    The good old Canyon Inflite AL has been re-done from the ground up. Equipped with SRAM Apex 1 this is the German internet company's mud racer for the winter months.

    Love the color. I have a soft spot for that Bianchi Celeste minty green.

    it means that the frame line "works" well. I always salut the usage of aluminium, I think that it is an underestimated metal. Price is competitive. So very good to me

    Wish they had a more road friendly version. Since there are absolutely no hills here, I wouldn't mind a 1x setup, but a 40 tooth ring on the front is way too small for the roads.

    If you need it, Sram produces 1x rings with max measure 53

    My Giant TCX cx bike has a 40T ring on the front. I've only spun it out once on a local descent hitting 50-55 km/h. I doubt many hit that figure on a regular basis, be it a cx or road bike.

    The Mathieu vd Poel Team replica is the CF version of the bike that really makes me smile. New Ultegra RX, Di2, beautiful paintjob. But meeh that kink is still odd imo.
