For more detals on how to proceed, read chapter Before every rde of ths manual. Do not rde your bke unless t has passed the functonal check one hundred per cent! On the dgtal data medum enclosed wth ths manual you wll fnd a number of mantenance and repar routnes n detal. When carryng out these routnes, be aware that the nstructons and nformaton provded n your manual only refer to ths Canyon road bke and that they do not necessarly apply to other bkes. Due to numerous desgns and model changes, t may be that some of the routnes are not descrbed n every detal. For ths reason be sure also to observe the operatng nstructons of our component supplers enclosed wth the BkeGuard. Note that the nstructons and tps may requre further explanaton dependng on varous factors, such as the experence and sklls of the person dong the work or the tools beng used, and some jobs may requre addtonal (specal) tools or measures not descrbed n the manual. Furthermore, you wll fnd plenty of servce nformaton on our webste that wll help you carry out small repar and mantenance works. For your own safety, never do work on your bcycle unless you feel absolutely sure about t. If you are n doubt or f you have any questons, please contact our servce hotlne +44 (0) ! Please note: Ths manual cannot teach you all mechancal sklls. Even a manual as bg as an encyclopaeda could not descrbe every possble combnaton of avalable bcycles and components. For ths reason ths manual focuses on your newly purchased bke and standard components by drawng your attenton to mportant notes and warnngs. It does, however, not teach you the basc sklls of a bke mechanc or help you assemble a complete bke from the Canyon frameset. Ths manual cannot teach you how to rde. For ths reason t focuses on your newly purchased bke by drawng your attenton to the most mportant notes and warnngs. Ths manual cannot teach you rdng a bke or make you famlar wth the traffc rules. Please be aware that cyclng s a hazardous actvty that requres that the rder stays n control of hs or her bke at all tmes. Lke any sport, cyclng nvolves rsk of njury and damage. By choosng to rde a bke, you assume the responsblty for the rsk. Always keep n mnd that you have no protecton technque around you, whch could avod njures, such as e.g. the bodywork or the arbag of a car. Therefore, always rde carefully and respect the other traffc partcpants. Never rde under the nfluence of drugs, medcaton, alcohol or when you are tred. Do not rde wth a second person on your bke and never rde wthout havng your hands on the handlebars. Before you set off please note: Always rde carefully so as not to endanger yourself or others.

4 4 INTENDED USE INTENDED USE 5 INTENDED USE To defne the ntended purposes for the dfferent types of bcycles, we have classfed our bkes n dfferent categores. The purpose of ths classfcaton s to defne the test requrements complyng wth the respectve stress as early as durng the development of our bkes. Ths s to ensure the hghest possble level of safety for the use of our bkes. It s therefore of major mportance that the bkes are not used under condtons beyond the ntended use, as ths bears the rsk that the bkes maxmum load s exceeded and the frame or other components are damaged. Ths can result n severe crashes. The permssble maxmum overall weght comprsng rder, luggage and bcycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certan crcumstances ths permssble maxmum weght can be further lmted by the component manufacturers recommendatons for use. The frame of your bke s marked accordng to one of the followng symbols ndcatng the category your bke belongs to. If you are not sure about the category your bke belongs to, please contact our servce centre. Condton 1 Bkes of ths category are desgned for rdng on hard-surface roads where the wheels reman n permanent contact to the ground. These are n general road racng bcycles wth racng handlebars or straght handlebars, trathlon or tme tral bcycles. The permssble maxmum overall weght comprsng rder, luggage and bcycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certan crcumstances ths permssble maxmum weght can be further lmted by the component manufacturers recommendatons for use. Proven cyclocross bkes wth racng handlebars and cantlever or dsc brakes are a specal case n ths category. In addton, these bkes are also sutable for gravel paths and off-road trals where a short loss of tyre contact wth the ground due to small stars or steps at a heght of 15 to 20 cm can occur. Condton 2 Bkes of category 2 are sutable for well-mantaned hard-surface roads where the wheels reman n permanent contact to the ground. These bkes are desgned for urban moblty and thus manly for partcpaton n road traffc and use on publc and permtted lanes. Ths category comprses urban, cty and trekkng bkes. The permssble maxmum overall weght comprsng rder, luggage and bcycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certan crcumstances ths permssble maxmum weght can be further lmted by the component manufacturers recommendatons for use. Condton 3 Bkes of ths category comprse the bcycles of the categores 1 and 2 and are n addton sutable for rough and unpaved terrans. Sporadc jumps of a maxmum heght of approx. 60 cm are also ncluded n the feld of use of these bcycles. But nexperenced rders dong jumps of ths heght may land napproprately, thus ncreasng the actng forces sgnfcantly whch may result n damage and njures. Ths category s represented by MTB hardtals and full suspenson bcycles wth short suspenson travel. Condton 4 Ths category ncludes bkes of the categores 1 to 3. In addton, bcycles of ths category are sutable for very rough and partly blocked terran wth steep slopes and hgher speeds as a result thereof. Regular, moderate jumps by experenced rders are no problem for these bcycles. The regular and durable use of the bcycles on North Shore trals and n bke parks should, however, be excluded. Due to the hgher stresses, these bcycles should be checked for possble damage after every rde. Full suspenson bkes wth medum suspenson travel are typcal for ths category.
5 6 INTENDED USE BEFORE YOUR FIRST RIDE 7 Condton 5 Ths type of use stands for very challengng, hghly blocked and extremely steep terrans, whch can only be mastered by well-traned rders wth techncal sklls. Rather hgh jumps at very hgh speeds as well as the ntensve use of specfc, dentfed bke parks or downhll trals are typcal for ths category. In the case of these bcycles t must be consdered that a thorough check for possble damage s carred out after every rde. Prelmnary damage wth clearly nferor further stress can result n falure. A regular replacement of safety-relevant components should also be taken nto account. Wearng specal protectors s strongly recommended. Full suspenson bkes wth long suspenson travel as well as drt bkes are typcal for ths category. BEFORE YOUR FIRST RIDE 1. Have you ever rdden a road, tme tral, trathlon or track bcycle? Please note that these are sports bkes. You need to get used to them and to practse on them. Make yourself gradually famlar wth your new bke n an unfrequented area and approach the rdng characterstcs step by step. Attend a rdng technque course. For more nformaton vst 2. Are you famlar wth the brake system? Canyon bkes are normally delvered wth the left brake lever operatng the front brake. Check whether the lever of the front brake s n the poston you are used to. If t s not, you wll need to tran to get used to the new confguraton, as nadvertent use of the front brake can throw you off your bke! Have the lever-to-brake assgnment changed by an expert. Full brakng; do not mtate Note that the assgnment of brake lever to brake calper can vary from country to country. Check the brake assgnment. If t does not comply wth your habts, we recommend you havng an expert change the lever-to-brake assgnment! Your new bke s equpped wth modern brakes whch may be far more powerful than those you are used to! Be sure to frst practse usng the brakes off publc roads! Do approach the maxmum possble deceleraton gradually. For more nformaton about the brakes, read chapter The brake system.!! Canyon bkes are not approved for mountng chld carrers. These bkes are not approved for towng chld tralers. Mountng a panner rack s not permtted.! The only way of rdng wth luggage s by usng a specal backpack. Keep yourself nformed by vstng our al ways updated webste at There you wll fnd an llustraton vsualsng the ntended use of all Canyon bkes. Read n any case the supplementary Speedmax user manual that you got when you bought a Speedmax CF SLX. 3. Are you famlar wth the type and functonng of the gears? If not, make yourself famlar wth the gears n a place clear of traffc. Make sure not to shft gears on the front and rear deralleur at the same tme and not to pedal wth too much force when shftng. For more nformaton about the gears, read chapter The gears. Deralleur gears If you hold your handlebars by aerobars (trathlon handlebars), you cannot reach the brake levers as quckly as you would from other postons, and your stoppng dstance therefore becomes longer. Look well ahead as you rde and be prepared for longer stoppng dstances.
6 8 BEFORE YOUR FIRST RIDE BEFORE YOUR FIRST RIDE 9 4. Are frame sze, saddle and handlebars properly adjusted? Stand over the top tube of your bke and check whether there s a clearance of 2 to 3 fngers at least between the top tube and your crotch. If there s not, contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Rdng wth a too bg frame may cause njures, when gettng off your bke quckly! The saddle should be set to a heght from whch you can just reach the pedal n ts lowest poston wth your heel. Check whether your toes reach to the floor when you are sttng on the saddle. For more nformaton about the saddle poston, read chapter Adjustng the Canyon road bke to the rder. Checkng the clearance between top tube and crotch 6. Note that you should only use your Canyon for ts ntended purpose! Road and trathlon bkes are only ntended for use on roads and lanes wth a smooth, e.g. tarred or paved surface. Cyclocross and gravel bkes are also sutable for gravel paths and off-road trals where a short loss of tyre contact wth the ground due to small stars or steps of a heght of 15 to 20 cm can occur. Track bcycles are true-bred sports bkes and only ntended for use on enclosed race tracks. The use of track bcycles on publc roads or lanes s not permtted. Canyon race machnes are desgned for rdng on tarred roads 5. Have you ever tred clpless or step-n pedals and the shoes they go wth? Before rdng wth clpless pedals for the frst tme, carefully practse lockng one shoe onto a pedal and dsengagng t whle the bke s statonary. Lean aganst a wall when practsng so that you do not topple over. Adjust the lockng and release mechansm, f necessary. Be sure frst to read the enclosed operatng nstructons whch you wll fnd enclosed. For more nformaton about the pedals, read chapter The pedal systems. Shoes for step-n pedals In general, Canyon road bkes are desgned for a permssble overall weght (rder, luggage and bcycle together) of 120 kg. In the case of road bkes equpped wth Mavc system wheels the permssble overall weght s 100 kg. Make sure not to exceed these lmt values. For more nformaton about the use, read chapter Intended use. 7. Are parts of your Canyon bke made of carbon? Please note that ths materal requres specal care and partcular use. In any case, be sure to read chapter Specal characterstcs of carbon. Track bke V-Drome Step-n pedal Carbon Especally n the case of small frame szes there s the rsk that the foot colldes wth the front wheel. Therefore, be sure to use step-n pedals, f possble. In addton, make sure the cleats are accurately adjusted. A lack of practce when usng clpless pedals or too much sprng tenson n the mechansm can lead to a very frm connecton, from whch you cannot quckly step out! Rsk of an accdent! Canyon road, tme tral, trathlon or track bkes are hgh-end sports equpment, representng lghtweght constructon as pnnacle of engneerng. Also be a professonal when t comes to handlng of the materal. Msuse, unprofessonal assembly or nsuffcent servcng can render the racng machne unsafe. Rsk of an accdent!
7 10 BEFORE EVERY RIDE BEFORE EVERY RIDE 11 BEFORE EVERY RIDE CHECK THE FOLLOWING POINTS BEFORE EVERY RIDE: 1. Are the quck-release levers of the front and rear wheel, seat post and other components properly closed? For more nformaton, read chapter How to use quck-releases and thru axles. 2. Are the tyres n good condton and do they have suffcent pressure? Spn the wheels to check whether the rms are true. Also look out for tyres wth ruptured sdes or broken axles or spokes whle you do ths. For more nformaton, read chapter The wheels - tyres, nner tubes and ar pressure. 3. Test the brakes whle standng by frmly pullng the brake levers towards the handlebars. A pressure pont should be reached after the lever has only travelled a short dstance; the lever must, however, not touch the handlebars! The brake pads of rm brakes must ht the rm wth ther entre surface. They must not touch the tyres. For more nformaton about the brakes, read chapter The brake system. Check the tyre pressure 4. If you ntend to rde on publc roads or n the dark, check the lghtng set, see chapter Legal requrements. 5. Let your Canyon bounce on the ground from a small heght. If there s any rattlng, see where t comes from. Check the bearngs and bolted connectons, f necessary. 6. The major accessory for a successful cyclng tour s a small tool bag ftted underneath the saddle. The tool kt should nclude two plastc tyre levers, the most commonly used Allen keys, a spare tube, a tyre repar kt, your moble phone and a lttle cash. Do not forget a tyre pump mounted to the frame. 7. Take a sturdy lock wth you, f you ntend to leave your Canyon n a publc area. The only way to protect your Canyon aganst theft n a publc area s to lock t to an mmovable object! Never rde wthout lghtng n the dark Emergency kt You should not be able to pull the brake lever all the way to the handlebars Improperly closed quck-releases can cause bcycle components to come loose. Rsk of an accdent! Do not use your Canyon, f t fals on one of these ponts! To safe your Canyon from damage, please! observe the maxmum overall load and the regulatons regardng the transport of luggage and chldren gven n chapter Intended use. Furthermore, we recommend readng chapter Transport of your Canyon bke before transportng your Canyon road bke by car or plane. Durng use your Canyon s undergong stress resultng from the surface of the road and the rder s acton. Due to these dynamc loads, the dfferent parts of your bke react wth wear. Please check your Canyon regularly for wear marks as well as for scratches, dents, bent parts and ncpent crackng. Components that have passed ther normal servce lfe may suddenly fal. Have your Canyon nspected regularly so that components can be replaced, f necessary. For more nformaton on mantenance and operatonal safety, read chapters General notes on care and nspecton, Recommended tghtenng torques and Servce and mantenance schedule.
8 12 ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD 13 ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD Assemblng the bke from the BkeGuard s no wtchcraft, but you should proceed wth care and delberaton. Unprofessonal assembly can render the bke unsafe. Frst we should lke to make you famlar wth the varous components of your Canyon. Unfold the front cover of your bcycle manual road bke. Here you wll fnd the llustraton of a Canyon road bke showng all the essental components. Keep ths page folded out whle you are readng. Ths means that you can quckly fnd n the text the component that s beng referred to. The llustraton shows an arbtrary Canyon road bke ths s not what every bke wll look lke. CHECKING THE CONTENTS OF THE BIKEGUARD The BkeGuard contans the assembled frameset wth the rear wheel mounted and all add-on parts as well as the front wheel that s sometmes packed separately n a wheel bag, the saddle wth seat post, a box wth small parts (e.g. quck-releases, reflectors and pedals, as the case may be) and the toolcase wth Canyon Torque Wrench ncl. bts, Canyon mountng paste as well as the bcycle manual road bke wth enclosed CD. GENERAL INFORMATION ON ROAD BIKE ASSEMBLY Your Canyon had been fully assembled at the factory and gven a test run. The bcycle should be fully functonal wthout any further adjustments beng made once the assembly steps explaned below have been completed. The followng secton gves you a concse descrpton of the assembly. In the event that you are nether sklled nor experenced n that knd of work, please read the more detaled chapters n your bcycle manual road bke; also observe the nstructons of the component manufacturers on the enclosed CD. Before your frst rde, carry out the checks descrbed n chapter Before every rde. LIST OF TOOLS REQUIRED 1 USING THE CANYON TORQUE WRENCH We regard the use of a torque wrench as essental so as to ensure the two parts can be fxed together securely and safely. 2 3 Frst, open the BkeGuard. To do ths, only use a box cutter or a smlar knfe wth a very short blade. Never use any knd of knfe on the bcycle tself. When usng a box cutter make sure netherto damage the component nor to hurt yourself. Make t a rule to cut away from you and the component! Share the pleasure that your new Canyon brngs and ask a helper to assst you n unpackng t from the BkeGuard and n assemblng t. The easest and safest way to assemble the bke s when you use a workstand or ask someone to help you. For the assembly of your new Canyon bke you need the followng tools suppled n the toolcase: Canyon torque wrench ncl. bts (1) optonal: specfc Canyon torque wrench for seat post fxng (2) Canyon assembly paste (3) Do not clamp a frame tube or a carbon seat! post of your Canyon n the holdng jaws of the workstand! Be sure to only use a sutable alumnum seat post for clampng. It s best to use a workstand that holds the frame from nsde at three ponts or else ask someone to help whle you assemble your bke. Exceedng the maxmum torque at the clampng bolts (e.g. at the stem, steerer tube, handlebars or seat post) leads to an excessvely hgh clampng force. Ths can cause the component to fal and hence there s a hgh assocated rsk of accdents. In addton, the product guarantee would be null and vod n such a case. Screws or bolts that are too loose or are done up too tghtly can cause a falure and hence lead to an accdent. Always follow exactly the tghtenng torque detals from Canyon. Assemble your Canyon usng the Canyon torque wrench enclosed wth the Bke- Guard.
9 14 ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD 15 USING THE CANYON ASSEMBLY PASTE UNPACKING Put the matchng bt nto the holder of the Canyon torque wrench. Insert the Allen key fully nto the screw head. Carbon fbre components are partcularly vulnerable to damage caused by excessve clampng force. Canyon assembly paste creates extra frcton between two surfaces, allowng the necessary tghtenng torque to be reduced by up to 30 %. It also retans ts effectveness n wet condtons and provdes maxmum protecton aganst corroson. Canyon assembly paste can be used for all carbon and alumnum connectons. It s deal for ths purpose, as t does not harden. Remove the protectve cardboard at one end and the box wth small parts. Take out the cardboard box wth the front wheel stowed n parallel to the bke frame n the BkeGuard. The front wheel may be packed addtonally n a wheel bag. Slowly turn the handle of the Canyon torque wrench. Once the bolt s gettng tght, the ponter moves over the scale. Stop the turnng movement as soon as the ponter reaches the number for the specfed torque. Make sure to only use the specfc Canyon torque wrench suppled to fx the seat post of the Ultmate CF SLX, Ultmate CF SL, Endurace CF SL and SLX and Inflte CF SLX models (from model year 2018 on). It works lke the general torque wrench. Ths s especally useful n the clampng areas of handlebars and stem, steerer tube and stem and seat post and seat tube,.e. three areas where too much clampng force can damage ether component, causng component falure or vodng the warranty. By reducng the clampng force, Canyon assembly paste releves stress on senstve carbon surfaces, preventng damage to fbres or the crackng of the carbon substructure. Pror to applyng Canyon assembly paste, remove drt partcles and lubrcant resdues from the surfaces to be treated. Apply a thn and even flm of Canyon assembly paste to the cleaned surfaces usng a brush or a chamos. Mount the components, as specfed. Use the Canyon torque wrench and never exceed the prescrbed maxmum tghtenng torque! Remove excessve Canyon assembly paste and re-seal the small sachet after use. Please note that the saddle and the seat post are fxed to the front wheel. Put the cardboard box carefully asde. Keep the entre packagng materal as well as the BkeGuard n a dry place. If you ntend to shp your Canyon or to take t wth you on a trp, you wll have everythng at hand. You wll not fnd the wheels packed n wheel bags n every BkeGuard.
10 16 ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD ASSEMBLY FROM THE BIKEGUARD 17 Open the quck-release or the thru axle at the rear axle. Proceed as you would when mountng the front wheel. Verfy, n ths case as well, the correct poston of the small sprngs. Read up on quck-releases n chapters How to use quck-releases and thru axles and Mountng the front wheel. Remove the protectve flm from both chanstays as well as the tape at the drop-out f provded. Remove the toolcase wth the bcycle manual road bke and the tools from the small parts box. Carefully lft the frame ncludng components and rear wheel out of the BkeGuard and place t down. Ask your helper, f necessary, to hold the bke. On the other hand there s the Canyon handlebar-stem-combnaton whch s also sutable for the Aheadset -headset system. The assembly of the Canyon road bke dffers accordng to the system your Canyon road bke has. For ths reason both systems are descrbed n the followng. It s recommended that you manually remove the protectve materal. If ths s not possble, carefully use a box cutter or a par of scssors. Close the quck-release or the thru axle and verfy that the wheel s securely tghtened. Read the chapters How to use quck-releases and thru axles and Mountng the front wheel. Immedately close the brake release lever (Shmano, SRAM) or slde the button on the brake lever (Campagnolo) back to ts orgnal poston. MOUNTING THE HANDLEBARS OR THE CANYON HANDLEBAR-STEM-COMBINATION MOUNTING THE REAR WHEEL Open the rear brake by releasng the release lever on the brake (Shmano, SRAM) or by sldng the button on the brake lever (Campagnolo) to allow for the lever to tlt back a lttle. Check whether both wheels are properly seated n the drop-outs and whether they run accurately n the centre between the fork arms and rear stays, respectvely. Spn both wheels to make sure they run true. For more nformaton read the chapter The wheels - tyres, nner tubes and ar pressure. Canyon road bkes are delvered wth dfferent systems. Some road bke models wth larger frame szes are delvered wth the rear wheel dsmounted. Read up on road bke brakes n the chapter The brake system. There s on the one hand the proven Aheadset -stem and handlebar system. Hold the handlebars tghtly whle lftng! the frame out so that they are not twsted, cannot drop and get damaged. When usng a box cutter make sure you do! not damage the component or njure yourself. Make t a rule to cut away from you and the component! Actuate the rght shft lever untl the rear deralleur s n ts outermost poston. Pull the rear deralleur slghtly backward, poston the chan on the outermost sprocket and mount the rear wheel. Make sure that the wheel s accurately centred between the drop-outs. Check whether the brake pads ht the! brakng surfaces of the rms wth ther entre surface. After the wheel mountng do a brake test at! standstll. Squeezng the brake lever should generate a clear-cut brakng response before the lever touches the handlebars.

