Getting started

1. First, open up the Bike Guard. Undo the cardboard tabs to open the lid.

2. Inside you will find your bike packed up with the rear wheel attached. The front wheel is strapped to the frame. Picture 1

3. Separately you will also find your seat post with saddle attached.

4. In addition to this there is a box with small parts and wheel quick-release.

5. Remove the small parts box. Picture 2

6. Inside you will find the instructions for assembling your new Canyon bike, the Canyon tool case and other small parts with instructions from other component manufacturers.

7. Locate the torque wrench and assembly paste in the small parts box.

8. Remove any cardboard packaging Picture 3 and pull your bike upwards to remove it from the Bike Guard Picture 4

9. Carefully unstrap the front wheel, seat post Picture 5 and any other parts attached to the frame. Picture 6 Picture 7

Inserting the seat post

Inserting a standard seat post

10. If either your frame or the seat post is made from carbon, or your bike is fitted with a Reverb dropper post, then you will need to apply carbon assembly paste before inserting the seat post. Picture 8 If both your seat post and frame are made of aluminium then apply standard assembly paste to the seat post. DANGER: Never apply grease to carbon parts.

11. Slide the seat post into the seat tube and close the quick release or tighten the seat clamp. The clamp should be tight enough that the seat post will not slip when pressure is applied. Picture 9

Mounting the handlebars

12. Remove the screws from the front plate of the stem. Picture 10

13. Apply assembly paste to the clamp area. Picture 11

14. Make sure there are no kinks in any lines or cables..

15. Now position the handlebar centrally against the stem. Picture 12 Gear cables should run closer to the rider and brake lines further away. Tighten the stem front plate as follows:

Installing of Canyon Aheadset aheadsets

16. Tighten both upper screws (1 and 2) so that the front plate sits flush against the stem body. Picture 13

17. Then tighten the two lower screws (3 and 4) to the recommended torque. The lower end of the front plate does not sit flush against the stem body Picture 13

18. Ensure that the upper screws are also tightened to the recommended torque. Picture 13

Stem & handlebar setups from other manufacturers

19. Tighten the screws in a cross pattern gradually building up to the manufacturer’s recommended torque.

20. The gap between the front plate and the stem body must be even at all points. Picture 14

21. Check if the handlebar is monted correctly: Try to turn the handlebar downwards. The handlebar is mounted correctly if it does not move.

22. Some Mountainbikes have a remote unit for the Reverb Stealth seatpost

Installing Remotes

23. Remove any protective packaging. Picture 15

24. Undo the screw. Picture 16

25. Position the remote to the handlebars.

26. The line from the remote should run on the outside of the brake lines.

27. Once positioned, tighten the screw to 3 Nm. Picture 17

28. Some bikes equipped with SRAM drivetrains you can attach the remote to the brake lever clamp using the Matchmaker system. You can find more information on Matchmaker in the Tech Support Center.

Note: Specific instructions for other component manufacturers (e.g. Renthal) can be found either in the instruction pack delivered with your bike or here in the Tech Support Center.

Inserting the front wheel

Wheels with a 9 mm quick-release

29. The quick-release can be found in the small parts box. Take note of the correct spring position. Picture 18

30. Remove the plastic hub cap Picture 19

31. Insert the quick-release, replace the right-hand spring and then screw on the nut. Picture 20

32. Insert the front wheel into the fork dropouts. The brake rotor should be able to spin smoothly without any rubbing.

33. Make sure the hub is properly positioned in the dropouts.

34. The quick-release lever should always be located on the left side. Close the lever. Picture 21

Wheels with through axle and quick-release systems

35. The through axle can be found in the small parts box. Picture 22 Position the wheel in the fork dropouts and then slide the axle through.

36. Turn the axle to tighten it Picture 23 and then close the quick-release lever so it is positioned against the fork leg. Picture 24

Note: Further information on different through axle systems can be found in the Tech Support Center.

Assembly of pedals and other parts

37. First, apply plenty of grease to the pedal threads.

38. Then insert the pedals by hand. Attention: Pay attention to which direction the pedal needs to be tightened.

39. To properly tighten you require a 15 mm spanner or a 6/8 mm Allen key depending on the model. The pedals can be tightened to 40Nm. Picture 25

40. On certain models you will also need to screw on the Impact Protection Unit at the top of the top tube. Tighten both screws to 2 Nm. Picture 26

First ride setup

41. Before your first ride, check tyre pressure. The recommended tyre pressure is printed on the tyre sidewall. Pump the tyres up accordingly.

42. If your bike has air suspension then pump up the suspension to the correct pressure according to the manufacturer’s guide. Picture 27 Picture 28

43. All-round and all-mountain bike suspension should have enough air in that you can achieve around 20% sag.

44. Enduro and downhill bike suspension should give around 35% sag.

45. Use the O-ring band on your suspension to help set the correct sag.

46. RockShox parts show recommended air pressures.

47. You can then set rebound. This controls the speed your suspension bounces back after compression. Rebound is usually adjusted using a red dial.

48. Set rebound so that the front wheel doesn’t bounce off the ground after compression at the front, and so that the system only compresses and rebounds once when you ride off a curb at the rear.

49. A good way to set saddle height is to make sure your leg is just about straight when you place your heel on the pedal at the bottom of the pedal stroke.

When riding your bike for the first time ensure you are in a quiet, traffic-free area.
