I don't mind it, I mean it's nowhere near as offensive as the 'graphical styling' paintwork that adorns Merida, Giant, Trek, et al.
How did you get yours? Via NZ or a drop shipper or have you found the magical hidden "Australian Canyon order page" on their website?

Nice looking bike Kin.
I don't see how it can be nearly 600g lighter than GeoffInBrisbane's Tarmac SL3 while also using those Zipp wheels. Your frame is lighter, but as far as I can see, the other items are comparable and the wheels are heavier. Do you have some secret light components (AX Lightness handlebars or something) to make up the difference?
My bike is over 6.8 and I know I could lose a few hundred with a Red group set instead of Ultegra, but everything else on my bike is very light.

My bike has bottom rung Shimano pedals on it, I could save a little by swapping them out for some carbon pedals. Other than that, I'm not sure there is much to be saved without either going to tubs or spending insane money on super light clinchers. As a matter of curiosity I'll list the build on mine, so people can suggest how the build could be improved in terms of weight:
Frame - S-Works Tarmac SL3
Wheels - Mavic R-Sys SL
Tyres - Continental GP4000S/SII (23C)
Groupset - Red 22 / BB30 / Compact
Seatpost - S-Works carbon
Saddle - Specialized Romin Pro carbon rails
Stem - 3T ARX Pro
Bars - S-Works carbon
Bartape - Zipp Road Service Corse
Pedals - Shimano SPD-SL (R540) - nearly as heavy as a set of Garmin Vectors, but a whole lot less cool
Cages - Elite Carbon (x2)
As Jason says, the frame is only a 54 (if he thinks 54 is a small frame, he should see my mate's SL4), but on the other hand my back is so messed up that I have an uncut steerer on the fork and enough spacers to match, which probably makes up for it. Oh, and since I weighed it I removed the Garmin GSC-10 - saves a whole 25g!
I'd love a sub 6kg bike. One day. Still drooling over the sub 5kg Litespeed. Can I borrow that for a Coot Tha run, Lannes?
