Pinarello Gan RS Road Frameset - 2016 $4,000.00
A new generation of speed.
Like many of us, you may have spent the past year drooling over the Dogma F8 and dreaming of the day you could clip into a frame with that classic Italian style and industry leading design — all the while lamenting the lack of funds available to cover the hefty price tag. This year, that wish finally comes true, with Pinarello's new Gan line of road bikes that draw heavily on the design and technology found in the Dogma F8. The 2016 Pinarello Gan RS Road Frameset sits at the top of the new Gan line to offer that classic Pinarello feel at a more palatable price point.
The Gan RS features the same eye-catching styling as the Dogma F8, with its signature curves and aerodynamic detailing that make the bike just as stunning as it is fast. The main difference between the two frames is the type of carbon used to make them. While the Dogma F8 boasts the top-end of the top-end Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology, the Gan RS consists of slightly more compliant T900 carbon that sacrifices a tiny bit in the weight and stiffness categories, but drops the overall cost significantly. While this carbon is slightly less rigid than the T110 1K, it is still a high-strength, race-worthy layup designed to ride hard and fast. Make no mistake, the Gan RS is a race-ready machine.
As with the Dogma F8, this frame incorporates Pinarello's trademark asymmetrical design for claimed improvements in power transfer and comfort. The asymmetry in the Gan RS' seatstays is less extreme than in the Dogma F8, resulting in a slightly more compliant and comfortable ride while still providing benefits in handling to keep you feeling solid out on the road. At the top junction of the stays, a wishbone shape serves to provide clean lines and aerodynamic protection to keep the rear brake out of the wind so you don't have to worry about it slowing you down when you don't want it to.
Pinarello incorporates the Flatback technology found in the Dogma F8 into the Gan RS, with its signature oval-front and flattened-back tubing throughout the frame and fork creating an aerodynamic profile that slices cleanly through the wind without any extra materials bogging down the scale. An integrated seat clamp and aero seat post add to the wind-cutting advantage to get you wound up like a pouncing cheetah and on your way to the finish line.
The 2016 Pinarello Gan RS Road Frameset comes complete with carefully engineered internal cable routing compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting systems for an added dose of aerodynamics and crisp, clean lines for any setup. It's finished with a threaded Italian bottom bracket, a trend that we're happy to see resurfacing across the industry. The CNC threads provides a more consistent, solid platform for installation to do away with PressFit models' creak and longevity issues.

can i get it in red/black on a 53?
great bike! All of the benefits of the F8 but a little more affordable for the budget conscious .The kit calculator may not show all available options for a custom build and can be a bit tricky in configuring but if we have it on the site we can build it. Often times we have items not listed on the site as well. If you need help in configuring this bike feel free to contact me direct. I'm always happy to oblige!
