    Canyon 29er for racing

    Guys - thinking of making the leap to big wheels for the coming XC season. Considering this one

    Canyon | Mountainbikes | Grand Canyon AL 29 7.9

    I'm based in the UK so lots of mud and rain!


    Any thougths on this machine? Alternatives to consider?

    I'd love to try a Canyon, but no love for the US.

    Chainstay is 433.87 on the carbon and 438 for the al. Wheelbase is the same on medium.

    Cheap way to get one to the US. Use thr free ship within Germany and free bag allowance for returning international flight. There may be a military option for US troops within Germany. VAT is 19% refundable.

    I think it would be no problem for me to order one and send it over if someone is willing to trust me, that is. Maybe I could make a small income out of it next to my gap year before University?
