Located in California, GT was founded back in 1979 by Gary Turner and Richard Long. Therefore, it’s obvious that the company name derives from the initial letter of Gary Turner.

Original story

Initially, the company mostly focused its resources on coming up with the most outstanding BMX bikes at that time. And it did not take long for the company to make some breakthroughs during its lifetime. Later then, the company started to encroach on the mountain bike market and the GT mountain bikes were born.

Being backed up by a Canadian conglomerate, Dorel Industries, which also contributed to other bike brands’ success like Dyno, Schwinn and RoadMaster, GT retained a tremendous resource to serve its customers with nothing but quality.
