I'll try not, but you don't have to worry. I'm more of a tornado magnet, seems I attract them when I go to TX, OK or MS shrug

Canyon was pretty easy to deal with. I guess during the pandemic they were a little overwhelmed. First time I called I was number 52 in the queue, the were supposed to call me back but did not. I gave them a break, because of the volume of calls. Once I ordered the bike shipped on the next business day and got to my house pretty fast. Bike was well boxed, even though FedEx tried hard to damage it. I had read of some people missing accessories in the box, but all of mine are there. Also IMO Canyon recommends to small of a size for most people, be sure of your measurements and size up if needed, if MTB make sure seat post height is not an issue.

Congrats on new bike day. I have no business on something that fancy or high caliber. My current replaced a 2002 Kona h/t. A '17 Marin steel h/t with 2.8 tires. I'm not quite 60, wanted a kind of a do-most things/ recreational and bikepack / camp thing. Enjoy

Got back from Texas and finished putting the bike together. Neighborhood ride felt good, the new geometry was not as severe as I feared. This bike was consider conservative anyway. Trails tomorrow if it does not rain. [Linked Image]
