BH has just recently released thorough information on their 2010 G5, the revamped version of their previous G4. At first glance, I found myself stuttering because for one, I am a huge fanatic of BH and two, it is sweeeeet! From looks to performance this bike brings the heat.
The new frame is right around 800 grams and lateral BB stiffness was increased by 100% from the G4!
