 I've been riding this bike for some months and it has surpassed my expectations!
My biggest concern when buying it was the shapeshifter.
But it is very useful and easy to get used to.
I use the bike on relatively flat single trail, bike parks and rough DH - it does it all.
One downside is when you need to contact canyon - they are slow at everything! I have bought an ekstra shapeshifter gas spring so if I some thing goes wrong I dont need to wait to get at new one. All other components you can buy at normal internet MTB dealers.

This bike is my dream bike!

 Got the 8.0. Felt the shapeshifter a bit gimmicky as it climbs pretty well even in DH mode. But for long fireroad climbs, the short travel mode does prop up the rear a bit more for that forward-biased feel. Over gnarly descents and drops the bike felt very stable and quite forgiving. I run 30% sag both front and rear. The only gripe is on really tight switchback turns, the front end can feel a bit unwieldy to settle into the turn. All in all, a great bike that can be ridden all day, on any terrain.

Canyon Strive CF 9.0 Race (MSRP $4870) — The clue is in the name with the Strive CF 9.0 Race. Fabien Barel came up with the Race Geometry to provide extra stability on descents so you can push it right to the limit. RockShox Pike RCT3 forks house the game-changing Charger Damper and work in perfect harmony with the Monarch Plus RC3 Debon Air rear shock to iron out rocks, ruts and roots. When checking your speed to line up for the next corner, the Sram Guide RSC disc brakes combine heaps of power with a consistent bite point so you always know what to expect. Banging through the gears with the Sram X01 groupset is so crisp and quick, you’ll want to dig even deeper for those extra seconds. Meanwhile, the tubeless ready combo of Sram Rail 50 wheelset with broad 23 mm rims, and fast-rolling Maxxis tyres provide supreme handling precision so you can connect your lines, maintain the flow and keep momentum through fast curves and technical switchbacks. This bike is ready to race. Are you?
