Peter Nwrote a review of Pinarello Gan 105 Complete Road Bike - 2017 on December 6, 2017
With the Gan, you're getting a lot more than your typical run of the mill entry level carbon bike. It features the same tube shapes as Pina's previous flagship F8, but with a lower modulus carbon. You get the same geometry and fork shape that made the F8 the absolute best descending bike in the business. The 105 11-speed drivetrain is the no-frills workhorse groupset that you can't go wrong with. Along similar lines to the frame, 105 is heavier than Ultegra or Dura Ace, but you're not losing much for the price. So, perfect for an upgrade to entry level carbon, but ultimately a lot higher quality (and cheaper in price) than a comparably equipped Trek Emonda SL5 or Specialized Tarmac Sport. Down the road, I'd recommend upgrading the non-series crank (a bit on the heavy side) and getting some higher quality wheels and tires (always an easy upgrade). There are a million different options you can go with, but you wouldnt go wrong with something like a Hed Ardennes or Mavic Ksyrium paired with Conti GP 4000s or Vittoria Corsa G Plus tires if you wanted to stick with alloy wheels for the best bang-for-the-buck. At this price, the Gan 105 is a no-brainer with a lot more to offer than other bikes in this range.
