Do they have a notification option? I’m debating picking up the Dude for winter riding and there was an option to alert me when it’s available. Of course that is truly an unreleased bike and not just a stock issue.
Doesn’t help it get there any sooner but at least you don’t have to check every day.
Theres a few apps/programs that people use for the immediate notification. Dont recall the name but im sure its google-able. Their built in one is apparently pretty slow and by the time you get the notification, chances are good its sold out. Their releases seem all over the place and often only a few sizes/specs.
Theyre great bikes but prices are creeping up, somewhat as expected. Theyre still cheaper than “the common brands” but the margin is shrinking. Love my Aeroad but getting them is a real PITA
The other unfortunate thing about Canyon is their component spec and sizing is always way off what most would want - so not only are they no longer that great of a deal for the base bike, you have to factor in reselling parts that no one wants and buying in a different size… 10-28 AXS cassettes and 35/48 AXS rings make no sense for most riders even on an Aeroad.
It basically means they have no idea when it’ll be available.
I was looking at one of their tri bikes. The date of availability kept getting pushed from “April 2021” to “October 2021” to “Winter 2022” to “Coming Soon.”
Similar deal with their gravel bikes. Miraculously, a Grizl in my size that I actually wanted was in stock in December 2021. So I bought it, and three days later it was out stock. Out of curiosity, I followed its availability thereafter and it went from “Coming Spring 2022” to getting discontinued entirely.
As we know, they’re not alone. I originally wanted a Santa Cruz Stigmata. Called up the LBS in September 2021 and the person on the phone said to “check back next year”.
Only seeing this thread now, having the exact same experience.
Have been keeping my eye on an Endurace CF SL 8 since Early April.
Dates were pushed from July, to Aug, to November, back to August that got me excited.
Then got an email from Canyon to say “sorry” for the delay and a discount on accessories. Which is no use as I can’t buy the bike
I have looked at other bikes in their range, and may be tempted by an Aeroad if it actually becomes avail by the expected date (I know there is an issue with the seat post but according to their chat, its been resolved).
TBH I am a bit bummed as I have looked at Cube C62 Giant TCR & Defy and tried to find some avail this year. No joy as of yet.
Yeah I’m also eyeing that model, but I’m not even sure if that will be comming back ever, since its Ultegra 11sp and maybe they will replace that with a 105 Di2 model or something… I would really like if it comes back into stock that price is just really good even with buying some Carbon wheels you are still below the price Trek / Specialized / Cannondale etc. are charging for a similar model and you get a Power meter with it.
Honestly even with the price increases they are still way way cheaper then the big brands, some other brands like Cube / Merida etc are closer, but still not there and their Endurance bikes are also considerably heavier… On top of that good luck with actually test riding the bike you want in the correct size, since most dealers here have such limited stock that you need to be lucky that they have one to test…
