    what is a GT "A" Track bicycle?

    So the search function requires words longer than GT A, lol.

    I'm familiar with the GTB as well as the Pulse, but what exactly is the GT "A"? I heard about it at the track last week; the guy who explained it to me said it was a different "series" than the GTB?? 600 vs. 700?

    I don't know exactly what that means, but i'd like to learn more about it.

    any info would be awesome, thanks

    weren't the GTB and the Pulse the same bike with different stock components? That's what I remember hearing, although I could've heard wrong...

    GTB was Taiwanese made with less grade aluminum and a steel fork and the Pulse was American made with Easton tubing and a Kinesis Alu fork

    GTB

    why would you speculate on something you know nothing about? not one to nitpick, but of all the things newjacks do, guessing about what something is based on nothing substantial is the most annoying.

    The GTB (generic Track Bike) had 7000 series tubing, the Pulse was Easton. The stock Pulse was also outfitted with DA components and Mavic CXP30 rims. The GTB had a Sugino crank and hubs, Alex rims. ANd cost about half that of the Pulse.

    (some variation by model year)

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I'd be pretty surprised if "GTB" actually stood for "Genereic Track Bike" yet everyone tells me this....
