The weave on the frameset is amaging. I love it.

Fitted a Alpitude Gardena Saddle (69g), Alpitude Supelegera Bottle cages (13g each) and the Alpitude Carbon chain catcher (6g).

Weight comes in a 5.715 kg, this is however using bathroom scales and subtracting my weight from the total, so not the most accurate.

This one has unfortunately been taken of the road after a car hit me on a roundabout, front wheel destroyed and the Alpitude saddle too. Local shop inspected for insurer and wrote it off as Carbon compromised, I have bought it back from the insurer and it now sits on my Turbo. The frame itself didn't take any impact, car hit and went over the front wheel, I hit the road with my mouth/teeth and lost half a front tooth, so bike mostly landed on me.

Is there anywhere that scans frame/fork to see if there is damage?

First time I've seen this thread. What a beautiful bike! And what a shock to see it mangled like this. I'm glad that you're - mostly - ok and I hope that you can get the frame and forks checked out.

Yes, it's a real shame it is a lovely bike and rides really well, I have transferred the Alpitude cages and chain catcher to my Canyon Ultimate. This happened at the end of October last year, I'd really like to get it back on the road, just want to be sure there is no underlying damage, it all looks fine....

Are you in the UK? If so, Carbon Bike Repair are one of a number of options for scanning your frame.

Gave the Bike a proper clean (not been done since the accident in October) definitely some scratches/cracks on the Fork, it's a Columbus Grammy fork, can't seem to find any, obviously discontinued a while ago.

i would recommend an Enve 2,0 fork as a replacement. Not the lightest, but you can choose between three fork rakes (43,46,50), according to your prefences in handling.

Thanks for the recomendation, I have actually dropped this fork off to be repaired by Carbon Bike repair uk (as recommended by @ Bondurant) it was only one area that was an issue.

Unfortunately it appears the frame is cracked from the accident, noticed a bit of flex when looking down at the chain set while Zwifting, it seems it has cracked 1/4 way round where the front derailleur fits on. It's going in for a repair end of this week, a mechainc friend has stripped it all down for me and whilst it is he weighed it for me , comes in at 835g
