I almost never listen to random internet chatter, but when it comes to Canyon i've heard too many stories about quality issues, bad customer service and warranty. But 90% of that might be BS, who knows. Still, I can't get it out of my head.
Damn you internet!
I've heard a few stories and always wondered if Canyon is really that bad. Sadly they're one of the very few companies who are promising delivery in June-July with the Spectral, but i'm also afraid to buy a carbon frame from them, especially a full sus.
I bought a new 50L air compressor for a $100 (not cordless). That was like 4-5 years ago, it still works perfectly, and I pretty much use it every day for something.
I agree with Deniz that something like this air tank can make sense if you live in an apartment and/or travel a lot, but it shouldn't cost this much when you can buy an actual compressor for the same price (and some of these air tanks are even more expensive). I mean it's just a freaking tube that you can pump up...
I'm not a negative smartass who hates on everything, but sometimes the "bike specific" tax is ridiculous. :(
I ordered a bike with a 23 week wait, but luckily I had the option to not pay yet, only when the bike comes back in stock. Personally i'd be too afraid to pay 23 weeks in advance for a bike.
Since I haven't paid yet cancelling, the order would be pretty easy. Who knows, a bike I want more might come out in those ~6 months.
I bought some Under Armour O series 6" boxerjocks. They're so much more comfy and cooler than cotton underwear, but on the bike I can't make them work even on 2-3 hour rides.
I bought some Endura Hummvee shorts that came with very basic undershorts/liners. They cost about $25-30, so not high end stuff. The chamois is basic and thin. These feel super comfy, they barely feel warmer than boxers, and when i'm off the bike it feels like the chamois is barely even there. No diaper feeling. Sadly the padding packs out pretty quickly, and looses it's rebound and hardness.
I tried thicker liners from Decathlon that have gel inserts in the chamois, and also more expensive Endura Singletrack liners, both of them feel horrible and create pressure points that are not there even with just regular underwear.
Maybe I need a better fitting saddle, not sure.
