Hi guys,

I have decided to buy a GT GTR series 3 as my first road bike. I can get the 2011 or 2012 model for the same price which is £600

I really love the colour scheme of the 2011 model, however i don't want to shoot myself in the foot by choosing the 2011 over the 2012 purely because of the colour.

Is there much of a difference in the specifications of the 2011 model compared to the 2012 model? What would you suggest? Thanks!

    I've no experience of GT bikes, but the bikelist.co.uk shows the specs of both models. They look pretty similar although the 2012 appears to have a 10 speed cassette, compared to the 2011 which has 9.

    If that isn't an issue, go with whichever you like the look of best!

    I'd go with the 2012 for the 10 speed. Choosing by colour would simply reinforce he stereotype ;)
