    All roads.

    If your ride of choice includes all manner of pavement, gravel, and smooth fire roads winding lonesomely through the hills, then the 2016 GT Grade Carbon Frameset might be just the bike you're looking form. Keeping in line with its long-time passion for taking the path less traveled, GT created the Grade to comfortably handle all manner of road surface with its Triple Triangle Design and vibration-dampening prowess.

    GT introduced its iconic Triple Triangle design over two decades ago and has yet to see a need to replace it. Its simple, efficient design is constructed using GT's Dual Fiber Dynamic tech — carbon with integrated glass fibers for increased responsiveness. The sharper seat stay angle disperses road noise and bumps through the frame. It also allows GT space to reinforce the slim, flattened seat stays, which are constructed out of fiberglass cores wrapped in carbon to give them the right mix of vertical compliance and lateral stiffness. The wide down tube offers more rigidity and better energy transfer, while the slack head tube angle adds steering stability across gravel and comfort during all-day endurance road rides.

    GT fashions the Grade's full carbon fork with longer, narrower blades than a traditional road bike, creating extra clearance for the front tire and better compliance over bumps. You'll remain stable on fast descents with the tapered head tube and retain efficient power transfer as you pedal out of the saddle over dirt, gravel, or tarmac.

    Answered question re: tire size

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I would think that 40mm tires would fit just fine. Really all I can tell you is that there’s over a centimeter of space between sidewalls of the 32s I have mounted and the chainstays (see photo). More than enough space up to the seatpost. I have next to no experience with wider tires, especially ‘knobbies’. So there’s my disclaimer!

    Incredible Performer.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I’ve always known GT made a great road frame after seeing Andre Tchmil chew up the peloton on one in the late 90s. Finally grabbed one; I’m so glad I did. I ride almost solely on asphalt, but I have a couple of bikes that I use for nasty northern Michigan winters/early springtime, and for the occasional trail ride: a Ridley Excalibur, Wilier Cross, and now this GT, which may be my favorite. I got it via the Backcountry ‘site; same as CC, I guess? I prefer a stiff bike with aggressive geometry, ‘slammed’ head tube, a 53-39, and light weight. This GT is about as close as I’ve come to duplicating my road bikes, at least in regard to stiffness and power transfer. But it can also forge through snow/slush, through mud, and over ice with ease. It truly is an impressive machine. FAST and responsive— even tad twitchy, but I love that. It even climbs like a decent road bike should. And it is absolutely gorgeous. The seatstays are a work of art, as is the color scheme. Too cool, especially rounded-out with perfectly matching Cinelli tape in midnight blue. It’s easy to build up, as well: 6800 all around, with TRP Spyre mechanical brakes and Stan’s Grail wheels/Clement Xplor 32mm; 3T cockpit. About 18 lbs. I had some concerns about using an adapter, mating the PF30 BB shell with the threaded Ultegra. 300 km so far; no pops, ticks, etc. I also wondered about running cable and housing along the entire length of the bicycle. Too much resistance sapping braking/shifting response? Doesn’t seem to be much of a problem. It seemed a bit odd, having to zip-tie them to eyelets/brackets along the downtube and stays. Maybe that’s par for the course with some cross/gravel bikes. In any case, it keeps the crud out and will make replacement, if necessary, pretty easy. I cannot recommend this frame highly enough. I can’t believe it’s still available.

    Hell of a gravel bike

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is truly a great gravel bike for the money, no matter which group you choose. I actually have this bike with a SRAM Force groupset . It works as well on the road as it does on gravel. Will only accept 38 mm as the biggest tire. the only gripe is the quick release skewer used on the rear wheel instead of a thru-axle, so it has a tendency to move after a few hard miles on gravel. But other than that, a great rig.

    Is there any difference between that frameset and frameset in this bike ?
