    Canyon Endurace (also) as gravel bike

    Hi all,

    I've been struggling with this question already for months and cannot imagine a better forum than this one to get advise.

    I want to buy a bike (budget 1400 - 1800 EUR) and doubting between the Endurace AL Disk 7.0 or Grail AL 7.0.
    My profile:
    Go riding once a week - 80 - 100km
    90% pavement, 10% gravel (sometimes path in the woods but not muddy or so)
    Also want to go riding from time to time with others who do 100% pavement
    Want to do a 3-4 days tour once or twice a year with topeak bags

    Canyon says I should go for the Grail but it's sold out until December! So I've done some reading on blogs and it seems that the Endurace with wider tires might also be a good fit for me.
    Does it really matter? Could I also put 33mm tires on the Endurace? Canyon says max 28mm.

    Anyone having experience also doing some grail and bike packing with the Endurace?

    Thanks a lot,

    Based on where you plan to ride, I'd think the Endurance is better suited than the Grail.

    From what I've read, you can mount up to 35mm tires on the Endurance to help take the edge off of the gravel sections.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.