For a transport by car be sure to secure your bke approprately n order to avod any shftng nsde the car. If you are n doubt or f you have any questons, read the more detaled chapter of the manual further below or on the enclosed CD or contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Always secure the bcycle or bcycle components when puttng t/them nto the nteror of your car. Parts shftng around can mpar your safety. The Canyon BkeShuttle The Canyon BkeGuard Most clamps of bke carrer systems are! potental sources of damage to large-dameter frame tubes! As a result thereof carbon frames may fal abruptly durng use, alumnum frames are susceptble to dents. Sutable, specal-purpose models are, however, avalable n the car accessory trade. HOW TO USE QUICK-RELEASES AND THRU AXLES Although the use of quck-releases s very easy, they have repeatedly been the cause of accdents as a result of a wrong handlng. Quck-release retenton mechansms essentally consst of two manpulable parts: The hand lever on one sde of the hub whch creates a clampng force va a cam when you close t. The tghtenng nut on the other sde of the hub wth whch to set the ntal tenson on the threaded rod. HOW TO SECURELY MOUNT THE WHEEL WITH QUICK-RELEASES Open the quck-release. You should now be able to read OPEN on the lever. Move the lever back, as f to close t. Now you should be able to read CLOSE on the outsde of the lever. From the start of the closng movement up to about the frst half of ts travel the lever should move very easly,.e. wthout clampng the wheel. Over the second half of ts travel, the force you need to move t, should ncrease consderably. Towards the end of ts travel the lever should be very hard to move. Use the ball of your thumb whle your fngers pull on an mmovable part such as the fork or frame. Hand lever and locknut Open the quck-release lever Close the quck-release lever Improperly mounted wheels may throw you off your bcycle or result n serous accdents! In the event your Canyon has not been! packed for dspatch accordng to the enclosed packng nstructons, you have no rght to clam refund of repar costs for possbly occurrng transport damage from Canyon Bcycles GmbH. When takng your bke by car, make sure to remove all parts from your bke (tools, panner bags, chld carrers etc.) whch mght come loose durng transport and cause an accdent. Never rde a bcycle wthout havng frst checked whether the wheels are securely fastened! A wheel that comes loose whlst rdng wll throw you off your bcycle! If your bcycle s equpped wth quck releases, be sure to lock the frame to an mmovable object together wth the wheels when you leave t outsde.
20 36 QUICK-RELEASES AND THRU AXLES QUICK-RELEASES AND THRU AXLES 37 In ts end poston the lever should be parallel to the bke,.e. t should not stck out to the sde. The lever must le close to the frame so that t cannot be opened accdentally. To check whether the lever s securely locked try to turn t whle t s closed. If you can turn the lever around, the wheel s not securely fastened. Open the lever agan and screw the tghtenng nut clockwse by half a turn to ncrease the ntal tenson. Close the lever agan and check t agan for tghtness. If the lever can no longer be turned, t s properly fastened. Fnally lft the bke a few centmetres from the ground so that the wheel s suspended and ht the tyre from above. If t s properly fastened, the wheel wll reman frmly fxed n the drop-outs of the frame. If your seat post s equpped wth a quck-release mechansm, check whether the saddle s frmly fxed by tryng to twst t relatve to the frame. To check whether the lever s securely locked try to turn t whle t s closed The quck-release lever ought to be nearly parallel to the wheel and must not stck out HOW TO SECURELY MOUNT THE WHEEL WITH THRU AXLES The RWS system from DT Swss for road racng bkes ncludes thru axles whch provde the forks and the rear frames wth a hgher stffness. Whenever your road bke s exposed to hgh loads, t remans drectonally stable. For detaled nformaton on how to mount a front wheel wth RWS system from DT Swss, read chapter Assembly from the BkeGuard further above n ths manual. The rear wheel s mounted n the same way. To remove the wheel put the thru-axle lever nto the axle. Make sure that the thru-axle lever (wth pentagonal pn) s accurately n the axle. Turn the thru-axle lever antclockwse. Release the thru axle completely by about two and a half turns, hold the wheel n ts poston and remove the axle from the hub. RWS system from DT Swss for road bkes Rear wheel thru axle Make sure the levers of both quckreleases are always on the left sde of your Canyon (.e. opposte the chan drve). Ths wll help you to avod mountng the front wheel the wrong way round. Wth nsuffcently closed quck-releases the wheels can come loose, thus creatng a serous rsk of accdent! In ts end poston the lever should be at rght angle to the quck-release axle As an ant-theft measure you can replace the quck-releases by specal locks. They can only be opened and closed wth a specal, coded key or an Allen key. If you are n doubt or f you have any questons, please contact our servce hotlne +44 (0) ! Improperly mounted wheels may throw you off your bcycle or result n serous accdents!

21 38 ADD-ON PARTS AND CHANGES CARBON 39 WHAT TO BEAR IN MIND WHEN ADDING COMPONENTS OR MAKING CHANGES Canyon bkes are sport machnes whch are ftted accordng to the respectve usage. Please note that the mountng of mudguards or such lke may mpar the functonng and hence the safety whlst rdng. Before buyng and mountng any accessory, please check whether ths partcular accessory part matches wth your Canyon. Wth addtonal bells, horns or lghtng accessores, nform yourself thoroughly whether they are permtted and tested and accordngly approved for use on publc roads. Battery/accumulator-operated lghts have to be marked wth the wavy lne and the letter K (see chapter Legal requrements ). If you want to mount a panner rack or a chld seat or traler, please read chapter Intended use beforehand to make sure t s permtted. If a mountng s permtted, n general, please contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) and ask for sutable models. Only perform jobs you are absolutely sure of. Mudguards/wheel protectons Panner rack Retroftted accessores, such as mudguards, carrers etc., can mpar the functonng of your Canyon. We therefore advse you to use accessores from our product range. Ths wll ensure you use matchng components. SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF CARBON Carbon fbre renforced plastc, also referred to as carbon (or CRP), has a number of specal characterstcs compared to conventonal lghtweght materals. Havng some knowledge of these characterstcs s mportant so that you can enjoy your hgh-qualty Canyon for many years and have full confdence n ts materal. Carbon fbre renforced plastc has proved ts value n road racng wth numerous wns. Components made of ths materal are extremely lghtweght and - presupposng proper desgn, processng and treatment - of outstandng strength and stress resstance. However, there s one partcular drawback of ths materal ts brttleness. Therefore, when subjected to stress t does not undergo permanent deformaton, even though ts nner structure may have sustaned damage. In the extreme case, the fbres may separate, thus resultng n the so-called delamnaton and reducng the strength propertes of the component. In contrast to steel or alumnum, carbon components that have sustaned damage to ther nner fbres as a result of excessve stress wll show no outwardly vsble deformaton. Carbon Be attentve durng rdng. If your carbon component produces any creakng, ths may ndcate a materal defect. Stop usng your bke and contact our servce hotlne to dscuss the steps to be taken. For your own safety, never ask for CRP components to be repared! Damaged carbon components should be replaced mmedately and prevented from beng used by anyone else. Carbon components should never be exposed to hgh temperatures, as occurrng durng powder coatng or enamellng. The heat generated by these processes may destroy the component. Do not leave carbon components n a car n drect sunlght for prolonged perods or near sources of heat. Handlebars, stems and forks should only be replaced by a sklled mechanc. Be sure to follow the operatng of the accessory manufacturer n any case. When mountng other components and accessores, t s your responsblty to mount the components approprately. Brng your Canyon to our servce workshop, f you have the slghtest doubt. Components that come loose or break off as a result of mproper mountng can cause serous accdents.

