Take a fine carbon racing bike, tailor it to offer a touch more comfort, and you have Fuji's Gran Fondo 4.0. 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. The components are like-minded, with easy-rolling Alex wheels, a compact FSA/Shimano 20-speed drivetrain that lets you conquer the climbs, nice dual-pivot stoppers for speed control and a host of quality Oval Concepts components including a sweet seat.
