TEMPE, AZ - After decades of winning the world's top races and creating impeccable racing machines, BH Bikes is creating a new future in road racing bicycles. The new BH G5 is the most advanced road frameset ever built.
We were not content to just make it lighter or stiffer. We utilized revolutionary molding techniques, tube shapes and even re-thought the way components attach to the bike. The end result is a frame that is 810 grams, including the integrated seat mast, front and rear derailleur hangers and bottom bracket shell. We achieve this weight while making the bike stiffer and stronger and giving it supreme road manners. The G5 rockets up hills, carves downhills with extreme stability and sprints with authority, all while muting road vibrations.
The G5 is built to be compatible with BB30 cranks or standard cranks with an innovative bearing design. Our aero cable channel makes the G5 stiffer torsionally and also has unique downtube mounts for the Shimano Di2 battery. The 1 1/8" to 1.5" fork adds to the precision and strength of the G5 without adding any weight.
We even considered the smallest items on the frame, giving them huge performance advantages - carbon front derailleur mount, revolutionary dropout design and slotted carbon cable stops all drop weight and add considerable functionality to the G5.
José Luis Arrieta, of the AG2R LaMondiale team was given a prototype in April to give his feedback. After one ride, he wouldn't give it back and raced the prototype in the Dauphiné Libéré.
"The G5 is the absolute vanguard," said Arrieta. "It accelerates better than any bike I have ridden and handles downhill curves with incredible confidence."
The AG2R Team will officially unveil the G5 at the Tour de France.
