    Canyon road bike

    Hi All,
    I was originally going to the Specialized or Trek route for an endurance bike. But, after checking out the few that were still available, I discovered why they were still available. Long story short, Iím still looking and turns out the Canyon bike Iíd consider is available. The Endurace CF SL Disc 8.0 Di2. But, Iíve heard a common issue with Canyonís road bikes is that the front brake rubs when standing and grinding it out up hill, which is due to the flex in the fork. Has anyone else heard this and have suggestions on how to fix? Or, maybe this has issue has been addressed by Canyon for the 2020 year models? This is the only thing holding me back from ordering one. I thought about just ordering it and if it doesnít work out, return it. But, I feel like that would be a waste of time.
    Thanks

    I have a 2019, same bike. I never hear of this issue, nor experienced it, but I can only put out about 500w.
    That front end with the through axle is way stiffer than any clamp down bike I have ever ridden, by a hole level better.

    Thanks for the response. Glad to hear you have the same bike and love it. What do you mean by you can only put out 500w, though?

    I think your saying you donít push hard enough for that to happen anyway. (Iíve never used a power meter. So, not sure how that goes.) I assumed all it took was just standing up on the bike to push your body weight through. But, maybe Iím wrong. Idk. Maybe I should just order it and give it a try. Iím also considering a custom built bike. My lbs says a proper fit will take care of road compliance. So, I should stop by and just let him build me something. Not sure if thatís just a marketing ploy to get me into the store or not. But, that is another option Iím exploring.

    U are trying to compare a Canyon to some custom bike?
    Who said that Canyon's forks are weak?
    Who said that the custom bike is better? .. and what is it made of, cream cheese?
    I think u have a bigger problem than picking a bike.

    Duriel... always a ray of sunshine.

    I have a Grail and few of my friends have Ultimates - and never heard of the fork thing. One of the guys on an ultimate is 225 lbs and a strong rider.

    I'd suggest buying the Canyon but unpack it like you are going to send it back...
    - Take pictures as you go
    - Label the packaging/foam blocks and straps

    Ride the bike for a couple weeks and decide.

    My buddy's Trek Madone SL7 disc brake also has the front disc rub when he's out of the saddle going hard. But it's not a bid deal, but yeah I can see that would be a little annoying hearing the rub, it plays with your head
