    I am a bit sceptical, but my hope is that its the new XTR that delays the delivery.
    According to Shimano, the new XTR should be ready by the end of August..

    "The first deliveries will be the end of August and the beginning of September. We will first provide kit for OEM bike and you will see this a lot at Eurobike. In terms of in stores, people will be able to buy this around the beginning of October time"

    Hope my ramblings made some sense..
    Have you heard anything more?

    Ugh! Sorry to hear that. Hopefully that "last week of the month" pattern doesn't continue into 2019...

    I will probably buy Lux 8.0 pro race, any toughts on the CF SL carbon frame, is there any other difference except weight vs SLX frame?

    Am I crazy, or did the price just jump up on all the models? Pretty sure the top model was originally listed at 6,500 and now is showing 7,500.

    Crap. I was interested at 6500. At 7500, not so much.

    I've lost track of all the tariff talk. Maybe tariffs on Euro goods?

    Yep - the prise has gone up - according to my calculations about 10%

    I payed 46 399 NOK (plus 25% VAT) for my ęLUX CF SLX 9.0RT 19 L bkĽ

    Now itís 50 199 NOK (plus 25% VAT)

    Dang. Now $7000 for the 9.0 Pro. Still a better purchase fiscally than competitors but loved the initial price point.

    Aside from just getting it released stateside, Canyon needs to get more of the EU models here as well to cover the price range.

    Got my Lux 7.0 SL Race a couple of weeks ago. Only have three rides on it so far... an issue with the rear shock so Iím waiting to have it serviced.
    First impression; it feels fast on the easier terrain!
    This being my #3 bike, I went for the most bang for the buck. The 7.0 is a lot of bike for the money and I added the 125mm Bikeyoke Revive dropper. Very happy with both bike and pricepoint.

    With tubes. Setting it up tubeless when the snow has come and gone...

    Canyon US just raised their prices...a lot. The Lux CF SLX 9.0 was listed at 6500 US, now 7500. Thatís a big bump. Other models between 500-1000 higher. And still not available.

    Never underestimate an old man with a mountain bike.

    This really stinks! A nice lady in customer service had this to say...
    "The first Lux shipment should arrive as early as the end of November. Unfortunately, our prices are subject to change at any time. Some price changes are out of our control, such as tariff increases.
    We apologize for any inconvenience."

    Does the price rise for you even if you ordered the bike before this e-mail?

    In my case it didnít. The prices changed a couple of weeks before mine shipped. Was charged the price at the time I placed my order (of course).

    While the geometry isn't really what I'm after, it's a bit surprising the lower grade carbon frame of the CF SL 6.0 Pro (https://www.canyon.com/en-us/mtb/lux...l-6-0-pro-race) can be sold as complete bike for same price as the frame-only SLX https://www.canyon.com/en-us/mtb/lux...f-slx-frameset
