It is simple to assemble your Canyon bicycle. If you follow the instructions below, your bike will be ready to go within a couple of minutes.
1. Cut through the adhesive tape very carefully using a sharp knife or a pair of scissors. Be careful not to damage the BikeGuard.
2. Now you can pull the straps out of the slits and open the BikeGuard.
3. With every Canyon bicycle you receive a torque wrench. This wrench is placed on top of the pillar in the middle of the BikeGuard box. Take the wrench out of the box and keep it in a safe place. Now you can remove the seat pillar from the box.
4. In the rear part of the box you can find the seatpost fitted to the saddle. Take both items out of the BikeGuard. Picture 1
5. Now you can remove the front wheel from the box. Picture 2
6. Remove the rear wheel now. It is easier to remove if you push the sides of the BikeGuard apart. Please take extra care not to scratch the bike frame while you are taking the rear wheel out of the box.
7. Remove the frame from the box.
8. Position the bike in such a way that the fork is hanging out of the BikeGuard as shown. Picture 3
9. Remove the foil from the handlebar. Please be very careful not to damage the cables attached to the handlebar.
10. Remove the front plate using a standard wrench, not a torque wrench.
11. Assemble the handlebar to the stem. Place the bar symmetrically to the stem. You need to tighten the screws with the correct torque. The correct torque is printed on the stem. Picture 4 Tighten the screws using a torque wrench. Picture 5 Tighten each screw crosswise. Tighten each screw three times.
The slits between stem and front plate should have the same distance, both on top and on the bottom of the front plate.
12. Pull the plastic caps from the axles of both wheels. Picture 6
13. Now you can assemble the quick releases to the front wheel. The springs need to be placed correctly on the rods. Picture 7
14. Assemble the front wheel now. The wheel needs to be placed in the very centre of the dropouts. Picture 8 First turn the fixing screw and then you close the quick release lever. This lever should point backwards.
15. Now remove the foil from the chain stay. Use a pair of scissors and take extra care not to scratch the frame while cutting the foil.
17. Assemble the rear wheel now. Pull the cage of the rear derailleur backwards. The chain should be placed on the smallest sprocket. Picture 11
18. Close the brake releases on both brakes.
19. You can now fit the seatpost. Lighly lubricate the seatpost if both seatpost and frame are aluminium, except for dropper seatposts such as the Rock Shox Reverb. CAUTION: for Rock Shox Reverb seatposts you must only ever use friction paste and never grease. Apply a little friction paste to the inside of the seat tube and to the relevant surface of the seatpost.
CAUTION: only ever use carbon assembly paste and never grease if the seatpost, the frame, or both, are carbon. Apply a little carbon assembly paste to the inside of the seat tube and to the relevant surface of the seatpost.
CAUTION: always insert the seatpost into the frame at least as far as its minimum insertion length. The seatpost is marked accordingly to help you with this.
20. Assemble the pedals (not included). Apply grease to the thread. Use a 15mm jaw wrench, a pedal wrench or an Allen key to tighten the pedal. Picture 13 Attention: Mind the rotation direction of the threads when mounting the pedals.
21. Check the air pressure in both tyres. You find the suggested air pressure for Continental road race tyres here: Picture 14
Ensure that all screws and bolts are tightened to the correct torque. The correct torque is indicated on the component itself, in the bike manual provided with your new bike, or here in the Technical Support Center.
