The BMC Granfondo GF01 Ultegra 2014 Road Bike is confidence Inspiring: 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.
Vertical Compliance: Our Tuned Compliance Concept is enhanced with our Angle Compliance System to add lots of vertical give thanks to the cantilevered rear dropouts and pre-flexed, flattened seat stays--take a look at the curve by the rear brake--and the added rake on the fork. Our proprietary seat post, which is designed to flex in response to upwards force, is also part of the compliance system. Designed around and specified with 28 mm tires this bike lets you tackle the roughest roads with remarkable ease. Ease of use: With the integrated chain catcher, durable tires, and hassle-free components this bike will take you for thousands of kilometres without interruptions. Spend less time in the workshop, more on your bike! Ergonomics: The endurance geometry has been optimized for riding long distances on rough roads. This means the bike is very stable, with a greater bottom bracket drop and slightly more laid-back head tube angle. Carefully selected cockpit components and saddle take the sting out of the road and make sure you come back from the ride with a smile on your face to enjoy the rest of the day. Future-Proof: With our DTi (dual transmission integration), the granfondo GF01 offers clean cable routing for both Di2 and mechanical drivetrains. You want to upgrade your bike to the latest drivetrain technology? No problem with DTi. Race Ready: Planning to compete in a race? The frameset is fully UCI approved, so the commissaries will not hold you back.
