BMC Granfondo GF01 2014 Road Bike Frameset. The Granfondo is built by BMC for the Spring Classics, but the same features that make it perfect on those races, smooth out the road ahead of you, no matter where or how long you're riding. Vertical compliance, stable handling, immediate power transfer and reliability are factors necessary to succeed in the northern races but they're also on top of the wish list of any recreational rider. Sure, the Granfondo reduces the suffering of the pros in Paris Roubaix, the ''Hell of the North'', but it also enhances the riding experience for us mere mortals.
Thanks to the tapered 1-1/8 to 1 1/2-inch steerer tube, oversized down tube, and massive chain stays, the bike corners like it is on rails, going exactly where you pilot it without any fuss or hesitation. Naturally, it converts every ounce of pedal pressure into forward acceleration. The full carbon frame of the GF01 weighs just over 1000g, so the bike is light enough to tackle even the longest and steepest climbs with confidence.
