Product description

From fresh tarmac switchbacks to gravel roads. The GT Grade Sora is a road bike for any-road adventuring.

Built to take the rough with the smooth, the hydroformed Grade alloy frame is both strong and lightweight. The slightly-more-upright endurance style riding position offers a little extra stability for off-road excursions. Flattened rear stays help to smooth rough roads while the tapered head tube adds front end stiffness for precise steering. Drop tune bars and 32c tyres are ideal for rough road cycling.

The Shimano Sora 2x9 speed drivetrain offers a reliable shifting with a wide range of gears for taking on all the varied gradients on your route. The mechanical disc brakes give you all-weather stopping power when the road points downhill.

Tackle the low-tech roads on the high-tech GT Grade Sora.

Ok firstly, this is a Road Bike foremost, but with off road ability and strength. It is lighter that my Boardman Spec. Edition Sport, despite not having carbon forks. Now, sizing is the main issue with this model. Firstly it is large, I am 180cm with 81cm inseam (5'11", 32") and I have 56cm frame which is same size as my Specialized Specter Sport 58cm. There is also confusion, because there is a 55cm frame. These frames are largely equal in reach and seta height. Where they do vary massively is stack height. This indicates how high the front end will be. So if you want comfort, chose 56, and if you want low racing position, then chose 55cm. I have agonized over the fit of this bike for a few days, but when I decided to keep it and ride it on the road it was great. Its accelerates very well, brakes are as good as any rim brake, but without rim wear. Great summer bike, great winter bike. Read Road.cc and Bikeradar reviews to understand this bike better.
