Wow, Canyon’s commitment to the middle of the bell curve even extended to the embargo date for this bike! I actually double checked the photos to see if Mr AXS v2 was anywhere to be seen, but it seems that the astronomical or release schedule tendencies were simply too powerful to resist.
I went through the first half of this article wondering how tempting it would have been to follow the normal tropes and talk about high school nerds or Rolling Stones lyrics. The second half I spent hoping to hear more about salt pork. I am imagining a notepad from November saying, “This bike has above average stack, below average price. Bathrooms are different here. Nothing further of note.” Anyway, I’m happy you were able to fill in a few more blanks than that.
