BIKE OF THE WEEK: FAVALORO GX CARBON

Handmade Italian craftsmanship

The Favaloro GX Carbon is the newest offering from Italian frame builder Michele Favaloro.  The frameset is 100% Hand made in Italy with custom size ONLY. You can have it built for electric or mechanical drivetrains, ours is built around the mechanical Campy Ekar group.

The Camy Ekar 1×13 drivetrain on the Favaloro GX Carbon offers great range. We have a 38T chainring matched to the 9-42t 13-speed cassette.

The carbon frame uses round oversize tubes and the cables and hoses are all routed internally thanks to the FSA ARC system. There is room for 45mm tires on 700c wheels. Ours has a press-fit BB30 bottom bracket. They all come with Syntace X12 thru-axle dropout and flat mount disc brake compatibility.

Our build with Campagnolo Ekar 1×13 gruppo, Campagnolo Shamal wheelset, FSA ACR integrated handlebar/stem and Selle SMP Dynamic saddle will set you back $7990. The frame kit is $3900 and since they are all custom there are plenty of options so you can make it your own.

The Favaloro GX Carbon frames are handmade and they are all custom geometry, ours is essentially a 55cm.
