It's interesting that you think that step through bikes are for people who choose pink.  What about the Rapha wearing cyclists who can't lift a foot higher than their arse?

Sorry I should have mentioned, the rear lighting is on both seatstays. Re racks: I think this is very much a lightweight 'sport' townbike rather than a commuter, hence the lack of mounts or storage options. Canyon told us they are now distinguishing this as a separate category, apparently there's a demand for high-end city bikes that are just super light and not so much for utility riding/carrying stuff.

Town bikes?  without racks?  It looks like the front light is integrated, but is there a rear light?

Is there much room forr ajustment or bike fit on that bars/stem combo. The pic seems to show it fixed and no spacers. You do seem some who like the utch style sitting very upright with huge headtubes

If I had a need for a city  ebike this I would seriousy like to consider

unusual that they have shown the dutch bike in Blue and the Cross Bar in Pink. A reversal of trditional bike marketing.

Meanwhile some of the industry still think "make it pink" is how you market to the female buyers

12kg-ish is also stupidly light for a city ebike - its pretty good by non-ebike city bike standards too as they tend to be made out of old gas pipe.

Interesting that they are mixing GRX and flatbars.  Presumably with the RS700 flat bar trigger shifters, and mtb sourced brake levers
