Next week I head out to Frankfurt, and while there, I hope to be able to tour the Ergon and Canyon facilities just outside the city. I have been scouring both companies’ websites, and have come across what is one of the prettiest bikes I’ve seen in quite sometime, the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX 9.0 SL. The bike comes in many variations, enough to satisfy all SRAM, Shimano and Campagnolo aficionados. The version pictured above is the lightest, coming in at 13.66 pounds. The frame weighs in at 790 grams, which puts the SLX in the same category as the Cervelo R5, the Cannondale Supersix Evo, and the Parlee Z5SL. The downside to this is that Canyon cycles are still not available in the States. I’ll try and find out if that is going to change soon.
