For 2011, GT has revamped its bike lineup with stepped-up aesthetics and selective component choices. The company did this as a part its brand re-launch (More on GT’s brand re-launch here).
One objective of GT’s for the relaunch was to make sure its bikes look more “fun”. The company went about achieving this by using color-matched anodized components and bright frame colors for certain bikes, and more subdued graphics for others–depending on the intended purpose and user of the bike.
Component wise, GT wanted to adorn its bikes with components that riders would choose if building up their bike from scratch. Highlights of this across the board include the use of wide handlebars, and high-quality tires.
The goal for GT was to portray–with its parts specs and graphics–that even though their bikes may not be lightest weight or the most recent fad, they are every-day bikes that, at the end of the day, are durable, hassle free and fun to ride.
Note: some of the following bikes were not to full spec.
