Not your typical bike on here: I bought this bike last year as my commuter but I am in the process of consolidating the bike into my do it all bike. I also have a Roubiax which I plan to sell if I like the Grade for non commuting duties too. Since the picture I have bought Flypedal platforms for commuting that I can stick onto my Look pedals that are now on the bike. I will soon go all 3T Team Stealth cockpit and post. When the roads clear up the plan is to go tubeless with Schwalbe Pro One in 28c and the fenders are not needed either. All this should help make the bike lighter too. Frame is super comfortable and fun to ride on the crappy roads in New York. Not sure about the weight right now but its not super light. GT says my 56cm frame is 965g and 470g fork I will wait and check overall weight once the fenders come off.

Looks pretty good! Interested to see how you like it for an all around ride. I like how more and more folks are noticing that race bikes are a compromise and are more often looking for a bike to open up more options for comfortable riding of varied terrain.

You hit it right on the nail for me. Race geo does not fit me and love having a bike I can do all kinds of riding on.
