    The Canyon Dude Wait Club

    As we have a Bucksaw Wait Club I thought I'd see if anyone else had ordered a Canyon Dude.

    Ordered my Dude CF 9.0 Unlimited on 22nd Feb with a delivery date of week 23 (01/06/15). At the rate that my mates are getting fat bikes (we now have 6 in the group), week 23 seems a long way off!

    I had never heard of that bike until now.

    The whole line looks sweet!

    I guess we now know why Felt changed the name of their bike to the Double Double or Double D.

    Cool bike. I hadn't seen it before. No US availability?

    Edit: Nope, can't get it in US. Too bad. That's a lot of bike for the money.

    Some nice touches on those frames. Very thoughtful design decisions.

    Yes, they sell direct and only Europe at the moment. They're getting more popular in the UK but you don't see as many as you do on the mainland. Maybe down to some scepticism of buying without seeing and partly, at the moment, down to a strong Pound (you have to buy in GBP for UK delivery) against the Euro, making them less value for money.

    I've ordered mine in Euros with delivery to a mate in Germany so getting it for under £2000 at todays rate.

    A mate said they were trying to set something up in the US but I can't find any info on that.

    I have always noticed Canyon bikes (especially in the Tour), but have never seen one in person.

    No North American distribution it looks like.

    Too bad...some other brands like Ghost are showing up here....I hope Canyon does too.

    Fatboy was the first fat bike I saw in the flesh and was mightily impressed. The wait for the Dude is a bit of a bummer, Canyon say they are on schedule but I'm looking for used On-One Fatty to tide me over.

    I'm very tempted as even their base bike is full carbon with XT for a £1700 is an amazingly good deal, the wait isn't too much an issue as I have the Farley. In reality though I don't think the weight savings will make much difference in practice though for my use.

    42hz - That's great news, I didn't know they'd started producing them yet. How does your delivery date compare to the original schedule?

    John - I'm looking forward to the low weight but I don't believe that bike weight, on its own, is the enemy it's made out to be. I ran a 38lb On-One Fatty from October to February and I climbed with it, way better than my 31lb Trance 29. Made me think that fit, geometry and weight (both bike and rider) are all equally important.

    So, what is the wait time on a "Dude"? Seems like a nice bike and they ship to Japan.

    Paid for mine last week, stronger GBP means I paid £1876 instead of £2199. Had an email confirming it's being assembled ready for shipping but I guess that is a standard reply so like you, hoping it's still on for 1st June!

    One of the most competitive price points I have seen for a carbon bike with a Bluto and those specs. It is a shame they don't sell in the US.

    Not mine, it's my buddy's, Canyon sent it to him to do some filming with it. I should be getting some ride time on it soon, maybe this weekend. Not sure if they ship them to the US or not.

    Nope says no shipments to US, Canada, or Australia at this time when you try to checkout.

    Looking good 42hz.

    Had two emails yesterday from Canyon, one saying my Dude had been delayed, the other confirming dispatch with a UPS tracking number, seems the right hand doesn't know etc etc.

    Anyway, I'm almost out of the wait club as it was delivered to my mate this morning, just need to get it couriered over to the UK now

    My 8.0 should be shipping out next week if all goes well.
    I started a Canyon Dude facebook group if you want to share tips on life with your Dude.

    The Canyon Dude Wait Club

    Got mine since wednesday. This bike is the bomb, better then i even hoped. Faster then my trek 26" f/s, more nimble, lighter and more fun. Yes it's stupid light, guess no more then 13 kg. And it's true about the grin:more smiles per miles. And now i'm ripping single tracks like there's no tomorrow. Hilly terrain? No interruption of the flow due to inertia of the fat wheels.

    Long climbs are a tad slower but no significant differences.

    Jumbo Jims are good traction, low rolling resitance. However, they float in mud. I fell twice taking muddy corners/turns.

    My wait ended last Monday night when I picked my mate up from the airport as he had brought my CF9.0 Unlimited over from Germany as hold luggage!

    First ride today on my local Cannock Chase. Lets get the negatives out of the way first. There is a black clamp bolt on one brake lever and chrome on the other... this doesn't sit well with my OCD! I prefer gloss not matt paint finish. Er, that is all.

