How do these Gran, er Grand - Sport, er Sports , compare to a Super Course ride-wise? I would imagine very similar with an equally decent set of wheels.
I've measured the frame angles of both models of 23" bikes at 73-degree seat tube with a slack 71-degree head tube.
Off-road geometry in other words, outright "gravel" bikes. Also great for winding your way down from the mountains at speed.
And I definitely select a larger frame size with these, versus modern bikes (or even versus other vintage bikes having more-upright steering geometry).
