Comments about GT 2010 GT GTR Series 1 Road Bike - U.S. Exclusive:

Purchased this to replace my 1987 Schwinn Super Sport which had served me extremely well for 24 years. Wow, what a difference. The Ultegra STI shifters are very smooth. The brakes are okay and the tires could be better but that is an easy fix.

Comments about GT 2010 GT GTR Series 1 Road Bike - U.S. Exclusive:

I bought this is a second bike (for [$] at Performance 10% sale) to be used for commuting, some shorter training rides and primarily to swap components (my racing bike still has old 9-speed Shimano). This bike has basically complete Ultegra groupset (minus brakes), and it is an incredible deal - just groupset and wheels are worth $1,250, so you essentially get the frame, handlebar/stem, tires, seatpost and saddle for "free" - and all decent selection of components too. Wheels, seatpost and stem, while certainly not top end, are actually very, very decent quality - much better than most components found on Shimano 105 or SRAM Rival/Apex equipped bikes in $1500-2000 price range. Perhaps not for racing enthusiasts or weight weenies, but the components and frame will handle every day riding exceptionally well.The bike (as sold - no pedals or bottle cages) is fairly light (18.0 lbs) and is quite stiff. The aluminum gives off a bit of road chatter, despite carbon seatstays and fork, but it's not too bad. The geometry is fairly decent, head-tube is short and one can get really low and aero in this bike. The frame is also quite a bit stiffer than I expected - overall an excellent bike for everyday riding and training. Considering the price, and Ultegra components, Mavic Aksium Race Wheels, Ritchey Carbon seatpost, Ritchey Logic Pro handlebar and stem, it is a steal!Cons: The frame colors are a bit ugly for my taste, GT has little or no name recognition, and aluminum/carbon bikes are going extinct since low-grade carbon is getting less and less expensive (perhaps this is why you can get such an amazing deal). The frame rides more quiet than most alumninum frames (thanks to carbon seat-stays and carbon fork, as well as seatpost), but it is still noisier than carbon or steel. Summary: Overall, for the price/performance combination, this is a perfect bike - much better than most bikes in $1,300-$2,000 range where components are typically considerably cheaper. However, more serious riders may consider carbon frame equipped bikes in next price bracket, $2,500-3,500.

Comments about GT 2010 GT GTR Series 1 Road Bike - U.S. Exclusive:

after doing a lot of research online and visiting local bike shops I chose the GT. With the ultegra components it was a better deal than spending the same money for 105 components that were offered on other bikes similar in price.This is my first road bike.Wow what a difference in ride and performance from the GT mountaim bike that I purchased 15 years ago.I love this bike
