GT Becomes a "Stand-alone Business" as it Returns to Southern California

After 15 years GT Bicycles has brought its corporate headquarters back to southern California.

With the new Californian headquarters, GT says it "is once again a stand-alone business, marking another pivotal movement in alignment with the brand’s new direction." While GT appears to have been given more control over its future it still appears to remain a brand under PON Holdings.

As part of the changes at GT, the brand has assembled leadership and sales teams and aims to focus on products and choices that GT says reflect the "authentic nature of the cultures that we are part of."

bigquotesWe have been making every effort to return GT to the spirit in which it was founded. So in addition to the Leadership and Sales teams that have been assembled, we are stoked to be returning the brand to its original home where we were lucky enough to be greeted by the OG’s of the brand and their families. Going forward, GT’s focus will be on products and business decisions that honor the authentic nature of the cultures that we are part of. Many more good things to come but most importantly GT is starting to feel like GT again! Jason Schiers, Managing Director – GT Bicycles

 @suspended-flesh: I had a Raleigh m80. 26" x 3.0" gazzaloddi in the front 24"x 3.0" gazzaloddi in the back. Would love my stolen yellow Raleigh m80 to return as the thief riding it off the cliff spontaneously catches fire

 GT will always have a special place in my heart. A '98 (I think) Avalanche was the first new bike I ever bought for myself. I beat the crap out of that thing. Then my little brother and our cousin beat on it some more. I still have have it fully restored with the original Bomber Z1 and a new 7spd road cassette as my around town cruiser. The thing is unstoppable. Always wanting a Zaskar, I was able to get myself one of the 25th anniversary carbon models which is an amazing do it all hard tailgate that has lasted longer than other bikes I've had in that same time span. It's just a fun bike to ride.
I'm excited to see what this brings for the company.

 Ha, same. Is it the ball burnished one? I remember paying $800 for mine back in 98 and I loved it.
  • 14 1
 Zaskar we’re so sweet! I wanted on so badly. I ended up with an RTS-1 with an OG gold RS.

Paid $600 for the frame and another $400 for a complete XT groupo.

People thought I was crazy spending $1000 on a top of the line full suspension bike in 95-96ish lol

 Same. GT got me into MTB. My first was a red 92 Karakoram while in college. I think my buddy I sold it to in college still has it... Caught the bug and quickly upgraded to a Zaskar and ended up having a few of those. Then moved onto a number of RTSs and LTSs. The Xizang was the one that escaped me...
  • 5 0
 I got my Avalanche around the same time. And still rolling as the city cruiser. I have the white on black one. Good times! Triple Triangle!

 The first legit bike I bought with my own money was a GT Zaskar in 1994 that I still currently own. Paid $1500 for it. Love that bike so much. I rode it all the way up to 2015. Still have the original onza clipless pedals and replacement elastomers. I think i still have the psycho KR tires that come on it as well lol
  • 3 1
 I always wanted a Zaskar, but now I can afford one they're fairly crap TBH They've really cheapened the heritage of the name...
  • 10 0
 Here for this too. So many GenX folks have nostalgia for GT. I wanted one of their chrome BMX bikes so badly in the mid 80's..and then in the early 90's the Zaskar and other hardtails were high on the list and usually decent value. We've seen outsiders try to wreck this company 9 ways to Sunday over the years, but they did hang on to some athletes for a really long time and that was nice to see. Anyways, I'm guessing this team 'gets it' and will do their best to pull on our heartstrings in 2024 with some cool bikes. Zaskar with T47 modern geo would be cool...or maybe just an re-issue model that serves as full rigid ATB. Does anyone know if GTbmx and GT mtb brands were the same owner in the later 80's / early 90's? Would this group have rights to the bmx brand (ie with the gold wing livery etc)?