In case of any questons regardng com ponent assembly, compatblty or f you want to make any changes, read the more detaled chapter of the manual further below or on the enclosed CD or contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Carbon components that have been subjected to overstress are therefore lable to fal durng use, possbly causng an accdent wth unforeseeable consequences. If you have had a crtcal ncdent wth your bke, we advse you to have the relevant component nspected by our servce workshop, or better stll, the whole Canyon. Always park your Canyon carefully and make sure t does not topple over. Carbon frames and parts may already sustan damage by smply topplng over. Most clamps of bke carrer systems are potental sources of damage to large-dameter frame tubes! As a result thereof carbon frames may suddenly fal durng use. Sutable, specal-purpose models are avalable n the car accessory trade. Make sure the maxmum overall weght of rder, luggage (rucksack) and bcycle does not exceed 100 kg. Carbon wheels are generally not approved for traler towng!
22 40 CARBON CARBON 41 SPECIAL FEATURES OF CARBON WHEELS CARE INSTRUCTIONS As carbon wheels are made of carbon fbre renforced plastc they come wth partcular aerodynamc propertes and low weght. WHAT TO BEAR IN MIND WHEN BRAKING WITH CAR- BON WHEELS As the brakng surfaces are made of carbon, there are some thngs to keep n mnd. Only use brake pads that are sutable for carbon wheels. We recommend that you always use the brake pads of the wheel manufacturer! Wheels wth carbon rms have a partcular brake behavour Components made of carbon renforced fbre should be cleaned wth a soft rag and clear water, to whch a lttle dsh lqud may be added, f necessary. Tough stans of ol or grease can be removed wth a petroleum-based cleanng agent. Never use degreasng agents contanng acetone, trchloroethlyene, methyl chlorde etc., solvents or non-neutral, chemcal or solvent-contanng cleanng agents that could attack the surface! You can use car wax to protect the surface and make t shne. Polshng agents or varnsh cleaner contan sold consttuents that mght attack the surface. Use car wax to protect the surface Shmano and Campagnolo offer carbon brake pads, as well. These are, however, desgned to match Shmano and Campagnolo rms. Carbon brake pads usually wear down faster than conventonal brake pads. Keep n mnd that the brakng response of the rms needs gettng used to, n partcular n wet condtons. Therefore, test your brakes n a place free of traffc untl you have full control of your bcycle. The brake surfaces of the carbon rms are senstve to heat. Therefore, when you are rdng n the mountans, avod any drag brakng. Rdng downhll e.g. wth a permanently actvated rear wheel brake may heat up the materal and result n a deformaton. The rm may sustan damage and the nner tube may burst, thus causng an accdent. Always use both brakes smultaneously and release them ntermttently to allow the materal to cool off. Do not clamp a carbon frame or seat post! n the holdng jaws of a workstand! The parts may sustan damage. Mount a sturdy (alumnum) seat post nstead and use ths to clamp the frame, or use a workstand that holds the frame at three ponts nsde the frame trangle or that clamps the fork and bottom bracket shell. Check the condton of the brakes and make sure you only rde wth brake pads that are sutable for carbon rms! Check the condton of the brake pads at short ntervals, as they mght wear down faster than wth alumnum rms. Note that your bke s brakng power s greatly reduced n wet condtons. Do not go for a rde, when t s about to ran or n wet condtons. Nevertheless, f you wll fnd yourself wth your Canyon on a wet or most road, rde partcularly carefully and at clearly reduced speed. Keep the brakng surfaces of carbon wheels free of mantenance agents and lubrcants! Do not clamp a carbon frame or seat post! n the holdng jaws of a workstand! The parts may sustan damage. Mount a sturdy (alumnum) seat post nstead and use ths to clamp the frame, or use a work stand that holds the frame at three ponts nsde the frame trangle or that clamps the fork and bottom bracket shell. Dependng on the respectve usage, lghtweght components made of carbon may wear down faster. We therefore strongly recommend that you follow the servce ntervals and have lghtweght components checked and possbly replaced regularly by our servce workshop and/or other specalst workshops. Protect the exposed areas of your carbon! frame (e.g. the undersde of the down tube) wth specal pads aganst rubbng cables or stone chps. Specal pads protect carbon from damage Avod greasng carbon components, n! general. Grease would penetrate the surface of the carbon materal, reducng the coeffcent of frcton and hence mparng the stablty of the clampng jont when tghtened wthn the permssble torque range. Once greased carbon fbre may never ever be fxed n a secure and safe way agan! Check your carbon component regularly, e.g. when cleanng your bke, for external damage, such as notches, cracks, dents, dscolouratons etc. If the cloth gets caught on somethng, ths area must be examned. Stop usng your Canyon. Contact mmedately our servce hotlne at +44 (0)
23 42 SPECIAL FEATURES OF TRIATHLON, TRACK BIKES AND TIME TRIAL MACHINES SPECIAL FEATURES OF TRIATHLON, TRACK BIKES AND TIME TRIAL MACHINES 43 SPECIAL FEATURES OF TRIATHLON, TRACK BIKES AND TIME TRIAL MACHINES TIME TRIAL HANDLEBARS In trathlon sport and tme tral, where a partcularly aerodynamc seatng poston s mportant, so called aero handlebars are used. Wth these aero models the shft levers are often postoned at the handlebar ends, the brake levers at the ends of bull-horn handlebars. When you rde wth your back n horzontal poston, the brake levers are out of reach and the reacton tme extends whch makes your stoppng dstance longer. For ths reason t s very mportant for you to rde partcularly antcpatory. Wthn certan lmts the poston of the handlebars can be adjusted accordng to your personal preferences. That s to say the straght part of the handlebars should pont slghtly downwards or upwards, whereas the upward nclnaton should not exceed 30 degrees. Make sure your forearms are always comfortably rested,.e. the elbows should project the armrests a lttle towards the rear. The rdng behavour of tme tral machnes needs gettng used to The elbows should protrude a lttle to the rear beyond the arm rests TIME TRIAL BAR END SHIFTERS Wth Shmano, SRAM and Campagnolo bar end shfters for trathlon and tme tral use the shfter s pressed downwards to move the chan to the smaller sprockets n the rear,.e. to acheve a hgher gear, and to the smaller chanrngs n the front,.e. to acheve a smaller gear. By pullng the shfter upwards the chan can be moved to the bgger sprockets and chanrngs. The shftng of a gear lever s communcated to the rear deralleur va bowden cable. Then the rear deralleur swvels, causng the chan to clmb onto the next sprocket. It s therefore mportant when changng gears to contnue pedallng smoothly wthout force as long as the chan s movng between sprockets or chanrngs! There are, however, specal gudes n the chanrngs of today s bkes whch allow for swtchng gears under force. Changng gears under load shortens, however, the servce lfe of your chan consderably. Furthermore, ths may cause the chan to jam between chanstay and chanrngs (also referred to as chan-suck ). Therefore, avod changng gears whle pedallng wth force, n partcular when changng gears wth the front deralleur. TRACK BIKES Track bkes do not have brakes. The rear wheel hub s wthout freewheel. The cranks always rotate wth the wheels. Therefore, when you start rdng a track bke, let yourself help by an experenced traner. Bar end shfters operate rear and front deralleur Rear deralleur Track bke Trathlon bkes and tme tral machnes are! specfc n terms of rdng characterstcs. Make yourself gradually famlar wth your new bke n an unfrequented area and approach the rdng characterstcs step by step. Note that the dstance you need to stop your bcycle ncreases, whle rdng wth your hands on aerobars. The brake levers are not wthn easy reach. Track bkes dffer completely from usual road racng bcycles. Carefully approach rdng wthout freewheel and wthout brakes.
24 44 AFTER AN ACCIDENT AFTER AN ACCIDENT 45 AFTER AN ACCIDENT 4. Make sure the saddle s not twsted usng the top tube or the bottom bracket shell as a reference. 1. Check whether the wheels are stll frmly fxed n the drop-outs and whether the rms are stll centred wth respect to the frame or fork. Spn the wheels and watch the clearance between brake pads and rms. If the wdth of the clearance changes markedly and you have no way to true the rm where you are, you wll need to open the brakes a lttle, f necessary, so that the rm can run between the brake pads wthout touchng them. In ths case remember that the brakes wll not act as powerfully as you are used to. For more nformaton, read chapters The brake system and The wheels. 2. Check whether the handlebars and stem are nether bent nor ruptured and whether they are level and uprght. Check whether the stem s frmly fxed n the fork by tryng to twst the handlebars relatve to the front wheel. Also, brefly lean on the brake levers to make sure the handlebars are frmly fxed n the stem. For more nformaton, see chapters Adjustng the Canyon road bke to the rder and The headset. Check the relable clampng of both wheels between the drop-outs Try twstng the handlebars relatve to the front wheel 5. Lft your bke up a few centmetres and let t bounce onto the ground. If ths causes any sort of nose, search for loosened bolts. 6. Fnally, take a good look at the whole bke to detect any deformaton, dscolouraton or cracks. Only rde back very carefully by takng the shortest possble way, f your bke went through ths check wthout any doubt. Do not accelerate or brake hard and do not rde your bke out of the saddle. If you are n doubt about the performance of your bke, have yourself pcked up by car, nstead of rskng anythng. Back home the bke must be examned thoroughly. Please read the more detaled chapters of the manual further below or on the enclosed CD or contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Make sure the saddle s not twsted usng the top tube as a reference Check carbon components wth partcular attenton and replace the parts for your safety, f you have the slghtest doubt 3. See whether the chan stll runs on the chanrng and sprockets. If your bke fell over to the chan sde, check that the gears stll functon properly. Ask somebody to lft the bcycle by the saddle and gently shft through all the gears. Pay partcular attenton when swtchng to the small gears, makng sure the rear deralleur does not get too close to the spokes as the chan clmbs onto the larger sprockets. If the deralleur or the drop-outs have been bent, ths can cause the rear deralleur to collde wth the spokes rsk of accdent! Ths n turn can destroy the rear deralleur, the rear wheel or the frame. Check the front deralleur, as a damaged front deralleur can throw off the chan, thus nterruptng the power tran of the bcycle (see chapter The gears ). Verfy that the chan stll runs on the chanrng and sprockets well. Please note the partculars gven n chapter Specal characterstcs of carbon, as Carbon components whch have suffered from an mpact force as well as bent parts made of alumnum may brake wthout prevous warnng. They must not be repared,.e. straghtened, as the rsk of breakage would stll reman mmnent. Ths apples n partcular to forks, handlebars, stems, crank sets, seat posts and pedals. If n doubt, t s always the better choce to have these parts replaced, as your safety comes frst. Replace lghtweght components after an accdent for you own safety
25 46 FRAMESETS ASSEMBLY FRAMESETS ASSEMBLY 47 FRAMESETS ASSEMBLY TECHNICAL DATA Frames are delvered ready for assembly,.e. wth threads cut and bearng seats and seat tube faced. There s no need for any machnng on the frame. Do not modfy the frame or any of ts attachments, e.g. the adjustable cable gudes etc., by flng, borng or the lke. Canyon offers the hgh-qualty carbon and alumnum frames as bare frames for ndvdual fttng wth components. The person completng and mountng the add-on parts must therefore ensure that all components are compatble and properly mounted. There s a vast varety of avalable add-on parts, makng t mpossble for Canyon to cover every concevable opton n ths manual. Canyon cannot be held responsble for any component combnaton possble. We strongly advse you to carefully read the component manufacturers operatng nstructons, as well. Falures n selectng bke components can, n prncple, result n your Canyon beng unsafe. We therefore advse you to have your bke assembled by a sklled mechanc or by our servce centre. For your own safety, never do any work unless you feel absolutely sure about t. Canyon Ultmate CF frameset Have your Canyon assembled n our servce centre! These nstructons may requre further explanatons, dependng on the experence and/or sklls of the person dong the work, and some jobs may requre addtonal (specal) tools, such as specal dsmantlng tools or addtonal nstructons. Do not clamp the frame nto an assembly! stand by ts tubes! Ths could cause damage to the thn-walled tubes. Frst mount a sturdy alumnum seat post and use ths to clamp the frame, or use an assembly stand whch holds the frame at three ponts from nsde or whch holds the fork and bottom bracket shell. Mount all components onto the frame by usng hghgrade assembly grease (except for carbon seat posts, stems on forks wth a carbon steerer tube and all seat posts on carbon frames). Ths helps to avod corroson. If you omt the grease, you may fnd t mpossble to dsassemble your Canyon at a later date. Canyon road bke frames are delvered wth the headset and fork already mounted. Tghten the bolts carefully by approachng the maxmum permssble torque n small steps. Check the secure seat of the component, as descrbed n the relevant chapters. For parts wth no torque range gven, tghten the bolts gradually to the maxmum torque and check n between regularly the relable ft of the component.! The stem ncluded n the delvery s the only stem approved for assembly. Whoever assembles a Canyon bke frame from a bare frame carres the responsblty for ensurng that the components are selected and mounted n accordance wth the manufacturers gudelnes, generally accepted standards and the state of the art n scence and technology. In case there are any questons regardng compatblty of ndvdual parts, please contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Always observe the tghtenng torques ndcated Make t a rule to use a torque wrench All carbon fbres of the Canyon F10 frame! were arranged n a way to meet the strength specfcatons for those drectons of force to whch they are normally subjected. For ths reason the rveted cable stops must only be subjected to forces as they are exerted by the gear or brake cable. Do not pull on them at an oblque angle or aganst the drecton of the cable,.e. away from the frame, e.g. n an attempt to alter the effectve cable length. Ths could otherwse cause damage to the frame. Some components have torque specfca tons prnted or labelled on them. Be sure to observe these specfcatons. Also follow the component manufacturers operatng nstructons enclosed wth the delvery!

