Pinarello Gan K Disc Ultegra Complete Road Bike - 2017
Price - $2,675.00

Though its innovative climbing frames have now spent dozens of years at the top of the GT leaderboard, Pinarello's endurance machines have received no less R&D attention. The Gan K Disc Ultegra Complete Road Bike proves this point by also proving that the venerable Italian firm has no interest in leaving the long distance cyclist in the lurch.

The endurance aspect is apparent in the frame's all-terrain geometry and the inclusion of hydraulic disc brakes.

When these attributes are combined, the result is a bike that loves to go fast all day. Though it's a stiff beast, the Gan K's as focused on comfort as it is on efficiency, a fact that manifests in its geometry.

Compared to the Gan S, the Gan K has slacker seat and head tubes, longer chainstays, comfort-oriented FlexStay seatstays, a shorter reach, and a taller stack.

The Gan S is largely modeled on the Dogma F8, so it's a race bike, through-and-through; the changes to the Gan K mean it's less of an unforgiving missile and more of smooth rouleur, a bike built for laying down miles of tempo across rolling terrain rather than punching the afterburners out of every corner and into every ascent. The Gan K doesn't twitch violently at every rider input; rather, it flows through corners and across rough roads, holding lines as though it's self-guided.

Evil Bikes The Following MB Mountain Bike Frame - 2018

Evil Bikes describes the new Following Mountain Bike Frame as "same same but different." That's not a typo. Bottom bracket and angles remain the same. Evil made the conscious effort not to slacken or lower the geometry since the bike's angles are so universally accepted.