    Now the positives... this thing rocks. I'd forgotten how much fun fat biking was but today I had a right blast. It's a large frame and at 28lb (12.7kg) it's the lightest bike in my garage, 1lb lighter than my CX, 3lb lighter than my trail bike. The fully rigid set-up can be harsh but the pay back is that every pedal stroke is converted to going forward. Grip is phenomenal. I didn't realise the front chain ring was only 28t, too small for my regular rides but we had fun finding the steepest hill we could and pedalling up it with plenty of grip and the front wheel just about staying down. The value for money is out of this world. The UK RRP is good but I paid the euro list of €2499 which with the strong pound meant I got it for £1887.... it's a steal.... in fact it almost feels dishonest. I met a guy today on a Spesh Fatboy and he thought mine would be over £3 grand, he nearly fell off when I told him how wrong he was.

    We've got a weekend away next week and this is the bike I'm taking... can't wait.

    Small update. I'm still very happy with the bike. Made it tubeless. Much to my surprise, on avarage i'm 4 km/h faster then on my trek f/s.

    What tubeless method did you use? I have those wheels on my Pivot and went split tube.

    Schwalbe sv10 24" splittube (~160gr). I had to fill with foam (laminate floor underlaymemt), because i had only a floorpump.

    Tires roll and weigh noticable lighter. Dunno how light, but total bike weight is about 12 kg.

    I made mine tubeless with a vacuum bag. It only adds about 15g and it seems to work great. It's like the split tube, but much lighter:

    I think that the laminate has de-laminated inside the fork just above the upper brake mount on the outer side of it. No cracks on the paint job or any other visual defects. The sound was getting louder as I pedaled back to home after noticing it.

    It looks like I'm able to get my money back from Canyon, so I'm of the waiting list again And this time it's going to stay that way...

    Hi guys and sorry for the misinformation. I jumped the gun, I found the reason for that noise while putting the bike together again.

    There's a stopper screw(my guess of the function of it) inside the top brake bracket, or what ever you call it, it was loose and it's causing the noise.

    So, I'm a Dude-man again.

    Me too

    Could anyone with Rude-fork check if both of the post have that stopper screw or not? There's nothing to stop it to go all the way inside the fork, so be very careful when you play around with it. If it goes into the fork it might be quite tricky to get it out from there.

    This is getting ridiculous, my 8.0 was supposed to ship July 27th and now it's on hold until august 21st due to a shortage of components. I ordered it July 3rd.

    ordered mine around the start of June, and got it 22nd july, CF 8.0 only thing I've changed is the bars, with for something with a bit more sweep, but other than that I'm leaving it stock as it really is an amazing bike right out of the box.... for everyone here on the "waiting list", trust me, its worth the wait ! what a bike :-)The Canyon Dude Wait Club-dude.jpg

    Any experience of using Bud/Lou combo in Dude? How about clearance?

    I'm a little undecided which to get, the fixed front fork or Rockshox..

    Currently I do have a 'fun' fat bike by Giant, Momentum Rocker 3, I'm thinking to replace it with the Dude, as the Dude is a much lighter and a higher quality bike. Giant's sister brand Momentum is a brand for street styled bike, for the lower end of the market.

    I bought the Rocker 3 to cruise to the coffee shops, which is something I'll mostly do with the Dude. However I would like to have the option to hit some trails too.

    Could anyone suggest how I should decide if I need the front shocks or not?

    It depends. I really like to have the extra suspension, in the rough and on the descents. How ever, it are the tires that make the bike plush. The bluto is much harsher in comparison to my old fox F100.

    Hi Chocolatemoe, you've said the Bluto is harsher compared to your other Fox suspension. Could this be caused by the additional weight of the Fat Tyre?

    Or does this mean, I perhaps should wait a little bit more until a better front fork becomes available?

    (Maybe I should move my comments into a new tread... )

    I say get the base 8.0 as you can add a Bluto later if you find it necessary. It is lighter and cheaper to go with the carbon fork - just adjust your tire pressure if you want more cushion.

    I have did the same. I will receive my Dude tomorrow and by the moment I have just bought the Kind Shock Lev seatpost. Will buy the Bluto later if necessary

    I've been perfectly happy with the 8.0 and rigid fork. I ride trails with lots of roots + rocks and the only thing I've changed is wider tires + tubeless. So, get the rigid, if you can live with the color...

