Fuji Gran Fondo Classico 2.0 LE Road Bike -- 2017 Performance Exclusive. Go fast and stay comfortable on this Performance limited edition Fuji Gran Fondo 2.0 road bike. The Gran Fondo Classico is designed to be as quick and efficient as a traditional road bike, but offer a more relaxed for comfort and control. The 2.0 LE features Fuji's patented C5 carbon frame, Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components, and durable doublewall aluminum wheels. 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 Gran Fondo frame is made from a high modulus carbon blend. High modulus is an engineering term which defines stiffness in fibers. Therefore, a high modulus frame has a stiffer blend of fibers which results in less flex and better transmission of power spent. Carbon fiber, used for much of its modern life in the aerospace industry, is a valuable high performance product for its lightweight, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion properties. The carbon frame is further refined with a Shimano press fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube. The Grand Fondo Classico 2.0 LE features a lightning fast and lightweight Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain. And, with a compact Oval crankset matched to a Shimano 105 11/28 11-speed cassette, the 1.2 can handle just about any ascent or descent on your epic ride. However, we all know that a wheel set can make or break any ride, no matter its length. The Vera Corsa DPM 27 wheels are dependable and outfitted with Vittoria Zaffiro tires. Add in Oval Concepts handlebar, stem, seat post and saddle, and you have a Gran Fondo capable of leading the way to any weekend adventure.
