"A COMMITMENT TO WNNING" At GT winning is everything. GT has won more major BMX races than any other bicycle. GT's formula doesn't start in the winners clrcle, It starts on the drawing boord. And after the designs become prototypes they're turned over to the factory team, who thrashes them up, down and sideways.

It's this kind of testing that ensures GT products will exceed your performance needs.

THE LATEST IN TE'CHINOLOGY

GT Bicycl.es are bui It with only the finest aircraft quality, 4130 chromoly. Our factories use machinery that ensures consistent quality in every bicycle we build. So check out the '86 line of GT's" you'll see why we think "Winning is everything."

GT - THE REAL NO.1

GT's Involvement in BMX racing and freestyle goes back to the beginning of these two radical sports. Not only has the GT BMX team been the only team in history to win the ABA and NBt Na!tional#1 Team in the same year, but GThas held major titles in the ABA since 19821

Track testing is the best way for GT to get results on new products.
