Might not be as flashy as many of the bikes on here, but as someone who is just getting into road riding it should do me well.

    Nice!

    However, how can it be a GT without the signature seatstay extensions?

    MTB - On-One Inbred

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    Very nice, I like the colour. Nothing but good things from me on the GT road bikes!

    Cool, used to have a GT mountain bike which was pretty solid. Doesn't matter about the spec, as long as you're enjoying riding it, train hard enough and you'll get faster than some on far flashier bikes anyway.

  • Love the colour scheme, nice looking bike!
  • I was looking for one of these and ended up with a Gt series 2 (2010) at around the same price! Hope you love your bike as much as mine! Im going to upload some more pics of mine soon... Frames are definitely worth upgrading, only problem i had with mine were crappy brake pads which i upgraded straight away as the originals were about as useful as using cottage cheese as pads haha

  • Anyone know what size of bottom bracket is required for a replacement?

    I have a GT Series 4, 2010.
