a community oh theres more. ‘Of passionate cyclists’ this bike is packed really well I pack a lot of bikes but its nothing compared to this Just check this out! Ok so we’ve got a couple of boxes the bike itself , you can just lift out as one There she is I’m actually moving from campagnolo to shimano but we’ve gone up a level we’ve gone with the dura ace on this its absolute manual on this just to keep the weight down and the cost aswell this is a really nice lightweight bike its all strapped together really well really liking these velcro straps you can see the care and attention that has gone into packing this bike its been really well thought out you can rely on the Germans for that its all good so far… (electronic music) Ok so lets have a look at whats in this box Really nice case actually service manual and I’ve got a bag here full of bits aswell oh Ive got a bell but i think most bikes have to be supplied with that now but lets have a look in here So, we have got a manual this is a manual look at this this is basically giving me everything that i have to do and i’ve also got a cd there aswell to use what i do know aswel about this bike and i’ve actually seen a few videos before you do get supplied with the bike a torque wrench to assemble the bike itself really important piece of kit to use so before you start assembling any sort of Canyon bike just remember that there is a torque wrench supplied with the bike itself so Im going to of a bit of reading and Im going to get the rest of this bike assembled shouldn’t take too much trouble as I said the handlebars, the gears and everything are all set up so its just a matter of putting the handlebars on to the stem itself and putting the spindle into the wheel and we should be more or less there so I’m just going to do a little reading on this and then we will take it from there Ok, well I’ve sussed out the torque wrench Im going to get the assembly paste for the handlebars and the seat stem just going to rub this on because its two carbon components together Im just going to roughly put it together then I’m going to fine tune it with the other bike to get the right height and everything else once we’ve got it all together so lets crack on with that! (electronic music) Right ok, thats the bike essentially all together its been really easy to put together all the gearing system and brakes are all tuned up when the bike itself is packed this torque wrench has been very useful as I said its supplied with the bike itself Its a great bit of kit so its been really easy I don’t think anyone would have a problem putting this bike together the only thing that is missing is the pedals… and what I’ve decided to do because this bike is so light 6.45kg so a very light bike so I’ve decided to go with the brand knew look leo blade pedals but these ones are actually titanium ones I’ve gone the extra mile and i think the bike itself deserves it but Im really loving these pedals themselves lovely little pedals with a little carbon strip underneath these are actually the 16’s as they have a red band there swell, it does match the red on the bike Im sure some of you will appreciate that so yes going to get these pedals on and we are going to get the bike out and we are going to get the bike out and yes just wait to get out to be honest with you so stick with us and it should be a good ride! (electronic music) Right ok well to finish off just like to comment on the actual bike itself its been an absolutely fabulous ride its a really sharp and responsive bike into the corners very fast bike, and a light bike up the climbs themselves has been a bit of a change going from champag over to shimano but the dura ace group set is second to none its really smooth and responsive so very very happy with the bike itself and would recommend to anyone the only thing I would say the mavic rims the front rim was making a bit of noise so I’ve actually had to slightly adjust that the hub itself just needs tensioning so just a bit of advise for anyone anyone getting the ksyrium SLR rims then if it is making a bit of noise you just need to tension the hub itself other than that i would recommend this bike to absolutely anyone its been a great ride if you do enjoy watching the videos then please subscribe drop us a like and thanks for watching! Bye for now.. (electronic music)
