    I didn’t noticed the situation of the rear wheel. It would be a problem for “normal” people but I change bike every 15 years so.... probably it is not going to be a problem

    Haha, no if you are keeping it for this long you are safe :) I don't dislike QR's at all by the way, on the contrary i like them very much. It's only a shame that you need various set of wheels for multiple bikes.

    I think i'll wait for the Canyon gravel bike instead in the spring and do my winter laps on an Endurace.

    But as always, doubts doubts doubts ;)

    Payed today, probably tomorrow they would receive the money.
    On the website the shipment date is 18.12.2017 althought on the mail they sent me they were talking about 14 days from the payment.
    Anyway middle December more or less. I hope to have it before Christmas

    Do you have some news on this one or you're going to wait and then decide? Here in Italy Canyon have been some trouble with shipments (wrong and delayed) and some suspectful breakings...

    I have contacted ROSE again today and the SRAM parts are still not there. I have now cancelled my order permanently and have ordered a road bike at Canyon instead. New bike day has to happen :D

    The Canyon Gravelbike will come in spring but I will post news when i have it here in this thread

    No CX bike? Versatility is better.

    It is my understanding that our dear Bram will have a road bike, a aero bike, a cx bike, a gravel bike, a fixed bike etc etc etc

    I suppose he needs a lot more asses or a new garage

    While I'd love to have the money to have a bike for every discipline, I chose my CX bike for the versatility it presents. I can go on light offroad tracks and all asphalt and any weather. I tried a road bike and while I liked it, I never really got to terms with the skinny tires and the fact it dosent like anything but smooth asphalt in sunny conditions basically :)

    it was the very same consideration I did. 38mm tyres should help.

    Yep, I'm on 40mm (Schwalbe G-One's) and I love every bit of them. I have the possibility to put skinny tires on, I'm not going to do it, but I have the ability to choose.
