Re: Canyon Bikes

to the conoscenti, what do you guys think of this bike ?

http://www.trekbikes.com/ch/de/bikes..._sport/marlin/#

I read the brakes were not that good so probably would replace them with
hydrolic ones (if possible ?). For the rest, the more expensive Mamba and
Cobia are out 'cause they have white handlebars/stems (ugly !), will be difficult to
change those if necessary...

Its cheaper to buy a better model than to upgrade. And that bike needs upgrading.

Re: Canyon Bikes

Updating the old thread...

Now Canyon bikes are officially available in Switzerland!!
Yipee...


Ha by the way there's still the branding issue therefore they had to "adapt":
less choices, delays in delivery, etc...

It's available at www.purecycling.ch

1) They reflect the TVA immediately on purchase and change the price daily, with the currency fluctuations
2) they won't be named "canyon" but the model name
3) the model I inspected online has all same equipment but 2 (rear suspension) and different colors than the "regular canyon model"...

Well beside that it's all similar, and ready at your home.

I live just across the border in France. Can I order at purecycling.ch and have the bike delivered to an address in Switzerland or is that illegal?

Buying it in Suisse would save me quite a bit of money

Re: Canyon Bikes

I like canyon bikes but since bikes are like shoes one needs to try before buy so is anyone living around Zurich which owns a Canyon Nerve AL , M size or a Canyon Nerve AL 29 , M size and agrees to meet so i can see if the bike fit me?

I contacted pure-cycling.ch asking if they have some test bikes around Zurich but they sent me to Koblenz (very funny). I just do not understand their marketing strategy .

On their spec the Nerve AL, M is about 18.5 and for Nerve AL 29, M s 17.5. Right now i have a 18 inch bike but i consider buying one bike a tad smaller.

Regards,
Mihai

Re: Canyon Bikes

Been there, seen that
Still loving my Nerve AM9 (a.d. 2011) tho'...
But wouldn't mind trying out some kind of front-sus 29er, to tell you the truth.
Love the sprinting feeling that you can only get from a good hardtail

Ciao

Paul

Re: Canyon Bikes

I see Nerve is now 27.5", and there seems to be no Nerve+. I wonder what the travel is, but I like what I see.

Re: Canyon Bikes

Somehow odd but the Nerve AL 29 9.9SL just increased weight compared to 2013 by about 500g to about 12.1 kg. This looks to me like a suspicious move to me . I did not check in detail the components but i think they had to probably put more crap to keep the price the same although 500g is quite a bit.

Argh.
I don't want to buy any of those 650B bikes - 26" was and is big enough for me (I'm not growing anymore) , I don't need or want any bigger.

What's next? High-wheel MTBs?

Why do marketing-droids have to ruin every sport?

What's wrong with having options? Each wheel size has advantages and disadvantages.

The prices are more or less the same. However its true that this is a marketing strategy to keep prices high but not only the wheel size. Why do company have a new line each year? What the heck. They have to always change something otherwise who knows..the prices of bikes might drop (they are pretty low already right? : ).

Besides, nobody forces you to pay anything. I'm still riding my 2003 hardtail. For my riding style is enough and its light. Why do we need another line of bikes every year? They probably only changed some screw somewhere .

Joking?
26" bikes have almost disappeared now.
I've got the choice between "too big" and "even bigger".
Great!
I can understand why manufacturers don't want to design, produce, market and keep spares for three different lines - but nobody asked them to do 650B! And most certainly, nobody begged them to drop 26" either.

Mine is from 2006 and also a hard-tail.
And it's not "light" at all, compared to what is on the market today.
It doesn't make sense replacing parts on a bike forever.
Maybe on a plane worth 70 million CHF, it make sense to replace or repair pretty much anything. But not on a bike. I've already "invested" way too much money in repairs anyway....

26ers are still around, just in the gravity end of the market. And your right, sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new bike than to replace parts. Last weekend was the UCI MTB World Championships in South Africa, where Greg Minnaar (South African) won the DH race. But what's interesting is that none of the 29ers made it to the bottom of the course, no 27er placed in the top ten and Jared Graves took third on a trail bike. Jared had access to all three sizes but chose a 26er Yeti SB66. (another bike I really want). Despite a South African winning the title in SA most credit went to Jared Graves. This course has long been criticized for not being worthy of a UCI Downhill event as its not really a DH course so in theory the 29ers and 27ers should have been more successful on the most pedal friendly DH course in the entire UCI season, results however proved otherwise.
Point is, 26ers along with Rock and Roll aren't dead yet. I have a feeling 2015 will see a retro return to 26ers.
