    Canyon website want me go to M too..but after I reading the measurement with my current M frame that need 25mm offset seat post I decided to go L with zero offset seat post,I am 183cm.

    Ya,this is my first 29er..few of my friend already on 29er,I like the way they roll over obstacles during uphill...when going up hill in obstacles trail they can easily smoked me.of course they can go faster when they are going down.

    Hope this bike can give me the control just like they describe on their website,can't wait to get it..

    This is unbelievable! We are so similar Lobotomy. I am 1.80 with 88cm inseam length and for 1cm of inseam the site does not assign me the medium frame. If i put 87cm inseam it lets me get the medium size. What's your inseam?

    88,5 - 89 cm. Go for the L, no doubt...

    I've ridden an M (alu frame) and it's too small.

    By the way the 8.9 Lime color bike is advertised with White fork's crown and in reality it comes with Lime crown which seems not to be even identical color with the lime nuance of the bike. Anyone would be more than welcomed to post some picture for us!

    To be honest it look great too..the most worried thing is,if I wanna upgrade the fork in future,it is very hard to sell out this shrek fork..
    But I think this fork is enough for me..just upgrade the wheelset and lighter cockpit it will become a very sweet bike already.
    When your's 8.9 arrive?i will get mine 10 days later.
