I doubt they'll swap to lower end components and charge you a much lower price though.. Tay Cycle/Junction brings in GT, maybe you can give them a call.

give lnt at tampines a call, i think i saw some GT's there also. Joo chait, got 1 shop selling gt bikes , but prices i not so sure.

well for the internet specs, some times what specs that singapore GT has is slightly different. for instance the 06 version, the gave DEORE instead of the LX stated at GT website. best is to ask LBS. hope this helps. Crashed my bike a few times, still not a dENt.

LOL am still learning.. Diff websites probably have diff specs as the manufacturer specs have diff parts installed on their bikes for diff parts of the world.

You'd probably be safe with a Dart 3, both are basic forks, but I'd prefer a Rock Shox over a Suntour anytime.
