    I emailed them at us@canyon.com to ask what is the max tire clearance (front and rear) for both the Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 7.0 and the Endurace Al Disc 7.0

    I know that it comes with 700 x 28c tires, but can it fit 700 x 45c gravel tires? What about max width on 650b rims? Maybe 650b x 52c tires?

    Both of those Diamondback Century bikes from 2016 have standard road caliper brakes:

    https://www.rei.com/product/876882/d...rbon-bike-2016

    If the Canyon fits 700 x 45c tires on the OEM wheels, they will sell out.


    It's ok but really they're trying to move into a space that's been pretty saturated by Diamondback and Raleigh as well as REI/Performance house brands.

    For example, the discounted Diamondback Century 5 carbon is the same price at $1,994.99 with better groupset and the discounted Diamondback Century 4 is $1,574.99 and offers pretty much the same specs. Endurance road, like road bikes before are essentially fungible goods and I'm not convinced the road racing cache Canyon has gained in the past few years is enough to give them significant market share to move large numbers of bikes - especially combined with the current down market. Right now, in the US, bikes at all levels are very good and very cheap and it's going to be hard to do much in the next 6-7 months.

    I guess for bigger rubber it would need to be either the $1799 INFLITE CF SLX 8.0 or the $2999 INFLITE AL SLX 8.0 - cx bikes.

    For anyone serious about buying a top-line racing cyclocross bike, but doesn’t have the extra funds or personal sponsorships, the Inflite AL SLX 8.0 Pro Race will be a perfect option. Equipped with much of the same high-level components as the CF SLX 8.0 Pro Race, this version of the bike will save you loads with only the most modest weight gain. The AL SLX frame made from a smooth welded alu includes vibration-reducing seat stays that will work to channel your pedal power to the trail. Similarly, the oval chain stays offer greater clearance for the tires while keeping the back-end super stiff. The VCLS technology used for frame and fork ensure that the ride is comfy while keeping the frame effective and responsive. The SRAM Rival groupset will be a reliable companion, and for the crank you’ll even get the power meter-ready X1-compatible Quarq Prime aluminum crank. The touch points are all Canyon in-house parts that are designed to keep the handling sharp and the comfort high with the H17 Ergo AL handlebars, V13 durable stem, and the Canyon S23 CF seatpost. The DT Swiss CR 1600 Spline DB wheelset combined with the 33mm Schwalbe X-One tubeless compatible tires will form a durable, responsive team to keep your momentum over tough sections and grip in a wide range of course conditions. The Inflite AL SLX 8.0 Pro Race will get you through the cross season with ease and within budget.

    Question:

    What is the max tire clearance for both the Canyon Endurace and the Inflite series. for 700 vs 650b wheels


    Answer:

    Thank you for your email.

    We are very proud of the fact that the Endurace was designed with using larger sized tires in mind. That being said it's max tire clearance is 33mm with a 700c wheel.

    We did not design it to be used as a gravel bike and as such did not give it clearance for the bigger tires. We have not tested tire sizing with any 650b wheels but that should afford you some extra clearance.

    The Inflite has clearance for up to a 700x38mm tire.

    Sadly I do not have clearance measurements on using a 650b sized rim as we have not tested it with these wheels.

    All the best,

    Ian

    So the Endurace comes only in two carbon frame version: $2k for mech discs and Rival. and $6500 for eTap and hydros w CF rims. HUUUUUGE gap in that lineup Canyon. dumb. Should have a mech ultegra/hydro option at the very least.

    Specialized Roubaix with ultegra di2 and hydros is only $4600msrp, soon to be on fall sale prices. Not carbon rims, but at least it slots in a price point easier to swallow than the $6500 Canyon

    If they're going to have such limited lineup, they'd do much better to just sell the frames alone so people can spec to their own budget and tastes

    It's disappointing that there are no frame only options from Canyon in the US launch. Hopefully they will follow.

    Regarding the gap from 2k to 4600, I thought I read that they were only showing bikes that were in stock and ready to ship, hence what appears to be a much smaller line up than what they show in other countries, where out of stock bikes are also shown on the site.
