    Bit of Fettling....

    Stripped,cleaned,re-lubed and re-cabled the Canyon(Summer bike) ready for Spring.The internal cabling is a bit of a Faff but it's the third time I've done it so I'm an old hand now.The chain is still nowhere near .75 despite doing over 2500miles so I'll probably get another Summer out of it!!Just need to put some new Tyres on and it's good to go.

    Also removed the daft ancillary levers off the lads CX bike and replaced all inners and outers.(I can't see why they put those levers on CX bikes and I don't recall ever using mine and it's not good practice for kids IMO as they've less control of the bike)

    Next job is to remove the ancillary levers off my CX!

    Ah, a fellow Canyon rider. Which one do you have? All this winter/summer bike stuff. I just use my Canyon year round outside and my Cannondale on turbo. My N+1's tend to be surfboards rather than bikes as I "only" have 3 bikes, 2 road and I mountain.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Canyon Ultimate CF SL.
    I used it all year when I first got it but then I got a couldn't miss it deal on the CX(250 brand new!!) so it's a Summer bike now.I too have 3 bikes,Summer,CX and Turbo(another too cheap to miss deal).I did have 2 MTBs too until a couple of years ago but sold them due to little usage.
    Still 5 bikes in the garage including my sons.

    What size Canyons your guys riding, and what’s your height. Imperial?

    Looking at that then I’d agree.

    I recently FITTED ancillary levers to the daughter's bike. It's a Moda Major, it's her first drop bar bike and if I'm honest, it's a bit too big for her! She was a bit of a liability on it and couldn't really brake from the hoods so felt I had to do it! She's not as confident as her brother!

    Sounds sensible Mr Hoose. Doesn't bear thinking about that she wouldn't be able to stop when she wanted, even if not 'best practice'.
