Description

Greater than.

The cycling industry is a funny place. It's a world where the Gan 105 Complete Road Bike is considered entry-level in Pinarello's line of racing bikes. Pinarello calls it a "less extreme" version of the Dogma F8; we call it a far more extreme frame than the ones that were ridden to grand tour victory over most of the two decades. The grade of materials, stiffness-boosting layup, and even the Shimano 105 drivetrain spec'd on it are actually equal to or better than what guys like Sastre, Schleck, and Evans were riding during their respective Tour wins. So despite not being the current top of the heap, we think the Gan may be the best bet for the self-sponsored racer and the ambitious recreationalist alike. The way we see it, you can easily double the price of this bike without seeing much improvement in frame construction or drivetrain.

The Gan's frame stacks up so well against far pricier frames because it shares the design philosophy and many of the key structural features that define Pinarello's current super bike, the Dogma F10. The differences are that the frame's asymmetrical elements are slightly more subdued and the material used is of a lower grade—Instead of the Dogma's superlative T11001K carbon fiber, the Gan uses T600. This involves a small weight gain and a slight loss of stiffness, but it still represents a frame that the likes of Contador or Froome would've considered an upgrade during their early careers. There may be some cyclists who are strong and savvy enough to note the difference while hammering up an HC climb, but we suggest that they're few and far between. (We'd also assume that, like Froome, they're not paying for their own machines.)

The Dogma genotype manifests virtually unchanged in the Gan's FlatBack tube shaping, which was originally adapted from the 65.1 Dogma, updated for the F8 and F10, and then trickled down to the Gan line. FlatBack is the result of 70 possible frame configurations and 300 CFD analysis cycles spent finding the most versatile aerodynamic tube shape. A cross-section of FlatBack tubes reveals an ovalized face paired with an abruptly truncated trailing edge. Pinarello claims that this shape manages the detachment of turbulent lamina at multiple yaw angles, reducing the drag effect of dead air in the tubes' wake at the 5 - 20° angles that we typically ride and race in. All of the aerodynamics in the world mean nothing if they only benefit the rider in the wind tunnel, and FlatBack addresses many of the stability and drag issues pure NACA shapes encounter when set loose on the road.

In two final touches that demonstrate Pinarello's dedication to incorporating only the best frame design elements in its racing bikes, the Gan is finished with seamlessly ingegrated internal routing (though it doesn't feature the Dogma's Think2 routing) and a threaded Italian bottom bracket. It's hard to imagine anything but universal accord over the bottom bracket choice, as it eliminates the creaks and imperfect tolerances of the ubiquitous PressFit standard. Carbon manipulation has improved exponentially in the past several years, but it still can't match the precision and reliability of CNC-machining. A bike that feels this good under the pedal stroke should sound, good, too—and by "sound good," we mean nothing but the light whir of a well serviced drivetrain and the hum of tires on tarmac.

  • A race bike that makes Pinarello pedigree affordable
  • Aggressive race geometry proven in sprints and high mountains
  • Asymmetric design sheds grams without compromising efficiency
  • Aerodynamic tubes originally developed in partnership with Jaguar
  • Internal routing for mechanical and electronic drivetrains
  • Threaded bottom bracket provides tighter tolerances than PressFit
  • Shimano 105 remains the go-to for functional reliability
  • Pinarello's luxurious frames make invaluable racing companions

Hi, could be possible to upgrade the crankset to 105?
And the price, please
Thanks in advance

Hey Jose!



This is a build directly from Pinarello, so we can't swap it out for the existing crankset. We can absolutely add a 105 crankset to your order and install it, and ship the stock crankset along with the bike! Take a look at the link below. The 105 crankset is 10% off right now!



Please feel free to reach out to me at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any more questions!

Lowered the price $105 3 days after purchase

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Have not received the bike yet, but just noticed the lowering of the price.. I think I should have called before I purchased it. I have not returned the bike, but had to choose from the familiarity choices.

Hey Scott!

We offer 60 day price protection! I went ahead and took care of that and shot you an email explaining in more detail.

Be sure to reach out to me at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any more questions.

Thanks!

Can you please share the box dimensions for Gan 105 size 51.5?
Thanks

Hey Karthik!



Our bike boxes are 48in x 35in x 12in. Feel free to reach out to me directly at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any more questions.



Thanks!

Unanswered Question

What is the exact weight of a gan 105 size 53 ?

Great Bike for the money

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I rode a Pinarello a few years back when i first got into cycling and was impressed by the overall feel, comfort and overall responsiveness of the bike. I purchased this bike a few weeks ago and i have put in close to 400KM's in it and i am loving everything about it. The 105 group set is solid and more than enough to get going. I would suggest a wheel upgrade which will provide more acceleration and top speed because they fulcrum wheels this bike comes with are a bit on the heavy side. I had a set of Mavic Ksyrium SLS which i put on with the tires it came with and it made a huge difference. Competitive Cyclist did a great job packaging and sending out this bike within an acceptable time frame. However i had to spend a few dollars fine turning the derailleurs at my LBS. If you want to get into the sport without breaking the bank, this is a great bike to get you going.



Thanks, hope this helps.

Great Bike for the money

Hi, could be possible to upgrade this bike to Ultegra? how much it cost?

You could definitely do that, but its a more economical option just to pick up the Gan S Ultegra complete build.

A lot more than an entry carbon bike

    With the Gan, you're getting a lot more than your typical run of the mill entry level carbon bike. It features the same tube shapes as Pina's previous flagship F8, but with a lower modulus carbon. You get the same geometry and fork shape that made the F8 the absolute best descending bike in the business. The 105 11-speed drivetrain is the no-frills workhorse groupset that you can't go wrong with. Along similar lines to the frame, 105 is heavier than Ultegra or Dura Ace, but you're not losing much for the price. So, perfect for an upgrade to entry level carbon, but ultimately a lot higher quality (and cheaper in price) than a comparably equipped Trek Emonda SL5 or Specialized Tarmac Sport. Down the road, I'd recommend upgrading the non-series crank (a bit on the heavy side) and getting some higher quality wheels and tires (always an easy upgrade). There are a million different options you can go with, but you wouldnt go wrong with something like a Hed Ardennes or Mavic Ksyrium paired with Conti GP 4000s or Vittoria Corsa G Plus tires if you wanted to stick with alloy wheels for the best bang-for-the-buck. At this price, the Gan 105 is a no-brainer with a lot more to offer than other bikes in this range.
