GT Catalogs

Here you can find a selection of GT catalogs from 1990 up to 1998.

GT was founded in 1972 by Gary turner, who welded a bmx bike for his son. And although well-known in BMX circles, declining popularity and sales in this market made them turn their attention towards the burgeoning mountain bike industry.

As with other popular mountain bike brands of the time, they marketed their bicycles through promotion of popular cyclists. GT would include famous mountain bikers like Julie Furtado and Steve Peati.

A GT bike can be easily distinguished by the use of the triple-triangle frame, where seat stays cross the seat tube below the seatpost insert.

Iconic models

1991 GT Team Avalanche

In 1991 this competition model of the GT Avalanche sported a steel frame underneath a gorgeous pearl-like paint job. A no-fuss classic mtb configuration with Biopace crankset, Deore XT trigger shifters and rigid fork.

1991 GT Avalanche

The “standard” GT Avalanche with “Daktari White” paint job is the perfect runner-up.

1993 GT RTS-1

In 1993 GT would offer their first full-suspension mountain bike with the GT RTS-1.

1994 GT Xizang LE

The GT Xizang LE from 1994 was a titanium bike decked out with Syncros components and a Shimano XTR groupset. It furthermore has the classic Panaracer Smoke and Dart tire combo, Onza bar ends, Shimano M737 SPD pedals and the RockShox Mag21 titanium suspension fork.

The GT Zaskar is probably more well-known, but this is definitely the more rare and better bike. It was literally bling all over the place.
