bicycle type: gravel
frame size: M (L)
wheel size: 700C
bicycle frame material: carbon fiber
Below is a link to the web page for all the specs. For $3500 cash the build includes Force Axs Etap Shifters and brakes, Force crank 172.5, 42t single chain ring. Some photos show this build, others show the red crank instead. You can get the bike with either red or force crank and also with or without a power meter.

The bike has been upgraded with an X01 Cassette (from GX) and has a Yoleo Carbon wheelset with DT Swiss 240 hubs. The inner rim width is 21mm, outer 29mm, and the depth is 40mm. They weigh just under 1500 grams. They are ideal for tires 700x30-43C.

If you don't want the wheels, I'd love to keep them the bike is yours for $3000. Conversely, if you'd prefer a Red crank and a power meter I actually have those on the bike currently its $4000 cash for that build. Also, if you don't want the drive train, we can strip it down to the frame, brakes, seat post, axles for $1900. The saddle included in any full build will be an SDG Lux Bel Air as seen with the Force photos.

The original shipping box and everything else that came with it and will be included with the bike. There have been no mechanical problems whatsoever. Excellent care is taken with my bikes the chain gets lubed freshly for almost every ride and the drive train fully cleaned every 3rd or 4th. The original X01 chain is still on the bike and the Park Tool indicator shows it's nowhere near 50% stretch.

You can't get an Eagle Cassette on this bike stock anymore so if you want a Colorado climbing friendly gravel bike this is it. They don't make a cassette for XPLR that is as light as the 355 gram X01/XX1 Eagle it's about 23 grams heavier at 378 grams because it's GX quality material/build that wears much faster than XO1/XX1 durability.

Lastly, it has to be said that the SLX frame is only 820 grams! Canyon went about 150 grams heavier with the newer models, including the Endurace. This is lighter by over 100 grams than the new CF SLX Endurace, and if you look at it's dimensions this is more of an endurance road bike than a modern gravel bike of the last year or so with the slacker geo.

I ran it with road pedals and tires (700x38 Schwalbe Pro One and 700x34 Vittoria Corsa N.EXT) this bike is very nimble I consider it to be the perfect bike for a 50-mile round trip to Palmer Lake via the Greenway trail since there is a good 25% of the ride on pavement and the gravel is groomed.

The Garmin mount is included.

Canyon size 'Medium' is a 'Large' by almost any other brand.
