Just seeing if there were any other Canyon owners active on RBR. Post 'em if you've got 'em! (I'm thinking this may be a short lived thread)

It might be sub 15 without pedals and Edge 705 + cadence, but as is in the photos it's 15.80 lbs total. It's a 58 cm Chorus build and some of the components (Keos w/ CrMo spindles, aluminum bottle cages, etc) don't make for a weight weenie friendly bike. That being said, it's certainly light enough for me! I don't see myself trying to bring the weight down on this build anytime soon. Unfortunately the steel hardware in my RD is not going to be the limiting factor when the road turns upward.Maverick said:something different from the rest..
btw, what wheelset are those?
and what's the total weight of your ride?
from the components, it sure looks like a sub 15lbs.
Sweet, another Korean! I'm 1/2 North on my father's side. Even here in Seattle you don't see a lot of Asian cyclists (although my riding buddy is an exchange student from Hong Kong).Ride-Fly said:Hey Dick,
Nice ride! How do you like it compared to your Moots? I forget what your other bikes are- usually remember just the Moots! Is Canyon a German company or am I getting that mixed up Storck.
OT here but by your name I can guess you are Korean? If so, there are not too many Korean cyclist brethren out there. ROK on!
Wow, quite the story! My dad's from Pyongyang, and escaped to Seoul with his younger brother and worked with US military doctors during the war. They both live in the States now, but my dad doesn't know what happened to the rest of his immediate family (from what I know, they were supposed to rendezvous in Seoul, but it never happened).Ride-Fly said:My dad and mom were originally from the North. My mom came down to the southern coast (Pusan area) when she was kid before the war. My dad was plucked from his family in the North when he was just 16 and made to fight in the K-war for the North. His whole unit surrendered in their first battle and so he spent 3 yrs as a POW. After the war, when all the POWs were released, he decided to go to the South (when he left his family, his father told him never to come back to the North- guess he knew it was going to be very bad under the communist regime) Thank GOD for that or else I would never know the love of riding!!
