No frills, lightweight - Canyon Torque DHX '14 2

Canyon Torque DHX, Size S, 2014
Canyon Torque DHX, Size S, 2014 Haters gonna hate cheap brands, but for its simple clean forms, and beautifully curved downtube, for me it is one of the most beautiful frames made these days. Reasons for coming in at about 15.3 kg (34lbs):
Vivid Air
Boxxer WC
Carbon cranks direct mount
decent-weight wheels, run tubeless No weight saving for tyres and brakes, never ;) 2013 Vivid Air and Huber Bushings Combination of Sram Carbon cranks in direct mount, 28-32 chainguide (upper only) and Wolftooth 34t narrow/wide chainring >>> lightweight and not a single chaindrop in half a year Slim HT Pedals Keronite casting to fit raw look of frame.
Saint 820 brakes in 203/180 Fatbar Lite Carbon and Renthal stem. Note friendship ring around the handlebar (courtesy: niece) Another view on the friendship ring around the handlebar (courtesy: niece) Fast Suspension stanchions. Slick. got the looks to fit the shock. Fork tuned by Meister Karel. Customized Saint BB. Adaptor rings allow fitting a SRAM crank here. Best crank and much better bearing quality, imo