 1987 Avalanche for me!!
  • 4 0
 @islander: I have a friend with a 2021 Zaskar LT Elite. The current Zaskar has a pretty nice frame. The build kit sucks but the frame has modern geo and the floating seat stays feel really nice. 66° head angle, 75° seat angle, 465mm reach and on a large. The chain stays are a bit long at 450mm but the bike actually rides quite well.
  • 7 0
 @islander: Same here. I've never had a GT mountain bike but growing up as a 90's kid there will always be nostalgia for those early 90's GT brand bikes. Having a GT performer in 1992 basically made you a god.

If I remember right GT, Dyno, Powerlite, and Auburn were all owned by GT at the time.

 @meathooker: I paid $999 for a Cannondale Red Shred in 1989 and people thought I was nuts too.

 @OceanPhil: Ah, yes, the Psyclone! They were badass as well and a couple of riding buddies had them but I never had the pleasure of owning one myself.

Funny enough, I was big into BMX in the 70s & 80s but was never into GTs. Certainly appreciated them but didn't get into them until MTB. Growing up in MD not far from Hutch, it was usually a Hutch for me. I went through JMC and Patterson phases but other than those, Hutch it was.
  • 2 0
 @TheFunkyMonkey: +1 on the BMX background haha, for me personally it was all about the P.K Rippers, Redlines, Kuwaharas, and of course Mongoose! Hutch were definitely some sweet rides--coveted by many who raced.

 @OceanPhil: yup, I pretty much wanted all those bmx bikes and Powell deck but never had enough paper route $$ to make it happen. The Xizang was just something I saw in glossy magazines...but seemed far from local's reach. The big raffle prize for my hockey club's skate-a-thon was a factory Kuwahara..talk about drool. I think the PK Rippers had a model with a cool grey matte finish...saw a few with the older kids. Good memories all around..
  • 2 0
 @EricHarger: I still have a Black Corrado! Smile Was my second ever MTB, and some crude metal math puts it at ~18-20,000km of riding so far. It's been relegated as my #2 bike since 2013, when I started riding my Trek Fuel EX9, which my younger bro sold me.
And, it seems I'm far from alone in my lust for the Xizang, but so far the stars have yet to align on that!

**And while I thought the shiny Zaskar was a good looking bike, I never lusted for it, as I was never a fan of aluminum bikes, Even today, I would prefer CM, Ti, Ti lugged w/CF tubes, etc over ally, but they've come a LONG way with alloys since 1995, so now, my bias is just a personal preference, not a legitimate concern as it once was.

 @TheFunkyMonkey: That red Karakoram was my first bike as well. Wore out every component on that thing. I too aspired for a Xizang. However I won a raffle at a local race and picked up A Psyclone. Flexy AF seat stays but what a frame for the time. I still miss it with my new mag 21's.

 Nothing says ‘stand alone company’ like being owned by a corporation boasting of 16,000 employees.
  • 42 0
 I work in a different industry but similar situation. Our corporate masters front us money to grow and we pay it back.

Other than that, they stay out of our hair but we still have access to all their resources (accounting, legal, IT, etc).

If PON stays hands off and GT grows their business, could be a good thing for everyone (inc customers).

 GT has some of the best and coolest riders in their stable. Just interesting people with unique perspectives. Brage, Jess, Wyn, Phil, Hans, Pinkerton, etc.,, and their BMX riders are also awesome. On top of that their employees are amazing folks (looking at you Coach). Excited to see where this team can go when given a little more rein.

 As a teen I would have had no business owning but always lusted after a Performer. After a very long lay off of mountain biking and working for fun at a box store, I ended up owning 4 more GTs (a Sensor, a Fury stolen by a mf'r, a Fueler, and the Force I still currently have). I hope they'll earn their wings and a spot back in the mtb zeitgeist.

I should have put more time into practicing and goofing off on the Fueler, nicely put together BMX. Alas, I had no BMX background.

 I had a Pro Performer and a Performer that probably weighed more than I did as a kid, and they were f**king awesome. Still probably the reason I entertain buying a GT today.

 Sometime around 1988, I started lusting after a PINK Performer frame hanging in the window of our LBS, "Moby Dick's" in Santa Clara, CA. I stared at that thing for what seemed like a year or so and thought of how "rad" it would be!

