GT GTR Series 4 review

GT GTR Series 4
Cycling Weekly Verdict

As a complete package, the GTR Series 4 is a fine-looking option. It's only a small thing, but I have to say the white metallic sparkle finish used here is fantastic. So as a first road bike, in many ways it appears very tempting and you could have a lot of enjoyment from it. It's just that I think there are better - and better value - options available.

Like most US bike brands, GT Bicycles is best known for its mountain bikes. That said, the firm's origins actually lie in BMX racing.

Nowadays it has developed into one of those companies that supplies pedal-powered machines for everyone, from young children to carbon fetishists. The GTR Series 4 sits squarely in its Road Performance range, meaning it's designed for the relatively novice-level road rider.
