For business or pleasure.

Investing in a bike that you can use for multiple activities is no easy task — after all, there's not yet a bike in existence that can do everything. However, if you're looking for something you can use to commute a few mornings per week then take out to the bike path or your favorite neighborhood loop for a weekend workout, the Grade FB Elite Complete Bike may fit the bill. GT's Grade line was developed to function well in a variety of riding situations, enabling you to get out on your bike as much as possible.

Offering more versatility than a traditional road frame, the Grade Flat Bar Elite was designed with the geometry of a road bike and the adaptability of the off-road options GT is known for, so you can take it almost anywhere. Constructed with a lightweight hydroformed aluminum frame, the Elite uses GT's signature Triple Triangle design, GT's smaller take on the traditional rear triangle that's credited with making its bikes feel snappy and responsive as you accelerate out of intersections or up hills. Rough city streets can be a strain on your hands and shoulders, so GT includes its Grade Carbon fork to help absorb road vibrations and create a smoother ride for you. The moderately relaxed geometry also allows for comfort and keeping an eye on road obstacles without making the bike feel as though it's only suited for cruising.

Whether you're using the Elite to get to work or taking it out to explore new routes, you'll want a drivetrain you can rely on, so GT includes Shimano's accurate, low-maintenance Claris components throughout the bike's build. You'll enjoy an eight-speed triple crank to keep you prepared for a variety of terrain on your daily rides, and — rain or shine — Tektro's mechanical disc brakes will give you the responsiveness you'll want while navigating busy streets. Take advantage of the 160mm rotors and solid Kenda Kwest tires and venture onto gravel or smooth bike paths without sacrificing any control.
