Canyon released their new Grails to the audience yesterday. I went to the factory open day back in September, and there I saw some of them on the assembly line, so I knew what to expect, but was told...

My favorite accessory for rides with big swings in temperature is a rack or bag with room for layers that I'll peel off as it warms or carry to add as it cools off.

With temperatures that change a lot I like wearing layers and bringing a bar bag to stash those layers. Cargo bibs help with layer storage as well.

Nobody's mentioned an undershirt yet, so I will.

I've done several rides that start in the 30s and end anywhere from the 50s to the 100s. If it's below 55 at the start, I'll wear an undershirt.

Sounds like you are just getting started. Everyone's butt hurts until it gets used to sitting on a hard saddle for hours at a time.

It should be fine but I'd go with at least 28/32mm tyres. The Grail was designed around 40mm tyres. Make sure you get a matching cassette, thru axles, and rotors.
