GT Bicycles designs and manufactures road, mountain, and bmx bicycles — originally in the United States, and now as a division of Canadian conglomerate, Dorel Industries, which also markets Cannondale, Schwinn, Mongoose,IronHorse, Dyno and RoadMaster bicycle brands, all manufactured in Asia. GT was founded in 1979 by Gary Turner and Richard Long in Santa Ana, California and was noted at its inception for spear-heading the prominence of BMX bicycles, later for developing a range of bikes around its "triple triangle" design, and at the end of its independent history, winning a commission to manufacture a $30,000, 16lb. carbon fiber "Superbike"[1] for the 1996 Summer games. GT sponsored numerous race teams and individuals, including noted riders Rebecca Twigg and Juli Furtado.
