I don't think manufacturers are able to void warranties as long as the upgrades have a valid purpose which doesn't affect the physical working of the bike eg wider tyres but if you go changing fork and shock lengths they would have a problem. Best to phone them or even have a quick read of the online warranty docs.

Does anyone know if putting a taco guard on my torque would void the waranty? I heard some manufacturers don't want them anywhere near their frames and figured that if canyon don't suply them then there must be a reason

My strive came with a TRS+ chain device which has a taco guard on it so i can't see it being an issue.

I saw an ad recently with Fabien in it which showed him riding 27.5 tyres so I reckon that's what it will be. I'd hope to see a better stiffer rear end with an updated shock tune. I'd also expect to see some X01 on the es9 seeing as how canyon love to have all the newest bits they can get.

Just found this, so thought I'd post a picture of my Torque FRX while I was out at the megavalanche last month!

You've just gotta go balls deep, buddy.

I went with a group of 3 other 'weekend' riders, all of a similar level and yep, it was scary, insane, but it was also brilliant and there are so many people all of differing riding abilities.

Looking back I was right to be scared, but it's amazing, and something I can't wait to do again.

I didn't start my week very well, I lost all my practice days because I chipped my hip bone on the first ride..... So I entered qualy and the race with zero practice and a lot of pain.

DH bike was a bit of a school boy error though :-/

Chipped a hip? Damn :s i think i'd prefer a big bike for the steeper bits and then suffer on the flatter bits
Did you take it down to the 185mm travel seting?

Hi, great forum ,just got a 2013 strive 8 and can't wait to put some miles on it and knock some pounds off me.
Has anyone got any good ideas for which tyres to use? I find The Maxxis tyres that came with the bike
very hard to get going on.
Thanks

I use continental baron 2.3 and rubber queen 2.2 on the rear, both black chilli and tubeless. The black chilli is expensive but worth it, ridiculous amount of grip and very slow wear, perfect combo for Ireland's mixed weather. Don't go wider than 2.2 on the back cause there isn't enough mud clearance! The stock 2.4s that came on mine would completely jam up at the slightest hint of mud.
