2017 BH G7 Disc (Large / 58cm)
It is really hard to beat the value here… Dollar for dollar, you’re getting a whole lot of bike! The responsive aero carbon frame has been built with the very consistent and reliable Ultegra components, is rolling on some great DT Swiss wheels, and stops on a dime with the hydraulic disc brakes. Add to this the Easton carbon cockpit and you have one heck of a deal. We brought this bike in to test ride so we could get more acquainted with the bike and its ride qualities, and it passed with flying colors! It has seen about 6 rides, it has been tuned perfectly, and it is now looking for a new home so we can bring in a few more. The MSRP on the bike is $4799, so this is a screaming deal!
Description per BH:
Developed in combination with computerized analysis performed in a wind tunnel and from dynamic fluid tests, the G7 Disc frame is our most innovative frame complete with disc brakes. The rear triangle has been designed to support the force and tension produced by the new Shimano Flat Mount road disc standard. The new design has been completely optimized in the dynamic fluids test that identified the optimal geometry and has allowed creating a much more aerodynamic and innovative transversal section with shorter and thinner asymmetric stays.
THE NATURAL EVOLUTION OF THE G6 PRO
The G7 is the natural evolution of the G6 Pro. The BH Bikes R&D team has developed the G7 Disc based on all the innovations developed for the G6 Pro. The aim of the G7 Disc was to maximize performance, compliance and lateral rigidity of the frame at the same time incorporating disc brakes. It has been developed combining the computer analysis derived from tests performed in wind tunnels and through fluid dynamic testing. The Result – A frame with an innovative aerodynamic silhouette integrating disc brakes and featuring BH’s legendary geometry and ride quality. It incorporates the BB386 bottom bracket proving a large space between the stays and giving the rear triangle high levels of rigidity and sensitivity. The semi-integrated seatpost, full carbon fork and tapered headtube provide an aerodynamic advantage, reduce weight, and add to the ride quality.
OPTIMIZED REAR TRIANGLE
To optimize aerodynamics to maximum levels and based on the G6 Pro frame, the R&D team identified the transversal sections of the frame that had the best fluid dynamics results and strengthen them as much as possible in the new G7 Disc frame. Because the brake is no longer situated in this area the R&D team has been able to find a much more aerodynamic and innovative transversal section.
FLAT MOUNT SHIMANO
The incorporation of a 140 mm disc brake at the front and rear, with Shimano Flat Mount technology has been a fundamental difference in the design of the frame. The rear triangle has been completely redesigned to support the forces and tensions produced by the new anchoring of the disc brakes that are completely different to those produced by conventional brakes.
The G7 Disc was designed looking for an ultralight, rigid, sensitive and reactive frame. The previous design and development of the Ultralight Evo has allowed incorporating a combination of carbon fibers and resins that are the essence of the new generation of BH frames.
SLOPING GEOMETRY, NARROWER, SHORTER AND ASYMMETRIC STAYS
The G7 geometry is the same as the G6 Pro; sloping geometry with a short rear triangle and a semi integrated seat mast that places the center of gravity much lower and allows optimal handling. The narrower, shorter and asymmetric stays and the design of the rear brake has allowed us to achieve a much more sensitive and rigid rear that improves pedaling performance in the climbs.
