Take a fine carbon racing bike, tailor it to offer a touch more comfort, and you have Fuji's Gran Fondo 3.0. Fuji's lightweight and efficient C4 carbon and the BB86 bottom bracket and tapered front end are borrowed from their race-bike side. Then they add a compliant rear triangle and less aggressive (more upright) geometry. And the result is a light, fast bike that's a pleasure to ride whether it's for an hour after work or that epic weekend century. Complementing the excellent frame are easy-rolling Oval wheels with grippy Hutchinson tires, a hill-flattening Oval/Shimano 105 compact 20-speed drivetrain and powerful dual-pivot brakes. You'll also love the nice Oval bar, stem and post, and choice Selle Italia seat.
