Scoping out the GT Speed Series Pro 24

9 09 2015

GT  really stepped up the looks of their high-end race cruiser, the Speed Series Pro 24, for 2016.

Starting out with a classic white frame, it’s set off by a nice mix of copper ano components…a nice modern touch we’ve seen more recently on the Redline Asset 24.

That being said, the frame is classic in color only. There’s a lot going on beneath that white colorway.

2016 GT Speed Series

We’re talking alloy hydro-formed and butted tubes, internal quick release seat clamp wedge, a CNC/forged quick change dropout system, BB30, and a tapered 1-1/8″-1-1/2″ integrated head tube. Paired with a set of tapered GT Pro Race Forks, this is a nice starting point for a tricked out speed machine.

Geometry-wise, the Speed Series Pro 24 lines up as follows:

  • Top Tube: 21.8″
  • Head Angle: 73 degrees
  • Seat Angle: 70 degrees
  • Bottom Bracket: 11.7″

Kitted out with a mix of GT, ProMax and Alienation components this bike is ready for battle.

The cool colorway, white & copper, initially caught my eye but this bike has a lot more going for it than its good looks…GT has really put some innovative thinking into this bike (especially the frame) and it’s definitely worth a second look.

[…] At GT, the entry-level 24″ Mach One was on display. I was kinda hoping to see the Speed Series Pro 24 in the booth…but alas, they only had the 20″ version. I do dig that copper on white colorway on the Speed Series Pro 24. […]