Canyon road bkes and framesets are always delvered wth fully assembled forks and adjusted headsets. All frame models have a suffcently fastened replaceable deralleur hanger. Observe the ndcated torque value on the deralleur hanger tself. Do not exceed the maxmum torque values! BOTTLE CAGE BOTTOM BRACKET BEARINGS Dependng on the model Canyon road bkes are ftted wth dfferent bottom bracket systems, Press Ft BB 91 wth 86.5 mm beng used preferably. Common cartrdge bearngs can be mounted drectly nto the bottom bracket shell of all models wth hghgrade grease. Observe the torque specfcatons of the bottom bracket manufacturer. Fully mounted and adjusted headset wth stem and fork Use a maxmum torque of 5 Nm. Do not exceed the maxmum torque of 5 Nm. CABLE STOPS The cable stops rveted onto the Canyon Ultmate CF frame must only be subjected to forces actng n the same drecton as the gear or brake cables. Forces actng at an oblque angle or aganst the drecton of the cable can cause damage to the frame. Do not exceed the maxmum torque of 1.5 Nm when replacng the replaceable deralleur hanger REAR FRAME WIDTH All road bke frames: 130 mm Track bke V-Drome: 120 mm Bottom bracket bearng Do not exceed the maxmum torque of 5 Nm when tghtenng the bottle cage When replacng the deralleur hanger, make sure to apply a lttle grease between deralleur hanger and frame!
27 50 FRAMESETS ASSEMBLY ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER 51 SEAT POST When selectng a new seat post make sure t has the same nomnal dameter as the frame s seat tube. You should be able to slde t n easly wthout pressng or turnng. A msmatch between frame and seat post can cause falure of the seat post. Before mountng the seat post on the frame make sure the seat tube s absolutely free of sharp edges and burrs. If ether the seat post or the frame s made of carbon, then both parts have to be free of ol and grease. Clean and deburr the seat tube, f necessary. Take care not to overtghten the seat post bnder bolt or quck-release. Be sure to read the notes gven n chapter Adjustng the saddle to the correct heght as well as the permtted torques n chapter General notes on care and nspecton and follow the operatng nstructons of the component manufacturers, as well. Overtghtenng may cause a seat post falure, resultng n a crash and/or njury of the rder. Make sure the seat post matches accurately the frame Take care not to overtghten the seat post bnder bolt ADJUSTING THE CANYON ROAD BIKE TO THE RIDER No matter whether you want to rde n streamlned poston or relaxed on a Canyon racng machne. The (seatng) poston s crucal for your well-beng and the development of your rdng performance on your Canyon. Therefore, be sure to adjust both saddle and handlebars of your Canyon as accurately as possble to your needs. In prncple, road racng bcycles are sports bkes desgned for speed. For ths reason alone rdng a road racng bcycle requres certan basc precondtons of the trunk, shoulder and neck muscles. Your body heght s the decsve crteron when choosng the frame sze of your Canyon. By choosng a specfc type of bke you already roughly determne the posture you wll be rdng n. However, some components of your Canyon are desgned n a way that you can adjust them to your proportons up to a certan degree. These nclude the seat post, the stem and the brake levers. Be sure there s enough clearance between crotch and top tube Typcal poston of a road racng cyclst Observe the nformaton on seat post dameters gven under servce Use Canyon carbon assembly paste to acheve a frm seat of the seat post. Even a slght msmatch between seat post and seat tube dameter can lead to a rupture of frame or carbon seat post. Ths can result n an accdent or njury to the rder. Never grease a carbon seat post or the seat tube of a carbon frame. Slde your seat post nto the seat tube beyond ts mnmum mark and make sure ts end reaches beyond the top tube. Never rde your Canyon wth the mnmum mark of the seat post beng vsble. Never rde a bke wth a too hgh frame, resultng n a low crotch clearance when you stand over the bke. The Canyon Perfect Poston System system (PPS) offers you the possblty to select your Canyon perfectly tuned to your body wthout test rde. For more detals on the PPS vst our webste at All the tasks descrbed n the followng requre some experence, approprate tools and manual sklls. After carryng out assembly work, always make a short check (see chapter Before every rde ) and do a test rde n an unfrequented place or on a quet road. Ths wll allow you to safely check whether everythng s n good order. If you are unsure about how to do somethng, t wll be better just to check your seatng poston. If n doubt, ask an expert to adjust your Canyon.
28 52 ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER SADDLE HEIGHT SADDLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER 53 ADJUSTING THE SADDLE TO THE CORRECT HEIGHT The correct saddle heght s all a matter of how t allows you to pedal. Attenton: When pedallng, the ball of your bg toe should be postoned above the centre of the pedal spndle. Wth your feet n ths poston you should not be able to stretch your legs completely at the lowest pont. If the saddle s too hgh, you wll have trouble passng through the lowest pont and your pedallng wll become awkward. If the saddle s too low, you may soon fnd your knees achng. You can check the heght of your saddle n the followng smple way. Ths s best done wearng flat-soled shoes. St on the saddle and put one heel on the pedal at ts lowest pont. In ths poston your leg should be fully stretched and your hps should not be tlted to ether sde. To adjust the saddle heght loosen the bnder bolt or quck-release lever (read chapter How to use quck-releases and thru axles beforehand). Use a sutable tool to release the seat post bnder bolt by turnng t antclockwse. Do not pull the seat post out as far as to let the mark on the shaft come nto vew. In the case of frames wth long seat tubes whch contnue beyond the top tube, the seat post should at least reach below the heght of the top tube! Ths can mean a mnmum nserton length of 10 centmetres (4.5 n.) or more. To adjust the saddle heght loosen the seat post bnder bolt The leg must be fully stretched wth the heel on the pedal at ts lowest pont The mnmum nserton depths marked on! seat post and frame may dffer. Be sure to nsert the seat post to the deepest nserton depth. Wth chldren who are stll growng t s ad vsable to check the seatng poston every two to three months. Never apply grease or ol nto a seat tube of a frame made of carbon, unless an alumnum sleeve s nsde the frame. If you mount a carbon seat post, do not put any grease on t, even f the frame s made of metal. Once greased carbon fbre components may never agan ensure relable clampng! Now you can adjust the saddle heght to the desred poston. Make sure the part of the seat post nsde the seat tube s always well greased. (Except: frames and seat posts made of carbon). Do not use brute force, f the seat post does not move easly nsde the seat tube. Contact, f necessary, our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Algn the saddle wth the frame usng the saddle nose and the bottom bracket or top tube as references. Clamp the seat post tght agan by turnng the seat post bnder bolt clockwse. You should not need much strength n your hands to clamp the seat post suffcently tght. Otherwse the seat post may be the wrong sze for the frame. If you are n doubt, please call our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Verfy that the seat clamp s suffcently tght by takng hold of the saddle at both ends and tryng to turn the seat post nsde the seat tube. If t does not move, the seat post s frmly seated. Does the leg stretch test now produce the rght result? Check by movng your foot and pedal to the lowest pont. If the ball of your bg toe s exactly above the pedal centre (deal pedallng poston) your knee should be slghtly bent. If ths s the case, the saddle heght s adjusted to the correct heght. Check whether you can balance safely on your bke whle sttng on the saddle by stretchng your feet to the floor. If not, you should lower the saddle a lttle. Tghten carefully by approachng the prescrbed maxmum torque n small steps (0.5 Nm ncrements) whlst constantly checkng the proper ft of the component. Never exceed the maxmum tghtenng torque ndcated by the manufacturer! Check algnment of saddle along top tube to make sure t s not twsted Try twstng the saddle relatve to the frame Do not overtghten the bnder bolt of the seat post clamp. Otherwse the seat post or the frame can be damaged. Rsk of an accdent! Never rde your bcycle wth the seat post drawn out beyond the lmt, maxmum, or stop mark! The seat post mght break or cause severe damage to the frame. If your bcycle has a long seat tube contnung beyond the top tube, the seat post should at least reach below the level of the top tube and the tp of the rear stays!
29 54 ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER HANDLEBAR HEIGHT HANDLEBAR HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER 55 ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE HANDLEBARS The heght of the handlebars determnes the nclnaton of the upper body. The deeper the handlebars, the more nclned the upper body. Ths means a more streamlned poston for the rder and more weght to bear on the front wheel, but the extremely nclned poston proves less comfortable, as the stran on wrsts, arms, upper body and neck wll ncrease. The heght of the handlebars determnes the nclnaton of the upper body The rdng behavour of tme tral machnes needs gettng used to AHEADSET -STEMS OR THREADLESS SYSTEM (Aheadset s a regstered trademark of the Da-Compe company) On bkes wth an Aheadset, the stem also serves to adjust the headset bearng pressure. If you change the poston of the stem, you have to readjust the bearngs (see chapter The headset ). The vertcal settng range s determned by the ntermedate rngs, also referred to as spacers. Wth flp-flop stem models t s also possble to mount the stem the other way round to alter the handlebar heght. Release the bolt at the top of the fork steerer tube whch serves to adjust the ntal bearng pressure and remove the Ahead cap. Release the bolts on the sde or at the rear of the stem and pull the stem off the fork. Now you can remove the spacers. Apply a ltte Canyon carbon assembly paste n the stem clampng area. Remount the stem entrely on the fork steerer tube and slp the spacers you have removed above the stem. Release the bolts on the sde of the stem Remove the spacers under the stem and place them above the stem Stems come n very dfferent lengths and shaft and bnder tube dameters. A stem of napproprate dmensons can become a source of danger: Handlebars and stem may break, causng an accdent n the process. When replacng any parts be sure to only use parts that bear the approprate mark and, to be on the safe sde, orgnal spare parts. Track bkes are purstc and uncompromsng sports equpment Make sure the handlebar-stem-combnaton s approved by the handlebar and/or stem manufacturer. When removng the spacers you wll have to shorten the steerer tube. Ths adjustment s rreversble. For ths reason, a shortenng should not be carred out untl you are absolutely sure about the seatng poston. Have ths job carred out by an experenced mechanc. Wrong handlng or usng a wrong tool when shortenng the steerer tube leads to rreparable materal damage whch may be dangerous under certan crcumstances. Canyon does not assume any lablty for damage to the steerer tube caused by napproprate handlng. Ths shall render the warranty null and vod. We recommend that you contact our Canyon workshop through our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Also observe the enclosed operatng nstructons of the component manufacturers. Apply some carbon assembly paste on the steerer tube The stem s one of the load bearng parts of your bke and changes to t can mpar your safety. Note that the bolted connectons of the stem and the handlebars have to be tghtened to specfed torques. For the prescrbed values, see chapter Recommended tghtenng torques. If you ntend to make any changes, contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0)
30 56 ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER HANDLEBAR HEIGHT HANDLEBAR HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER 57 If you want to turn around the stem, you have to addtonally remove the handlebars. To do so release the bolts of the stem front plate clampng the handlebars and remove them carefully. Apply a lttle Canyon carbon assembly paste n ths clampng area and retghten the handlebars after havng turned around the stem. Centre the handlebars accurately n the stem clamp. Retghten all bolts of the stem clamp wth a torque wrench by observng the correct tghtenng torques. Please note that when usng carbon assembly paste you normally need not use the maxmum tghtenng torque. It wll do already to tghten the bolts wth tghtenng torques that are 20 to 25 % below the maxmum tghtenng torques,.e. 6 Nm nstead of 8 Nm. That wll prevent the materal from damage. Readjust the bearng. Realgn the stem by makng sure t s n algnment wth the front wheel and at rght angle relatve to the handlebars and the drecton of moton. After realgnment of the stem retghten t and check whether the handlebars resst twstng and turnng (see chapter The headset ). Readjust the bearng Retghten the stem to the prescrbed torque I-LOCK SYSTEM In the case of bkes wth I-Lock system the headset s also fxed by the stem. If you modfy the stem poston, you have to readjust the headset (see chapter The headset, as well). Some models are ftted wth a transton plate. Ths part s desgned to keep the set bearng play even wth the stem or cockpt dsmounted. Ths transton plate as well as the fork steerer clampng must be released to re-adjust the headset. The transton plate therefore only s an assembly ad. Observe the ndcated torque value. Changng the heght of the handlebars can only be acheved by removng the spacers from beneath the stem and by slppng them on top of t or, wth so-called flp-flop models, by turnng the stem around. Release the bolts at the sde of the stem by two to three turns. Turn back the bolts of the headset adjustng devce,.e. antclockwse. Remove the cap at the stem top. Keep hold of the fork and slp the stem off the steerer tube. Now you can remove the spacers. Apply a ltte Canyon carbon assembly paste n the stem clampng area. Remount the stem entrely on the fork steerer tube and slp the spacers you have removed above the stem. Ths s a rough-and-ready adjustment! to check the handlebar poston, as the spacers mght rattle durng rdng. When you are sure you have found the adequate handlebar heght, have the steerer tube shortened by a sklled mechanc. Release the bolts on the sde of the stem Slghtly tghten the transton plate bolt Verfy that the handlebar clampng area s free of sharp edges. If you ntend to make any changes, contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) If you have a Canyon road bke wth a carbon steerer tube (whch you can tell by the black or black shnng colour n the stem slt), you have to be extremely careful when tghtenng the stem. Ths s a job for experts only! Note that the bolted connectons of stem and handlebars have to be tghtened to the specfed tghtenng torques. You wll fnd the prescrbed values n chapter Recommended tghtenng torques or n the enclosed manuals of the component manufacturers.

31 58 ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER HANDLEBAR HEIGHT FORE-TO-AFT POSITION AND SADDLE ADJUSTMENT TO THE RIDER 59 If you want to turn around the stem, you have to addtonally remove the handlebars. To do so release the bolts of the stem front plate clampng the handlebars and remove them carefully. Apply some carbon assembly paste n ths clampng area, as well, and re-mount the handlebar after havng turned around the stem. Slde the cap on top of the steerer tube, keep hold of the fork and press stem and cap downwards to elmnate any play. Realgn the stem by makng sure t s n algnment wth the front wheel and at rght angle relatve to the handlebars and the drecton of moton. Contnue by algnng the handlebars n the stem clamp,.e. the drops should be n horzontal poston or, at the most, slant slghtly downwards towards the rear. Retghten all bolts of the stem clamp wth a torque wrench by observng the correct tghtenng torques. Please note that when usng carbon assembly paste you normally need not use the maxmum tghtenng torque. It wll do already to tghten the bolts wth tghtenng torques that are 20 to 25 % below the maxmum tghtenng torques,.e. 6 Nm nstead of 8 Nm. That wll prevent the materal from damage. Adjust the bearng play and make a strength test, as descrbed further below. Slp off the spacers Apply some carbon assembly paste on the steerer tube FORE-TO-AFT-POSITION AND SADDLE TILT The nclnaton of your upper body and hence your rdng comfort and pedallng power are also nfluenced by the dstance between the grps of the handlebars and the saddle as well as by the saddle tlt. Ths dstance can be altered slghtly by changng the poston of the saddle rals on the seat post. However, ths also nfluences your pedallng. Dependng on whether the saddle s postoned more to the front or more rearwards, your legs wll reach the pedals to a greater or lesser extent from behnd. You need to have the saddle horzontal n order to pedal n a relaxed manner. If t s tlted, you wll constantly have to lean aganst the handlebars to prevent yourself from slppng off the saddle. In the case of the VCLS 2.0 seat post t s best to have the saddle set slghtly nclned downwards at the front. For that reason you should start wth ths poston. The nclnaton of your upper body s nfluenced by the dstance between the grps of the handlebars and the saddle Do avod a rearward tlt of the saddle Remount the cap and press t downwards to the fork you keep hold of and retghten the algned stem to the prescrbed tghtenng torque Never clamp the saddle n the curved sectons of the saddle ral, but always n the straght area. Note that the bolted connectons of stem and handlebars have to be tghtened to the specfed torques. You wll fnd the prescrbed values on the components themselves or n the enclosed manuals of the component manufacturers. If you dsregard the prescrbed values, the handlebars or stem may come loose or break. Ths can lead to a severe crash. Retghten all bolts of the stem clamp wth a torque wrench by observng the correct tghtenng torques Note that the bolted connectons of the seat post have to be tghtened to the specfed tghtenng torques.

35 66 PEDAL SYSTEMS PEDAL SYSTEMS 67 THE PEDAL SYSTEMS Not all shoes are suted for cyclng. Shoes used for cyclng should have a stff sole and provde a frm support for your feet. If the soles are too soft, the pedals can press through and cause foot pan. The sole should be not too broad near the heels, as the rear stays wll otherwse get n the way of your pedallng. Ths wll prevent your feet from assumng a natural poston and may cause knee pan n the long run. DIFFERENT SYSTEMS AT A GLANCE HOW THEY WORK It s recommended usng pedals whch provde a lock and release mechansm for your shoe, known as clpless or step-n pedals. The frm connecton between shoe and pedal prevents your feet from slppng off when pedallng fast or when rdng over rough ground. Besdes ths, t enables you not only to push but also to pull the pedals, whch makes your pedallng more fluent. A further advantage s that the ball of your bg toe comes to rest just at the rght place on the pedal spndle and that you do not block nadvertently the front wheel wth the tps of your feet durng steerng. Step-n pedal Shoes for step-n pedals Clpless of step-n pedals come wth a specal type of cyclng shoe whch locks onto the pedal smlarly to a sk bndng. To engage wth the pedal s to turn t to the horzontal usng the tp of the cleat (the plate on the sole of the shoe) and then rest your foot on t. Most pedals are equpped wth a double-sded lock-n mechansm, so that you can step on the pedal wth ether face up. The shoe engages wth the pedal wth a clck whch you wll hear and feel clearly. Wth all commercally avalable systems the shoe s dsengaged from the pedal by twstng the heel outward. Lean aganst a wall or ask someone to hold you when you try to engage and dsengage the shoe from the pedal. Functonal dfferences between the pedal systems concern the shape of the cleat, the release angle and the rgdty of the connecton. Cyclsts predsposed to knee trouble should choose a pedal system that has some float, so that the heel can move sdeways a lttle whle the shoe s engaged wth the pedal. Some clpless pedals have cleats embedded nto the sole whch s a great advantage, as t ensures stable walkng. The clpless pedal dsengages by an outward twstng of the heel Cleats are recessed n cyclng shoe soles Especally n the case of small frame szes there s the rsk that the foot colldes wth the front wheel. Therefore, be sure to use step-n pedals, f possble. In addton, make sure the cleats are accurately adjusted. For clpless or step-n pedals you always need specal cyclng shoes. Read the operatng nstructons of the pedal manufacturers or call our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Takng up the pedals, engagng the shoes and dsengagng them by turnng the heel outward should frst be practsed n standng. Later you can refne your technque n a place clear of traffc. Read the operatng nstructons of the pedal and shoe manufacturers carefully. If you have any questons, call our servce hotlne at +44 (0)
36 68 PEDAL SYSTEMS BRAKE SYSTEM 69 ADJUSTMENT AND MAINTENANCE Current pedal systems can show consderable dfferences n desgn. Nevertheless, there are some general rules for adjustment whch apply to all of them: The cleat has to be fastened to the shoe n such a poston that the ball of the foot comes to rest on the pedal spndle. Your feet should assume a natural poston when pedallng. For most people ths means that the heels wll pont nward a lttle. Make sure the fastenng bolts are properly tghtened, as you wll fnd t almost mpossble to dsengage your shoe from a loose plate! Rsk of an accdent! Adjust the requred releasng force accordng to your needs. It s advsable to adopt a low releasng force settng to begn wth. Turn the small Allen bolt and examne the change n releasng force when you engage and dsengage the shoe from the pedal. Exposed sprngs and other components that attract drt have to be cleaned and regreased regularly. Squeakng or creakng cleats can often be slenced by applyng a lttle grease to the pont of contact between cleat and pedal. Regularly check the cleats for wear. If your shoe wobbles on the pedal, the cleat or the sole of your shoes mght be worn. Your feet should assume a natural poston when pedallng Adjustng the releasng force of the pedal THE BRAKE SYSTEM In general the brakes of your Canyon are necessary to adjust your speed to the traffc stuaton. However, n an emergency the brakes must be able to brng your Canyon to a halt as quckly as possble. Such emergency stops are also a study n physcs. In the process of brakng, the rder s weght shfts forward, thus reducng the load on the rear wheel. The rate of deceleraton on a dry and grppy ground s prmarly lmted by the danger of overturnng and only n the second place by the road grp of the tyres. Ths problem becomes partcularly acute when rdng downhll. In the event of an emergency stop you have to try to put your weght back as far as possble. Actuate both brakes smultaneously and bear n mnd that, due to the weght transfer, the front brakes can generate a far better brakng effect on a surface wth good grp. The assgnment of brake lever to brake pad, e.g. left lever acts on front brake, can vary. Have the brakes changed, as you want them. Wth rm brakes long lastng brakng or permanent draggng of the brake pads can overheat the rm. Ths can affect the nner tube negatvely or cause the tyre to slp on the nner rm. Sudden loss of pressure whle cyclng can result n a serous accdent. Brake lever Brake callper Make sure pedals and shoe soles are always clear of mud and other mpurtes and grease the lock-n mechansm wth lubrcant at regular ntervals. Only use clpless pedals that allow you to engage and dsengage smoothly. A defectve pedal or a badly worn cleat can lead to an accdent by causng the shoe to come off by tself or makng t harder to release. Wth dsc brakes prolonged brakng or permanent draggng of brake pads can overheat the brake system. Ths can result n a loss of brakng power, even to the pont of total brake falure, provokng serous accdents. Therefore, check your rdng manners and make t a habt to brake hard and then to open the brake agan, whenever the road surface and the stuaton allows t. It s better to stop for a moment and let the rm cool down rather than to rsk anythng. Brakng leads to a forward shftng of the rder s weght Be careful whle gettng used to the brakes. Practse emergency stops n a place clear of traffc untl you have perfect command of your Canyon. Ths can save you from havng accdents. Wet weather reduces your brakng power.!

