GBI 2.0 Story


Global Bike Inc. Annual Report 2009 Company History At, Global Bike Inc. our pragmatic design philosophy comes from our deep roots in both the off-road trail racing and long-distance road racing sports. Nearly 20 years ago, our founders designed their first bikes out of necessitythey had races to win and the bikes that were available at the time did not perform to their extremely high standards. So, they took matters into their own hands and built legendary bikes that would outlast and outperform the competition. From these humble origins, Global Bike Incorporated was born and continues to deliver innovative high-performance bicycles to the worlds most demanding riders. This heritage of entrepreneurial spirit and quest for design perfection is still the cornerstone of GBIs corporate philosophy. At GBI, we produce bikes for the most demanding competitors whether the competition is on pavement or dirt, for money or fame or just bragging rights. John Davis earned his racing scars in the mountain racing circuit in America, where he won numerous downhill and cross-country championships ...
