Preparation


1. Cut away any external packaging on the Bike Guard using a sharp and short blade. Undo the cardboard tabs to open the top of the Bike Guard.

2. The Bike Guard contains your bike with the rear wheel already inserted. The front wheel is not yet fitted.

3. You will also find your seat post with saddle attached.

4. In addition to a small parts box including wheel quick release.

5. Remove the small parts box. Picture 1

6. This contains the Canyon tool case, other small parts and a quick-start guide for assembling your new bike.

7. Remove the torque wrench and assembly paste from the tool case

8. Pull the bike upwards to remove it from the Bike Guard. Picture 2

9. Remove all components that are strapped to the bike: handlebars, front wheel and seat post. Take care not to damage any parts.


Attaching the handlebars


Instructions for standard stem & handlebar setups

10. Loosen the front plate screws with an Allen key so you can then remove them by hand. Picture 3

11. Apply assembly paste around the clamp area. Picture 4

12. Insert the handlebar centrally.

13. Ensure that none of the cables are too twisted.

14. Now attach the handlebar. Before tightening the screws ensure that the handlebars are central. Picture 5

15. Use your Canyon Torque Wrench to tighten the bolts to the manufacturer’s recommended torque as shown on the component. Proceed as follows:


Canyon stem & handlebar setups


18. Tighten both upper screws (1 and 2) so that the front plate sits flush against the stem body. Picture 6

19. 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 6

20. Ensure that the upper screws are also tightened to the recommended torque. Picture 6 Picture 7


Stem & handlebar setups from other manufacturers


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

17. The gap between the front plate and the stem body must be even at all points. Picture 8


Canyon integrated stem & handlebar setups


21. Remove the stem cap by loosening the screw on top. Apply carbon paste to the fork shaft and the inside of the stem clamp.Picture 9 Picture 10

22. Slide the stem & handlebar onto the fork shaft. Picture 11 Make sure none of the cables are kinked or bent. Then screw the stem cap back on. Picture 12 Do not over-tighten, just 0.5 Nm of torque is necessary to pre-load the bearings.

23. Ensure the bars are central and then tighten the stem clamp bolts to 5 Nm so that the gap between both sides is even. Picture 13

24. Note: Check that the bars are properly secure. If the bars move independently from the fork shaft when force is applied then tighten the clamp bolts to the correct torque as shown.


Inserting the seat post


25. If either the seat post or your frame are carbon then you will need to apply assembly paste. Never apply grease to carbon parts. Picture 14

26. Slide the seat post into the seat tube.

27. Take note of the maximum extension marked on the rear of the seat post. Never exceed this mark.

28. Set your saddle height and then tighten the seat clamp to 5 Nm. Picture 15

29. Check that the seat post does not slip, if this does happen then you can tighten the clamp up to a maximum of 7 Nm.

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

31. Some Canyon models, including the Aeroad CF SLX and Speedmax CF have an integrated seat clamp. Picture 16

32. With these systems it is also essential that you do not exceed the maximum saddle extension.


Inserting the front wheel


33. Remove the protective hub cap. Picture 17

34. First you need to insert the quick-release.

35. You will find the quick-release in the small parts box. Ensure that the springs are correctly positioned when inserting into the hub. Picture 18

36. Then insert the front wheel making sure it is correctly positioned in both dropouts. Picture 19

37. The quick-release lever should be located on the rider’s left side.

38. Tighten the quick-release lever so it sits against the left fork leg.

39. Do up the brake-quick release located on the calliper. Note: If your bike is equipped with disc brakes, never pull on the brake lever when the wheel is not inserted. Brake quick-releases differ depending on manufacturer. Picture 20 Picture 21 Picture 22

40. Test the brakes before riding and check the pad contact points. The break lever should not make contact with the handlebars.


Inserting the pedals


41. First, apply grease to the threads.

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

43. 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 23 After around 100 km of riding you should check the tightness of your pedals again so they do not become loose.

44. Before riding, check tyre pressure and use the values shown on the tyre side walls as a guide. Pump up the tyres to the pressure shown.

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