37 70 BRAKE SYSTEM RIM BRAKES RIM BRAKES BRAKE SYSTEM 71 ROAD BIKE RIM BRAKES Checkng and readjustng road bke brakes Brakes how they work and what to do about wear Actuatng the hand lever on the handlebar causes a statonary brake pad to be pressed aganst a rotatng brakng surface, and the resultng frcton slows down the wheel. The rate of deceleraton s not only determned by the force wth whch the brake pad s pressed aganst the brakng surface, but also to a decsve degree by the coeffcent of frcton, whch depends on the two materals that are rubbed aganst each other. When water, drt or ol gets n contact wth one of the engagng surfaces, ths changes the coeffcent of frcton. Ths s why brakes respond at a slght delay and less powerfully n wet weather. The frcton generated by brakng causes wear to the brake pads as well as to the rms! Frequent rdes n the ran hasten wear on both engagng surfaces. Rms are provded wth wear ndcators,.e. grooves or crcular ndentatons. If the rm s worn down to the pont where the grooves or ndentatons are no longer vsble, they need to be replaced. Once the abrason of the rm has reached a certan crtcal pont, the rm may break under the tyre pressure. Ths can make the wheel jam or the nner tube burst, both of whch can cause an accdent! We advse you to have the remanng thckness of the rms checked at the latest when you are through your second set of brake pads. Brake pads wth worn down wear ndcators,.e. grooves, (bottom brake pad) must be replaced Have your rms regularly nspected and measured Wth sde-pull brakes the brake arms are suspended from a common pont, thus formng an ntegral system. When actuatng the brake lever, both arms are tghtened by the cable, the pads touch the rm. Checkng the brake system Check whether the brake pads are accurately algned wth the rms and stll suffcently thck (see chapter The brake system ). Do both brake arms contact the rm smultaneously when actuatng the brake levers? Do you get a clear-cut brakng response when you pull the brake lever hard, and does the lever reman clear of the handlebars no matter how hard you pull? An accurate adjustment of the brake s acheved, when your brake system has passed on all of the above ponts. Vertcal adjustment of the brake pads Release the fastenng bolt of the brake pad by one to two complete turns at the most. Push the brake pad to the correct heght and algn t accordng to the rm before re-tghtenng the fastenng bolt to the specfed torque. The brake pad must ht the rm accurately To adjust the heght of the brake pads tghten the bolt to the prescrbed torque When replacng brake pads, be sure to only use marked orgnal brake pads matchng your rm. Carbon rms requre specal brake pads accordng to the nstructons of the wheel manufacturer When replacng any parts be sure to only use orgnal spare parts! Ensure that brakng surfaces are abso-! lutely free of wax, grease and ol. Ask a sklled mechanc to examne the rms at the latest when you are through your second set of brake pads. Worn down rms may make the nner tube burst, thus leadng to a crash! In order to mantan ther effectveness brakes need to be checked and readjusted from tme to tme. Damaged brake cables that are for example frayed should be replaced mmedately, as they can otherwse fal n a crtcal moment, possbly causng a crash. Manufacturers of brakes delver ther products wth detaled operatng nstructons. Be sure to read these operatng nstructons carefully before you dsmount a wheel or do any mantenance work. After the readjustment do a brake test n standng. Make sure the brake pads engage fully wth the rm when you pull them hard wthout touchng the tyre. Furthermore you should not be able to pull the brake levers all the way to the handlebars. Otherwse the brake mght fal or the tyre sustan damage, thus causng an accdent.

Furthermore, check whether the bolt connectng the brake to the frame s stll tghtened to the prescrbed torque, as specfed n chapter Recommended tghtenng torques. Turn the knurled nut through whch the brake cable passes at the brake body untl the travel of the brake lever suts your needs. To synchronse the brake, turn the lttle bolt on the sde of the brake arm or the other bolt n the top area on the other sde. Screw ths small bolt untl the clearance between brake pad and rm s the same on ether sde Brakes how they work and what to do about wear Actuatng the hand lever on the handlebar causes a statonary brake pad to be pressed aganst a rotatng brakng surface, and the resultng frcton slows down the wheel. The rate of deceleraton s not only determned by the force wth whch the brake pad s pressed aganst the brakng surface, but also to a decsve degree by the coeffcent of frcton, whch depends on the two materals that are rubbed aganst each other. In the wet, dsc brakes respond much faster than rm brakes. They also requre farly lttle mantenance and do not wear down the rms as rm brakes do. One drawback of dsc brakes s that they tend to be nosy when they are wet. Dsc brake Turn the knurled nut to adjust the necessary brake lever travel When water, drt or ol gets n contact wth one of the engagng surfaces, ths changes the coeffcent of frcton. Ths s why dsc brakes respond at a slght delay and less powerfully n wet weather. The frcton generated by brakng causes wear to the brake pads as well as to the rotors! Frequent rdes n the ran hasten wear on both engagng surfaces. Dsc brake Damaged brake cables that are for example frayed should be replaced mmedately, as they can otherwse fal n a crtcal moment, possbly causng a crash. Adjustng the poston of the brake pads relatve to the rms requres a consderable degree of skll. Replacng and adjustng the brake pads s a job best left to your bcycle dealer. Make sure that the rotors and brake pads! reman absolutely free of wax, grease and lubrcant. Brake pads, once contamnated wth ol cannot be cleaned, but have to be replaced! Wet condtons and/or a heavly clogged brake can lead to squeakng noses durng brakng. When replacng brake pads, be sure to only use marked orgnal spare parts matchng your brake. Leakages n the lnes of hydraulc brakes may render them neffectve. Remove such leakages mmedately, otherwse rsk of accdent! Damaged cables should be replaced mmedately, as otherwse they can tear.

In most cases ths s done by means of a small Allen bolt located drectly at the hand lever. After adjustng check the functonng and make sure the brake pads do not drag when releasng the brake lever and spnnng the wheel. Checkng and readjustng n the case of mechancal dsc brakes Regularly check the brakng response and the condton of the brake cables whle pullng on the lever. Do you get a clear-cut brakng response when you pull the brake lever hard, and does the lever reman clear of the handlebars no matter how hard you pull? To a certan extent, an ncreasng lever travel due to the wear on the brake pads can be compensated drectly at the brake calper. Unscrew the unon nut on the bolt through whch the cable enters the brake calper and then unscrew the bolt untl the lever has the desred travel. Retghten the lock nut by takng care that the slt of the bolt head does not face upward or forward, as ths would permt an unnecessarly hgh amount of water or drt to enter. Check at regular ntervals, whether the brake pads are stll suffcently thck. The wear on the pads can be checked by means of the thckness of the brakng materal attached to the backng plate wthn the brake calper or by vewng through the wndow on the upper sde of the calper. If there s approxmately 1mm of materal left on each brake pad, remove the pads accordng to the manufacturer s operatng nstructons, check them thoroughly and replace them, f necessary. Brake lever reach Brake lever flat bar In any case, be sure to read the orgnal nstructons of the brake manufacturer before adjustng the brakes. Repeated readjustment at the brake lever or brake calper only can drastcally reduce the maxmum brakng performance. Damaged brake cables that are for example frayed should be replaced mmedately, as they can otherwse fal n a crtcal moment, possbly causng a crash. New brake pads have to be bedded n before they reach ther optmal brakng performance. Accelerate your Canyon 30 to 50 tmes to around 30 km/h (18 mph) and brng t to a halt each tme. Some systems must be readjusted drectly! at the brake calper to compensate wear. For more nformaton please read the brake manufacturer s operatng nstructons. After readjustng check the functonng and make sure the brake pads do not drag when releasng the brake lever and spnnng the wheel. Repeated readjustment at the brake lever makes the arm on the brake calper change ts poston. Ths can reduce brakng power and result n a complete brake falure n an extreme case. Rsk of an accdent! Some models offer further ways of adjustng the brakes drectly at the brake calper, though ths requres a certan amount of skll. Checkng and readjustng n the case of hydraulc dsc brakes Regularly check the lnes and connectons for leaks whle pullng on the lever. If hydraulc ol or brake flud leaks out, you should take approprate measures mmedately, as a leak can render your brakes neffectve. Contact, f necessary, our servce hotlne at +44 (0) A leak n the brake lnes can render the brake neffectve. Rsk of an accdent! Most of the brake models are equpped wth a mechansm whch automatcally compensates for the wear. Before every rde, check whether you get a clear-cut brakng response before the lever touches the handlebars. Check at regular ntervals, whether the brake pads are stll suffcently thck. The wear of the pads can be checked by means of the thckness of the brakng materal attached to the backng plate wthn the brake calper or by vewng through the wndow on the upper sde of the calper. If there s approxmately 1mm of materal left on each brake pad, remove the pads accordng to the manufacturer s operatng nstructons, check them thoroughly and replace them, f necessary. Wear control of the brake pads If your brake system works wth DOT brake flud, the latter needs to be replaced regularly accordng to the ntervals prescrbed by the manufacturer. Do not open the brake lnes. Brake flud! that can be very unhealthy and damagng to the pant could leak out. Loose connectons and leaky brake lnes drastcally mpar brakng power.

40 76 BRAKE SYSTEM DISC BRAKES GEARS 77 The brake models of some manufacturers nclude transport locks wth cut-outs. The brake pads of these brakes must be replaced as soon as they ft nto these cut-outs. Only use orgnal replacement pads and follow the operatng nstructons of the brake manufacturers. If you have the slghtest doubt, leave ths job to a sklled mechanc. Brake pads THE GEARS The gears on your Canyon serve to adjust your pedallng power to the slope of the road, wnd condtons, and the desred speed. The gears do not reduce the physcal work to be performed whch remans the same wth the dentcal dstance to be performed at dentcal speed, but the pedallng force per crank rotaton. In other words: A low gear allows you to clmb steep hlls wth moderate pedallng force. You have to pedal, however, relatvely fast. Deralleur gears Downhll you swtch to a hgh gear. Every turn of the pedals takes you many metres forward at correspondngly hgh speed. To rde economcally you frequently have to swtch gears. As wth a motor vehcle, your engne wants to be kept wthn a certan speed range, f t s to gve ts best performance. New brake pads have to be bedded n before they reach ther optmal brakng performance. Accelerate your Canyon 30 to 50 tmes to around 30 km/h (18 mph) and brng t to a halt each tme. Also observe the nformaton gven on the webste of your brake manufacturer. Wth the wheels dsmounted, do not actuate the brake levers. Ths would cause the brake pads to be pushed together, makng t dffcult to remount the wheel. Mount the enclosed transport locks after dsmountng the wheels. Do not transport your Canyon wth saddle and handlebars upsde down rsk of brake falure. In any case, be sure to read the orgnal nstructons of the brake manufacturer before adjustng the brakes. On level ground your pedallng speed, also referred to as cadence, should be hgher than 60 strokes a mnute. Racng cyclsts pedal at a rate between 90 and 110 strokes a mnute on level ground. When clmbng uphll, your cadence wll naturally fall off somewhat. Your pedallng should always reman fluent however. Fnely graduated adjustments as well as an easy operablty of modern bke gears are the best precondtons for an effcent rdng. In addton, t reduces chan and sprocket wear as well as the stran on your knee jonts. Deralleur gears are the most effectve type of transmsson on bkes. About 97 to 98 percent of the pedallng force performed s transmtted to the rear wheel wth well-mantaned and greased deralleur gears. The control of the gear system as well as the brakng performance leave nothng to be desred. Wth specally desgned sprocket teeth, flexble chans and clearcut lever postons, shftng gears has become very easy. Rear deralleur Front deralleur Always wear straght-cut trousers or use! trouser clps or the lke to make sure your trousers do not get caught n the chan or chanrngs, throwng you off your bke.
41 78 GEARS HOW THEY WORK AND HOW TO USE THEM HOW THEY WORK AND HOW TO USE THEM GEARS 79 THE GEARS - HOW THEY WORK AND HOW TO USE THEM Wth road bkes the shft levers are ntegrated n the brake lever. On a Campagnolo equpped bke movng the small shft lever located behnd the brake lever nward by means of your ndex or mddle fnger shfts the chan towards the larger sprockets. Pressng wth your thumb on the shfter located on the nward facng sde of the brake lever mount, moves the chan towards the next smaller sprocket. Wth Shmano levers swvellng the entre brake lever nward shfts the chan towards the larger sprockets. Pressng only the small lever nward makes the chan move towards the smaller sprockets. Campagnolo shft/brake lever The shftng of a gear lever s communcated to the rear deralleur va bowden cable. Then the rear deralleur swvels, causng the chan to clmb onto the next sprocket. It s therefore mportant when changng gears to contnue pedallng smoothly wthout force as long as the chan s movng between sprockets or chanrngs! There are, however, specal gudes n the chanrngs whch allow for changng gears under force. Changng gears under load shortens, however, the servce lfe of your chan consderably. Therefore, avod changng gears whle pedallng wth force, n partcular when changng gears wth the front deralleur. Unfavourable run of the chan chan on the smallest chanrng and the outmost sprocket Wth SRAM Force doubletap levers there s only one shftng lever postoned behnd the brake lever. A short tap to the nward moves the chan to a smaller sprocket. Sweepng the shftng lever more n means the deralleur shfts the chan to larger sprockets. One tap can shft up to three gears. Wth Shmano, SRAM and Campagnolo bar end shfters for trathlon and tme tral use the shftng lever s pressed downward to move the chan to the smaller sprockets to acheve a hgher gear and to the smaller chanrngs to acheve a lower gear. By pullng the shftng lever upward you can swtch to the larger sprockets and larger chanrngs. In the case of flat bars the control levers of the shfters are postoned under the handlebars. The bg lever on the rght s thumb-operated. The chan moves on larger sprockets,.e. to lower gears. The smaller lever s ether ndex fnger or thumb-operated and shfts nto the other drecton. On the left sde the bg thumb-operated lever shfts to the large chanrng,.e. to a hgher gear rato. Shmano shft/brake lever SRAM shft/brake lever Bar end shft lever Shfter flat bar Canyon road bkes can have up to 22 speeds. Deralleur gears have one or two chanwheels at the front crank and eleven sprockets at the rear wheel hub. Some gears wth partcular chan run should be avoded. Gears wth an extremely oblque run of the chan enhance a hgher nner frcton, whch reduces the power transmsson effcency and hastens wear of the chan. An unfavourable run of the chan s when the smallest chanrng (front deralleur) s used wth one of the two or three outermost (smallest) sprockets (rear deralleur) or when the largest chanrng s used wth one of the nmost (largest) sprockets. Keep on pedallng wthout force whle you shft. Ths wll lead to a smooth and quet gear change and reduce the wear. If your road racng bcycle s ftted wth an electronc shftng system D2 from Shmano, also read chapter Shmano D2. Unfavourable run of the chan chan on the bggest chanrng and the nmost sprocket Practse changng gears n a place free of traffc untl you are famlar wth the functonng of the dfferent levers or twst grps. If you do so n road traffc, your attenton mght be drawn off from possble rsks. Avod gears whch nvolve an extremely oblque run of the chan. Do not shft under load, as ths wll shorten the durablty of the chan consderably. Furthermore, ths can lead to a chan-suck,.e. the chan can get jammed between chanstay and chanrngs. Avod shftng gears whle pedallng wth force, n partcular when shftng wth the front deralleur.
42 80 GEARS CHECKING AND READJUSTING CHECKING AND READJUSTING GEARS 81 CHECKING AND READJUSTING THE GEARS ADJUSTMENT OF LIMIT STOPS The deralleur gears were thoroughly adjusted by the Canyon team before delvery of your Canyon. The bowden cables may, however, gve way on the frst klometres makng gear changng mprecse. Ths wll result n the chan not wantng to clmb onto the next larger sprocket. The rear deralleur s equpped wth lmt screws whch lmt the swvel range of the rear deralleur, thus preventng the rear deralleur and chan from colldng wth the spokes or the chan from droppng off the smallest sprocket. The lmt screws do not change ther poston durng normal use. REAR DERAILLEUR Wth road bkes the adjustment s carred out by turnng the adjustng bolts at the rght cable stop on the down tube. There s another adjustng bolt drectly at the rear deralleur. Increase the tenson of the bowden cable by turnng the adjustng bolt through whch t passes at the entry to the shft lever or rear deralleur. After tensonng the bowden cable check whether the chan readly clmbs onto the next larger sprocket. To do ths you ether have to turn by hand the cranks or rde your Canyon. If the chan readly clmbs onto the next larger sprocket, check whether t also readly shfts to the small sprockets when you change to a hgher gear. You may need several tres to get the deralleur system properly adjusted. Road bkes have non-adjustable shft levers and nstead are provded wth stepwse adjustable lmt stops on the down tube. Just release the bolts n half-turn steps. Adjustng the front and rear deralleur accurately s a job for an experenced mechanc. Retghtenng of the bowden cable at the adjustng bolt of the rear deralleur Look from the rear at the rear gear cluster and check whether the pulleys are perfectly algned wth the teeth of the adequate sprocket If you want to try adjustng t yourself, be sure to read the operatng nstructons of the manufacturer. In case you face any problem wth the gears, please contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Ask a helper to lft the rear wheel. By turnng the cranks and shftng through you can easly check the functon. If your Canyon topples over, the rear deralleur or ts attachment mght get bent. You should therefore check the swvel range after any ncdent or when mountng other wheels onto your Canyon. Shft the gear lever to the hghest gear (smallest sprocket). The nner cable s then totally relaxed and the chan wll automatcally run on the smallest sprocket. Look from the rear at the rear gear cluster and check, whether the pulleys are perfectly algned wth the teeth of ths sprocket. If ths s not the case, you have to adjust the poston by means of the lmt screw. The lmt screws on rear deralleurs are often marked H for hgh gear and L for low gear. In ths case hgh gear stands for hgh transmsson rato,.e. wth the chan runnng on the smallest sprocket. If the screws are not marked, you wll have to fnd out by tral and error. Turn one of the screws countng the number of turns and watch the rear deralleur. If t does not move, turn the bolt back to ts orgnal poston. Turn the screw clockwse to shft the rear deralleur towards the wheel and antclockwse to shft t away from the wheel. Change gears to the bggest sprocket. Be careful as you do so, as not to let the rear deralleur collde wth the spokes. When the chan runs on the bggest sprocket, see whether you can take the rear deralleur even further by movng the shft lever to the end of ts travel. Then press the rear deralleur further towards the spokes by hand. Spn the wheel. Reduce the swvel range of the rear deralleur wth the lmt screws Check whether the rear deralleur remans clear of the spokes Lmt screws Improperly adjusted lmt stops or a bent rear deralleur mount can result n a severe damage to the bcycle and a rear wheel blockng.

