I am so tempted by this, even if it does mean waiting until April??? What incredible value for money at under £2500.
I know a few people that have Canyons of one shape or another and love them. A search on the internet backs this up. Bike radar rated the 2012 26er as one of the best bikes for 2012.
It would be a great place to start in the world of the 29er. I did have a couple of questions for Canyon, mostly about the forks. They are listed as 110mm but Fox don’t do a 110mm fork if you check there website. So I am interested what size the forks actually are, i will post back when i find out.
If I get the answers I hope for, there might be a purchase on the cards, I will keep you posted.
