Review for GF02 – http://www.cyclist.co.uk/bmc/granfondo-gf02/1087/bmc-granfondo-gf02-review
The BMC Granfondo GF02 Road Bike is built by BMC for the Spring Classics, but the same features that make it perfect on those races smooth out the road ahead of you, no matter where or how long you’re riding. Vertical compliance, stable handling, immediate power transfer and reliability are factors necessary to succeed in the northern races but they’re also on top of the wish list of any recreational rider. Sure, the granfondo reduces the suffering of the pros in Paris Roubaix, the ‘Hell of the North”, but it also enhances the riding experience for us mere mortals.
This bike is a high spec Ultegra model with disc brakes. It has only been ridden 5 times out doors and spent most of its 12 months in my possession as my static indoor training bike. Its a fantastic model in perfect working order. Great on the roads as a Winter Spring training beast, but is also the perfect entry for anyone looking to get into Road Cycling, Cross trail or a bit of both. It has Cross trail wheels and tyres on, which are brilliant in the winter. These can easily be swapped for Sleeker road tyres in the summer.
It’s one of the most comfortable rides I’ve ever owned – only selling because I now have a titanium bike which I rode from lands End to John O’groats – so I just don’t use this one any more.
I bought it ex – display from Evans last year for 1800.
It has one small scratch on it – on the B of BMC – you can see it in the close up picture, it had this when I bought it – hence the price from Evans.. It is not noticeable when riding. The bike has been serviced in the last 6months by Bike Science in bristol.
The Saddle is a very nice Selle Italia Flite saddle – worth 100 on it’s own. It has a Cut out to relieve Pressure during long rides – it’s super effective.
The Wheels are DT Swiss R1900 29 – with Continental Cylce-cross tyres (38). Super Comfy, durable and hardly used.
The Peddles are LOOK – I can take them off or leave them on. It’s up to you.
(The TRACX is not for sale BTW – just happens to be where the bike is right now)
Collection only – will easily fit in a hatchback with the seats down and the front wheel off. I would meet the buyer halfway if they have done the Buy it now deal – Payment by PayPAL only.
