GT Bikes GTR Series 5 Bike 2013

The 2013 GT GT-R Series 5 is perfect for someone looking to get into road cycling. It features ultra light, ultra durable hydroformed aluminum tubing and a tapered headtube for increased steering response and stiffness. The stiffness and handling doesn’t even compare to other bikes in its class. This frame is geared more for everyday use, not just race day. The slacker head-tube and seat-tube angles make this bike comfortable for longer rides or short rides around town. The GTR Series 5 also features mounts for mudguards which would make this an awesome commuter bike as well!

This GTR Series 5 is equipped with an 8-speed drivetrain including Shimano derailleurs, FSA compact crankset and microSHIFT Shifters and Tektro brake calipers. The microSHIFT shifters are operated from the outside of the lever removing the need for thumb triggers found on similar grade Shimano shifters. The front and rear derailleur are both Shimano 2300 giving you a nice blend of reliability and affordability. The Series 5 is outfitted with a GT brand seatpost, stem, handlebars and saddle showing off some of their new designs. All this makes for a high quality, light weight aluminum road bike that anyone would enjoy themselves on!

    Comments about GT Bicycles GT Bikes GTR Series 5 Bike 2013:

    This is my first road bike and I wasn't expecting all that much when I saw the heavily discounted price. I looked at some reviews on other sites around the internet, and figured this would be a good value bike for entry into road cycling.

    The components are all pretty good quality. I've been trying to maintain them often, and haven't had any problems in the few months I've owned the bike. Its not super lightweight, but light enough.

    My only complaint is the wheelset is poor. I understand they need to keep cost down though, so that will be something I upgrade in a little while. Other than that, I am happy with the bike!
