Canyon Aeroad vs Ultimate vs Endurace DATA

I wanted to create a video for my BIKOTIC Youtube channel comparing the Canyon 2018 Aeroad, the Canyon 2018 Ultimate and the Canyon 2018 Endurace. At first glance these 3 bikes are very similar, however each has been designed with a specific task in mind, even though there is a lot of functional crossover between them.

The Canyon 2018 Aeroad has Trident 2.0 tube profiles and deep section wheels designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, the compromise here is the extra carbon to make the aero shapes is heavier. The Canyon 2018 Ultimate is designed to be the ultra lightweight, grand tour winning racer. The Canyon 2018 Endurace is designed for normal people that might want to do a 100 mile sportive and not have a bad back at the end!

As I began my research I was immediately presented with a problem - these 3 models combined represented in the region of 70 different bike builds that Canyon offer on their website. This is when I decided I needed away to filter the bikes to narrow down which builds I would show in my video. To that end I created the BIKOTIC BIKE VALUE CALCULATOR (BBV), which you can try out here: BIKOTIC BIKE VALUE CALCULATOR

The idea was to determine the value of each bike by entering some variables, run an algorithm that would score it and put all 70 bikes into a list, in order of their calculated value. Well, of course the problem is the variables that define a bike. In my mind they look like this: PRICE, WEIGHT, PERFORMANCE/HANDLING, AERODYNAMICS, COMFORT, LOOKS.... And that there is why there are so many companies making bikes, because so much of how we value our bikes is personal, done on feel or completely unknown.

Anyway, not to be beaten I created an algorithm that worked on the 2 variables I could get from Canyon's website, price and weight - a big shout out to Canyon here for being honest and listing the weight of their bikes, most manufacturers don't, amazingly! The irony of buying a performance bicycle is you tend to pay more for less (weight) - so the algorithm looks at the relationship between the price and the weight, scoring more favourably the lower the weight in relation to it's price.

So without further ado here is the data I was able to grab off the Canyon website. There are 2 tables, the first table is all the 2018 Canyon Aeroad, Ultimate and Endurace builds not including women specific, which make up the second table. Each bike was run through the BIKOTIC BIKE VALUE CALCULATOR and assigned a BBV score. The tables were then sorted according to their BBV score. (*Note: I am not suggesting you go entirely by the BBV score to choose your next Canyon bike - but it's as good a place to start as any IMHO!).
