    ^^^^

    GT has 3x10, the other 3x8. I'd take the GT on JUST that but there's other stuff too.

    the pedals will probably suck. i have these, love them, esp for the price ($20). no bearings to mess with, theyre light, comfy, solid and grip good. ive had mine for like 2 years. theyre all beat up but perform like new
