It may be “throwback thursday” but the 2017 GT Performer Pro 26 looks much more than just a mere throwback…it’s the classic GT Performer re-imagined as modern-day 26″ cruiser.
Available in blue or white, it features a full cro-mo frame, fork and handlebar.
And while it has been updated with modern touches like 990-style brakes and a threadless headset there are still plenty of retro nods to keep the old schoolers happy.
Such notables include the classic Power Series cranks…
…and the iconic pierced seat tube and platform.
Top it all off with some 8os throwback graphics and you’ve got one cool looking ride.
If I was being nit-picky I would say I kinda wish they would’ve run a caliper brake on the back of the fork …Eddie Fiola-style…to round out the look.
But that’s an easy fix.
Face it, if you’re the old school type that would be interested in the Performer Pro…you’ve probably got an old Dia-Compe MX-1000 kicking around the garage anyway.
All in all, a cool “retro-inspired” bike from GT.