43 82 GEARS CHECKING AND READJUSTING CHECKING AND READJUSTING GEARS 83 If the pulley cage touches the spokes or f the chan begns to move beyond the largest sprocket, you should reduce the swvel range. Turn the screw marked L, untl you are absolutely sure the rear deralleur does not collde wth the spokes. Check the poston of the pulley cage towards the sprocket. The gap between pulley and the largest sprocket should leave a clearance of one to two lnks at least. The rear deralleur s equpped wth a bolt located at the drop-out front whch serves the purpose of adjustng ths clearance. Screw n ths bolt untl the clearance s as desred. Turn the cranks backwards for checkng purposes. The pulley should not touch the sprocket durng ths movement, as well. In case the clearance stll does not suffce, changng gears beng thus mpeded, you have to shorten the chan by one lnk. Ths means an ncreased tenson on the rear deralleur. It must, however, be ensured that the chan can run on the largest chanrng as well as on the largest sprocket. Due to the extremely oblque run of the chan, ths gear should however be avoded. To adjust the clearance between pulley cage and sprocket, turn the bolt located at the front sde of the drop-out FRONT DERAILLEUR Adjustng the front deralleur requres a great deal of experence. The range wthn whch the front deralleur keeps the chan on the chanrng wthout tself touchng the chan s very small. It s often better to let the chan drag slghtly on the deralleur than to rsk havng the chan fall off the chanrng, whch would nterrupt the power tran of your Canyon. As wth the rear deralleur, the cable of the front deralleur s subject to lengthenng and hence to reduced precson n gear changng. Increase the tenson of the cable by turnng the adjustng bolt at the down tube of the frame. Ths works manly, as descrbed n secton Checkng and readjustng the gears. Reduce the swvel range of the front deralleur wth the lmt screws. Retghtenng of the bowden cable at the adjustng bolt on the frame Adjustng the swvel range of the front deralleur Adjustng the front deralleur s a delcate job. Improper adjustment can cause the chan to jump off, thus nterruptng the power tran. Rsk of an accdent! Adjustng the front deralleur s a job for professonals. If the bcycle toppled over or the rear deralleur was ht by an mpact there s the rsk that the rear deralleur or the deralleur hanger s bent and consequently reachng nto the spokes. Check the poston of the deralleur hanger after such ncdents. If another rear wheel was mounted, you should also check the swvel range and readjust the lmt screws, f necessary. Ask a helper to lft the rear wheel. By turn ng the cranks and shftng through you can easly check the functon. Be sure to go on a test rde n a place free of traffc, after adjustng the gears of your bcycle. The ntal adjustment of the front and rear! deralleur s a job for an experenced mechanc. Maldadjustments may cause severe mechancal damage. For more nformaton be sure to read the operatng nstructons of the gear manufacturer. In case you face any problem wth the gears, please contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) After havng adjusted the gears and chan! t s essental to take your Canyon for a test rde n a level, unfrequented area (e.g. n a parkng lot)! If the adjustments turn out to be mproper when rdng n road traffc, you may lose control over your Canyon.

44 84 GEARS CHECKING AND READJUSTING CHECKING AND READJUSTING GEARS 85 SHIMANO D2 BATTERY The D2 s the electronc verson of the hgh qualty shftng groupsets made by Shmano. Instead of va cables the sgnal s transmtted by wres. The rear and the front deralleurs are moved by small electrcal motors. Wth an oblque runnng chan the D2 front deralleur s even readjusted automatcally to avod grndng noses and unnecessary wear. The power supply s provded by a rechargeable battery that s mounted to the frame. CONTROL D2 front deralleur A new, fully charged battery allows you to rde approx. 1,000 km (620 mles). An about 25 % charged battery stll runs approx. 250 km (150 mles). Wth a weak battery the front deralleur s the frst component to stop workng, followed by the rear deralleur. In ths condton you can stll rde some more klometres and shft wth the rear deralleur. The battery should, however, be recharged as soon as possble. When the battery s empty the rear deralleur remans n the prevously chosen gear. Shftng nto another gear s mpossble from that moment on! D2 battery Wth the D2 you no longer have to move nwards the entre brake lever or the lever of the conventonal Dual Control shft lever from Shmano, but only to gently push control buttons. Shftng wth the oblong control button on the sde of the brake lever shfts to the larger chanrngs/sprockets. Pushng the trangular control button that s located behnd the brake lever makes the chan move to the smaller chanrngs/ sprockets. There s the opton to have the control button functon changed by your bcycle dealer f desred. The only thng necessary to do so s a specal test devce from Shmano that s also used for troubleshootng. Rear deralleur Before usng your new D2-shftng system, be sure to do a test rde n an area free of traffc. You can check the battery s state of charge at any tme. Push one of the control buttons and hold t 0.5 seconds at least. The LED on the control unt ndcates the state of charge: - green lght s one for about 2 seconds: battery s state of charge 100 % - green lght blnks 5 tmes: battery s state of charge about 50 % - red lght s one for about 2 seconds: battery s state of charge about 25 % - red lght blnks 5 tmes: battery s state of charge empty Over tme, the capacty of the battery wll degrade and so wll the dstance you wll be able to rde. Ths process s nevtable. When the achevable dstance you wll be able to rde no longer meets your requrements, you must replace the battery. The D2 battery may be mounted nvsbly n the down tube Informaton about the gear systems SRAM RED e-tap and Campagnolo EPS s provded on the webstes of the manufacturers and/or n the enclosed manuals of the component manufacturers. Recharge the battery only wth the charger delvered together wth the battery! Keep a nearly charged battery (50 % or more) that s not used for a longer perod of tme n a dry, cool place and out of the reach of chldren. After sx month at the latest you should check the state of charge. Mount the protectve cover on the battery s contact area pror to storage. Be sure to read the enclosed operatng nstructons of the gear manufacturer. Rechargng the (empty) battery wll take about 1.5 hours.
45 86 GEARS CHAIN CHAIN GEARS 87 CHAIN MAINTENANCE CHAIN WEAR It stll holds true that proper lubrcaton makes for enjoyable rdng. What counts s, however, not the quantty, but the dstrbuton and regular applcaton of lubrcant. Clean your chan from drt and lubrcant wth an oly rag from tme to tme. There s no need to use specal degreasers. Havng cleaned the chan as thoroughly as possble, apply chan ol, wax or grease to the chan lnks. To lubrcate the chan, drp the lubrcant onto the rollers whle you turn the crank. Ths done, pedal through several chan lengths and then let the chan rest for a few mnutes so that the lubrcant can dsperse. Fnally rub off excess lubrcant wth a rag so that t does not spatter around or attract drt durng rdng. Clean the chan from drt and ol wth a rag Although the chan s one of the wearng components of your Canyon, there are stll ways of nfluencng ts servce lfe. Make sure the chan s lubrcated regularly, especally after rdng n the ran. Try to only use gears whch allow a more or less straght run of the chan. Get n the habt of pedallng at a hgh cadence (more than 60 to 70 strokes/mnute). Wth road bkes chans runnng on deralleur gears are worn out after about 1,200 to 4,000 km (740 to 2,480 mles). Heavly stretched chans mpar the operaton of deralleur gears. Cyclng wth a worn-out chan also accelerates the wear of the sprockets and chanrngs. Replacng these components s relatvely expensve compared wth the costs of a new chan. It s therefore advsable to check the condton of the chan at regular ntervals. Check condton of chan Clean the chan as thoroughly as possble and apply lubrcant For ths purpose run the chan on the large chanrng. Take the chan between your thumb and ndex fnger and try to lft t off the teeth. If you can lft t off clearly, t s serously lengthened and n need of replacement. Professonal wear measurement There are accurate measurng nstruments for precse chan nspecton. Replacng the chan should be left to an expert, as most of the modern chans are not equpped wth a master lnk. Instead they have a contnuous desgn and requre specal-purpose tools for mountng. If you need help, ask a dealer to select and mount a chan approprate to your gear system. For the sake of the envronment, only use bodegradable lubrcants. Bear n mnd that some of the lubrcant wll always end up on the ground, especally n wet condtons. Make sure the brakng surfaces of the rms and the brake pads reman clear of lubrcants, as the brakes wll fal otherwse! An mproperly rveted chan can break, possbly throwng you off your bke. Let your chan be replaced by an experenced mechanc.
46 88 GEARS CHAIN TYRES AND INNER TUBES WHEELS 89 ADJUSTING THE CHAIN TENSION OF SINGLE SPEED BICYCLES THE GEARS - HOW THEY WORK AND HOW TO USE THEM So-called snglespeed bcycles, such as the V-Drome, have only one gear and therefore have nether rear nor front deralleur. Furthermore, they have a fxed hub. In the case of these models the rear wheel sprocket s drectly connected to the rear wheel. Ths makes the pedals rotate wth every movement of the rear wheel and vce versa. These bcycles often do not have brakes. CHECKING AND READJUSTING The chan tenson of snglespeed bcycles has to be checked and retensoned, f necessary, approx. every 1,000 km (620 mles) or 50 hours of use. Turn the crank backwards and try to fnd the poston wth the strongest chan tenson. If n ths poston you can lft the chan mdways between chanrng and sprocket by more than 1 cm, you should retenson the chan. Release the rear wheel axle bolts or nuts wth an approprate tool. Adjust the chan tenson by pullng the rear wheel to the rear or by releasng/tghtenng the chan tensoner. Subsequently, you should be able to rotate the crank wthout resstance. Adjust the rear wheel n the centre of the rear dropouts by usng, f necessary, the chan adjuster as lmt stop. Tghten the rear wheel axle nuts wth a torque wrench. Snglespeed Please check, whether the usage of snglespeed bcycles wthout brakes s permtted on publc roads accordng to the Hghway Code! Chan adjusters only serve to tenson the chan and to pre-adjust the rear wheel. They do not fx the wheel n ts poston or avod ts slppng out. If the chan s serously lengthened, t must be replaced. THE WHEELS - TYRES, INNER TUBES AND AIR PRESSURE The wheels of your Canyon create the contact to the road or track you are rdng on. They are subject to consderable stress through the weght of rder and luggage as well as through bumpy road surfaces or ground. Although wheels are manufactured wth great care and delvered accurately trued, ths does not prevent the spokes and npples from losng a lttle tenson on the frst klometres. For ths reason t may be that the wheels must be trued up as early as after you have run them n over about 100 to 300 klometres (60 to 180 mles). Check the wheels regularly after you have run them n. It wll rarely be necessary to tghten the spokes. The wheel conssts of hub, spokes and rm. The tyre s mounted onto the rm so that t encases the nner tube. There s a rm tape runnng around the base of the rm to protect the senstve nner tube aganst the spoke npples and the edges of the rm base, whch are often sharp. If you want to replace a tyre, you need to consder the actual sze of the old tyre. It s marked on the sde of the tyre. There are two desgnatons, the more precse of whch uses mllmetres. The number sequence means that the tyre s 23 mm wde when fully nflated and that t has an nner dameter of 622 mllmetres. By choosng a bgger tyre you rsk that the tyre drags along the fork or the rear frame. Therefore, please mount a tyre of dentcal dmenson. Wheel Tyre sze Rm tape n the rm If you mount a new tyre wth another dmenson, t mght be possble that the clearance between the front of your shoe and the wheel wll be reduced. Ths may make your foot collde wth the front wheel whle rdng at low speed. Rsk of an accdent!
47 90 WHEELS TYRES AND INNER TUBES TYRES AND INNER TUBES WHEELS 91 Tyres have to be nflated to the correct ar pressure n order to work properly. Adequately nflated tyres are also more resstant to flats. An nsuffcently nflated nner tube can easly get pnched ( snake-btten ), when t goes over a sharp kerb. The ar pressure recommended by the manufacturer s gven on the sde of the tyre or on the type label. The lower of the two pressure specfcatons makes for better cushonng and s therefore best for cyclng on a rough surface. Rollng resstance decreases wth ncreasng pressure, but so does comfort. A hgh tyre pressure s therefore most sutable for rdng on tarred roads. Inflaton pressure s often gven n the old system of unts,.e. n ps (pounds per square nch). The table gves the most common pressure values n terms of three systems. Race or Sclaverand valve Please note that the valves have dfferent dameters. Only use nner tubes wth valves matchng the rm. Usng a wrong valve may cause a sudden loss of ar pressure and hence throw you off your bke. Wth ths valve type t may happen that the valve body s not screwed n properly and that ar leaks out slowly. Check the seat of the valve body n ts stem. Hand pumps are often unsutable for nflatng tyres to hgh pressure. A better choce s a stand pump equpped wth a manometer whch enables you to check the pressure at home. There are adapters for all types of valves whch allow you to nflate a Sclaverand valve at the fllng staton. Unscrewng the plastc cap The tyre and rm alone are not able to hold the ar (except for tubular tyres wth road bkes). Therefore, an nner tube has to be placed nsde the tyre to retan the ar pressure. The tube s pumped up va a valve. Canyon bkes are equpped wth Sclaverand or race valves. Ths type of valve s desgned for hghest pressures, but you need gettng used to ts handlng. Ths valve s provded wth a plastc cap to protect t from drt. Tyre pressure range ps bar ps bar Ar pressure n ps and bar Wth race or Sclaverand valves you frst have to undo the small knurled nut a lttle and press t n carefully untl ar starts to escape. Always rde your bcycle wth the pre-! scrbed tyre pressure and check the pressure at regular ntervals, at least once a week. Wth race or Sclaverand valves the valve must be unscrewed Valve adapter If your road bke has tubeless tyres, only use the tools of the respectve manufacturer for the mountng. For more detals, read the manuals of the tyre manufacturers or the nstructons on ther webstes. Rdng wth too low ar pressure may make the tyre come off the rm. Tyres allowng an nflaton pressure of fve bars or more have to be mounted on hook bead rms, dentfable by the desgnaton C. Never nflate the tyre beyond ts maxmmum ar pressure. Otherwse t mght burst or come off the rm durng the rde. Rsk of an accdent! Make sure the valve dameter matches the! hole n the rm and the valve s always n uprght poston! Replace tyres wth a worn tread or brttle or frayed sdes. Dampness and drt penetratng the tyre can cause damage to ts nner structure. Replace spolt rm tapes mmedately. Excepton: Wth Mavc system wheels you do not need rm tapes. In the extreme case damage to the tyres may make the tubes suddenly burst, throwng you off your bke!
48 92 WHEELS RIMS AND SPOKES PUNCTURE WHEELS 93 RIM TRUENESS, SPOKE TENSION REPAIRING PUNCTURES The spokes connect the rm to the hub n the mddle of the wheel. An even spoke tenson makes for the true runnng of the wheel. If the tenson of ndvdual spokes changes, e.g. as a result of rdng too fast over a kerb or due to spoke breakage, the tensle forces actng on the rm become unbalanced and the wheel wll no longer run true. The functonng of your Canyon may even be mpared before you notce the untrue wheel by ts wobblng. Wth rm brakes the sdes of the rms also serve as brakng surfaces. An untrue wheel can mpar your brakng power. Loose spokes must be tghtened at once.! Otherwse the load on the other spokes and the rm wll ncrease. Trung (retrung) wheels s a dffcult job whch you should defntely leave to an ex-! pert! Check of wheel trueness wth brake pads Trung stand Do not rde wth untrue wheels. In the case of extreme sde-to-sde wobbles the brake pads of road bke brakes can mss the rm and get caught n the spokes! Ths normally results n an mmedate blockng of the wheels, possbly throwng you off your bke! It s therefore advsable to check the wheels for trueness from tme to tme. For ths purpose lft the wheel from the ground and spn t wth your hand. Watch the gap between rm and brake pads. If the gap vares by more than a mllmetre, you should ask a sklled mechanc to true up the wheel. Tyre punctures can happen to any cyclst. As long as you have the necessary tools for changng tyres and tubes and a spare tube or a tyre repar kt, ths need not mean the end of your cycle tour, however. For bkes wth quck-releases all you need for changng tubes are two tyre levers and a pump; f your wheels are secured wth nuts or ant-theft lock you also need a sutable wrench for removng the wheel. WHEEL REMOVAL If you have road bke calper brakes, open the quck-release lever at the brake (Shmano and SRAM) or shft the pn n the shft/brake lever unt at the handlebars (Campagnolo). If you have deralleur gears, you should shft the chan to the smallest sprocket before removng the rear wheel. Ths shfts the rear deralleur rght to the outsde where t does not nterfere wth the removal of the wheel. Open the quck-release, as descrbed n chapter How to use quck-releases and thru axles. If you cannot remove the wheel after releasng the lever or nut, t s probably stll beng held n place by dropout catches. They come as projectons whch jut nto the droup-outs. In these cases, just release the quck-release adjustng nut by a few turns and slp the wheel past the catch. You wll fnd t easer to remove the rear wheel, f you pull the rear deralleur rearwards a lttle. Lft your Canyon a lttle off the ground and gve the wheel a lght blow wth your hand so that t drops out. Shft to the smallest sprocket before dsmountng the rear wheel Openng the release lever at the brake Drop-out catches at the fork To remove the rear wheel pull the rear deralleur slghtly to the rear

