If you're the type of rider who throws some gels in his pocket, fills two water bottles, and heads out for a weekly metric century, you're the type of rider who will understand the excellence of the Fuji Gran Fondo 1.1 Dura Ace.</p> <p>Carbon is the natural choice for long rides because it's lightweight and strong, with just enough flex to reduce fatigue. The Gran Fondo 1.1 is made from Fuji's proprietary C10 ultra- high modulus carbon blend. High modulus carbon means a stiffer blend of fibers, which results in less flex and better transmission of power spent. In a Gran Fondo bike you want comfort without sacrificing performance. Fuji accomplishes this by giving you a slightly taller head tube along with a slightly relaxed geometry including longer, asymmetrical chainstays so you're more upright and stable. You might argue that you're less aero in this position, but really even the pros can stay aero for only so long. We mortals aren't built that way. A Praxis conversion bottom bracket is rock solid and creates a very stiff pedaling area. The larger press fit design also allows Fuji to move the frame material around, thinning out the seat stays and strengthening the chain stays, which puts the carbon where it matters to you most. Double water bottle mounts are there for your longer rides, which, with this bike, will become a staple of your cycling regimen.</p> <p>The Fuji Gran Fondo 1.1 carries the highest quality components. Shimano Dura Ace group sets are renowned for their quality, lightness, and precision. It's simply the best out there and the Gran Fondo is loaded with Dura Ace throughout. The shifting is so effortless you'll swear your derailleurs can read your mind, and the Shimano R-805 disc brakes won't fade and will stop you in a hurry when that notorious group rider swerves in front of you.</p> <p>The high-end Oval Concepts saddle is designed for comfort on a long ride while still keeping the weight down, and the full carbon Oval handlebars are strong and nimble over the monococque carbon fork. You can pick your way through the pack and sprint for home on the Oval disc clinchers with the Vittoria Rubino Pro 700x 25 tires, which have a low rolling resistance so that every watt you put out moves you forward.</p> <p>Simply stated, the Fuji Gran Fondo 1.1 Dura Ace is a bike designed to go fast for a long time and leave you ready for another ride the next day. Not every bike can say that.</p>
