Founded in 1979 by a welder and a bicycle shop owner, GT Bicycles has been a known name in the American bike scene for over three decades. Known in the eighties for their BMX Pro Freestyle riders, GT still has, to this day, a dominating presence in the BMX market whether it’s BMX bikes or parts or BMX-specific gear. Equally as astounding within GT bike categories are their specialty city bikes and their mountain bikes, from their city/fixie cross called Meatball to their well-known downhill mountain bike line called Fury, GT bikes are full of cool surprises. GT carries kids and women’s bikes that are both appealing and affordable, such as the girl’s or the women’s Laguna.
Offering, city, road, BMX, and mountain bikes, GT has it all when it comes to bicycle models, in addition to having a handful of professional racing teams. With famous riders in the categories of factory racing, mountain bike racing, and three types of BMX racing, GT takes their gear and their racing teams seriously--but not so seriously that they’ll sacrifice some of that playing-in-the-dirt kind of fun. Recognizable by their “triple triangle” frame seen oftentimes in their hard-tail models, GT is an American go-to for everything from a kid’s first street bike to seeking out bikes with unparalleled racing and stunt capabilities.