Press the tyre from the rm sde towards the centre of the rm. You wll fnd t easer to remove the tyre, f you do ths around ts entre crcumference. Apply the plastc tyre lever to one bead of the tyre about 5 cm left or rght from the valve and lever the tyre out of the rm. Hold the tyre lever tght n ts poston. Slp the second tyre lever between rm and tyre at a pont about ten centmeters beyond the frst one and lever the next porton of the bead over the edge of the rm. After leverng a part of the tyre bead over the edge of the rm you should normally be able to slp off the whole tyre on one sde by movng the tyre lever around the whole crcumference. Now you can pull out the nner tube. Take care the valve does not get caught, as ths can damage the nner tube. Repar the puncture accordng to the operatng nstructons of the repar kt manufacturer. Press the tyre towards the centre of the rm Apply the tyre levers and lft the tyre bead over the rm edge Remove the nner tube from the tyre After havng removed the tyre, you should check the rm tape. The tape should le squarely n the base of the rm coverng all spoke ends and should nether be torn nor brttle. In the case of rms wth double base known as double chamber rms the tape must cover the entre rm base. For ths type of rm only use rm tapes made of fabrc or durable plastc. Excepton: Wth Mavc system wheels you do not need rm tapes. In case you are not sure wth regard to your rm tape, please contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) If necessary, you can remove the whole tyre by pullng the other tyre bead off the rm. MOUNTING CLINCHER AND FOLDING TYRES When mountng a tyre make sure no foregn matter such as drt or sand gets nsde the tyre and you do not damage the nner tube. Slp one bead of the tyre onto the rm. Usng your thumbs, press the bead over the edge of the rm over the entre crcumference. You should be able to do ths wthout any tools, regardless of the type of tyre. Stck the valve of the tube through the hole n the rm. Inflate the tube slghtly so that t becomes round and push t nto the tyre all the way round. Make sure not to leave any folds n the tube. To fnsh mountng the tyre start at the pont opposte the valve. Usng your thumbs, press the second bead of the tyre over the edge of the rm as far as you can. Make sure the nner tube does not get pnched and squashed between tyre and rm. Ths s prevented by pushng the nner tube nto the tyre hollow wth a fnger as you work along. Rm tape n the rm Put the valve nto the rm hole Press the tyre wth your hand onto the rm If the fabrc of the tyre s destroyed by the perforatng object, replace the tyre as a precauton. Please read the operatng nstructons of the brake and the gear manufacturer, enclosed wth the BkeGuard. Replace spolt rm tapes mmedately.
50 96 WHEELS PUNCTURE PUNCTURE WHEELS 97 Work the tyre nto the rm by approachng the valve symmetrcally from both sdes. Towards the end you wll have to pull the tyre vgorously downwards to make the already mounted porton of the tyre slp towards the deepest part of the rm base. Ths wll ease the job notceably on the last centmetres. Check agan the proper seat of the nner tube nsde the tyre and press the last stretch of tyre over the edge of the rm by usng the balls of your thumb. If ths does not work, you wll have to use tyre levers. Make sure the blunt ends pont towards the nner tube and the nner tube does not get damaged. Press the valve deep nto the tyre so that the nner tube does not get caught between rm and tyre beads. Does the valve stand uprght? If not, dsmount one bead agan and reposton the nner tube. To make sure the nner tube does not get pnched between rm and bead, nflate the tyre a lttle and then move t sdeways back and forth between the sdes of the rm. Whle dong ths you can also check whether the rm tape has been dsplaced. Inflate the nner tube only to the desred pressure. The maxmum pressure s ndcated on the sde of the tyre. Check the proper seat of the tyre by means of the wtness lne on the sde of the tyre just above the edge of the rm. Make sure the wtness lne s even wth the rm edge all the way around the tyre. Press the tyre to make sure the tube does not get caught between rm and tyre beads Wtness lne all around the sde of the tyre REMOVING TUBULAR TYRES Deflate the tyre completely. To dsmount the tyre, start opposte the valve by pushng the tyre to the sde untl a gap appears and the tyre starts to come off. If the tyre remans tght, stck a tyre lever nto the gap and lft the tyre off the rm. Replacng an ndvdual tube s mpossble. Instead you have to mount a complete tubular tyre. En route the tyre cannot be glued and s consequently not tght on the rm even when nflated. Therefore, be sure to rde back very slowly and carefully by takng the shortest way possble. Back home, you have to glue the tubular tyre, as descrbed n the followng. MOUNTING TUBULAR TYRES To mount a tubular tyre properly so that t durably stays n place you should take yourself some tme and proceed stepwse. A lttle practce and experence wth the glue and tubular model you are usng can speed up the job. Tubular tyres can be glued ether wth lqud tyre glue or wth adhesve tapes. One advantage of usng tape s that t can be done farly quckly. However, ths may not always gve a suffcently frm bond of the tyre on the rm. In the event of a roadsde puncture the tape wll often clng to the dsmounted tyre and your spare tyre may not bond to the rm suffcently well. Roll off the tyre untl there s a gap Use a tyre lever to remove the tyre Tubular tyre glue If you have a puncture en route, you can try to repar t wthout dsmountng the wheel and wthout removng the tube. Inflate the tube, leave the valve stckng n the rm and frst look for the hole where the ar s escapng. Brng the nner tube close to your ear and watch out for hssng noses. When you have found the hole, look for the correspondng place on the tyre and examne t. Often you wll fnd the foregn body stckng n the tyre. Remove t, f necessary. A better alternatve, therefore, s to glue the tyre to a generous bed of several layers of lqud tyre glue. Glue not only gves a frmer bond, t usually also remans on the rm when dsmountng the tyre. If your bke has carbon rms, you have to use specal tubular tyre glue (e.g. from Contnental). Be sure to read the operatng nstructons of the manufacturer of tubular tyre glue for carbon rms before applyng t. A poorly glued tubular tyre can come off the rm. Rsk of an accdent!
51 98 WHEELS PUNCTURE PUNCTURE WHEELS 99 Nevertheless, you should stll remove the spare tyre agan after completng your tour. To acheve a stronger bond you can then retreat the adhesve bed and the tyre wth glue and remount the tyre. Wat for the solvent to evaporate completely before you start to glue the tyre onto the rm. Glung the tyre s easest wth the wheel clamped n a trung stand or mounted on an old fork clamped n a vce. If your wheels have very hgh rm edges, unscrew the valve core from the valve wth specal mountng tools and mount a valve extenson nstead. Then screw the valve core nto the extended valve. Now you can nflate and deflate the mounted tyre va the extended valve n the usual way. Inflate the tyre to a pont where t starts to become round and then stck the valve through the hole n the rm. Startng from the valve and workng n both drectons press the tyre nto the rm all the way round. If you are unable to mount t completely on the rm or f ths would requre excessve force, leave off tryng, snce t mght not work wth force alone. After mountng the tubular tyre, spn the wheel and see whether the tyre runs true. The area where the valve comes out of the tyre s often thckened whch leads to a vertcal runout of the rm and makes the wheel jolt durng the rde. Remove the burrs from the valve hole of an alumnum rm or countersnk t wth a bg drll, a trangular scraper or a round fle. If you have carbon rms, be careful when removng the burrs from the hole edge wth a round fle. Insert the fle only from the outsde to the nsde and not vce versa, otherwse the fbres of the synthetc matrx mght fray out. Seal the area wth nstant glue subsequently. Ths pretreatment wll lead to an mproved valve fttng to the rm. If tme permts, you can leave the unglued tyre nflated on the rm for a few days to make the fnal mountng easer. Clean the base of the rm from any grease or ol usng a rag soaked n sprt or benzne. Mountng the valve extenson Checkng the true runnng wth brake Tyre glues do not only stck on rms and! tyres, they also clng qute stubbornly to fngers and clothes. Ths makes t advsable to wear old clothes when mountng tubulars. When mountng a tyre on a rm that has already been used, t may be necessary to carefully remove glue resdues and drt wth emery cloth. Be careful not to damage the carbon materal. When you are done, wpe the rm wth a soft rag and benzne. Wth lqud tyre glue you wll need several layers to create a good adhesve bed. Spread the tyre glue evenly and as thnly as possble around almost the entre crcumference of the rm. Leave a secton of fve to ten centmetres wthout glue at a place just opposte the valve to make t easer to remove the tyre agan at a later date. Wth a lttle practce you wll be able to apply the glue straght from the tube. If ths does not work at frst you mght fnd t easer to use a stff brush. If you are usng tyre glue from a can you wll need a brush n any case. Let the tyre glue dry untl t loses ts stcky lqud touch. Ths can take up to a few hours. In the same way add another two thn flms of glue and let them dry. Leave the wheel as t s at least untl the next day. Before mountng the tyre also apply a flm of glue to the base tape. To complete the adhesve bed add one last flm of glue. Let the topmost layer dry for a short tme and, whle t stll feels syrupy, place the wheel on the ground wth the valve hole facng upward. Inflate the tyre untl t starts to round and then stck the valve through the valve hole and press t frmly aganst the rm. Make sure the sdes of the tyre do not touch the adhesve bed, snce your tyre wll otherwse look smudgy rght away. Applyng the tyre glue drectly from the tube Stck the valve of the slghtly nflated tube through the hole n the rm Before dsmountng a wheel, be sure to! read chapters The wheels and How to use quck-releases and thru axles. Benzne and tyre glue should only be used n a well ared place, snce both materals are hghly flammable. Keep them n a safe place out of chldren s reach.

52 100 WHEELS PUNCTURE PUNCTURE WHEELS 101 If you have left the secton opposte the valve hole free of glue, you need not be concerned about glue smearng on the ground or drt gettng nto the glue when you place the wheel on the ground. Take hold of the tyre rght and left of the valve wth both hands, pull t vgorously downward and work t bt by bt nto the base of the rm untl you have about 20 centmetres left to go. Startng from the top agan on ether sde of the valve pull the tyre down wth your hands, lettng them gradually slp down to the not yet mounted secton. Keepng the tyre taut by holdng your fngers aganst the rm and your thumbs on the tyre, brace the wheel aganst your hps. Heave the tyre wth both thumbs nto the base of the rm. Heavng the tyre nto the rm base MOUNTING WHEELS Mountng the wheel s done n the reverse of dsmountng. Make sure the wheel s correctly seated n the drop-outs and accurately centred between the fork legs or the rear and chanstays. Check the proper seat of the quck-release (see chapter How to use quck-releases and thru axles ) and connect, f necessary, the brake cable mmedately or close the release lever! Checkng the true runnng wth brake pads When the tyre s seated n the base, t has to be centred, as t wll rarely run true rght away. Clamp the wheel n the mountng stand agan and spn t. If the tread does not run exactly n the centre or f t swerves to the sde at any place, lft t up at that place, twst t a lttle nto true and let t go agan. Pressng the tyre wth the thumbs over the rm edge Wtness lne all around the sde of the tyre When the tyre runs smoothly n the centre, take the wheel off the mountng stand and nflate the tyre to approxmately half ts nomnal pressure. Lean your hands on the ends of the axle and quck-release skewers and roll the wheel a few metres on the ground. As you roll the wheel, vary between pressng t vertcally downward and at a slant to ether sde. If the tyre stll runs true durng the fnal check, nflate t to ts maxmum pressure and wat 8 hours at least or even better a whole day, before settng off for the frst tme. Beforehand adjust the pressure of the newly mounted tyre accordng to the manufacturer s recommendatons and to your own needs. Checkng the tyre trueness wth the brake pads Keep n mnd that after dsmountng a tubular tyre en route t wll not be attached to the rm as frmly as before. Therefore, rde partcularly carefully on the last part of your tour. Back home, you wll need to glue t properly agan. Close the quck-release lever (Shmano, SRAM) or shft the pn n the shft/ brake-lever unt (Campagnolo) and check before you set off agan, whether the brake pads ht the brake surfaces. Make sure the wheel s correctly and frmly fxed n the drop-outs. After mountng the wheel make sure the brake pads or the rm are free of grease or other lubrcants. Be sure to do a brake test! Improper mountng can lead to malfunc ton or tyre damage. It s therefore absolutely necessary to follow the manufacturer s operatng nstructons enclosed wth the delvery. Improper mountng may cause malfuncton or even brake falure. It s therefore absolutely necessary to follow the manufacturer s operatng nstructons enclosed wth the delvery. If the tyre fabrc was, however, runed by a perforatng object, replace the tyre to be on the safe sde.
53 102 HEADSET HEADSET 103 THE HEADSET The headset connects fork, stem, handlebars and front wheel to the frame, but allows them to turn freely as a unt. It must afford vrtually no resstance to turnng, f your Canyon s to go straght, stablzng tself as t runs. Shocks caused by uneven road surfaces subject the headset to consderable stress. It may therefore happen to become loose and maladjusted. CHECKING AND READJUSTING Check the headset for play by placng your fngers around the upper head cup. Brng your weght to bear on the saddle, pull the front brakes wth your other hand and push your Canyon frmly back and forth wth the wheel remanng on the ground. If there s play n the bearng, the upper head cap wll move notceably relatve to the lower cup. Another way to check the headset s to lft the front wheel a lttle off the ground and then let t drop. If there s play n the bearng, you wll hear a rattlng nose n ths area. To check the bearng for ease of runnng, lft the frame untl the front wheel no longer touches the ground. Move the handlebars from the left to the rght. The front wheel should turn very easly from far left to far rght wthout catchng anywhere. A lght tap on the handlebars should be enough to turn the wheel to the sde. Check the headset for play by placng your fngers around the upper head cup and by movng your Canyon back and forth wth actuated brake lever To check the bearng for ease of runnng, lft the front wheel and move t Adjustng the headset requres a certan! amount of experence and should, therefore, be left to a sklled mechanc. If you want to try t by yourself, be sure to carefully read the operatng nstructons of the headset manufacturer beforehand! THREADLESS HEADSET: AHEADSET The specal feature of ths system s that the stem s not encased by, but rather clamped onto the fork tube, whch n ths case s threadless. The stem s an mportant part of the headset bearngs. Its clampng force secures the bearng n ts set poston. Release the clampng bolts located on the sdes or rear sde of the stem.

