Beautiful wheels Eisen! :grin2:

What about the tyres?
are they the same size of the stock?

it seems they are little bit different from the stock ones.
I read Avon Cobra Chrome.
which is the difference?

thanks

Going to fit them tomorrow, but just for info the rear wheel and tyre as delivered weighs in at 14.7kg or 32.4lbs.
And the front is 11.4kg or 25.1lbs.

I’ll weigh the stock wheels like for like when I remove them:nerd::smile2:

The new rims are Enoch’s. And I agree they are beauties !!! I like the daggers around the center, too. The attention to detail is amazing.

I am however using the Avon Chromes. They are the evolution of the OEM standard Cobra tires. They feel good, but usually new tires do. So the real test will be once they have some mileage on them and how much grip they give towards the middle/end of their life.
So far, I’m liking them but have done less than 500km with them - so early days.

Nice!! Doesn’t help that Adrian is down the street from me. I’m trying to hold out until I need new tyres.

How much was the shipping, roughly? And did you get stung for import duty?
Canyon shipped them to a warehouse in Nashua.

I then had them shipped from there to here which cost £288.... there will be duty to pay..

Job done

Haven’t had a chance to ride it yet, but weight saving is 3.1kgs at the front, and 0.4kg at the rear..

Rear tyre looks fatter even though it’s the same size as the original... probably down to the wider rim altering the shape a bit..:nerd:
