"Do you like precision? How about low weight and ergonomics? Good, we do too. The Fuji Gran Fondo has made its name for the very ride that it was designed to tackle: the Gran Fondo. Gran Fondos are often long, arduous rides where rider camaraderie and comfort are pivotal to enjoyment. The routes are usually varied in mileage and provide beautiful scenery to riders of all abilities. For such an event, you need a bike that can perform flawlessly, but provide the comfort and handling you need for a long haul. The Fuji Gran Fondo 2.4 Disc road bike is such a bike. Incredible forethought went into its carbon design and production. <p>Using a longer head tube than a traditional race bike, about 10mm on a 55cm frame, the Gran Fondo creates a slightly more upright rider position in order to stave off upper body fatigue on longer rides. The carbon C5 frame and full carbon fork are further refined with a Shimano press fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube.</p> <p>Shimano's 105 11-speed components were the natural choice for the Gran Fondo 2.4 Disc. Gorgeous cosmetic finishes, incredible precision and perfect functionality; it's all here. And, with a compact Shimano crankset matched to a 105 11/28 11-speed cassette, the 2.4 Disc can handle just about any ascent or descent on said epic ride.</p> "
