Endurance bikes are undergoing a revolution in performance and aesthetics, and Fuji's long-lived Gran Fondo line is leading the charge. Fuji's Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc road bike takes plentiful cues from its racing cousins while adopting a geometry more conducive to long days in the saddle. For 2018 the Gran Fondo 2.1 features the new Shimano Ultegra groupset, including Ultegra's new hydraulic disc brake, a C5 high-modulus carbon frame with VRTech technology, as well as a full carbon fork also utilizing VRTech vibration dampening technology. This bicycle is fully equipped for the long haul.

The Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc's frame is ready for the big rides. The C5 carbon is made with VRTech, a revolutionary frame design technology that incorporates vibration dampening material into key areas of the bike to improve comfort during long days in the saddle, without impacting the bike's performance. Endurance geometry pairs a compact riding position with a taller-than-usual head tube for maximum comfort, and the full carbon fork also features VRTech technology to add to an already smooth ride. Oversized chainstays and a PF30 bottom bracket shell increase power transfer, making every watt count, and the light, stiff frame is ready to sprint for your city limit sprint. Hidden fender eyelets increase the bike's versatility without sacrificing aesthetics or aerodynamics.

The Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc includes Shimano's brand-new Ultegra 2x11-speed components with its hydraulic disc brake system. You'll enjoy Shimano's renowned shifting precision and reliability as well as the excellent control and modulation delivered by the hydraulic disc brakes. Furthermore, hydraulic discs brake consistently in all weather conditions, a welcome relief on technical descents or for riders who refuse to let bad weather interrupt their training schedule. The drivetrain features an Oval Concepts 500 crank with 50/34T chainrings that is paired with a Shimano 105 11-32T cassette. The wide range of gears is perfect for the endurance rider who loves long climbs and even longer days, providing you with everything you need to get up and over the most challenging terrain.

Fuji rounds out the Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc with Oval Concepts wheels and cockpit. Oval Concepts is Fuji's house brand, but these parts are anything but a compromise. The Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc rolls on Oval Concepts 524 Disc wheels, sporting thru-axles front and rear for enhanced stiffness, wrapped in 700x30 Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires. The more voluminous 700x30 tire size is perfect for smoothing out harsh road surfaces without sacrificing speed. The Gran Fondo is ready for the worst weather, the most challenging terrain, and the roughest roads. Are you?

Fuji Bikes 2018 Gran Fondo 2.1 Disc Road Bike (Satin Storm Silver) (56cm)
Bought my wife this bike for VD to replace her aging 2009 Specialized Roubaix(a fantastic bike). She says it is the most comfortable bike she has ever riden. Besides her Specialized, she has had a 2007 Cannondale Carbon Synapse, and a 2003 Litespeed Ghisallo.
