GT might be getting its mojo back

12 11 2009

I have to admit, it’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about a GT product. Their bikes, especially their race bikes of the last few years, have been kind of ugly and seem like like yesterday’s news when compared to other bikes.

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across this video explaining the new 2010 GT prototype cruiser. The old ultrabox design is gone in favor of a trick, oval-tubed modern look…this bike looks fast.

And while I don’t think I’ll ever be comfortable riding a bike with non chro-mo forks, I think this frame might pique more than a few racers interest* in the new year.

*Now they just have to take that level of innovation and come out with a 24 that you can take to the trails.

that is pretty cool, although I never liked the color scheme and weird fonts they use for their lettering. overall though, looking alright.

I’m with you, carbon forks scare me. I’ve seen guys at the trails with them, but those guys are smooth!

Did you see the guy who snapped his carbon forks over the berm jump at the Chula Vista SX track? I’ll stick with good ol’ 4130 thank you very much.
