GT Grade Alloy 105 Gravel Bike - 2017
The secret to the Grade is the frame. Utilizing an updated version of GT's famed triple triangle design, the Grade frame is optimized for on- and off-road adventure. The frame is made with double butted, hydroformed alloy for a lightweight, durable bike. The tapered headtube helps stiffen up the front end, and the standard threaded bottom bracket makes servicing easy. The carbon fiber fork features an aluminum steerer for durability, and has mounts for disc brakes.
Of course, a bike adventure is more fun with excellent components, which is why GT spec'ed the grade with Shimano. The Shimano 105 11-speed shifters are integrated into the brake lever and give you Shimano's legendary Dual Control technology and fabled reliability. Crisp, easy shifting will make quick work of even the steepest hills, with plenty of gears at your disposal.
Completing this excellent bike package is a pair of durable Alex ATD 470 rims with Formula 6-bolt disc brake hubs, premium TRP Hy/Rd mechanically actuated hydarulic disc brakes, and seatpost, saddle, stem and handlebars from GT.