I finally bought it, put all my clapped out parts on it from my imitation Mongoose, looked at it for about an hour, ripped all the parts off and spray painted it black with a rattle can. LoL

 @MTBrent: I had a Mach 1 sometime around 1985. Always wanted to put 3 piece cranks on it. If I ever found that bike for sale I’d probably buy it.

 That's Gary Turner in the front middle, who never stopped making his handmade BMX bikes (just as RAD as ever, and still labeled GT, though distinct branding differences). I didn't think he had any remaining claim to the corporate namesake so maybe just a ceremonial deal here.
  • 6 0
 They've done some collaborations in the past and think they may have another coming up. Gary's son, Craig, is heavily involved these days and is in the front to the right kneeling down if I'm not mistaken.

 GT, if you read this please make all your high end bikes polished ball burnished. Make it happen.

 In 1986 the movie RAD launched me into Freestyle riding. My first bike was a Diamond Back Hot Streak, which was stolen. My next bike would be a GT Performer (1987). It was such an amazing bike. I remember studying Martin Aparijo and learning tricks by watching him. All those 80's riders were Gods to me. I think GT for awhile lost itself and the brand had too much of a dept store feel. Like Co-Op or something. It's way too good for that with a rich history and lineage. I'm excited to hear this news.

 Richard Long died in 1996. He was the marketing /business brains behind GT. Gary Turner (GT) started the company making BMX bikes for his kids (he used to weld up drag racers with chromoly). When Rich died, things went south which is why I bet Garty sold out when he could. Love to see them back to similar glory
  • 7 0
 I have always loved GT since I was a poor kid drooling over their BMX bikes but was never able to afford one. My first MTB was a 1999 Aggressor that I still own. Hopefully they get back to making innovative high performing bikes. They have a long history with some really great bikes and many successes.

 GT also got me into MTB back in the mid ‘90s. I Started as a little middle-school squid on my mom’s cromo Karakoram. I then used all my earnings from a summer job to buy a brand new 1998 LTS-2000 with the OG bomber z1 that had a whopping 100mm of travel which was considered basically the ‘90s enduro bike lolz. I rode that bike all over the Colorado rockys. I have a lot of great memories from time on that bike. It was bright red with a polished alloy rear triangle. good times…
  • 5 0
 This is great. I loved GT in the early ‘90s. I stopped riding in the late ‘90s and started again 10 years back to find GT wasn’t GT anymore. Hopefully this will get them back to being the brand they were once again.

 Man same here. I lusted after a GT Performer in the 80's hot pink of course! But, never got one. I got a Candy Apple Red Backwoods in 1995 and rode that for years off and on. Finally gave it to my nephew whop hopefully still has it. When I got back into MTB's a few years ago (after a foray into Single Speeds and Gravel Bikes) the FIRST thing I did was look at GT's. I was so sad to see they were just a department store brand. I'd love to see them back on top and competing against the likes of Santa Cruz

 OK PON.BIKE. Now is the time to take Schwinn back to Chicago. Then put Schwinn back into the hands of the dealers. Smile

PS. I know this is not going to happen, but it would be cool to see a modern Schwinn Homegrown Limited XX1 AXS. But I guess Schwinn will only be homegrown in China.

 Hopefully they retain the Sensor 29'er! While I still adore my now fully modded 2019 version, I can't deny I'm curious what GT has up it's sleeve for the inevitable replacement design......now this unusual news!

 There is one ready to be launched. I've seen it in person and am anxiously waiting for it to released. Looking at Wyn Masters social media account, you'll find the occasional posting with a mint green bike - that's it. Also pinkerton and jess blewit posted pictures of it already ladt year.

