    The "it" frame.

    Spending years hunched over a road bike, pedaling exclusively on smooth shoulders and predictable tarmac, isn't a bad way to ride, but broadening your horizons has become easier than ever with the advent of gravel frames and endurance geometry. GT took features from willowy road frames and blended them with its proven expertise in the mountain discipline to create the Grade Carbon 105 Complete Road Bike, designed to excel on gravel and rough roads while retaining the spirit of a road bike. Grab it now to explore the side roads and bike paths you've been missing out on with your twitchy race frame, while enjoying the consistency of a Shimano 105 drivetrain.

    Glass-reinforced carbon comprises the Grade Carbon's frame and fork, giving it the ability to dampen road vibrations while remaining lightweight and responsive. GT also shaped the frame to follow endurance geometry, orienting you in a more upright position in the saddle than traditional racing frames for less back and shoulder strain during long days or fondos. Comfort doesn't come at the expense of handling, however, with the Grade Carbon still employing a snappy rear triangle to keep it accelerating quickly when you need it to.

    The theme of responsiveness extends to the drivetrain and brakes as well, with a rarely-seen full Shimano 105 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes that will stop dependably on the days you end up on rain-slicked roads or muddy bike paths. Plus, you'll be able to roll confidently off-road with Stan's NoTube's Grail Disc hoops paired with capable 28mm Continental Grand Sport Race tires with the added reassurance of tubeless traction and grip.

    In between dirt sessions.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is my first road bike since 1990. I was looking for a bike that could double as a Cross bike. I looked at the Ridley Xtrail, Salsa, and a Canondale. The GT ticked most boxes and when CC dropped prices the Carbon 105 made perfect sense. I ordered a 53cm frame. I'm about 5'7". First impressions, clean lines, lighter than I expected 19lbs to feel. The 105 shifters are buttery smooth and after 200 miles of dirt and Tarmac they still remain that way. The Stan's wheelset started making a wierd sound the first evening. After some quick Googling I found it to be a common problem with an internal piece used during welding. Not much to do about it. I cannot say anything good about the saddle other than ouch. I have using a LBS seat demo program to find a replacement. I swapped out the front 36 chainring for a 34 for climbing, added a set of Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc wheels and changed the stem length. I have been really happy with the ride feel of the bike both on and off road. I am scheduled for a real fitting session in 2 weeks to dial in a working position.

    Grail rims

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Spokes break, had to rebuild rear wheel with triple butted 3mm spokes.

    Rims rattle. Fixed through tire glue. Weird.

    Front rim split whilst fitting tire (was using plastic levers). 25 years riding, this is the first time this has happened.

    I weigh 70kg on a 58 frame. Had bike only 6 months.

    Grail rims

    I have been considering the Grade 105 Carbon for a while as a do-it-all bike, but there seems to be a growing amount of negative reviews for these Grail rims. Sucks to see you having issues with these as well.

    Can you comment on the warranty process and whether or not the rims were taken care of?

    Please send me the GT Grade bike weight.

    Unanswered Question

    Hi there, I have received my gt grade. All is well except the handing in the brakes is not Australian. Ie the front brake is on the left not the right side. My concern is under a reflex breaking situation, i will initiate the back brake instead of the front.
    Would you be happy for me to have this changed at a local bike shop, and charge this back to you?