55 106 TRANSPORT TRANSPORT 107 TRANSPORT OF YOUR CANYON BIKE TAKING YOUR CANYON BY CAR There are several ways of transportng your Canyon by car. Canyon recommends puttng the bke nto the boot to take t wth you. Rear carrers are becomng more and more popular. Ther bg advantage over roof carrers s that you do not have to lft up the bcycles so hgh to attach them. Make sure the fastenngs do not create any damage to the fork or frame. Rsk of breakage! Whatever system you opt for, make sure t comples wth the relevant safety standards of your country! TAKING YOUR CANYON BY PLANE Bkes do take away a lot of space nsde a boot, but they are also better protected aganst drt, theft and damage. Transport by car If you ntend to take your Canyon wth you when you go on a trp by plane, pack t nto the BkeGuard or BkeShuttle. The Canyon BkeGuard Take, however, care that the cables, lghts and wres and n partcular the gears do not get damaged. Protect the bke wth paddng materal such as blankets or the lke. Ths s also a good dea, when your bke s heavly soled, so that the drt does not wpe off on the seat upholstery. Make sure to secure your bke. If transportng the bcycle nsde the boot s mpossble, nearly every car accessory dealer and car company offers carrer systems whch allow bcycle transport wthout dsassembly. The usual desgn nvolves rals fxed to the roof of the car onto whch the bcycles are fxed wth clamps grppng the down tubes. Pull the brake lever and secure t wth a! strong rubber band, when transportng a cyclocross bke. Secure your Canyon when transportng t! nsde a car. In the event of an accdent unsecured loads nsde a car may be an addtonal rsk for the occupants. Often you wll fnd t necessary to dsmount one or even both wheels to load the bke nto the car. Be sure to read chapter The wheels, notably secton Reparng punctures, before removng a wheel. If you have dsc brakes, be sure to mount! the safety locks before transportng your cyclocross bke wth the wheels dsmounted. In the event your Canyon has not been! packed for dspatch accordng to the enclosed packng nstructons, you have no rght to clam repar of possbly occurrng transport damage from Canyon Bcycles GmbH. Do not use a bke carrer system on whch the bke has to be mounted upsde down,.e. wth handlebars and saddle fxed face down to the rack. Ths way of fastenng the bke subjects the handlebars, stem, saddle and seat post to extreme stress durng transport and can lead to falure of these parts! Do not buy a bke carrer system where the front wheel has to be removed and your Canyon s secured by the fork. Transportng Canyon road bkes on con-! ventonal bke carrers wth clamps s not permtted. Most clamps are potental sources of damage to large-dameter frame tubes! Carbon frames are partcularly susceptble to beng damaged rreparably. Unvsble damage occurrng on ths occason may lead to severe crashes. Pack the wheels n specal wheel bags to protect them nsde the sutcase or cardboard box. Do not forget to take the necessary tools, a torque wrench, bts and ths manual wth you to be able to assemble the bcycle and to get t ready for use at your destnaton. If you have dsc brakes, be sure to mount! the safety locks before transportng your cyclocross bke wth the wheels dsmounted. Pack the wheels n specal wheel bags to! protect them nsde the sutcase or cardboard box. Please make sure the lghts and the number plate of your car are not hdden from vew. For some carrers a second exteror rear vew mrror s requred by the road traffc regulatons. Read the operatng nstructons of your bcycle carrer and observe the maxmum load capacty and recommended or prescrbed drvng speed. The Canyon BkeShuttle Check whether your bcycle s properly fastened before and at regular ntervals durng the rde. A bcycle that detaches from the roof carrer may endanger other road users. Bear n mnd that your car has a greater! overall heght wth the bcycle on t. Measure the overall heght and place a sgn statng the heght somewhere n the cockpt or on the steerng wheel so that t can be easly seen.
56 108 CARE AND INSPECTION CARE AND INSPECTION 109 GENERAL NOTES ON CARE AND INSPECTION Your Canyon s a product of hgh qualty and technology. Nevertheless, as wth other types of vehcles, you should stll see to t regularly and have an expert do the scheduled mantenance work. Lghtweght bkes need to have ther safety-relevant components replaced regularly (see chapter Servce and mantenance schedule ). Ths s essental to ensure the safe and relable functonng of all components and for your bke to gve you many years of rdng enjoyment and safety. WASHING AND CLEANING YOUR CANYON Cleanng the Canyon wth rag and water A much more gentle way of cleanng your Canyon s wth a soft water jet and/or wth a bucket of water and a sponge or large brush. Cleanng your Canyon by hand has another postve sde-effect n that t enables you to dscover defects n the pant or worn or defectve components at an early stage. After dryng your Canyon you should mpregnate ts panted and metal surfaces wth hard wax (except for rms wth rm brakes). Apply the hard wax to spokes, hubs, bolts and nuts etc., as well. Use a hand-held atomzer for parts wth small surfaces. Polsh waxed surfaces wth a soft cloth to gve them a nce shne and make them water repellent. Inspect the chan after you have fnshed cleanng and grease t, f necessary (see chapter The gears, notably secton Chan mantenance ). Polshng pant and metal surfaces wth hard wax Dred sweat, drt and salt from rdng durng the wnter or n sea ar harm your Canyon. You should therefore make a habt of regularly cleanng all the components of your Canyon and protectng them from corroson. Check all lghtweght components Check condton of chan Do not clean your Canyon wth a steam jet. Ths cleanng method s quck, but t entals serous drawbacks. As the water s ejected at hgh pressure n a narrowly focussed jet, t may pass through seals and penetrate bearngs. Ths leads to the dluton of lubrcants and consequently to greater frcton and onset of corroson. Ths destroys and mpars the functonng of the bearng races n the long term. Steam jet treatment also tends to abrade stckers. When workng on your Canyon restrct! yourself to jobs for whch you are equpped and have the necessary knowledge.! Do not clean your Canyon wth a strong water or steam jet from a short dstance. Protect the upward facng part of the chan stays and any places where cables mght rub wth fol, neoprene covers or the lke. Ths wll avod any unpleasant scratches and abrason marks. Whle cleanng, look for cracks, scratches, dents, as well as bent or dscoloured materal. If you are n doubt, please call our servce hotlne at +44 (0) Have defectve components replaced mmedately and touch up pant defects. Before applyng any hard wax on the frame! of your Canyon, be sure to test t n a less vsble spot frst! Keep cleanng agents and chan ol away from the brake pads and brake surfaces of the rm, as the brakes could fal otherwse (see chapter The brake system ). Keep carbon clampng areas, such as handlebars, stem, seat post and seat tube, free from grease and ol. Remove tough ol or grease stans from! panted and carbon surfaces wth a petroleum-based cleanng agent. Never use degreasng agents contanng acetone, methyl chlorde etc., non-neutral, chemcal or solvent-contanng cleanng agents that could attack the surface!
57 110 CARE AND INSPECTION CARE AND INSPECTION 111 SAFEKEEPING AND STORING YOUR CANYON SERVICING AND INSPECTION If you regularly look after your Canyon durng the season, you wll not need to take any specal precautons when storng t for a short tme, apart from securng t aganst theft. It s advsable to store your Canyon n a dry and ary place. There are some thngs to bear n mnd when puttng your Canyon away for the wnter: Inflated nner tubes tend to gradually lose ar when the bke s not used for a long tme. If your Canyon s left standng on flat tyres for an extended perod, ths can cause damage to the structure of the tyres. It s therefore better to hang the wheels or the entre bke or to check the tyre pressure regularly. Clean your Canyon and protect t aganst corroson as descrbed above. Dsmount the saddle and allow for any mosture that may have entered to dry away. Spray a lttle fnely atomzed ol nto the seat tube (except for carbon frames). Store your Canyon n a dry place. Swtch the gear to the smallest chanrng and the smallest sprocket. Ths relaxes the cables and sprngs as much as possble. Store the bke wth the chan on outmost sprocket and smallest chanrng Check the ar pressure at regular ntervals Frst servce: A specal mantenance schedule has been developed by our experenced techncans. On the frst klometres/mles, for example, the wheels may be subject to a certan beddng n process or Bowden and brake cables may stretch, makng gear shftng mprecse. Dependng on how much you cycle, the repar of worn down parts may be necessary already. In ths case you wll be contacted by a servce techncan beforehand. Regular annual servce: Followng a long and challengng season we recommend that you have your bke thoroughly checked. Who could do ths better than those who have bult your bke? The annual servce wll be carred out by our sklled staff accordng to a mantenance schedule talored to your bcycle type. The Canyon torque wrench Keep cleanng agents and chan ol away from the brake pads and brake surfaces of the rm! Otherwse the brake mght fal throwng you off your bke! If your Canyon has carbon rms, do not hang t on the rms! Rsk of breakage! In case you pack your Canyon to send t n to the Canyon workshop, be sure to strctly follow the packng nstructons How to pack your road bke enclosed wth the BkeGuard. In partcular lghtweght components may have a reduced servce lfe. For your own safety make sure to have the components lsted n chapter Servce and mantenance schedule checked at the ndcated ntervals and replaced, f necessary. To be able to enjoy your Canyon for many! years t needs to be servced regularly. The schedule gven n chapter Servce and mantenance schedule s a rough gude for cyclsts who rde ther bke between 1,000 and 2,500 km (620 and 1,550 mles) a year. If your Canyon does harder servce, ether because your mleage s consstently greater or because you rde a great deal on poor road surfaces or cross-country, t wll requre correspondngly shorter mantenance perods. Ths ncludes frequent rdes n the ran or generally n most condtons, as well.
58 112 CARE AND INSPECTION SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE 113 Canyon safety check: If you rde your Canyon clearly less than 1,000 km (620 mles) a year, t requres correspondngly less servcng. In ths case the Canyon safety check s exactly what you need. Our specalsts have developed an extra schedule for ths demand-orented mantenance. Ths schedule ncludes less routnes than an annual servce, however all safety-relevant ssues. We recommend that you have ths check carred out before settng off nto the new bke season or before gong on a bke trp so that you can take off wthout a care. Please make an appontment n advance to ensure that your Canyon runs through ths check as quckly as possble. Have your Canyon servced at regular ntervals! If a component needs to be replaced, make! t a rule to only use orgnal spare parts. Durng the frst 2 years (and the warranty perod respectvely) Canyon makes avalable all essental spare parts. In the event of unavalablty Canyon wll offer spare parts of equal or hgher value. You wll fnd numerous servce moves on our webste that wll help you carry out small repar and mantenance works. Never do work on your bcycle unless you feel absolutely sure about t! If you are n doubt or f you have any questons, contact our servce hotlne at +44 (0) or send us an e-mal to SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE After the beddng-n perod you need to have your bke servced by an expert at regular ntervals. The ntervals gven n the schedule below are supposed to be gudelnes for cyclsts who cycle around 1,000 to 2,500 km (620 to 1,550 mles) a year or around 40 to 100 hours. If your Canyon does harder servce, ether because your mleage s consstently greater or because you rde a great deal on poor road surfaces, t wll requre correspondngly shorter servce ntervals.

62 120 WARRANTY AND GUARANTEE WARRANTY AND GUARANTEE 121 A NOTE ON WEAR Some components of your bke are subject to wear due to ther functon. The rate of wear depends on care and mantenance as well as on the way you use your bke (klometres travelled, rdes n the ran, drt, salt etc.). Bkes that are often left standng n the open may also be subject to ncreased wear through weatherng. These components requre regular care and mantenance. Nevertheless, sooner or later they wll reach the end of ther servce lfe, dependng on condtons and ntensty of use. Parts that have reached ther lmt of wear must be replaced. Ths apples to the followng parts: chan, cables, grp coverngs or bar tape, chanrngs, sprockets, pulleys, gears cables, tyres, saddle coverng (leather) and brake pads. Brake pads wth worn down wear ndcators,.e. grooves, (bottom brake pad) must be replaced by orgnal spare parts Have the thckness of your rms checked at the latest when you are through your second set of brake pads RIMS WITH RIM BRAKES GUARANTEE Over and above the statutory warranty we gve a voluntary guarantee of altogether 6 years on frames and forks of racng and trathlon machnes. Ths guarantee runs from the date of purchase and only apples to clams made by the ntal buyer. It does not cover pant damage. We reserve ourselves the rght to repar defectve frames or forks or to replace them wth the relevant successor model. These ssues can be clamed under guarantee only. Addtonal costs, such as assembly and transport costs etc., shall not be borne by us. The guarantee does not cover damage caused by mproper or other than the ntended use, such as neglect (poor care and mantenance), crashes, overloadng or resultng from changes made to the frame or fork or from the mountng or remountng of addtonal components. Damage resultng from jumps or other types of overstress are lkewse not covered by the guarantee. Sx-year guarantee The brake pads of rm brakes are subject to wear due to ther functon. If you use your bke for compettve cyclng or n hlly terran, they may have to be replaced qute frequently. Regularly check the condton of the pads and have them replaced by a dealer. Brakng causes wear not only to the brake pads but also to the rms. Therefore, check your rms regularly, e.g. when pumpng up the tyres. Rms wth wear ndcators have rngs or a gap that come nto vew when the rm reaches ts lmt of wear. Take note of the specfcatons gven on the rm. Ask an expert to examne the remanng thckness of the rms at the latest when you are through your second set of brake pads. Sgns of deformaton or fne cracks that appear n the sdes of a rm when you ncrease the tyre pressure are an ndcaton that the rm has reached the end of ts servce lfe. In ths case the rm must be replaced. Canyon road, tme tral, trathlon or track bkes are hgh-end sports equpment, representng lghtweght constructon as pnnacle of engneerng. Also be a professonal when t comes to handlng of the materal. Msuse, unprofessonal assembly or nsuffcent servcng can render the racng machne unsafe. Rsk of an accdent!
63 122 CRASH REPLACEMENT CRASH REPLACEMENT In the event of an accdent or severe crash, the hgh forces exerted on the frame and the fork can lead to structural falure durng subsequent use. Wth our Crash Replacement (CR) program we offer you the opportunty to replace your damaged Canyon frame at a greatly reduced cost. Ths offer s vald up to three years after the date of purchase. You ll receve the same or a smlar frame from our current product range (wthout add-on parts such as seat post, front deralleur or stem). The CR-servce s lmted to the orgnal owner and to damages that compromse the functonalty of the bke. We reserve the rght to suspend ths servce f we detect that the damage has been caused unreasonably.