 I had a 90s GT Tempest that got me into mountain biking and was fortunate to be part of the GT Coalition ambassador team when it was around, that was a dream come true. That said, I hope this is the start of good things to come for both the consumer and the indie bike shops (IBD). One thing that I wasn't keen on as a brand ambassador was trying to promote the bikes but the IBD couldn't get any GT bikes because they all went to Dick's or at the time Performance Bicycle. Or wouldn't because the IBDs felt they weren't being valued so why carry something when companies like Transition and Norco, for example treat you better and can fulfill your orders?

The people at GT have been very good to me during my time with them but really, I hope they can make good for bike shops and customers because that has been a long time coming.

 Their business model of selling entry level bikes to department stores cut the throats of so many mom-and-pop GT dealers. I also guarantee if made for a terrible ownership experience to anyone who need customer support or service.

Look at how many people came here to comment on their original GT experience- Do you think any department store creates that kind of brand loyalty or following?

 GT still has some real winners in their lineup but the build specs are atrocious. The Force Carbon Elite is a nice design but they spec it with a Yari RC and an SX drivetrain. It was not long ago that they had Pro's winning races at the highest level.

 I think at the last Olympics in bmx, the guy who got gold was on a GT. I remember feeling extraordinary good after those Olympics, that after 3o od’ years since I lived on one ,they still can dominate. I don’t pay attention much anymore but when I do they are still at the startgate with someone on. That is saying alot.
I covet the Huntington Beach label stuff. Pound for pound Gt was the best at their price point good balance of price and value. With unbreakable USA 4130 chromoly frames . Sure I always wanted the se racing P.K. Ripper but my mom wasn’t a welder either, so that just didn’t make sense.

 Grew up wishing I had a gt performer, never got one…. Used to race a 26” thermoplastic I-drive on Hutchison pythons back in ‘05 or ‘06. Had an aluminum 26” Zaskar le hartail the blue and yellow one. Won a titanium road frame as a prime in a crit one time, but traded it for a trek stp soft tail. Ended up getting a size large sanction, but got rid of it only because I needed an xl instead.

All that to say, I loved riding all of those GT’s and enjoy remembering the rides I’ve had on them. Thanks GT and best wishes!

 How any mountian bike brand could live in a state with some of the most shit trails down the road (talking about you nemba run Wilton woods) and make anything good (which they do, fury, force ect is nothing short of a miracle. I hope gt continues to kick ass and flourish im a place that isn’t regressive for riding bikes.

 I'm very happy that GT is back in his California and I hope he gets back to what he was in his prime! I am the happy owner of a GT Team RTS of the year 1994, I used it until 2019 and I have it restored to new! A great bike, one of the best of its time!

 Wow.Finaly good news.
I worked as GT official bike mechanic for Slovenia and EX-Yugoslavia republics from 2003 to 2012.
My first GT was cr-mo timberline from 90-tis. Then i bought Avalance 3.0, next in 2004 or 05 i bought avalanche 0.0 and made it add-on g-boxx with rohloff, xentis fourspoke wheells and newer working Fox brain fork. It cost me around 4000$ and in that time i drowe an old Škoda for 20 bucks, so many thinks, i go crazy. But it was just a love in GT.
I also own and ride I-drive 0.0, 07 DHi, sanction and force, a lot of zaskars, alu and carbon, 26'' and 29'' and so on and so on.
My bigest dream was and stil is Xizang. With rigid fork and rohloff and a avid BB7 brakes will last forewer.

 I used to race my 98' Zaskar here in So Cal! That bike ripped! Sported the ATAC Stem, Manitou fork, Control Tech bars, XT triple cranks, Mavic wheelset, White Industry hubs, XT center-pull brakes, Panaracer Dart up front and a Smoke in the rear. Ah...the good ole days.

I must admit, I love my 2022 Trek Supercaliber way better these days; although fun to reminisce on the past.

 The 2019 GT carbon grade with 2x di2 blew everything out of the water in terms of value and performance. On sale for about $3000. Then they went and made it more gravel-specific 1x, price went up and availability was near zero due to GT's parent company supply issue. The 2019 was my coulda/woulda/shoulda missed buying opportunity.
At least the new carbon Grades are available and on sale 25% and more as of today.
