Hi All. Had my first ride on my new GT Grade yesterday and it was awesome! I am used to riding either a full suspension hybrid, or a much harsher 15-year old Cannondale Silk Road, so this bike was a perfect combo of speed and comfort. Granted I don't have a carbon or steel bike to compare against and it was a little harsh in spots. But still, the geometry is relaxed enough to where I could full stretch my back up occasionally, and it felt faster than my Cannondale.
I did about 32 miles which for me is close to a record for a single day. My goal is to get up to 45 by end of the season.
Some pics attached. Other than the Cateye and phone mount, the only thing I added was an extra layer of handlebar tape, a mirror and new Look pedals. Oh, and I added a gel cover to the saddle to protect my delicate butt!