    Thanks with the advice,

    Does sound like the carbon fork might be a good choice too, as long as it's not for DH events.

    That color - green/yellow is okay. =)

    Thanks for the great advice, I'll go with rigid and then maybe in the future get the Lulu upsidedown fork.

    Take care with the size you choose, the L is very big. I'm usually on L-bike, but with the Dude I'm on M.

    I'm 182cm. Local dealer said that M is good for up to 185cm. BUT you have to make your own mind what's good for you.

    I've used their online size calculator, I came up to be a M, and I've also emailed Canyon asking how far I'm off to a S. They insisted I should go to a M and said if I'm 4cm taller, I would fit into a L.. I'm 176cm tall.

    For me that calculator was dead accurate. I have a in between length 1,70cm, but it advised a S correctly. Fits like glove.

    I am 1,78 cm and the M is perfect for me. But I am not agree with them. I think M still being ok for 1,80 cm. The upper tube is very long in the L model according the geometry exposed by Canyon. Maybe another owner could confirm or not these point

    Yep, the L is very big. IMHO, the size issue is more of that, than S vs. M.

    For 176 I would take the M-size.

    Here's my M-frame so you can see how much seat tube is exposed (me been 182cm) I guess I would be OK with the L-size as well, but I prefer more upright riding position:

    I also have the M size and I am 182cm. The L might have been better for longer road rides, but for aggressive handling I think the M size is a good fit.

    Has anyone installed or considered installing a 29+ drivetrain on the canyon dude (with Bluto)? I am wondering if there is enough clearance.

    Tryout of a small pls - Surrey / south London

    Has anyone in Surrey or south London UK area got a small Dude I could try for size please?

    Canyon's sizer puts me firmly on a small but I have some doubts - a friend's medium Dude was OK (maybe a 50mm stem would have been better) - and generally I regard myself as a medium sized guy. The only way to be sure is to try one.

    The numbers I put into the sizer are:
    Height 172
    Inseam 79
    Weight 77
    Torso 61
    Shoulder 46
    Arm 57

    Thanks.

    These things must be popular (price+build+weight=not surprised) 9.0 is sold out.
    I guess I'll just have to wait.......or maybe just go for the rigid and wait for a better squishy fork to come out. What's the clearence on the fork? Does 4.8 fit?

    I was considerng the Ice Cream Truck as it has the best trail geo but it costs a lot more and weighs a ton compared to the Dude. I want a full fat for winter and an adventure 29+ for summer. The thought of an ICT fully loaded horrifies me and I'm not a weight weenie.

    Honestly I'd save yourself the hassle. My Canyon is great to ride...the issue is that Canyon service is worse than dire. Mine arrived faulty and after consistently being ignored it was resolved by the UK claims courts who had to send round the bailiff after ignoring the request for payment. Am now trying to source some replacement bits and....well 6 weeks later they still haven't got round to replying to the email.

    There are other companies out there who do great bikes and don't shut the door immediately after the point of sale. I fear anything more serious than a component swap out with the Canyon.

    Hey Guys
    Been looking at joining the Fat bike club.
    The Dude CF 8.0 looks like my pick.
    I do have one question. Has the frame got a inner cable inlet at the bottom of the seat tube for a dropper post ?

    Bike news sites are saying Canyon have started the process to launching the US, but no real timeline on when. No frame only option.

    Looks like the 2017 models are gone from the site. Anyone got a screencap of the new models? Same frame? Eagle specced?

    I'm 176cm / 82cm and ride a "M" Dude => perfect for me.
    Normally I prefer the bigger frame sizes - my old Trek Remedy was "L" and my current freeride bike is "L" too.

    Btw the 2017er modes are available at the (German) website: https://www.canyon.com/mtb/dude/

    My Dude wait is nearly over

    The Dude cf 9.0 arrived last Friday but as we had an 'ex hurricane' Ophelia blowing through, i haven't been able to get out on it yet.
    tonight will be the maiden voyage at last!

    my 3rd fatty now.
    1st was a terrible terrible lead framed thing, weighed more than my car.
    2nd was the On One Fatty Trail. Lovely.
    It caused me to sell my beloved full suspension 160mm travel AM bike which had became an ornament.
    now this sweet carbon beast.

    cant wait!

    Hub spacing is 197 mm rear 150 mm front. I believe only black models available in the US. You could call Canyon to confirm.
